i have used second hand in the past and battery was decent but if you cannot trust battery just because phones are second hand then always purchase brand new

also removable battery is history

You can trust a recently released phone but not old ones like these

There's only so many cycles a new phone has gone through. 3 month old phone 90ish battery cycles at worse. 2 year old phone could have had 700 battery cycles

not really. its al depend how long and how intensive phone was used by original owner before selling it and even then modern battery dont downgrade this easily

You go and buy latest pixel 4 and i am sure you will get less juice because of lower capacity
Nice price and the added bonus of NFC, hold on can't leave the house to use it. Heat added anyway.
Great phone for this price.
Amazing camera too, but what’s the point when it no longer has google play store?

lol it has google play store

Google play store is not avilable for all huawei phones released after p30 pro
Edited by: "Raja007" 31st Mar
I have the P20 and using it for couple of years. The battery is great on that, gives me about a day accubattery shows the wear is about 3025 mah out of 3400 mah.. So not bad after 2 years of use...

Not easy to replace battery, and waiting for the latest version of software to be released (EMUI 10). I saw the P20 is in the list to get the EMUI11 as well.

As per google I guess we are safe with P20 and P30...
compact phone lol

iPhone only? iPhones already have user replaceable batteries and it will bring less durability and no water proofing

and we are out of EU any way

What on Earth are you talking about? They don’t go round retrospectively removing or killing the Play Store and GMS from the phones... it’s just the new ones that don’t have it.

Thanks for clearing that up. I had heard that even existing models would lose it when they update, but that was obviously fake news!

My bad

You said to the guy that release date doesn't matter but then in your second sentence say it all depends how long the phone was used by original owner batteries naturally degrade over time no matter how much it's used so release date is definitely relevant.

You are assuming that everyone getting the phone on release date . Its depend on when you purchase phone which might be after months or year after release date as retailers for example argos still selling brand new p20 phone even today so if i buy it tomorrow from argos and sell it after few months then i have literally used it for few months even if it was released many years ago and thats why i said that it all depend on when actual owners purchased it and how he had used it i.e had heavy usage or low etc

Nowadays, the typical smartphone that has been equipped with a lithium-ion battery will be able to go through 300-800 full recharging cycles and still retain 80% of its power. Battery life of a phone depend on many factors i.e storage capacity , temperature extreme heat or cold strain the battery, how you charge/use your phone i.e some people drain phone battery all the way to 0% or charge it all the way to 100% etc I am still using late 2013 macbook pro and battery is still excellent after 593 charge cycle i.e easily get 6 hour screen on time. Someone above said that P20 still show capcaity of 3025 after two years of usage which is not bad

when you buy second hand phones then you should know the risks come with cheap price. Best idea is to buy a second hand phone with good battery capacity and try to check everything thoroughly when you get your phone including battery life. You have 14 days of period to make sure that your phone hold charge properly and giving good reasonable screen on time . If you still worried then you can ignore deals about second hand phones and buy brand new gadgets .

Great phone. I am using it for almost two years. Best camera ever and battery still hold for one day with an average screen time 25 hours per week.

I don't understand the complaints about battery life on used phones, like you said they are maybe 80%, sometimes 70% worst case. I can live with that when buying a used phone, especially a flagship. Seems people just want the earth when they buy a phone but don't want to pay the price for it. If this is a real problem for them, then they are welcome to buy a brand new low/mid-range phone instead but they know this isn't what they want... I've had a few cheap iPhones at 80% battery health now and it doesn't affect how I use it - if it gets low, I charge it and/or carry a power bank - not rocket science...
Make sure you install a good anti virus

Not everyone wants to carry a powerbank and if you're out all day then you won't have access to a charger

I actually don't mind changing batteries (done it on iPhones and a Xiaomi phone) but this one is exceptionally fiddly looking on YouTube

1. it's not guaranteed to be useless battery, but people are just presuming it is
2. even with a brand new phone I carry a power bank, it's easy to do and it's embarrassing to run out of power in this day and age
3. if that's really a big deal then don't buy a used phone?

Yes, you can change the battery but then why buy it from CeX with warranty? Also you can change batteries on an iPhone but for the 6s onwards, the display is glued so it's not that easy. The used battery thing is just a pointless complaint - it's £120 former flagship phone, I think we can live with some sacrifices/compromises.
Just be careful of the charging point, my one has a dodgy charging point.

I'm not worried. I'm very well clued up on battery monitoring on all my devices. My point was that even while a phone is not being used, brand new or not, the battery is still slightly naturally deteriorating. I wouldn't trust these android apps that measure battery capacity by how much charge goes in; I've tried it before and it seemed pretty inaccurate. I bought a used 2017 Macbook Pro which had lost 5% capacity even though it only had twenty cycles. However, It was bought in 2017 and mainly sat in a drawer for two years.

I look after my batteries as well. I always keep them between 30-80% then deplete and fully recharge once every couple months. I also replace batteries in my devices myself (where possible), so I'm not worried about buying used devices. The one thing I like about Apple devices is that its very easy to get your exact battery wear percentage, provided you have a mac or windows laptop.
