I understand that it is refurbished, but actually the vast, vast majority of people are clearly happy with this company and their 2nd hand products. If you'd rather pay £269.99 to Samsung for new that is your choice, but calling them rip off merchants, as if they're cowboy builders or dodgy dealers or something, seems in my opinion to be quite unfair and rather uneducated in relation to this seller, who have an extremely good past eBay profile

Still a great phone.

Have Nova Launcher on mine and it's still going strong after over 2 years.

Going to run it into the ground as I still love it.

Was never a fan of Nova Launcher haha, altho I do like this phone

Great price, but their description of 'good condition': Moderate signs of wear and tear which may include scratches, chips or dents to screen and/or housing. That sounds pretty 'grade C' ish to me.
Also Please note – unit only, does not include any accessories. - I'd assume the back cover and battery are included but it's not specific.

This isn't exactly a BAD smartphone, personally I have an LG G3 and think you can get one for a little less than this, not sure. My mum had the G4 and now has the G5, and I STILL prefer the G3, if anything I would recommend that, the specs are fantastic. Best phone I ever had

Rip off merchants cold


loads of nonsense..if you cannot ell the difference between a product designed by technologically adavanced company and cheap junk from unknown factors of China then I have nothing more to say.specs and numbers alone don't make a product..you bing me a screen that even gets close to the quality OLED screen used in these and then we talk.

Smart ultra 6 for £100 or so, worse camera (although better with firmware updates) stuck on 5.1 and is lcd (but about the best lcd youll find) but 8 cores and better battery life. And as this is a refurb, probably much better battery life. Bit bigger, whether that's good or bad depends on point of view.

​My budget Chinese phone uses an LG (a technologically advanced company) panel that's way better than the panel on my old S5.

This is £115 ( was as cheap as £85 with Paypal voucher)

amazon.co.uk/Vod…IX2

Its nearly a year old but still better than anything under £150

The cameras on these are spectacular.

Don't be fooled and don't expect good condition

I have this phone for work and Samsung have ruined a potentially good phone with their software. hate it compared to my personal phone. cold from me.

I've been eyeing up Chinese phones as a spare for exercise tracking and playing music. Which one do you have and any tips on picking a decent, reliable one?

Thanks

Replace the Samsung software with Cyanogenmod 13 (klte) and it's fast and better on battery.

I had a friend with that issue too, unfortunately sometimes upgrades do mess up phones, not limited to this one in the least tho. Hope it sorts out mate

if the screen is scratch free, bargain.

Smart Ultra is a great phone you'll be hard pressed to find something at 99 quid to beat it, good CPU, full HD screen, 5.5'', runs the latest Android, awesome

The camera on it kinda sucks, that puts some off, and it just looks a little bland imo, but for £99 what dyou expect

I would personally spend about £150 as this can get you into a much more upgraded area of the phone market, LG G3, Samsung S5, etc.. but people have their price limits

i take it you work for these?



Mate theres nothing wrong with having a phone a while and liking it, Nova is a popular browser solution too

Really wish elephone could sort out their cameras, had my p7000 almost exactly a year now, great phone but cameras not as good a it should be. Even the vowney camera has issues.
Trying to find a suitable upgrade, but needs to have similar features, 2 SIMs + SD card, 5.5 screen, and a 2 day battery, waiting for decent reviews on the M3.

The problem with S5 refurbs by 3rd parties is that there's no official guarantee with it. A lot of people have had problem with these sort of refurbs as the phone had been taken back in due to a fault and then re-released by a 3rd party. If the phone develops a fault again, Samsung won't touch it as it's already been into them and written off and the 3rd party won't be interested after 12 months anyway.

Yes, it's cheapish but you're taking a risk if this 3rd party company doesn't take it back if it develops a fault and after 12 months, you're on your own.

Are you the Ebay seller?

500 negative reviews in the last month!

feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/…_30

I appreciate that he simply shifts used stuff and is not going to have time to check the items being sent out, but if the phone/CD/DVD/item or whatever it is he's selling doesn't work properly, he'd should be refunding and covering return postage in full, not asking the buyer to meet the cost, not leaving them out of pocket.

'He' is a big UK company selling 2nd hand, well, everything. 500 negatives in the past month compared to what?

129,000 positive in the last month. You are compared 500, to 129k. It just doesn't even compare mate

I am not the seller, I was responding to a completely unfounded comment about rip off merchants, if they were bad I would accept it, Im just a guy who saw a phone deal, but they're not, soooo
