Not sold or fulfilled by Amazon...so not sure if it's a good deal because of that.

Great price for a great product (iPhone user (see we can all be friends and respect each others products))
Great phone and price, I dropped 8 years of iPhones for one and no regrets.
I bought an s8+ from Smartechstore on Amazon and sent it back due to a quicker than anticipated draining battery. They charged me a 10% restocking fee despite Amazon's Marketplace sellers terms and conditions stating that charging a restocking fee was not permitted.
I'm currently trying to get the money back via my bank.
I've had a poor experience from this particular seller and Amazon. Beware.

Smart tech store seem like a genuine company.
They have good feedback and have traded on amazon and the UK for a while.

Lol, cheers crazy
Is this in anticipation of the note 9 being released earlier than usual?

On a separate note, how is wow camera as a retailer? Good reviews online, but I know or online shopping junkies here are more reliable 🤑

Bought new s8 from them for £400. Was only that price for 30mins and thought they'd cancel the order but arrived in a few days. Brand new, sealed and no issues except me dropping it a few weeks later!

Could you not take it up with Amazon for support as it's against their policy? Amazon hold the funds initially so they could support a full refund.
this was the only phone I thought of going to since being with apple since 2007, that was when it was 899.. so 599 is amazing would be even better if it was fulfilled by amazon.

think you can pick up a 256gb version with dual sim for an extra 100 if I was going to buy one I think it's worth the extra money

Absolutely! I phoned Amazon many times quoting their policy and they did nothing. I made an a-z claim and was not supported by Amazon in the slightest. The experience has made me consider closing my amazon account in fact. Like I said before, I've asked my bank to step in to recover the funds.

I was under the impression that restocking fees were against consumer protection legislation.

That's disappointing to hear and shame on Amazon, I hope your bank comes through.
Is this better than s9 or s9+?

Similar experience from Amazon from an item sold and despatched from.amazon itself.. had an awful experience when the device was faulty didn't want to help after 14 days of purchase. I thought it was well dodgy!.

I'm not sure about that. I sent the phone back well within the 14 day distance selling regulations period though.
I can't advise on the best place to buy mobile phones, but it definitely isn't smartechstore/Amazon.

It is my understanding that under CCR (which replaced DSR) companies can legally charge a fee if an item has been used beyond basic ‘inspection’ of the goods. It’s not a consumer right to set up and use a device and send it back without charge but most stores don’t seem to put much effort into enforcing this. I think a lot of people think that if they pay for goods online they have a legal right to use the device, go down the pub and the beach with it, take some photos and videos at a gig etc then send it back when they’re bored.

It could be that the buyer in this case sent it back by choosing the wrong reason in the drop-down, since obviously if the phone is faulty there can be no charge. Either that or the company tested the device and found no fault.

Is this better than s9 or s9+?


No, the s9 lineup is the next generation so better hardware internals, but you also won't get an s9+ which is the similar physical size for anywhere near this price sim free yet

how could you not used a credit card to pay for this???
if amazon tried that with me i would get my credit card company to issue a charge back for the amount and the credit card merchant would also charge amazon a charge back fee
Good find SIM free, but the Carphone warehouse deal is cheaper if you get the cashback.

My bank have issued a chargeback to amazon and I do have the money back. After the investigations are complete, they will either confirm that the money stays with me, or recharge me. It's the same process as using a credit card really.

And therein lies the problem. Proving that your experience constitutes a fault or a poorly performing product is extremely difficult to prove, especially after you've sent it back to the seller.
I won't be using Amazon market place sellers in future. The market place sales environment doesn't protect buyers anywhere near as much as it should do.

You’d get no more protection elsewhere though. In fairness a lot of people do just use CCR as a means of trying things out to see if they like them. It costs businesses an enormous amount of money. Strictly speaking you’re only supposed to inspect the item.

Did they offer to send you a replacement if yours was faulty?
