Seller refurbished and black only, but does have a 12 month warranty according to the listing, seems cheap for a good quality, relatively high tech smartphone.

Locked to o2 but they will unlock for free, and of course protected by PayPal if you buy on eBay through them.

Samsung's global brand speaks for itself too of course, the S series are fantastic little devices and their flagship series.

Hot imo!

UPDATE: Seller edited listing from 129.99 to 139.99. Cheeky ^^

While that may be a good phone and is new, this is refurbished with a warranty, and cmon man, does just not compare to Samsung S5, you would also have to try using a Chinese site like Gearbest which many people have trouble from, do not receive items (sometimes) or may receive fakes. This is a UK based company with UK delivery

Generally refurbed will mean while it is obviously not new it will be in good condition as they have 'refurbished' the device and restored it to factory settings...you are right tho they're not new, still great deal imo

Awesome thing about PayPal is if you even sniff at the phone they'll give you a refund ^^

Purely observational and not wishing to join the debate, but in context: this "refurbished" item is in reality "used, good condition with scratches/blemishes, reset to factory defaults, supplied with zero accessories but with a return-to-base defect warranty provided by a company based in Channel Islands".

​hey man I love Xiaomi for cheap battery packs and ear buds but if you just looked at bare specs then everyone would be buying these wonder-drug style Chinese imports with cherry trail XMs and stuff...this is a Samsung s5 and you're trying to outdo it with a (albeit good) redmi pro. Im not buying it :P

Yes, although it's stated as being refurbished, where the "refurbished" appears to extend solely to "reset to factory default."
Not suggesting it is (or isn't) a decent item for the price, just observing that it may not appear to be what is inferred.
Additional example: listing title states "Unlocked", description states "Locked to O2 network".

​I'm here to post deals that I see fit, not to define refurbished. Used means alot of things, at least its factory reset and in good nick eh?

Not worth it. The screen is miles better on this. Oled and full HD
Considering that is locked to o2, but what's really worrying me is this:

    Moderate signs of wear and tear which may include scratches, chips or dents to screen and/or housing
Just had a software update on my S5 today.. Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).

A very good phone for the price.

​My guess is they do that to try cover themselves, honestly PayPal are so hot on anything they almost always side with the buyer, I know from being an ebay buyer and seller as many of you do I'm sure. it's fantastic phone for the price, but yet again yes, it is refurbished, 'factory reset in good condition'. do with that what you will:P
You can always return the phone if it's locked to o2. The title plus the network status is mentioned as unlocked.

I am having trouble understanding what they mean by good condition
Very good phone
Great phone but poor deal. Unless you don't mind a scratched used phone that is.
I bought one from o2 website last year. it came with very good condition and you can contact o2 to unlock with no extra cost. The phone is working great till now.

Just had a software update on my S5 today.. Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).



Indeed. We updated my OH's S5 to Marshmallow at the weekend. (Finally! Took them long enough ...) Network hadn't pushed it yet (Three) but the update is out.

Worth it now that it's off the terrible Samsung Lollipop build ....
got one of these - been using the S5 for over a year - great phone - only downside is the screen (not quality) as one drop and it will most probably smash - I am on my third screen ....

​What network are you on. Just that I have to run KitKat on mine, as lollipop causes freezes and makes phone unusable on my EE S5

And this is the fundamental problem with refurbished products on ebay, sellers make claims of refurbishment and people don't read the details expecting something almost/as new. Using terms such as 'factory reset' fools the inexperienced, you need to check for grading, if they don't grade then be very careful.

I've also had one since they first came out went to the o2 shop and got a tech 21 case since then I have dropped my phone several times and not a mark on it.
The case fits on like one of those gel things but it's made of a very tough plastic or rubber and definitely worth the £20 it cost me, probably could get it cheaper elsewhere.

No EE version of Marshmallow listed on Sammobile. Maybe not being pushed out by them just yet. (I hate it when networks drag their heels on updates even more than when manufacurers do)

Can you not install the unbranded version on an EE phone? I'm guessing not ....

Hi, price has gone up so this has now been expired. You shouldn't really change the price for a higher one, as all heat was given for a lower / better priced deal.
