Maybe they reckon we are smart enough to decide if a warranty is important to us.

It you needed to return this to Hong Kong where they are based it will cost you more than £50. Apple give their products global warrantys so I survived, does Samsung?

Why would you bother about warranty??? I had 7 smartphones in last 11 years and non of them broke....and had 2 grey imports too. So my last S4 from eGlobal is still running fine

It says on the website that it comes with a 12 month warranty for mobiles. Unless I’m missing something

While they do offer a warranty a lot of people have reported issues with arranging to send phones back and getting them repaired in a timely manner (some report waiting months to have their phones returned).

I have a question.... My bank offers mobile phone protection / warranty (Halifax) for a reasonable price and excess. Also includes travel insurance and breakdown cover which I need too.

Does anyone know if they will honor a repair / replacement on a Grey market import or a China phone. Their terms don't mention anything about this.

Really tempted at imporing a phone but the lack of warranty puts me off on the more expensive devices.

I guess this being a Samsung it probably won't be an issue but what if it was a xiaomi for example.....

You know what would I do if it broke down ? I just put it into the bin and claim on insurance as for lost device ...and excess of £49 will provide me brand new phone

Because Samsung have such a great reputation for the quality of design and build for their phones?

Shouldn't it be covered under Samsung's international warranty? I. E. If I bought it in the States and moved to UK, it would be covered. So regardless of where the phone comes from, it's covered under the warranty. If it's not, then one must think whether this is a genuine Samsung phone or not!

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, that's right. Because nobody's smartphones EVER break. Your experience is conclusive concrete proof.

As I understand it, and I'm prepared to be corrected, Samsung warranties are region specific rather than international. In other words, if you bought a phone in the EU, you'd have to claim and get it repaired in the EU. Your US phone would still be covered under warranty, but you'd have to send it back to the US. That's the issue with buying from China. The warranty is by Samsung China, or Samsung Asia, whatever the company is, so you'll have to send it back to China to claim. Therein lies the rub.

That's very ethical advice, thanks.

Anyone else had experience of Halifax phone claim for a repair.?

So hot it could burn your bum, for those willing the warranty risk.
Well imagine many on here are not risk adverse for a good deal, so punt away.

But you'll pay nearly 3 x as much as this for the latest iphone, You could just buy another one if it breaks and sell the faulty one as spares or repairs.

Plus warranty doesn't generally cover broken screens which it seems most iDevices tend to suffer as they can't seem to survive a drop from more that half an inch from the ground!.

You're perfectly correct to make a buyer aware that this is a grey import. But I can't agree with you suggesting that this type of deal should be removed just because you value a specific type of warranty so highly.

It`s not a specific type of warranty though is it?
It`s no warranty.

"Up to 24-Month Warranty: 24 months warranty for all photographic products. 12 months for mobile, tablets, audio and others. Extended warranty available for some products."

Beside, even if it was no warranty it's still up to the buyer to make the decision if they purchase it or not.

I thought it didn't come with a warranty?

Samsung provide 2 year warranty for phones sourced from within the EU but this will be from Asia so no Samsung warranty. It’s still a deal though for anyone willing to take the risk

Well done for suggesting that we commit fraud. that is the reason why insurance premiums are so.

The glass on this phone is very fragile both in front and back. Hundreds of broken screen phones on ebay for sale. Samsung do not fix it as part of warranty but O2 is offering to fix screen for free for one time only. Therefore insurance for this phone is very expensive as well.

I have Halifax insurance and the only thing they ask is to prove that is your phone (you bought it) and give them a scan of invoice or receipt.

Ah I see. Thanks for that. Quite stupid in my opinion.

Suppose it's a deterrent to stop selling phone abroad.

I understand many retailers are angry on them as they cant match eGlobal prices, which are always best on the market. I found them exactly here on HUKD 5 years ago, made 30+ orders and always had best service possible and best price.

Avoid non-uk seller, had bad experience, not worth

FACT : seller is located in china. Do NOT buy.
