Getting into excellent backup territory, £179 for an s8+ is very good, though condition is good, if it isn't any good however, just return it for free.

Now need a ebay discount code

I wouldn't bother too much about the discount code as they usually inflate their prices just before these codes come into operation
Can these be easily unlocked?

Yup, costs £8.95 direct through EE, or cheaper from ebay

Got one of these for £150 the other day on Vodafone, good condition during the eBay PURE20 promotion so didn’t look like they inflated anything at all!
and Samsung charges 250 or so to fix my broken screen one which is in warranty period

1.5 years ago I bought S6 locked to Virgin from Music Magpie. When I contacted Virgin to unlock , they declined citing I was not the person the was locked to!!! Even though I had a pay monthly and a SIM only line with Virgin mobile.

I had to use eBay, where the code first given didn't work and almost bricked my phone.

Has anyone got their phone unlocked from EE after purchasing the locked phone on eBay?
Great phones which still get monthly updates and now on Pie. Only thing to look out for is battery on refurbs.

True. In fact they reduced some prices on iphone 8 by £50!

I hate it when people think everything gets inflated on ebay codes
Battery life declining badly on a two year old Samsung?
Great phone just turn off Bixby it's a pain in the rear

I hate Bixby. Especially how they tried to push it in the ads on TV! Same issue on the S9, never use it, don’t really use any digital assistants.

There are also apps to remap the bixby button to something useful

Yes I was aware of those but apparently Samsung keeps finding new and interesting ways of breaking them rather than taking the hint that we just don’t want Bixby...
Considering the battery is non removable, buying one second hand might be a bad idea. The battery is probably going to be on its last legs. Buying this brand new is a solution, but the battery will still have degraded from sitting around for two years.

It’s not really a problem and a phone sitting around for a couple of years barely degrades either as they’re not stored fully charged or drained (that’s when they affected worst). Most decent phones will not have removable batteries any more and even after 2 years I’d expect to have around 75-80% battery health which is perfectly fine. Lots of people on here complain about 80% battery health but forget they’re buying a phone at a fraction of the original cost.

True, but the fact of the matter is, if the battery does happen to die, you're going to have to shell out a fair amount for a replacement service. Unless you're able to do it yourself of course.

In fact I just got a quote now of £75 for a battery replacement.

Local phone shop will do it for £30-40 I’d imagine. And I doubt it will drop from 80% to 65-70% much in the next year. But you can check the health when you get it and if it’s really poor just return it. I’d do the replacement myself if it were me and I’d assume £10-15 for a replacement battery, glass back and glue seal sticker.

Bought one from Envirofone an S7 and it was locked to EE, had no problems unlocking mine after giving them a ring, will rush you £8.95 though. There is a freephone number you can ring to do it as well.

Bought my s8+ locked to EE from cex last year. Called EE and unlocked straight away for £8.95. I had 2 days to return to CEX if it didn't unlock.
Loony cheap £ for a flagship phone, with a camera & high res ppi screen to die for!
