Anyone got any experience buying from here on eBay? Thanks in advance


I have an s8+ from them, "good condition" - had one scratch on the screen, rest was perfect, invisible once I put a screencover on.

I also have an s7 edge, "good condition", home button typically marked, rest was perfect.
Bargain and bought one.

Was looking to get a S9/S9+, but this a no brainer at this price.

EDIT: Bought a O2 locked very good for £336 instead.

I've had an S8+ and currently have an S9+, and there's a big difference between the two.

Ok, but in seriousness, this has to be the least exciting phone upgrade ever and I thought iPhone 6 to 6s was pretty bad (despite Apple claiming 'the only thing that's changed is everything). There is a second camera added, like the Note 8 and Plus iPhones, but not a lot else - fractionally quicker, better fingerprint sensor position - for anyone with an S8 or S8+ I can't see why you would even bother.

Anyone ever had experiences with purchasing phones with them before? Just curious what kind of quality you should expect for very good. My main fear is there being a scratch on the screen. Cosmetic wears on the back is fine since I'd plan on getting a case anyway.

I've read the details they list, but just hoping someone who has actually put money down can relay their experience.

Was that the black version? Only seeing the grey version of O2 being available now and that turns out being £360 after discount.

This comes up in every thread. I had a bad experience so when buying used items I just go in with an open mind expecting that maybe 60/40 it will be good enough to keep. People will always tell you they've had perfect ones and then people will tell you they've had some that look like they've been dragged around behind a car - it doesn't matter anyway, even if 10 people had perfect ones, you might be the 11th that gets a bad one.

If you genuinely want one, my advice is to buy one but expect possible issues. By their own description though, scratches on the screen are acceptable.

Music Magpie have good rep on here generally.

Just buy one and if you're not happy with the condition, you can send it back for a refund.

Yeah was the black one. The good and very good was the same price. Less than £3 to unlock via Ebay.

I spotted this deal early though, so that's probably sold out now.

My main fear with refurbished phones is the condition of the battery. You can get a grey but new phone at the same price. Still, 12 months warranty and a Pristine codition S8+ at ~440 is tempting!

Yeah that's fair, I appreciate the input! I think for this price it's worth the risk.

Never bought from them so glad they have generally good rep from people here. I think it's worth taking the risk and buying one to see how good of a condition it is. I've had my eye on an S8/S8+ for a while now and I don't think I can turn down saving a couple hundred quid. Thanks for the reply!

I think you should only start to worry after 2 years really (as that's when you start to get over 500 cycles)), if battery wear and tear is a real concern, you just shouldn't be buying a used handset as that's something you have no control over and isn't explicitly stated. You could also have a phone with 400 charge cycles that had been well-looked after, never got hot and with moderate usage and then you could get a phone with 100 cycles but heavily abused, there are so many metrics when it comes to battery condition.

Never even considered the battery life, a lot of things to consider when buying a used phone. I could always open it up and replace the battery if things get too bad.

I managed to get the last Grey Very Good one, so lets hope everything goes well. Again, I appreciate your input!
I've plumped for this too, been looking for an S8+ for ages - will see what arrives.... Thanks for the deal
used phone means used battery, no thanks
Purchased a `good condition` grey s8 for £288. My first refurb phone so will see the condition. Glad Music Magpie have a good rep.
I just wanted a 12 month upgrade from my LG G5 to type me over before pixel 3 details , praying they bring back the headphone jack. Been noticing a lot recently people stating stock android phones lasting the course better than Sammy and LG phones etc due to updates and bloatware.
great deal, cheapest you will find! been looking at these for ages. would rather buy new personally, my s7 edge battery is tiring after 2 years and im quite a light user. HEAT!
Bought from Musicmagpie before - LG G3 - no marks and perfect , 12 month Warranty, phone developed a boot loop unfortunately in month 11 of the warranty. Rang them up and they asked if wanted money back as had no G3's or G4's in stock, full price of phone was back in my account within 5 days. Great company on that action alone. Heat from me
Sansung upgradesd the batteries on the s8 from the s7 so that they only dregrade by 2% or something like that over 2 years, the battery technology used in the s7 degraded 20% plus over 2 years

I was going mention that. Apparently it's about 5% a year on the S8 and + model. So 10% over two years. It's at least half the degradation of the S7, not 10 ten times less

i know.. however having watched how to change the battery looks a disaster waiting to happen. too much glue for my liking lol

If you believe them. Battery technology is pretty static as far as mainstream technology is concerned though - just lithium ion which you can't really lessen the deterioration of. Only thing I can think is that the batteries are bigger than stated and the software 'releases' the extra cells when the battery deteriorates. Other than that it sounds to me like a bit of a bold claim.

There should be a 'sell your old ****' page in here, so you can finance all these new and pointless purchases!

I don't know how or what they've done. But I can vouch for the degradation being at least 50% less than than the S7. If you use Accu battery on the Play store, it gives you the amount of lost mah over the specified charge cycles. Have cross compared to my friend's S8+ to confirm. They do indeed degrade less.

It's about £50 from Samsung I believe. I wouldn't attempt it myself, or take it to some little shop that doesn't offer any cone back if they mess something up

What are accu batteries metrics? I didn't think there were any legit battery health apps in the Play Store - was looking for one during this Apple debacle and they all seemed a bit iffy to me. Also you might have just have had a dodgy battery in your S7, or might be seeing the effects of a better CPU and newer software. There are a lot of factors that affect battery health.

It's much more than that. £80 ish I think. Agree about the little shops though, I just don't trust them at all.

That's exactly how they do it.

It's a bold claim but it holds true, after 1 year people on S8 forums have said snd proved their battery had held up extremely well.

Same results in all my phones. S6 Edge Plus too. It's a great app. The only one to my knowledge that is that accurate

Just read about it on Reddit. Android doesn't record cycle counts and general battery health to hardware like iOS and Windows so the app just guesses it based on usage benchmarks. It'll probably give you a decent idea though I guess.

It works by comparing your design capacity of your phone battery, by current battery percentage, and the amount of charge that it detects going into your phone during the charge cycle. For example, if your phone is at 50% charge, and you charge it to 100%, it will work out the amount of mah that went into the phone during the 50% charge cycle. Then it works out how much mah your phone should take at 50% given it's design capacity, and give you the current health percentage of your battery. It also records all charge cycles on your phone.

Providing your phone is calibrated properly, it's as accurate a measure as you can get without physically removing the battery and testing it with a meter.
