Refurbished phones from Ebay Stores of high street shops

Found 6th Jun
Does anyone have experience of buying refurbished phones from Argos/ CurrysCPWPCWorld/ or Tesco Ebay stores? They all seem to offer 1 year warranty. Are there any differences to be aware of, or things to avoid with this? Have been waiting for s7 to drop in price but not happening and I need a phone sooner rather than later. Any good alternatives? Reluctant to source from foreign supplier as would prefer to have UK warranty to call on if need be.

​Most UK eBay retailers give 1 year warranty, cameras aren't bad, but very average I'd say. You're getting a lot of bang for buck on xiaomi phones

Experienced with both Currys and Argos on eBay. Currys have always been as new condition, and the one time I had a problem (Galaxy S4 with a SIM problem, 7 months after purchase) they refunded me as soon as they received the return.

Argos is spotty though, I've had 4 handsets from them; 2 in good condition, 1 covered in scratches and the other dented and dirty in the seams.

I had a Note 3 from Currys, condition was as new, advertised unlocked at £150 and was handset battery and s pen, turned out to be locked to ee but as I'm on EE I didn't know it was locked for several months, after messaging them they offered a full refund on return or 10% so I could unlock, I took the latter, phone never missed a beat

also had a Samsung A3 2016 for £125 shortly after release, also accurate description and made a few quid selling on, service from Currys eBay has always been good in my experience
