Second hand mobile phone

25
Found 31st Dec 2017
My mobile phone (Elephone P7000) has come to an end. I don't want to buy from China or Chinese EU warehouse. I don't want to spend too much either. I bought for my wife a Moto G5 Plus which seems like a good phone, but it is still near the £200 mark. I was thinking going second hand (refurbished with warranty) from a decent Ebay seller. I was looking at some LG 4 (camera is important to me), I know with second hand it's always a gamble. Anyone to recommend a seller on Ebay with whom they dealt with and even a decent Android phone with a budget of £120. TIA

All phone are chinese as far as I know, but i bought 2 phones from GearBest, and 1 of them went wrong and had to take a partial refund instead of sending it back, Amazon, if something goes wrong, one call and it's sorted, that's why

My son had a Wyleyfox bought from Amazon, and it had to go back (thankfully it was 1 month before the warranty run out), but fair play to Amazon, they gave us a full refund. That's just luck with mobile phone, you hear people having problem with £600 phones

Avoid g4. They die with hardware fault. A few about that have been fixed under warranty and come up for sale to off load them before they die again. Buy a new phone or go contract. I buy all my phones new now. Lg g5 is a good phone around £290... Just a side note. I bought 3 mint phones off ebay. All had faults including the LG g4 which died after 8 months or so. No warranty so buy Chinese if money is an issue. I do

Thanks, actually somebody just gave me an unlocked Vodafone Smart Ultra 6 for nothing. I am going to use this until i see some bargain. You got a point about going new, I bought a so called new/refurbished iPhone 5 for my daughter a while back, and it has been problem all the way. Thank you
