I would say It's a lottery. I've bought 2 years ago a note 8 from 4gadgets. Battery was fine for aprox 1 year and something, and then the phone started to turn of itself at around 30% charge. Changed the battery ( ebay -7quid I think) and all good now.
For people who've bought refurbished phones, is the battery life much worse than buying new or is it a bit of a lottery?
Yes it does. I can certainly notice chip struggling at times.
The 4G Note 10 and Plus are dual sim
Cex give 2 year warranty, 4gadgeta gives 1 year. Just FYI. I want this phone but will wait for further drop in price.
purchased a samsung tab s6 - good condition....just arrived and its like new!
Yes, I have. Note 10 Plus (In April last year). 2 tiny marks on the phone. Only noticeable upon close inspection. No photos unfortunately, as the damage was tiny
Bought my Note 10 plus 5G from these in April (graded good). Phone arrived and there were 2 tiny marks on the phone. Hardly noticeable and absolutely fine. Took advantage of the Valentine email they sent earlier in the week. With money off certain phones. I opted for a Note 20 Ultra (graded pristine) £859 (-£100 valentine promo). Phone arrived mid week, upon inspection I was disappointed to have received this; "PristineThese devices will be as good as new. The previous owner has taken great care of this device. The screen will be unmarked; any imperfections will be very minor. This device has been fully tested to ensure it is in full working order." Thoughts?? (confused)
I bought a "very good" s20 fe 5g and it's is pristine. Not a mark on it - but non original box and no charger. Was expecting a lot worse to be honest.
Note 9 seems to have a bang average camera if you're used to a good one. Would love that battery, though.
I have an S10 supplied from work and it can't quite beat the Pixel 2 for camera shots no matter what is thrown at it. Unfortunately as has been said before the battery is woeful, it just too small, but the upside is it's fully charged in less than an hr and ready to go again. I'm torn between a recent Redmi Note 9 and the Pixel 2 I bought, if only the screen were bigger the Pixel 2 would probably win hands down.
Ahh the Pixel 2 XL. Shout out to anyone who traded used ones in to Currys for £330 credit when they could be bought for £150. What a week that was before they got wise and shut it down. Good times! (highfive)
Is that the Pixel 1 with completely different technical specs, and a bigger battery than the Pixel 2? You mean that one?
