Decent deal for those looking for a cheap phone. These are "refurbished", but at least they're at a reputable seller, with this in the description:
"Each device comes like new, with all the original packaging and accessories
All adjustments and repairs are made at a Samsung certified facility, backet by our 12-month limited warranty."
Yes, that's a typo on their page.
Guaranteed to be fully functional with charger, data cable and little to no cosmetic damage. Limited 1-year warranty provided by CCR Warranty. To obtain technical/warranty assistance, contact CCR Warranty at 866-579-8436."
If either of that info is true, could be a good reliable phone with warranty. Returns should be easy if not satisfied.
Yes there are cheaper deals on refurbished/used on ebay and other odd sellers, or locked to pre-paid carriers, but this seems like a decent deal without much hassle. Wish they had these deals on S7 & S8, but hey, it's something.
I owned the S5 from October of 2014 till May/June of 2017 when I got the S8 for free after a lot of hussling on a BOGO deal and selling the spare. Only changed because of the free upgrade. and gave the S5 to my mother-in-law. She's loving it. S5 has removable battery, memory slot, and is water resistant, plus the glass is completely flat.
Friend has the S6 from when it came out in 2015 until now and he's good with it. S6 isn't water resistant and doesn't have a slot for a memory card.
