It says Scratch and Dent.
Does anybody have experience with this?
Worth try?

I bought the pixel 2 xl from woots scratch and ding sale a couple months ago and the condition was awful. Beat up, loose charging port, battery was torched and less than half capacity, and the speaker was dead. Great customer service for a free return, but I'd just be wary of what you might get.

I've seen a lot of posts on SD from people receiving phones from woot in terrible condition. Likely the batteries are all end of life too, if the phones are in bad condition. I think most people would be better served buying from eBay or swappa where at least you can get more info about the condition of specific phone you'll receive.

This might not be bad to be used as trade in as long as conditions are good enough to qualify.

Samsung is currently offering following trade in values.

Galaxy S7 $ S8 series - $300
S9 series - $400

On the S7 what's the difference between GSM only and fully unlocked? Is the fully unlocked if you want to use it with Verizon or Sprint?

Allow me to second the comments regarding the bad condition of S&D from woot! Keep in mind that Amazon has in part handed many listings on woot! over to 3rd parties so you're neither buying from woot! nor Amazon, but rather you could be receiving something from one of the random 3rd parties selling used phones on Amazon. That tends to keep the return experience smooth, but you need that considering that when I bought 3 S&D phones from them recently they were all borderline unusable, cosmetically dinged up well past what the description suggested, and had the following issues (in order of "you called this S&D"?!"):
  • Batteries that couldn't hold much of a charge
  • A USB port that couldn't mechanically hold a cable
  • A screen that was actually physically separated from the phone... seemingly pushed out by an expanded battery pack!
    (The phone still powered on... but I didn't wait to see if it also lit on fire)
Returns were easy but I didn't even end up with what I wanted: a single accepteable phone! Wasted time.

I'd still consider buying such phones through woot! in only very specific use cases and for very specific phones. The S7 Active is one I've bought through them with some success (though I still bought 2 just to be safe). The phone is ruggedized, so designed to live through abuse, and the presence of physical buttons limited the amount of burn-in which should be expected in older OLED phones. The next category is typically larger XL phones (like the S8+ and S9 Plus in this listing) since their larger form factor and battery size can work in their favor as they age.

A mass market phone like the S8 should probably be avoided like the plague since the sheer volume of them which were sold suggests a lot of returns from users who gladly burned up the screens with Always On Display and exposed the device to every sort of damage possible while still keeping it somehow re-sellable. From a software perspective the S8 is functional but is otherwise stranded on Android 8 (while my first-gen Pixel runs Android 10) and has shifted to quarterly updates (giving it only marginal value/functionality over something like the S7 despite a huge price premium). It's also noteworthy that Samsung partnered with ubreakifix stores after release of the S8 to basically subsidize screen repairs for the curved display... almost confirming that this design is essentially going to expose you to more breakage (curved screens haven't lit the world on fire though there's probably a few people who've managed to get them to add vale for menu shortcuts or notifications).
[For full disclosure I'd point out that I have an S8 and an S9 in my collection; I've also never felt comfortable with them in anything less that full-on Otterbox Defender]

The S7 (non-Active) is the phone I'd want to recommend most if it weren't for personal experience purchasing this through woot! and getting units whose fingerprint reader home button was damaged beyond repair. That button is a surprisingly significant weak link in the S7 design. The chewed up frames would have been acceptable but I couldn't keep as a daily driver a phone whose home button was about to pop out given the dual-purpose design (Apple phone home buttons suffered this early death of their combo fingerprint/home buttons just as severely until they converted to a non-mechanical button in the iPhone 7). Of course, if you've got other plans for this phone than a daily driver maybe you could order a few and get a clean, decently well-ordered unit.

Good luck!
Jon

Why take a gamble on a used phone like this?

Just buy from swappa so you get some sort of warranty behind the phone being as as good as it's represented, and you are buying a specific phone in a specific condition for basically a similar price depending on your condition requirements.
