Refurbished Samsung Galaxy A Series - Unlocked Phone

If there is a brand name that is worth the hype, it is Samsung. They have a lot to offer their ever expanding fan base that is why they are the number one top Android phone brand as their products are well demanded for.

There is no getting around it, smartphones these days are expensive. However, thanks to refurbishing, we can now lay out hands on refurbished phones. Refurbished phones are those which were either sent back by customers because they were faulty or were simply sold on by their previous owner – they'll have been checked and if necessary repaired to full working order. Usually, they do not generally come with the original packaging and may not include all the accessories, but they will have been tested, and will usually come with a warranty. Manufacturer refurbs are generally preferable by customers since they guarantee a higher standard of quality, although they're more expensive than the regular refurbished, this being also the case of Samsung mobiles.

When a phone is refurbished by a retailer, it will typically be given a 'grade'. Trading Standards has told us these grades aren't set independently i.e. these grades do not apply generally to all outlets so quality can vary, but typically they are defined as follows:

Grade A – means device may appear new or has only minor signs of handling or wear.

Grade AA – means device may have scratches, chips or other forms of light cosmetic damage.

Grade AAA – means device will show signs of wear; expect the product to look used.

If anything is more important, the warranty on refurbished mobile phones is. One of the most vital things to consider when buying a refurb is the warranty it comes with, as this provides your protection if it develops a fault.

Almost all refurbs come with one, though the length and who provides it varies. Whoever did the refurbishment will usually provide the warranty – if that's the manufacturer, then that means you can go to them directly if there's a problem, though you'll have rights with the retailer too. These warranties typically last a year, but it can be less.

If the warranty is provided by a retailer, then that's who you'll be dealing with so be aware of this before buying. Retailer warranties vary in length and may also depend on the grade of the refurbishment.

The key is to always look for positive reviews. eBay and Amazon are great for this as both have a strong integrated feedback system. There will always be more of a risk with other retailers.

Conclusion

Refurbished Samsung Galaxy S phones, especially the ones directly issued by them, are the most foolproof. They have the required warranty as the new ones do. Whatever issue they may have can be resolved almost immediately so long as it is within the warranty period.
