Buying used phones?

Should you get a used phone, especially samsung, with few damages but still usable. From what ive seen, the used price per MSRP ratio is pretty high. But mind that greenline, black spots, and other screen issues should be avoided

    I've always bought used phones even near launch of the device they will usually have one in cex which is a used electronics store here in the UK. They're cheaper and they do a 2 year warranty

    you should just try to be rich enough that you could indulge yourself in trying out wacky buys like this without regret... We're already talking about stuff that's build to last 2-3 years. Risking money on second hand phones for your primary device is not a calming decision.

    i have not bought a new phone i think since the galaxy s7. i have never seen a reason to do so when all the reputable used phone markets sell phones with literally pristine phone screens, and only slight scuff marks to the body of phones for like almost always 40% off msrp. i think galaxy s23's right now are going for somewhere between 480-550, even the plus models are basically the same price. try to buy one new and they're basically the same price as the new s24 models. makes zero sense to me. combine that with a trade in and i could likely pay a lot closer to 350 out of pocket to have a much nicer phone for the next 2-3 years with all these "guaranteed OS upgrades" for like the next decade these companies are promising. likely that all i'd need to do within that time frame is get the battery replaced, which would cost maybe 50 at most if i know how to replace the thing myself. heat gun and a suction cup and a guitar pick and it's all done. that's if i even bother to keep it for close to 5 years. idk phones these days are all the same. there's nothing quite "Exciting" about them anymore because things have finally stabilized in hardware performance. unless you're a homosexual or a vapid teenager who "needs" an iphone to fit in, you could just get anything these days and be happy with it for the foreseeable future or until the novelty wears off.

    who even cares i barely talk to anyone over text these days and the only people who call me are scammers from india spoofing american phone numbers and introducing themselves as "steven" or something

      did this twice when phones where still only half value after a year. Nowadays not worth it in my opinion.
      I would rather buy new or sometimes people are selling phones they get from their providers. It's actually a big "scam" method dropping your phone shortly before your contract ends. Insurance says old phone not aviable anymore, you get the newest one. So sometimes you can get brand new phones for 20-30% less than new price. Bought phones like this also 2 times.

    I always buy used, these things are toys and aren't worth the ridiculous prices they retail for.

    most of my electronics were bought used and they're all fine, you just have to be smart to not get scammed
    >t. poor
    I risked buying used things twice off curiosity and kept doing it since then, not only it can get up to 2/3 cheaper but it's also more "eco friendly" comparing to buying new

    since 99% of the replacement parts in the web are fake I wouldn't buy a faulty phone. Also I think most of the time there is something bad in addition to the obvious like a faulty screen. Why would someone not replace the part when you can sell the phone for more money to more people?

    I bought used in the past. Now I buy midrange budget phones. It's the same price I was paying and the performance suits me just fine. I'd assume the used market is more expensive now because the phones themselves are.

      I've had 3 Moto phones, they all have had burn-in on the left side and eventual screen failure, they are the only phones I have ever had just straight up die on me.
      I was a complete NEET at the time and never dropped the phone(s), they were pristine.

    I buy 1-2-year-old used flagships. My latest purchase is an Xperia 1 IV, when I bought it it was almost exactly 1.5 years since its launch.
    The phone does have a few scratches, it looks exactly what a phone that was used for one and a half years would look like, but it's still lightning fast, I have a Sony a6400 so I am very familiar with the camera UI and I am very happy with the pictures that this phone can take. The only problem is the battery - I am getting about 5 hours of screen on time. I'm not the heaviest user but going on a video call for an hour and losing 20%+ battery in that time doesn't feel good. Thankfully the phone charges quite fast, from 15% to about 90% takes one hour.

    i bought a refurb phone once and it had burn in on the OLED screen, it must have been a zoomer phone
    it didn't particularly bother me, I paid 1/4th of what a new one would, but I literally use a phone as a phone, only time I use it for internet/videos would be on the shitter or if I was at the BMV or something

    Like hard drives and other hardware, I always buy used. My most recent phone, oneplus 8T, was purchased used, in mint condition, for $140; So yes.

    I always get refurbs. I just make sure to test when I get the phone. And if there's any issues at all I just return it. Only time I've had to do that was with a samsung A52 where I could notice a discolored bluish splotch on the OLED screen when I brought up a bright white background.
