    Refurbished Mobiles on eBay 3rd Oct 17 at 5:31 PM
    Hello all,

    I am hoping to get a replacement for my galaxy s5. I have another Samsung with near identical specs for 200 at tesco, but I see a number of full reformed s5 spinoffs in what they call 'pristine' condition with 1 year warranty for 100.

    I am going to use it for a sim only contract.

    Is it likely to be a false economy of get the cheaper one?

    Thanks in advance

    I bought a refurbished Iphone, was pretty much perfect until I dropped it and smashed the screen

    Luckily house insurance bought me a brand new one :-)

    nearly year ago I also bought a refurbished iPhone 6s from a big seller on Ebay, graded A+ and when it came really was like new, no marks and an original charger, no box or headphones but 1/2 new price.

  • Ah these care free days of watching #ENG score 5 goals in the first half of a World Cup match. It reminds me of... Never.
