Samsung now selling refurbished devices in the US
A couple of weeks after there were reports that Samsung may start selling refurbished units of its flagship phones, the South Korean company has started offering such models in the United States. According to Samsung, these handsets have been completely refurbished by Samsung’s own engineers.
They will also come with brand new headphones and chargers, and will also be covered by the same 1-year warranty that all new devices get, so essentially you are getting an almost brand new smartphone for a slightly lower price.
The latest and greatest like the Note 7 or the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are sadly not available, but grabbing last year’s big hitters is now pleasingly affordable. You’ll save $200 on a Galaxy S6 Edge, for example, as the refurbished model is only $449.99.
Consumers have often been skeptical of refurbished devices, will you go for one that has been taken care off in-house by Samsung?
