The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a smartphone from Samsung Electronics that came out in 2014. It runs on the Android operating system, and is an evolution from the Samsung Galaxy S4 of the previous year.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 has a rounded chassis that is polycarbonate with a faux metal rim and cover that is removable. It can be submerged in water up to 1 metre for up to 30 minutes. This feature may be useful for those who are accident prone as it offers peace of mind for those accidents that could damage most phones.
The S5 has a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera and has 4K video recording with autofocus. It also has real-time HDR for videos and photos as well as a 2800 mAh lithium ion battery.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is an awesome phone, no doubt about it. When you buy it new, it costs more than you would have to pay to get the same phone if it were refurbished. This is the reason you might want to purchase an S5 used. You will get the exact same phone whether you pay for it used or new.
When you get a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S5 you are getting the same phone that you would pay hundreds of pounds for if it were new. It has been sent back to the factory and reconditioned so it works the way a new S5 would work. The only thing you will notice on a refurbished S5 that you wouldn’t see on a new S5 is that where may be some signs of use on the chassis from the previous owner. All their personal information has been erased at the factory, so you don’t have to worry about finding personal information from the previous owner.
Following are some benefits of buying a refurbished Samsung S5:
Lower price for a premium phone
Reconditioned to factory-like condition
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the phone to have if you want to have one of the latest and greatest phones. The features available on the Samsung S5 are the same if you buy it new or if you buy it refurbished. If it is new when you purchase it, you will have to spend a good deal of money. You will be able to get the same phone for less money when you get it refurbished.
One thing to remember when purchasing a new device like a phone is that it goes through depreciation. The phone is worth less than what you paid for it right after you bought it. Who wants to pay for something that will depreciate immediately? It’s better to buy a phone refurbished and save money. Buying refurbished means that you won’t be the first person to use the phone, but it also means you won’t have to spend as much money. It’s definitely a good trade-off.
