What is a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus?

A refurbished phone is an unwanted handset that has been returned to a mobile supplier or network for whatever reason - possibly due to a fault or the owner simply changed their mind.

If it’s refurbished, it means the phone has been restored to its factory settings and given a thorough maintenance check and repair.

Search our deals table of mobile networks and retailers to find a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deal.

Use the filters to find the right tariff of minutes, texts and data and storage options. You can also vary the balance between your monthly fee and any upfront cost.

What's the difference between a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 and a brand-new model?

In a nutshell, if the phone is refurbished, it'll have been restored to its factory settings and given a thorough maintenance check and repair.

Although a refurbished phone might not have quite the same sparkle as a brand-new model, it will have at least been thoroughly tested and should work as new.

Here's why you might go for a refurbished handset:

  • It's cheaper - because a refurbished phone isn’t fresh out of the box, it’ll be cheaper than buying a brand-new model.
  • Warranty - if you buy from an established retailer or one of the major networks, you’ll likely get a warranty. The warranty usually lasts around 12-months, though the time period will vary depending on the manufacturer.
  • Lots of choice over which device, network and allowance.
  • It's eco-friendly - naturally, recycling phones is better for the environment.

Is the Samsung Galaxy S8 worth buying?

Like its smaller sibling, the Galaxy S8 Plus is a sleek, classy-looking smartphone. But unlike the S8, it’s huge, so if you need a super-sized upgrade, this could be the handset for you.

With its high-end specs, the S8 Plus is fast and powerful and captures the perfect balance between handset size and its stunning 6.2-inch display. It also comes with very good battery life and excellent camera functionality.

As with the S8, there are still some question marks over the rear fingerprint sensor and virtual assistant Bixby - but this is still a superb flagship Samsung handset. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is available with 64GB of internal storage for your apps, files and pics. You can get this model in Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, Coral Blue, Arctic Silver, Maple Gold and Rose Pink.

How do I find the best refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals?

The best refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals will depend on your needs and how you use your phone.

You can filter by:

  • Monthly allowance - There's plenty of choice here over what you can get. Tariffs range from a minimal allowance up to unlimited everything. Pick a small one if you don't use your phone much, or lots of data if you like to browse and stream all day - though most of us are satisfied with 2GB-5GB of data.
  • Budget - Think about how much you're willing to spend on your mobile bill each month, and how much you can spend upfront today.
  • Network - Not all phones are available as refurbished handsets but you should still compare mobile networks. Some also have special offers for existing customers.

Once you've selected all the things that are important to you, you can sort the available deals by cost to see the cheapest, by data allowance to see the most generous, or just take a look at our top picks.

How do I find the cheapest refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus deals?

Signing up for a refurbished mobile phone contract is generally cheaper than a new handset contract - particularly a Samsung contract.

Each time a new Samsung Galaxy model is released, the older Samsung models - such as the S8 Plus - come down in price. As new Galaxy handsets are so expensive, choosing a refurbished contract on an older model is an excellent way to save money.

Search our deals table to see what’s on offer from different mobile networks, and consider the following:

  • Work out the number of minutes and texts you will need each month
  • Think about your data use - data-hungry apps and watching movies on the go means you’ll need a decent data allowance
  • Compare refurbished contracts by upfront cost against monthly fee
  • Pick a deal through a reseller, that is, a company that buys handsets and SIMs in bulk and passes the savings onto you.
