Refurbished Galaxy S9 Plus at a glance

At 6.2-inches, the expansive dimensions of the Galaxy S9 Plus won’t be for everyone. But while it's less pocketable than smaller smartphones, the S9 Plus' large, bright screen make this a brilliant choice if you watch videos or gaming on the go.

It packs in a great camera too, with a dual lens set-up at the rear that pairs a 12-megapixel standard, telephoto lens with a 12-megapixel wide lens.

The result is that the S9 Plus camera performs exceptionally in low light conditions, helped in so small part by a very wide aperture that lets in lots of light.

The front camera is no slouch either, with a 'bokeh' mode that enables you to blur out the background. The result? Some really arresting selfies.

A 3,500 mAh battery powers the S9 Plus and we found it lasted about a day and a half before you need to recharge. And if you do run low, there's a handy fast-charge mode.

Other key specs of the S9 Plus include:

  • Speedily responsive fingerprint scanner
  • 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage options
  • Stereo speakers
  • Hard-wearing Gorilla Glass 5 construction
  • Water-resistant in 1m for up to 30 mins

What is a refurbished Galaxy S9 Plus?

What's the difference between a refurbished, or reconditioned, Galaxy S9 Plus and a new phone? Well, in a nutshell when you buy a refurbished phone you're getting a second-hand model that was returned to a retailer or network by its former owner.

It could have been returned for any number of reasons: possibly due to a fault or simply that the owner simply changed their mind.

What can you be sure of is that a refurbished Galaxy S9 Plus will have been restored to its factory settings and given a thorough maintenance check and repair. So it's effectively as good as new.

Critically, it'll be cheaper than buying a brand new S9 Plus. And significantly cheaper than buying the more recent Galaxy S10 or S10 Plus.

Should I buy a refurbished Galaxy S9 Plus?

Pros:

  • You can save a fair bit of money, if you don't mind having a pre-owned smartphone
  • Refurbished S9 Plus phones bought from reputable retailers and networks will come with a warranty. Usually for 12 months
  • It's more environmentally friendly to buy a recycled phone

Cons:

  • You won't necessarily get accessories in the box. So you may have to buy a compatible charger or headphones
  • Your second-hand Galaxy S9 Plus may not come in the original box. And you won't get that nice 'brand-new-phone' feeling

What’s the difference between a nearly new S9 Plus and a refurbished model?

Generally, a nearly new handset is one that has been returned within seven days, so it is all to all intents and purposes as good a new.

More often than not nearly new handsets would have only left their box a few times. And have been barely used by the previous owner, if at all.
