Refurbished Galaxy S9 at a glance

Samsung Galaxy S9 colours

The Galaxy S9 is a stylish, elegant smartphone with a suite of useful features. It’s also powerful and takes great photos.

Despite its super-slim dimensions, the S9 still makes room for a large, bright 5.8-inch screen that takes up almost the entire front of the phone. Teamed with the S9’s powerful AKG-tuned speakers, the result is a phone that’s brilliant for watching video, as well as gaming and browsing.

It’s also home to a 12-megapixel camera with a variable aperture that takes really good photos in a variety of lighting conditions. They’re packed with detail, with colours that really pop.

Video recording with the S9 is impressive too, especially the super-slow motion mode. And the eight-megapixel front camera allows you to blur out the background for really striking selfies.

To ensure the S9 lasts all day, it’s equipped with a large 3,000mAh battery. And in the event that you are running low on power, there’s a fast-charge mode that got us from zero to just under 40% in about 20 minutes.

Other key features of the S9 include:

  • 3.5m headphone jack
  • Wireless charging
  • 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage options
  • Robust Gorilla Glass 5 screen

What is a refurbished Galaxy S9?

A refurbished, or reconditioned, Galaxy S9 is a handset that a customer has returned to a retailer or network for whatever reason. Possibly due to a fault or the owner simply changed their mind.

When a second-hand Galaxy S9 is sold as ‘refurbished’, it means it has been restored to its factory settings and given a thorough maintenance check and repair.

The main advantage in buying a refurbished phone over a brand new Galaxy S9 is that it can work out much cheaper.

Should you buy a refurbished Galaxy S9?

Let's take a look at some of the pros and cons of buying a reconditioned phone.

Pros:

  • Because a reconditioned Galaxy S9 isn’t fresh out of the box, it’ll be cheaper than buying a brand-new model.
  • If you buy a refurbished S9 from an established retailer or one of the major networks, you’ll get a warranty . The warranty usually lasts around 12-months, though the time period will vary depending on the manufacturer.
  • Recycling phones is better for the environment.

Cons:

  • You don't get the same 'new-phone' feeling when you buy a second-hand model
  • You may not get accessories in the box. Which could mean an additional expense to buy a compatible charger or headphones
