Saving money on your Samsung Galaxy S22 5G through buying refurbished
When purchasing a device graded as ‘Like New’, you can expect to pay more than the same device in ‘Good’ condition, as a ‘Like New’ device will display much less cosmetic wear and appear exactly as new, just without the box. Every Samsung device that we sell is fully tested and expertly refurbished; our grading system only refers to the cosmetic condition of the device, and has zero impact on system performance. Those who are seeking out savings, then, must choose the device in a condition fitting for their price range.
Our grading system works as follows:
Fully tested with no visible signs of use, for all intents and purposes a new device with perfect functionality.
Potential for small amounts of cosmetic wear such as scratches while still in perfect working order.
Used product with moderate signs of use/ wear and tear. In perfect working order.
May have cracks, dents, chips and heavy signs of usage, though still operating to an acceptable standard (perfect working order.)
If looking to maximise your savings even further, you have two storage options to choose from with the Samsung Galaxy S22. Either 128GB, or 256GB. Opting for a smaller amount of physical storage in your device can be economical as the device itself will be cheaper and cloud services can more than make up for the deficit at a fraction of the price. Samsung offers a cloud service that provides users with 200GB storage space for just £2.60 per month.
