Should I buy a used Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G?
With its folding screen and large list of innovative features, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is an excellent choice for those looking to step up their productivity through a smartphone. Samsung’s revolutionary design will bring a new user experience as the hinge on the device allows you to prop up the phone at multiple angles.
New software included by Samsung elevates the user experience such as Adaptive refresh rate technology which brings the refresh rate of the screen up to 120Hz for the smoothest UI on the market. Users can also send requests for Wi-Fi connection to friends, meaning reaching behind the router and typing in an endless string of letters and numbers is a thing of the past.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 can also be used as a desktop PC when connected to an external display via HDMI or wireless connection, further showcasing the versatility of this device.
The design of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is perhaps its most distinguishing feature, given that the screen can unfold into a 6.2-inch tablet style device. With the Z Fold 2 you are experiencing the future of smartphones.
The super AMOLED 6.23 inch 1768 x 2208 display is tack-sharp and adaptive refresh rate technology will scale the performance of the screen depending on the user’s current task, providing the greatest saving in battery life.
The battery life of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G is strong, with a 4500mAh battery which, even given the impressive and power-consuming specs of the device, will certainly last through a full day of heavy usage with some room to spare. The Z Fold 2 has been shown to last for 10 hours and 10 minutes of continuous web surfing, which is no mean feat given the size of the screen and demanding specs of the device.
Budding mobile photographers also have a lot to sink their teeth into with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G, with five total cameras included. A bonus exclusive to the Z Fold 2 is that the user can fold the screen and use one of two screens as a live viewfinder while taking photos, meaning that subjects can view themselves and pose accordingly. Users have the choice between three lenses: a wide angle f1.8 26mm focal length, telephoto f2.4 52mm focal length, and ultrawide f2.2 12mm focal length.
A refurbished Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is an excellent choice for those looking for the most premium features available in smartphones today without breaking the bank in comparison with the newer Z Fold 3.

Saving money on your Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 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 Z Fold 2 5G. Either 256GB, or 512GB. 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.
