These phones are hardly ever from UK, they are usually "recycled" in China. Their batteries never last and need to be replaced ever so often, their chargers are always fake.
They usually don't have the original gorilla glass touch panels, as they are swapped with replicas.
Usually when they are unlocked from carriers, you find that they will work on 3G buy don't support 4G networks in Africa.
These "UK used" phones have lost their waterproofing as a result of people opening them to clean them up or do repairs before selling.
Many have tendency to heat up unnecessarily.
Some have worn out camera lenses, especially those that are over 4years old.
They have tendency to just "Black out" and some times bricked and can't go past the opening logo.

All that aside, if you're lucky you can also find yourself getting a good phone with no issues at all.

My advise is that people stay away from these phones, if you want a good samsung, you'd rather buy a brand new J5 than buying an old s4.
