THE BEST BRAND FOR REFURBISHED/USED PHONES by MeshachMARTINS(m): 2:17pm On Oct 18, 2019
Speaking on pre-owned phones or UK used(as its popularly known in Nigeria), most individuals considers this a cheaper and better choice/option when getting a smartphone, this is because there is a minor(sometimes huge) slash in the original price (price at which a device is launched/officially sold at) of the smartphone, sacrificing either crack,dent,accessories,retail pack, or company's warranty for the slash in price.
Moving away from that, the "UK used phone market" is mostly flooded by two major tech-world giants, Apple and Samsung, while others like Sony,google,HTC,lg, and more unmentioned follows.
In this post am going to tell you the best brand to consider/go for when looking for a UK used phone.
A brand that offers more for less, that gives you more value for your money, and the name of that brand is LG.
LG isn't perfect tho, neither is any brand, one of the major aspect where they do flop is in the marketing of their device to the public, and also due to the bootloop issue faced on the lg g4 and v10(most snapdragon 808 device) it made them lose market shares to other OEMs thereby making the brand unloved/underrated. That doesn't mean they do make low/substandard phones, NO. In fact they were the first to introduce optical image stabilization(OIS) on a smartphone with the lg g2(the early starter of the bezelless race), first to also introduce the use of ultrawide angle lens and first to use Android nougat(7.0) on smartphones with the lg g5 and v20 respectively in 2016. In fact lg makes phones of high standard, but they are quickly overshadowed by competition/marketing from other OEM,thereby making the lg phone lose its value quicker than Expected. Pre-owned LG smartphone costs far less than half their launched/initial price, for instance the lg g5 was launched at $700 in 2016, but you can now get a pre-used for less than $90, meanwhile Samsung s7edge and iPhone 7/plus launched at similar price sells for between $150-250 depending on the device's condition. Not insinuating that the lg g5 was a bad device, it was better in many aspects that the s7 and iPhone 7 during its time especially in camera and other departments. Lg smartphones are usually built to last, durable and packs lot of features than its competition; from having strong build quality(metal,aluminum, corning gorrila glass), to being waterproof, to QUAD-dac audio features and lot more.
Also Lg do support their smartphones(esp. Flagships) with software updates for at least 2years, but they re slow in the distribution of updates,for instance the lg v30 and lg g6 got the pie update last september, but nevertheless, no matter how long it takes, you will still receive updates. Well, almost all if not all lg devices are underrated and they suffer the low-price syndrome, but that's goodnews, because you can get a lot of good feature at a relatively low price. Below is a short price(current) list of some UK used lg devices in Nigeria, you can Google up their specifications on gsmarena
Lg g4 15-25k
Lg g5 25-35k
Lg g6 30-50k
Lg g7 50-70k
Lg g8 70-120k
Lg v10 25-30k
Lg v20 28-45k
Lg v30 40-55k
Lg v30+ 40-70k
Lg v35 70-85k
Lg v40 70-100k
PS: price varies according to Physical condition and variant

**November 23 2019 Update**
Another phone brand to consider when searching for a OEM refurbished or uk used phone is "SONY XPERIA". This sony flagship series comes with a lot of cool features like water/dust proofing, high-res camera, 5-axis Gyro-eis for a very-well stabilized video recording(xz and up),durable battery life and design, with a reasonable 2year system update scheme.
their phones currently sells for dirt cheap prices on aliexpress now,
For example, you can get the;
Sony xperia z1 for N19,000
z3 compact for N20,000
Z3 for N23,000
Z5 & compact for N30,000
Xz for N35,000(single sim) and N40,000(dual sim)
Xzs for N50,000
Xz1 for N 65,000
..
And lot of other cool deals found on aliexpress

Any there with a sd835 and water resistance?
Re: THE BEST BRAND FOR REFURBISHED/USED PHONES by DesChyko(m): 8:14pm On Oct 18, 2019
I would advise anyone going for G-series to buy T-mobile variants if you would like to 'root' your phone someday.

Other carriers, especially Verizon do not unlock their bootloaders, which means rooting is IMPOSSIBLE.

Some G-series, although advanced, also come with removable batteries which makes replacement easy.

I still prefer Samsung devices, but I have never been disappointed by LG either.

This guy made me realize how lg is underrated.
LG v40 camera in YouTube vids every single one beat mate 20 pro,pixel 3 and note 9 pics in almost everything it's super bright isn't good as night sight but apart from that it destroyed.
In nairaland here you can bring out 40-50k get v30 with sd835, ip68, quad dac, 2k oled screen.
Instead of buying s7 same price lower specs or rn7 higher price lower specs again.
Thanks for the info martins
