New Mid-range Vs UK Used Flagship? by IamDavid(m): 12:36pm On Jul 20
We all want the most exotic phones but fingers are not equal. However, some of us want flagships so bad that we prefer to buy them used instead of going for new mid rangers. This usually comes with few shortcomings like poor battery performance, some little defects, etc. However, new mid range phones are getting better these days especially with new companies offering competitive prices, now I'm having a rethink. Are used flagships worth buying?

It's expected for used phones, to have one fault or the other........

Remember, the previous owner used it for between 18/24 months, upgraded and sold it off....

It's a buyers market....... Brand new mid ranger or used flagships....... Tear rubber or tokunbo.... Buyer decides.......

Very true. But how many people are tech inclined? The camera usually bailed me out then anyways. People won't understand what you have until you take a photo of them or they see your gallery.

A UK used flagship like Samsung Galaxy s8 and s9 is better than all these new mid rangers. S8 is three years old but still a beast. 2K super amoled display, great primary and secondary cameras, retina scanner, 4GB RAM, 64 GB internal memory, MicroSD card slot. Great battery life. Exynos 8895 chipset, etc.

Don't waste your money in a new chinese mid ranger because none of them can beat s8 specs and performance wise.
