Stay Connected On-the-go with Used Samsung Phones

Whether you're a selfie-ninja, a text addict, an email fiend, or a social media junkie, you will find used Samsung phones to meet your every need. Available in a broad range of colours and conditions, you are sure to find a phone to suit your budget on eBay.

What features should you look for in a used Samsung phone?

They may be thought smart, but not every phone model will have the functionality you need. Before buying, consider if you want the following:

  • Dual SIM: For those who keep their professional and personal numbers separate, but who like the convenience of only one handset.
  • Bixby virtual assistant: Keeping you organised and helping you stay informed according to predefined preferences.
  • Storage space: High volumes of apps and images need high volumes of storage, so decide if you need 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, or the option to expand storage capacity at a later date.
  • Bluetooth: Offering wireless connection to all of your compatible, portable devices.
  • 4G: As an upgrade on speeds, 4G LTE can be up to 7 times faster than 3G, offering a potential 150Mbps for clarity of image and video calling functionality.
  • Rapid charging capabilities: Highly convenient, not all models offer fast-charge, so check the manufacturer's site before purchase.
What networks are Samsung phones compatible with?

You might have a preferred mobile network, or a SIM that you want to use in your Samsung phone. Some of the purchase options for used Samsung phones are:

  • Unlocked: An unlocked phone is not tied to any network, meaning you can use it with any SIM on any type of payment plan, or with any existing contract.
  • Pay-as-you-go: Usually locked to a specific network (or group of networks), you will need to check that the phone you choose is compatible.
  • SIM free: Sold without a SIM card, this type of phone leaves it up to the user which SIM and network are most suitable.
What type of headphone connection is available?

Samsung has kept the standard 3.5 mm headphone jack on all its phone models, as well as including Bluetooth technology to offer a choice of audio connectivity. So, whatever type of headphones or speakers you use to listen to your tunes, you can be assured that your Samsung phone will work with them. Each used Samsung phone may have a slightly different procedure, so refer to the manufacturer's instructions before setup.
