      Yep

        darn, just got iphone 8 plus from Optus $64 deal

        •  

          At least your phone has the 2 year Australian warranty? This S8 won't.

          @IceCreamBandit:

          Warranty is overrated. Never in my life had I have take a phone back to the store for warranty. Most phone I have lasted for over 3 years. Even the Chinese phone (Xiaomi)lasted me 2.5 year until I sold it. Was still working.

          @HandsomeMonkey: car insurance is overrated as well. Never in my life have I crashed my car.

          @HandsomeMonkey:

          I liken local (phone) warranty to comprehensive car insurance.

          Both my phone and car are things I use daily and can be hugely inconvenienced without it. Warranty and insurance provide peace of mind in that I have prompt support whenever I need it.

          @HandsomeMonkey: well Samsung charges 215 for broken screen if yours is AU stock and 485 for grey import.

        • +1 vote

          @MasterNoob: not comparable. That’s like insurance for breaking the screen.

        •  

          @HandsomeMonkey: My handset was replaced in the last week of warranty,2 year local warranty.My mate received the new handset of similar value as nexus 6p was not available.Advantage of local warranty.

        •  

          @nickdunn:

          Yeah I had my phone replaced at 21 months under local warranty. (Nexus5x bootloop)

          @wxyz234: well someone’s doesnt get sarcasm

          @MasterNoob:

          So why are you taking it? If you think that you'll never crash your car. Why take it?

        •  

          @Jerryzhang:
          Do you know if Samsung fix gray imports? As far as I know they don't even look at them unless AU stock.

        •  

          @gamma: from Samsung offical website yes but it is very expensive. If you have broken screen i would say just buy a new one.

        •  

          @Jerryzhang:
          When I went to Samsung store they said its against their official policy. Appreciate if you can link up the page to where it say this.

          I agree on buying a new one, but certainly not another Samsung given at the moment they refuse to repair under warranty phone purchased from another country(not an import but purchased while in another country) and force me to go back to get the phone fixed (do not accept posting it to get it repaired either).

    Not a local stock and no AU warranty.Not Recommended.

    Huawei Mate 9 was going at $535 this week. Not IP68? with a big battery…

    Shopmonk? I am sure this phone is rooted and so many functions will not work. This company does not disclose many important things on their website. So be careful.

    • +1 vote

      If you're that worry you can just plug the phone into a PC install Samsung softwares and install your own OS.

      This phone is probably new and in sealed packaging. Why would you assumed it's rooted and many functions will not work?

      I assumed you like to make shit up very often?

      • +2 votes

        The deal with newer Samsung devices is once they are rooted, Knox gets tripped. There is no known way to reset that. Several Samsung security features rely on Knox. You don't want to buy a phone when you're not certain if you'll be able to use Samsung Pay (for instance) out of the box or not.

        • +5 votes

          Are you saying the store opened up the sealed box and rooted the phone, stuffed up Knox and put it back into the box resealed it and sell it? Wouldn't that be just a waste of time? Why would they do that?

        • +3 votes

          @HandsomeMonkey: I couldn't possibly fathom why anyone would do that. But I speak from experience. For peace of mind, I'd advise that you seek a more reliable vendor. I have had devices in the past that appeared sealed and not tampered with to the untrained eye. They turned out to be not so brand new after unboxing them.

        • +2 votes

          @HandsomeMonkey: yes dear. I bought Galaxy C9 Pro. It was $399. When I received the phone there was a sticker on it "this phone is opened and resealed by shopmonk". All manuals were in Chinese. So in nutshell they bought phone from China at lower price, removed Chinese language Samsung software and installed English version of it. And now knox and few other apps don't work

        If someone cheat then I think I have right to shout everytime and make people aware about it. I am not imposing my decision on someone. I hope you & everyone else in this community are smart enough to decide what is good and what is bad for them.

          Your claims are only half true, full history is here if anyone wants to know the details. Please stop making up stories, your claim was rejected by PayPal (Not Shopmonk)- All the details and proofs are there in the history link.

        • +6 votes

          @shopmonk: In that history you never denied the phone is rooted. And it's same discussion here. Can you please clearly write and confirm here that my claim of rooted phone is FALSE? I am happy to provide all the evidences to prove that phone is rooted.

          Prove it if I am wrong.

          You are breaching the consumer law in Australia by advertising misleading information on your website.

          I guarantee that shopmonk won't comment on this.

          @Unavailable: gee that was a bit of a rabbit hole haha, tbh I think you should have just returned the phones, when they say "unopened/not used condition" they usually mean if its in a sell-able condition so they can sell it again so you would have been fine unless you had cracks in the screen or something. I also think they shouldn't have sold it to you like that in the first place and it is misleading and not right I'll probably be avoiding them now due to this so thanks for the heads up.

    From my previous experience, I found a sim card inside my phone, so this arise a doubt that the phone is not brand new.

    • +3 votes

      They have to put an international SIM card in to unlock the region restrictions due to this being a grey import. Normally they don't leave it in.

      • -4 votes

        That's right. For some region locked phones, Technicians have to insert a sim card to unlock the phone. Its very similar to Australian Pre-Paid phones, where operators (Telstra/Optus) subsidize the phones after locking them on their network.

        • +1 vote

          No. You are again giving false information. In Australia when you unlock phones you don't remove the original software where as your company sends the rooted phones. Need evidences?

          @Unavailable:
          Wow thats a pretty weird case.
          Obviously rooting the phones can be no accident, it involves a series of complex processes. Do you think you got a returned phone that a customer rooted, then Shopmonk repackaged and sold as new?

          @King Tightarse: don't know. I bought two phones and both are rooted

          @Unavailable:
          Well a rooted phone certainly is not new and cannot be sold as such - especially with Samsung Knox. It definitely will not work as expected. I would appeal the PayPal case if I were you. Rooted phone is not new and not as advertised
          Sounds pretty dodgy from Shopmonk.

          That does seem dodgy.
          Perhaps something that's easy to get away with.

          Most users probably wouldn't know the difference between a stock or rooted phone until they find out a critical feature is missing i.e. won't update

          @Unavailable:

          Not sure why you would bother with a partial refund if that's true.
          Just go for a full refund.

        •  

          @googolplex: because I bought those phones for my relatives overseas. And it could be more expensive to get the phones back here. And when they asked for phone in original condition which was not possible as you will come to know about issues only after you use the phone

        •  

          @Unavailable:
          I believe paypal covers some/all of the postage if your relatives are willing to return the phone. Definitely inconvenient though finding out the phone is rooted some time after purchasing

        •  

          @googolplex: I would have done that but PayPal refused to cover the return shipping.

      Bought an iPhone 6plus for shopmonk. Was sealed as per factory. I also received it in 3 days to Brisbane

      There is a good reason most ozbaegainers are willing to pay a little bit premium for AUS warranty.

    Could anyone tell me if this phone has RSAP

      Had to do a quick search as I had never heard of that before. We learn something new everyday.
      And yes, I believe this phone supports RSAP
