    "Minimal marks may present as phone is not brand new"

    I don't think this is brand new and unopened

    Its not a bad deal but if you read the condition description, it says it comes in a generic box and that "minimal marks may present as phone is not brand new." They are probably refurbs so deal is a little deceptive IMO

      Not refurbs but also not brand new. Condition is New: Never used.

      Brand New
      A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is applicable). Packaging should be the same as what is available in a retail store, unless the item was packaged by the manufacturer in non-retail packaging, such as an unprinted box or plastic bag. See the seller's listing for full details.

      —>New: Never used

      A new, unused item with absolutely no signs of wear. The item may be missing the original packaging, or in the original packaging but not sealed. The item may be a factory second or a new, unused item with defects. See the seller's listing for full details and description of any imperfections.

      Manufacturer refurbished

      An item that has been professionally restored to working order by a manufacturer or manufacturer-approved vendor. This means the product has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to meet manufacturer specifications and is in excellent condition. This item may or may not be in the original packaging. Please see the seller’s listing for full details.

See the seller's listing for full details.

    Avoid, definitely not new.
    Had bad experience with oz_deal (definitely not new, wrong color, can't open SIM, but, to their credit, easy return)…

    "All phones come with Samsung Australia Limited left over Warranty and our 6 Month Australia Wide replacement Warranty"
    How long is a limited left over warranty? for a "New" phone?

    always fishy, never get exactly what you expect

    Seller engages in search and browse manipulation by listing in the "new" rather than "used" category. It is arguably fraudulent misrepresentation. What does eBay do when you report these practices? Nothing.

      They investigate and possibly remove the listing if it violate's their terms and conditions.

    I would avoid this sell, just search whirlpool forums a lot of people have had very bad experiences with them.

    Yeah, bad deal with past experience.

    Cannot agree more with some comments above.

    Bought a similar item from eBay with description " Never used, New"

    However, ended with a secondhand Iphone with a Dubai user's information in the phone!

    The seller refused to return initially as the description was not described as "Brand New",which provides a perfect excuse to them, but since two dents were found at the bottom and lack of one screw , they finally shut up.

    IMHO: Try to avoiding the " New ,Never Used" items on eBay, I even more prefer the item described as " Refurbished" which tells the truth at least.

    "LEAVING NEGATIVE WILL NOT SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. Please contact us for help."

    Yes, the new never used category seems to be abused a bit for phones. I have been looking for an iPhone and most listings fall into this category. When reading the description, the phones are more like refurbished.

    To add to the comments above:

    I also got a phone from them recently, it had some obvious marks on it. They claimed it was new and wasn't refurbed, but it was definitely wasn't new — I showed it to my phone repair friend, and he said the marks on the phone were indicative of a suspected screen replacement, and that it was a pretty common tactic with (especially overseas) ebay sellers lately, to refurb and resell the phones, and use the ebay category of 'New: Never Used' which allows them to get away with adding disclaimers everywhere and reselling used phones.

    The thing is, I don't mind if it is a refurb if it is listed as such, but to list it as 'new: never used' and claim all over the listing it is not a refurb, yet have it have clear wear and tear is dodgy AF. This had more marks than my old phone, (similar model) which I had been using for a year.

    So buyer beware with these guys. Lesson learned I guess.
