Are Amazon Renewed Electronics Worth It? // Samsung Galaxy S20 Unboxing

Are Amazon Renewed Electronics Worth It? // Samsung Galaxy S20 Unboxing

So I’ve been buying phones for years and the one type of phone I’ve always avoided was renewed/refurbished phones. I just always found them to be too expensive to make sense. However, recently I’ve noticed that Amazon has been selling renewed phones and they are actually priced quite fairly.

So I decided to give it a shot and see exactly what it’s like. I am not sure what to expect, but I do know that the price is in line with what a good condition S20 would get on the used market. The benefit of going with Amazon is you get their backing and 90 day warranty/return policy. This makes it easier to go for it because you know if something is wrong Amazon will back it.

So lets see what exactly the experience is like and if the device is worth it!

    im thinking of getting the samsung s21 ultra in phantom silver from amazon renewed idk if i should im scared of getting scammed.

  3. Andersen Finnell on November 26, 2021 at 11:13 am

    The funny part is that that phone is not an S20. It is an S20 FE which for a new one is only $550.

  5. Dan on November 26, 2021 at 11:20 am

    Great video! Just bought a S10 from the renewed store. This helped a lot! I subbed!

  6. Fred Mandingo on November 26, 2021 at 11:20 am

  9. Cal Arrie on November 26, 2021 at 11:31 am

    nice nails cut by the way

  10. Demetrius Palmer on November 26, 2021 at 11:31 am

    Hey this is a perfect vid man for me cause imma get me an s20 ultra soon and I’ve had good experiences with Renewed Android Phones from Amazon also I’ve got Prime so I get my stuff a lot faster which is nice

  11. Sharky165 on November 26, 2021 at 11:32 am

    Nice vid with some great points and caveats, Ankit. 👍🏻 You and Travis McP are the only two tech YouTubers I follow that have made videos concerning Amazon Renewed devices.
    The only caveat I would add is that _some_ Renewed sellers on Amazon charge restocking fees, even for a refurbished phone, if you decide to return it for any reason “they” don’t deem acceptable. 😱🤬😩 I’m possibly considering going for a renewed iPhone (XS Max w/256 or 512 GB storage), so that’s one question I want to nail down with any given seller B4 I commit my $$ to a device.
    By comparison, Apple’s Cert Refurb’d program doesn’t play those restocking-fee games (AFAIK anyway), _but_ ofc their device prices are typically higher than those on Amazon Renewed.
    Your S20 looks nice & clean overall (that bottom scuff would drive me nuts, but I suppose it’s nothing that can’t be remedied with a bumper or case). Please def do a follow up video if there are any battery or other issues that make you want/need to return it.

    Got my S8 plus 2 1/2 years ago for $400. No problem. Good battery. Looked and worked like new. Will buy my next phone from them.

  13. FordCrownVic1995 on November 26, 2021 at 11:33 am

    Should I buy a S21 Renewed for $550?

  14. IceFox28 on November 26, 2021 at 11:37 am

    I wish this was true for Samsung’s official website! They actually upcharge and give you none of the accessories at all. There is no description saying it does not include the accessories and in-fact the testimonies say it does get everything (not legal for a CA business). Unlike amazon and there is no return policy when I put in an inquiry about it. I checked amazon and it costs half as much and has the accessories.

    Great video , earned my sub your voice relaxing too man can’t lie 💯👍🏽

  16. lil josue on November 26, 2021 at 11:45 am

    So you only put the sim in and worked? Wtf

  17. Fishing With Big AL on November 26, 2021 at 11:45 am

    I’m just an old head. I never by Used because it’s such a hassle if something goes wrong. I was looking for the galaxy note 10 plus 5g which I have now. I wanted another because I love the video quality. But after reading testimonials, I’m glad. This persuaded me just to look for something new.

  18. Astro Figgy on November 26, 2021 at 11:45 am

    Got mine for 602

  19. Moldorm on November 26, 2021 at 11:48 am

    I got the S20 from them a while back and the wifi kept turning itself on until it just didn’t anymore and it was definitely not unlocked because it wouldn’t accept my sims or carrier. Returned it and never bothered to get another one. Now I want to try iphone, specifically the X, and am very skeptical to get it from them again. But it’s my only option, otherwise I have to pay basically double.

  20. Msa on November 26, 2021 at 11:49 am

    There is always a return policy from Amazon

  21. Pwnisification on November 26, 2021 at 11:50 am

    I ordered an s10e renewed for 200$, will it arrive scuffed like that?

  22. Ron Cosby on November 26, 2021 at 11:54 am

    I’m always Leary of the battery in these phones. I wonder how the battery was treated and how long it will last.

  23. Mr. Pharisee on November 26, 2021 at 11:56 am

    Man i bought an s10 plus and doesn’t even have a single scratch. The only complaint i had was the battery is a little bit draining faster.

  24. Mr. Jubilee on November 26, 2021 at 11:56 am

    I’ve bought dozens of phones off Amazon Renewed. I’ve only had to return 2 and 2 iPad Pros since, all to different sellers. I’ve gotten immaculate Galaxy Note 10+ for as low as $377. Still rocking with my excellent S20 Ultra I got for $565 and now awaiting my Note 20 Ultra I got for $779. I’m gonna keep buying all my phones on Amazon Renewed and save myself lots of $$$$$.

  25. Giovanni on November 26, 2021 at 11:57 am

    Just ordered 2 from Samsung renewed. Let’s hope it’s good.

  26. MrBeastGaming on November 26, 2021 at 11:57 am

    It is selling for only $460 now!

  27. Jordan Jank on November 26, 2021 at 11:59 am

    Flashed with factory unlocked firmware, idiots enjoy….

  28. Justin Breedlove on November 26, 2021 at 11:59 am

    Had to check it out they have s20 for 480 bucks lil bit concerned. It the person who does is the gadgetdeals and has sold a bunch if Amazon I might actually check it out pretty crazy I am worried that I could get a bad nick off screen but the company is rated 86 percent not that bad

  29. Stone Cold on November 26, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    I was reading the reviews on Amazon before I saw your video cuz I wanted the same phone ! But I was reading a lot of people where having the same issues with the senors or the phone over heating. Have u had anything issues like that so far ?? And thanks for your video! Much needed to see 🙏

  30. 70s Baby on November 26, 2021 at 12:02 pm
