Samsung S9 phone
« on: December 26, 2021, 07:55:27 am »
I have a Samsung S9 phone that I'm going to put up soon on Kijiji. It is in excellent condition, no defects, and comes with the box and the usual stuff that is included with the phone. I recently replaced it with a secondhand S20, only to get the extra low light camera lens. Samsung DeX works on the S9; those of you that came to my presentation on DeX a few years ago saw it working on the phone. It's black, 64 gb and unlocked. I'm open to offers; Kijiji Toronto has this model listed for anywhere between $170 and $250.

Nice!  Don't forget to post an update on how well the phone takes low light photos, for you Fox.

I have been shopping for just such an item Mike. Unfortunately Santa was not good to me this year. I'll check back with you in a month. I was there at the demo nite. I will also tell you that your " new " S20 is a lot less repairable. But according to Hugh Jefferies on YouTube the S9 is a peach ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HvAC8EcOHc        If all else fails, Live Long & Prosper !

That Hugh Jefferies video was really impressive; he made those repairs look easy! I'll bet, though, that he paid more for all those parts than it would cost just to buy a used phone of that type in excellent condition.

I have yet to break a Samsung S phone (I've had three), or even scratch one. They have all been good to me; maybe because I'm upgrading every 2-3 years. I have yet to put it on Kijiji; been busy with other stuff.

When I get paid then I can pay you. You can post on Kijiji and see if you you can get a good price, but myself I can see clear to your
$225 expectation. But if it fetches $ 250 then you grab that bull by the horns !  Thanks for the reply. P.S. I can put " some " money down
to hold.   Cheers.

I'm looking to replace Samsung S3 which is dying of thousand horizontal lines.  Where do you buy a new Samsung phone?  I don't need the latest S21 or folding thing, but I want fairly new, so that I can keep for another decade.

I have bought all of my Samsung phones secondhand on Kijiji.

I have bough off of Kijiji if you know and trust the seller. I now steer people to Factory Direct or the
MTC outlet in Whitby ON. I believe both ship and have a " fair " return policy. My last Samsung I
purchased from and independent retailer. It was being promoted heavily as it was his last one.

I have never known a seller I bought off of in Kijiji. I have bought a number of things that way, not just phones, and I have never gotten a lemon that way. There is a risk, of course. The communication with the seller does tell you a few things about the individual, and I always ask why they are selling. If at all possible, I try to buy items that still have some manufacturer's warranty left, but the last two phones I bought were out of warranty and I bought them anyway. With phones, I buy relatively recent high-end models. The S20 for example is two years old. When I meet the seller, I check the battery, I run a few applications and I test the touch screen before I buy it. Maybe I have been lucky and I am at some time I'll end up with a lemon.

I'd be afraid to touch any strange screens right now! I even sanitize my own phone when I get home. I have a bottle of isopropyl alcohol and I spray a kleenex and then use it to wipe it down. It's more important now than ever. I'm guessing you're not doing Kijiji buy/sells right now. If you are I won't judge you, well, maybe secretly. ;)
