    This review is for the Verizon version of the Galaxy S5. The item didn’t meet my expectations for a refurbished phone. The phone itself operated fairly well, but it would frequently overheat. Cosmetically speaking, the screen was in good condition. There was some noticeable scuffing of the frame and some gunk underneath the back cover. I also saw some scuffs on the camera lens. The included battery didn’t hold it’s charge very well (perhaps caused by the overheating during normal use). I will be returning this phone back to Groupon Goods.

    This Verizon phone did not work with my T-Mobile SIM, even though the info on the product page said it would Also, there was a slight scratch on the camera lensI don’t know if it would’ve affected the image quality because I didn’t try it I sent the phone back The returns are free and that’s great I’m sure the phone would be great if you’re a Verizon customer

    Pretty bummed, I opened the box when it arrived, rolled it out from the bubble wrap it was packaged inside and sure enough it had ground off corners of the case. It looked like someone ran the corners of the phone on a belt sander with coarse grit. The screen looked ok, I never removed the plastic stick on cover since it was obvious that the case was in rough shape. Even the bottom of the phones silver case was indented with small divots as if it were put on small rocks and then stepped on. I am sending it back for a refund (And waiting the 14 days for the Credit Card refund). refurbished to me is where the internals are patched up and checked for function, but the cosmetics are replaced to look “Like New”. This one should have been listed as (Damaged) with the note of “Ground Off Corners with small holes pressed into plastic case”.

    Great phone arrived fast like brand new condition. Why buy a new phone? Buy a case because it’s slippery.

    The phone is a decent phone. However when it came with a unchargeable battery it’s not a good sign.

    The description in totally wrong. It was not GSM unlocked; it was strictly for Verizon. It did not come with a charger or head phones, and it arrived dead. Do not trust unless you have Verizon.

    The Samsung Galaxy S5 we received has quite rough edges where it was dropped or scratched but the front and back seem perfectly fine. A case covers that but the refurbished phone we bought from tmobile was pretty much perfect so this was a surprise. It came with no directions and plopping our sim card from tmobile into the Verizon phone did not work. The guy at Verizon told me what needed to be done so I went to tmobile and they were able to fix the settings in my phone. Once done it’s working great. You have Verizon apps that you can’t use but I was able to delete a couple of them. I’m very pleased with this phone and will get another when we need one.

    I understand now that “refurbished” is a very relative term. The phone had multiple scrapes, scratches and dents all over it. The screen was scratched up. I didn’t even bother with it for more than a minute, but printed a return label and repackaged it. Be aware, this is what “refurbished” means on Groupon. Lesson learned.

    The phone itself worked great, meaning the hardware… The POWER button fell off within a few weeks and the charging port started malfunctioning after about 5 weeks. I have had to invest in a separate charging station and extra batteries because I can’t depend on the charging port working.

    Guess I should have read the reviews. The phone was a used phone, not a refurbished one. had scratches and knicks out of the cover and what looked to be food left over stuck in the cracks where the back attaches. the camera lens was also scratched to the point that I doubt it would have looked fine at all. Total garbage.

    It was dinged up a bit but still worked. Took some doing to get it off the Verizon network it was previously setup for and inserting the T mobile sim card, then making the setting changes to recognize the GSM network so T Mobile would work. The rest was T Mobile which took a little time, but we knew that and it was smoother sailing then. Works great, I get my gmail and hotmail and yahoo now… Oh, and I can call and receive calls and texts also. :+)

    This phone keeps glitching, the speaker option doesn’t work it goes in and out. The sound is so low I can barely hear anything. It also keeps telling me to update my phone everyday even though I’ve already done the update twice. It’s aggravating to have to keep clearing the update off everyday and for people to not be able to hear me when I’m on the phone with them.
