With top of the line smartphones costing anywhere from $1500 to $2500 and beyond, and with smartphones lasting longer than ever thanks to OS and security updates, safely buying second hand via the security of a refurbished model can be a totally smart saving.
Counterpoint's Refurbished Smartphone tracker shows the global market grew 13% YoY in 2017, reaching 140 million units, compared with new smartphone sales growing just 3% last year.
The Note 7 FE with smaller battery going on sale in South Korea will also come with Samsung’s Bixby assistant, but you’ll probably never buy one.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)

5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
