The Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy S8 was released in 2017, with the advancement in technology in phones having come on leaps and bounds since then, the S8 remains a reliable and trusted option for some people. You can read the full specifications here. But as time progresses, technology has to remain updated and well maintained in order to remain working and useful. For a phone that was released in 2017, there is a higher likelihood that it may have some issues that need to be repaired.

Why do people prefer older phones?

The reason some people like to own older phones, is simply because they may not feel the need to have more features on their phone than they would need. Although newer models of mobile phones contain convenient quality of life changes, some people are simply happy with what they have. Other individuals even prefer not to own a smartphone altogether, and have opted for “burner phones”. These phones have no touchscreen, and interaction is facilitated through a keypad.

Why do smartphones get slower over time?

The slowing down of smartphones over time can be due to a few reasons, including…
  • New updates take up too much memory and processing power.
  • The memory is already full.
  • There is outer or internal damage.
  • There may be internal hardware issues
  • Software may not be compatible to your phone's specification.
  • Hardware may not be compatible with current updated software capabilities

Are older phones easier to repair?

Not exactly. Unless you have the equipment, replacement pieces and expertise in phone repair, it will not be any easier to repair an older phone than it is to repair a newer phone. In addition to this, a phone like the Galaxy S8 will have parts that are more difficult to obtain, as it is no longer mass-produced. Ordering specific parts may be more expensive than expected, that’s why visiting a phone repair specialist, or purchasing an upgraded phone, is a better option.

How much do Samsung charge to repair an S8?

Depending on the issue with your phone, a screen replacement can cost £249, whereas a battery replacement can cost £109. Although these prices seem gigantic for an old phone, part of the premium pricing is due to Samsung offering a doorstep repair, in which they come directly to you.

Cheap refurbished phones

Refurbished phones are often the most economical way of getting a high-quality phone for a relatively low price and still having excellent functionality. But it’s important to distinguish between old, used, second-hand and refurbished phones before you make a purchase. So what’s the difference? Most second-hand phones have been repaired aesthetically but not necessarily functionally, so even though there may not be scratches on the back or cracks on the screen, you don’t know that the phone is working well. On the contrary, refurbished phones have been repaired by professionals so that the inner workings of the phone have been repaired as well as the outside. That makes refurbished phones slightly more expensive than used or second-hand phones, but it’s worth it to know that the phone is working well and won’t need any urgent repairs, or professional phone unlocking

Refurbished Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus

If you’re looking for an upgrade from your Galaxy S8, we offer the Galaxy S10 Plus for £210.  This thin and light phone is powered by the powerful Snapdragon 855/Exynos 9820 chips and has heaps of memory for your multitasking needs – a whopping 8 GB, accompanied by 128 or 512 GB versions. Design-wise, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus sets itself apart from the previous generation with its offset punch-hole 10MP selfie camera, which is capable of capturing stabilized 4K footage.  The camera is the only thing interrupting the gorgeous 6.1-inch OLED display. The cameras at the back are three – the regular 12MP is joined by a 12MP telephoto and a 16MP wide-angle one, a first for the Galaxy S series. The S10 is available in Prism White, Prism Black, Prism Green, and Prism Blue.
