The Pristine Samsung S8 Refurbished by QwikFone
When shopping for smartphones, users usually look for either the latest model of a certain brand, which would cost a small fortune, or a cheap phone that has much less features than can be enjoyed. Few mobile phone shoppers think of getting a flagship from a few years ago which can provide more advanced features and high-end specs for the same price as a mid-range phone or even a limited budget phone.
Samsung flagships always present its users with the most advanced features and specs which allows the phone itself to age perfectly and continue to provide value for several years after their release.
The iconic Galaxy S8 has more advantages than can be expected in a 2017 phone. Like most of Samsung's flagships, the Galaxy S8 is aging very well. It's been a few years and the S8 is competing in the market of budget phones and exceeding expectations in every aspect from design to specs to software performance.
You can now find the perfect offer for you on the Samsung Galaxy S8 refurbished from QwikFone and enjoy our complete deal package with all of the Samsung S8 SIM free accessories and a 12-month full warranty as well as our monthly instalments plan through our financing partners.

Samsung Galaxy S8 review and verdict
At its refurbished price, the cheap Samsung S8 has multiple impressive features that are worth the money. It is rare to find this design, built, and specification all gathered in a 2017 phone and remain a good drive in a 2021 setting, but the S8 has it all and with amazing quality as well.
Elegant Design with Unique Colours
The first thing to notice about the Samsung Galaxy S8 is, of course, its design. The clean-cut symmetrical design with the super thin bezels checks all points on the Samsung users' list who want an all-screen phone without any interruption in the screen by a notch, punch hole, or any other form of cutting the screen and disrupting the watching in landscape mode experience.
Only with Samsung phones that you can get a premium phone with a glass back that allows wireless charging and actually have wireless charging activated!
The support for this phone comes from a sturdy aluminium frame as well as coats of Gorilla Glass on both the front and back to protect the valuable parts within the body of the phone in case of any accidental drop.
The fingerprint scanner is placed on the back of the phone next to the camera which is a perfect choice in the sense that this placement is where the user's finger naturally lands when holding the phone. This also eliminates the hassle of having to have a home button and cut a portion of the real state on the phone's front which is now all screen.
Large Display on a Small Phone!
While the Samsung S8 is not small per se, it is relatively small when compared to today's smartphones from other brands. The Galaxy S8 dimensions are 148.9 x 68.1 x 8 mm which makes it smaller than most phones with its specs and capabilities.
For display, the S8 has a 5.8-inch screen that occupies most of the phone's front with lovely thin bezels where the top one contains the front camera and sensors and the bottom one provides the symmetry that most users all love and look for around them in everything.
The S8 display has awesome resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels. Watching YouTube videos and Netflix shows on this screen is just a superior experience and a value of its own that is not reflected in the Samsung S8 refurbished price.
Fingerprint ID & Iris Scanner
While other mobile phone creators were playing around with different designs to try to figure out where the best placement for a fingerprint scanner would be, Samsung did the obvious thing and placed it on the back, which is a great choice. Moreover, the tech giant took your Samsung phone security a step further and added an Iris Scanner which allows you to unlock your S8 with your eyes.
This feature was both mind-blowing and ahead of its time in 2017 and now, in 2020, it is the best way to unlock your phone without taking off your mask is you don't want to use the fingerprint unlock. This definitely beats Apple's Face ID!
Reliable Battery & Power-Saving Mode
The large battery of the Samsung Galaxy S8 refurbished is 3000 mAh. This capacity will help your phone last for almost the entire day without needing to recharge it except once at the end of the day in most cases.
Since the S8 has a Lithium-ion battery, which is the type of battery that almost every single smartphone brand in the market uses including Apple's iPhones, it is recommended not to leave your phone in the charger overnight in order to preserve the battery and help it last for a longer time and extend its lifetime.
Superb Camera Module
With every single Samsung phone release, the camera has to be the highlight of the phone with unmatched superior quality. While other camera phones have a slight difference, and sometimes major unforgivable differences, between what appears in the photo and what you see, the Samsung S8 camera captures images with impeccable sharpness, details, and colours that makes the photo cannot be told apart in any aspect from what you're seeing with your eyes in the scene.
