As a Samsung Galaxy Note fan, I honestly think that a second hand note will not make much difference to a newly purchased one. And based on my experience, the resale value of Samsung Galaxy Note is still high. I previously tried to put up my Samsung Galxy Notes for sale and I received 10 enquiries within 1 week. I have a few friends who shared the same experiences as mine. We are amazed on just how popular the Note is in Singapore. None of us really expected this kind of responses given that we often hear many people are laughing about the giant screens of Galaxy Note and how unusable it is as a phone. But the numbers and real experiences tell otherwise.
If you are living in Singapore and you are thinking to get a hands on before buying the upcoming Galaxy Note 2, then there are few places that you can begin with. First, start your search from what appears like a craiglist singapore. I found it musing that despite tonnes of mint conditions Samsung Galaxy Note being put up on sale, there is always buyer who is willing to pay a premium for the phone. I'm sure that if you would like to know how it feels to be holding a 5.3-inch phone and use it as a talking device, then you can find one that is still in excellent working condition for a good bargain. There is plenty of time to test out the device before you decide if the new Galaxy Note is for you.
Of course you can check out the second hand mobile stores that have been mushrooming all over this tiny island. You can walk into any neighbourhood precinct in Singapore and you can easily spot at least one second hand mobile store, whether they come in the form of a shop or just a kiosk with their glass display. At these stores, you can find wide range of popular models in Singapore. Some of these stores are offering pretty good deal. But be very careful when you walk in to these stores. If they are offering any deal that sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Make sure that you know what to look out for. Otherwise, you may find that the unit that you bought does not worth the money that you paid. Do not be tempted by the low prices that are offered. Remember that there is no such thing as free lunch in this world. There are only few possibilities on why things can be cheap. One is the availability of supply and the level of demands. If there are many secondary channels that people can get their goods from, then it is quite possible for things to be cheap. But one problem with non-official (or so-called parallel import) channels, some brands only offer local and not International warranty. What this means is that when you buy a product from one country, you have to go back to the same country for your warranty to be valid. So, the warranty coverage is definitely one thing you should verify before you proceed further with the deal.
Just ask yourself this simple question. Do they need to make money for their living? Where do they get their source from and what makes them able to sell so cheap? If there is no obvious explanation that you can find to these questions, then you know if what you are dealing with is reliable or not.
