Deal: Best Buy has refurb'd Galaxy S7 and S7 edge at almost half price
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is not having the greatest time of it, as you'll probably have heard. But if you've been off-put by the stories of exploding batteries, it should be noted that Sammy's Galaxy S7 duo offer comparable power and design finesse without the potential danger to life and property. Since both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge have been around for a while now, their prices have begun to trickle down considerably, even though more recent flagship rivals pack mostly the same specs. If you're a fan of the S7 line, you'll be pleased to know that Best Buy has a very tasty deal on both handsets. 

Update: It looks like both models have already sold out online. In the case of the Galaxy S7 edge, at least, the Best Buy page allows you to enter your ZIP code and check for local availability. 

Through the retail giant's website, you can score yourself a Black Onyx Galaxy S7 for $370 (down from $699), or the Galaxy S7 edge in Titanium Silver for $430 -- a saving of $370 on the $799 MSRP. It should be noted that the price reflects the refurbished nature of the devices, so they're not completely brand new. Still, since this offer is directly through a renowned retailer like Best Buy rather than, say, eBay, you get that added peace of mind. 

If you'd like to score yourself a Galaxy S7 or S7 edge for a fraction of the retail price, both offers are linked at the source.

Xiaomi's devices aren't easy to purchase in places out of Asia. This refurb is quite a good deal, considering that the S7 isn't even a year old.

I just showed my interest in these exploding c4s but overall I am a technology geek so I love to know everything about newest tech such as installing c4s in a smartphone.

Going by your logic, let me inform you that the Note7 isn't the first smartphone to feature the "c4 technology".

Even though I am quite sure you're lying and trolling, best Buy isn't as busy as they use to be period, because most people shop online. It's been at least 3 years since I've visited best Buy. They cost to much and their options are to limited. Also, I expect it wont be busy if you can't buy what you want. I went to T-mobile this morning and it is totally empty; checking to see if they had Note 7's. I went right at 10AM since they are only 2 blacks away. There was a line of more than 10 people waiting with Note 7's in their hands and I had my 2. As soon as they unlocked the doors, they said we aren't expected to have any devices until tomorrow. At least 1/2 the people said they will be back tomorrow. After all you can't buy an iPhone and you can't buy a Note 7. So the fact is, no one is going to be busy if anyone wanting a phone can't get at least these 2. So your claim whether true of not, has a reason that goes beyond your ignorant @$$ trolling. But android fans claim ifans have no life, and ifams claim Android fans have no life. Trolls by definition are already dead so they don't have a life and yet always manage to be here just like everyone else. Get a life dude!

"only 2 blacks away"

18. TerryTerius unregistered

Yeah, that is not even remotely true. Brick-and-mortar stores still make up the VAST majority of shopping, and physical stores bring in somewhere around five times more than their online counterparts. For example, around 90% of every item sold in the US ultimately happens through a brick-and-mortar store. Which makes a lot of sense, because most people prefer to physically see and touch something before they buy it.

I think this is a cool deal for phones that are still new (as in, they came out this year).

16. fyah_king unregistered

I got the silver edge.

19. TerryTerius unregistered

I've had this silver edge all year, but honestly I kind of regret not getting gold again. The color they have this year is richer than what was available on the S6, and I had pre-ordered my phone so I never saw either one in person first. Oh well, hope you like your phone dude!

23. fyah_king unregistered

I like all the colors cause I have them all.:)

The question one must ask is, why are so many refurbished Samsung devices, not only at BB, retailers, and ebay? Someone is not doing a good job at Q/C. Yes all OEMs have defective devices, but Samsung takes the cake.

20. TerryTerius unregistered

I... don't think you completed your question. You said *not only at Best Buy, retailers and eBay*, but you didn't finish your thought. I'm not saying that to be rude, but it's kind of difficult to know what you're asking. And something being refurbished doesn't mean it was defective. It just means that it was restored to like-new condition, or as close to that as possible. I live in a refurbished house, there was nothing fundamentally wrong with it but it had cosmetic damage here and there that required attention. As an example.

I have noticed that refurb phones on the Verizon website get crappy reviews compared to the same device new. Might depend on who did the refurbishing. In general, a refurbished device would be one that's slightly used and returned with reconditioning. At the very least, I would expect a new battery, which is the main wear part in a phone. We bought a refurb iPad from BB a few years back, and as far as we could tell, it was brand new. Still running just fine today.
