Deal alert: Galaxy Note 8 for $525 right here!
Ever since the Galaxy S9+ came out, everyone's been scratching their heads, asking the same question — “It's all-around better than the Galaxy Note 8, but the latter still costs $110”. Indeed, the only thing the Note 8 has over the S9+ is the S Pen, but no matter how much of a stylus fan you are, it's really, really hard to justify dropping $950 on it. To top it off, its successor — the Galaxy Note 9 — is only a month away.
But hey, good news is, you don't need to grab one at full price. In fact, there's an eBay shop that's selling a bunch of Note 8 units in almost new condition for $524.99.
The item is listed in "New other" and the page claims the phones might only show minor signs of handling. No original box and accessories — buyer will get a wall plug and a generic USB Type-C cable. So, yeah, that means that you won't be getting the AKG-branded earbuds with this one. The handsets are Verizon-branded, but will also work on T-Mobile and AT&T — and not on Sprint — as per the shop's description.
The only color option you have here is Orchid Gray, a.k.a. "almost purple, but not exactly". You've got a 60-day money back guarantee, too.
