The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note FE: would you buy it?

The refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note FE: would you buy it?
So, as you most probably know, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 suffered an unfortunate fate [cue overused “hot model” joke here]. After two recalls, Sammy announced that the phone will be gone from the market for good and, thus far, it has kept its promise. However, recent leaks and reports have suggested that a refurbished edition with a smaller (and, hopefully, not dangerous) battery will soon go on sale yet again (3rd time's a charm!).

Named the Samsung Galaxy Note FE, the phablet will sport the same hardware and stunning appearance as the Note 7, but a smaller 3,200 mAh (a downgrade from the original 3,500 mAh juice box). Reports say the refurbished handset will soon launch in South Korea, but don't exclude other markets just yet.

As for price, it is speculated that the Note FE will don a price-tag that's about %30 lower than the Note 7's. This would mean about $520 - $550, if the phone hits the US market. If this all turns out to be true, would you buy the Galaxy Note FE?

If given the chance, would you buy the Galaxy Note FE?

Oh, yeah!
Nope, especially not that close to the Note 8's launch
