Samsung Gear S3 Frontier with warranty scores massive $140 eBay discount

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier with warranty scores massive $140 eBay discount
It's legitimately impressive that Samsung has managed to keep the 2016-released Gear S3 smartwatch alive for so long, even after rolling out a Gear Sport in 2017, the stylish Galaxy Watch last year, and a fitness-centric Galaxy Watch Active just a couple of months ago. At the same time, it's objectively ridiculous that the outdated wearable device continues to be regularly priced at $299.99 in a "Frontier" variant at the manufacturer's official US e-store and authorized retailers like Best Buy. 

On the bright side, we've seen the Gear S3 Frontier substantially discounted many times in the recent past, with a brand-new deal on "open box" units allowing you to save a whopping 140 bucks right now while maintaining standard warranty conditions. The only small inconvenience is your warranty here comes from an eBay seller rather than Samsung itself.

Of course, we're not talking just any eBay seller, but one with a 99.8 percent positive feedback rating based on the evaluations of over 25,000 buyers who've offered their feedback in the last 12 months alone. Quick Ship Electronics will cover functionality issues for a full year after your purchase, while vouching for the mint condition the Gear S3 units on sale today will be shipped in for free nationwide.

Basically, an open box product is one whose retail packaging has been unsealed and potentially damaged for one of several possible reasons without the actual device incurring any visible damage of its own. 

At $159.99, this killer deal may well be worth the "risks", especially with free shipping and free 30 day returns, seeing as how you'll get a beautiful 1.3-inch AMOLED display with 360 x 360 resolution, a very elegant design, IP68 water and dust resistance, pretty impressive battery life, and a robust set of sensors and chips, including GPS, NFC, and a heart rate monitor. Oh, and compared to the smaller Galaxy Watch Active, the ultra-affordable Samsung Gear S3 Frontier on special offer right now also comes with a very convenient rotating bezel.

It's a great watch. I purchased this version then some months later the S3 Frontier LTE because some times I like to leave my phone behind. I gave my brother the non-LTE S3 Frontier and both watches are still going strong.

Hmmm... The description says 30 day returns, but in many other places in the listing it says no returns. Inconsist and contradictory info in a listing are a huge red flag. Hard pass on this one.
