A quick look for the price of a new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge on major retailers in Kenya will tell you that the phone is valued at about Ksh 70K or even more.
Of course, the phone has some of the best specs and features you can find on a smartphone, leave alone the design language. However, being a 2016 flagship that has already been replaced by a new and even better Samsung Galaxy S8+, spending a massive Ksh 70K on a year-old phone is quite outrageous.
But someone at Kilimall, one of the best online retailers in East Africa, has your needs at heart. Apparently, you can grab a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge for almost half the price of the original model – an impressive Ksh 42,999, excluding shipping charges. Although not completely new, this model has been certified to be in good or excellent condition by the seller.
The seller of the phone – Mobile Phones – has a rating of 4.8 stars on Kilimall, which means it’s someone with a good reputation. With this in mind, you have little to worry about, if you happen to fancy this amazing deal.
Just so as you know what you are getting into, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge was voted as the best smartphone in 2016 during the MWC 2017 event. The phone has an excellent design that beautifully combines glass and metal with the screen featuring curved sides. The size of the display is 5.5 inches and this has a Super AMOLED QHD resolution and Always on Display feature that keeps a section of the screen display on all the time. This gives you an easier time when you want to check things like time, date and notifications without pressing a button on the phone.
The seller hasn’t mentioned the processor model under the hood, but the Galaxy S7 Edge comes with either a Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890 SoC. These two are equally powerful and in fact, you won’t notice a difference in real-world performance. No matter which processor, the RAM is 4GB while storage stands at 32GB with room to expand it via a microSD card.
For the cameras, the Galaxy S7 Edge was named as the second best camera phone in 2016, a point behind the Google Pixel’s rating of 89. These results are courtesy of a 12MP shooter on the back that ships with an aperture of f/1.7, PDAF, OIS and a dual-tone LED flash. You also get support for 4K video recording alongside a 5MP selfie shooter that has the same f/1.7 aperture.
To keep it alive is a decent 3600mAh battery unit, even bigger than the one used on the Galaxy S8+, alongside support for fast charging technology. You can still use your old USB cables for charging as the Galaxy S7 Edge uses a microUSB port and not a USB-C port. Software-wise, there’s Android Marshmallow out of the box, but an update to Android 7.0 Nougat is waiting for you, if not already on board the refurbished unit.
