It can charge wirelessly, the battery is designed efficiently, and it can survive water - the Galaxy S7 can do a lot that the phone's competitors can't. Earlier this year we did a four-part video tip series to show you all of its cool features. But impressive perks translate to a pricey product.
Have you been eyeing the Samsung phones for quite some time but they've been outside your price range? As early as next year the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, and Galaxy Note 7 could become much more affordable.
The only catch is that you would be buying a phone previously owned by someone else. It has been reported that Samsung plans to start selling refurbished phones in the United States and South Korea in 2017. Some of their customers are enrolled in a one-year upgrade program, so they'll be renovating and reselling those customers' returned phones.
It's not clear what the discount will be, but we imagine it will be substantial since their goal is to sell more phones. Smartphones cost much less in China and India. Samsung hopes to conquer some of that market share by providing a cheaper product.
