Question by Nishant Saumya /

I have to buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 with voice call facility. A new Samsung Galaxy tab 2 comes for 19000 INR [Indian National Rupee] while I have just checked a refurbished Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and it comes for 15500 INR.

Should I buy a refurbished one because it’s cheap and repaired?

Anyone who has experience with refurbished products please comment…

    It depends.. refurbished electronics directly from the brand such as Samsung carries warranty and undergoes double inspection. In fact I purchased the same Galaxy Tab P3100 at Rs.13500 from and made a huge savings. The tab is working fine amd what I suggest you should look for the manufacturer warranty which Gobol is providing in this case as major point while buying a refurbished stuff

    Rs.15500/- is too costly to have this product as a refurbished.Better buy a phone at this price range with big screen possible.

    I purchased a factory refurbished Acer A500 32gb tablet and would not recommend buying refurbished to anyone. In the future, if it is electronic, I will buy new. The limited warranty time is not long enough to discover all that may be wrong with your device.

    I would safe a little more and then get it brand new, avoid possible (and likely) disappointments.

    i agree for the small savings you get refurbished is a high risk never had good experience. i dont fall for that anymore

  • Jim Chambers

    I hope Samsung factory refurbs are better than my experience with Lenovo laptop. I got and returned 3 one after the other because each completely failed in less than a day.

    if it is refurbished by Samsung then should be more reliable than from third party sources, final decision should be yours.

  • Bhavuk Jain

    It is available for Rs.16890/- at so you should buy a new one instead of a refurbished.

      At it says the list price is some Rs. 23,500 odd and the offer price around Rs. 21,500 odd, so I dunno where you fot this magic figure. If this was the offer price at in India for a new device, there will be a beeline for it. Kindly provide the full url link please of the timtara offer.

    I don't know INR currency but that doesn't seem like a big enough discount to lose the warranty. Not saying that refurbished products aren't good or anything....

    Nope, don't ever buy refurbished electronics. They won't last for very long!
