I'm selling my wife's 1yr 7mth old Iphone 7 32GB in Rose Gold. (Feb 2018)

She's just upgraded to a Huawei P30 Pro so this is not needed. The Iphone was unlocked by O2 a while back.

Overall I would consider the phone to be in good condition. It has some minor very light scratches on the screen that can't easily be seen. One side of the phone and on the corners has some average dinks which I've taken photos of. They can be seen when out of the case, but not when inside a case.

The phone does not come with the Apple headphones as my wife lost them, but it does come with the Apple headphone adaptor. The charger cable broke about 1month ago, and we bought a replacement cable that is seen in the photo. The battery life on the phone is good.

Sold to Ads03

Price and currency: 195
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: BT
Location: Newcastle Upon Tyne
Advertised elsewhere?: Yes
Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

What's the battery condition?
My wife says the battery condition is good. she charges at night and it would last her a full day. It was 98% charge earlier today when I took the pictures, and after being on standby it's now at 94%

I just looked at the battery health section in the settings, and it says the measured maximum capacity is 85% relative to when it was new. Also the phone is supporting normal peak performance.

Will you take £150?

The battery health is a bit on the low side for me.

Thanks for the offer but it's far to low.
85% battery health is considered quite good I hear.

Spoken to my wife and she says she would accept any offers of £175

Just read this. Yes, I would have taken it at £150 but its OK you have yourself a buyer.

@Ads03 please expand on your post report regarding the condition of this used phone
A severe scratch on the camera lens, a white 'ghosting'/mark on top left corner of the screen, battery warning about not enough power being supplied and had to shutdown and speakers not sounding right like they are blown.

There are always inherent risks in buying second hand mobile phones, and as batteries are consumable items you have no claim for that aspect, you should have asked for a battery heath check report.

Please take some clear pictures of the scratch on the lens and the white ghosting you reported

Thanks

I did ask about the battery in post #2.
Thanks for the pics, clearly the lens damage and the blooming weren’t described in the advert. I’d suggest you ring him and negotiate a refund (partial or otherwise) as I don’t expect him to return anytime soon, it’s been a fortnight so far.

@Silent Bob please review this and comment if you see it.

Thanks

Hi Adam I apologise again. I would be willing to make a partial refund of £15 if that is acceptable you?
Thanks for the offer but if I'm keeping it I'd need to get the speaker fixed which looks to cost around £40

Can you please evidence this with a formal repair quote?

According to the seller the speaker was fine as verified by his wife who used it frequently. Upload a video please demonstrating how the speaker has blown as well as the repair quote

Thanks

Movie showing the difference with the ringtone, it does sound even worse in person.

@Silent Bob please don’t ignore the repeated requests to respond, failure to do so within 48 hours will respond in a exclusion and further action is highly anticipated

@Ads03 as the seller clearly has more important things to do and can’t be bothered logging in or responding you can either give it up as a bad job and I’ll deal with the admin, wait or try the legal route for incorrectly described goods (probably fruitless tbh)

@Silent Bob is living up to his username and refusing to communicate. He has consequently been excluded from the forum until this is resolved.

Failing a resolution, further access restrictions would apply.

I've been trying to phone him with no answer but looks like he has blocked my number now.

He’s been excluded permanently from trading, looks like you’ve fallen foul of a rather pathetic inattempt to raise some funds.

Don’t know where else to post this and as it would seem this issue has come to a bad end, I assume it’s ok to ask now: why has he only been banned from trading? Why not from the site altogether?

If I banned him totally, he would not be able to respond - at all! Restricting him from the classifieds during an ongoing dispute restricts him from trading, which is the primary directive because it still allows him to communicate with the buyer in the disputed thread.

I have now permanently banned him from the forum. Much like the other dispute involving the not so AwesomeDawson, I'm at a loss to understand why these two long-term members (particularly SilentBob), would wash their hands of their obligations and lose their accounts, all for the sake of a few quid via a partial refund.

It makes no sense at all. It's not a payday loan because, in both cases, the items have been sent and received. It has to be a financial situation, and one would have to assume that both members must be in dire financial straits if they cannot come up with £40 to fulfil their obligations. This is why communication and transparency with the opposite member are crucial. I'm willing to bet that had they been honest with the buyers instead of burying their heads in the sand, some latitude would have been extended for them to come up with the funds.

@Ads03, there isn't a lot more we can do. As I said to the buyer in the other thread, it's probably not worth escalating legally as you have the item - albeit, with defects. I'd fix it and sell it, but it's up to you.
