      I've literally just received a Note 8 so I now have my Samsung Galaxy S8 in midnight black 64GB for sale.

      I got this on an upgrade with EE in April on Launch and have used it since then and i've not had any issues with it whatsoever. Its always had a screen protector applied to it (and i brand new fresh one on it now) and has always been used with a case. It comes boxed with all the bits that it came with, and also the spigen case i've used with it so far which has chipped on one corner.

      The phone is really in absolutely brilliant condition with no scratches or dents or dings on it except for one scratch on the Finger print scanner which hasn't affected the performance or use of the fingerprint scanner at all. I've taken a picture of this scratch and it actually is not as bad as the image makes it look; unfortunately this is the only bit that you cant keep covered and sods law, its the only place that has been scratched.

      The phone is currently on EE so i assume its locked to their network although I don't have a different sim card so can't check to confirm this.

      I'm not entirely sure what the going rate is but i've seen a few S8 plus versions selling for around the £520 mark so i think £450 + P&P is a fair price. Price drop to £410 inc P&P

      I'm happy to send this out signed for as soon as the payment has cleared using bank transfer.

      Here's some images - I've used a DSLR to take the pictures and while it takes amazing photo's it also picks up every single last spec of dust so please ignore this. I've added as many images from other angles to try and highlight the great condition but let me know if anyone needs anymore. This has been my daily phone so please excuse any minuscule scratches but it really is in awesome condition.

      Price drop to £410 inc P&P
      New (less dusty) and improved pictures added...


      Thanks,
      Umar

      To confirm, this is 8 months old and likely locked to EE.
      Can you also confirm whether it is under contract directly to EE, or via a third party company (see sticky)?

      As I have just bought a 2 month old S8 from here for £380 (incl. P&P) here and a new one sold yesterday for £430 here

      If you can get it unlocked, on behalf of my second daughter, I can offer £350 incl P&P.

      Hi Bud, It is indeed 8 months old but in really really great condition, and was purchased through Carphone warehouse on an upgrade.

      The person you bought one for £380 from seemed to be in a rush to sell his, I'm not at the moment and I would rather keep it than sell it for £350 so I wont be dropping that low unfortunately.

      I'd can drop to £420 + p&p and ill get it unlocked for you.

      Nope, its not unlocked but at this price you'd be mad to let that get in your way.

      I think the best guarantee is my seller rating where I've sold loads of bits on here as I've purchased new ones and I've never had any problems. Feel free to check out my feedback etc

      I'm not sure what other guarantee i can give? Is there anything in particular you'd like?

      Thanks,
      Umar

      Price wise s8s in similar condition have sold for less on here.
      If you can get it unlocked I may be interested but under the 400 mark.
      I'd be looking to pay 365 all in.

      Thanks for looking but that's a bit too low for me - i'd be willing to meet you at 400 delivered to get a quick sale done.

      You haven't really clarified the question people have been asking.

      Is this currently on a contract and are you able to get it unlocked via EE?

      It's all in the first post and repeated again in others.

      The phone was purchased on an upgrade via carphone warehouse on launch so yes it is on contract but outside of the 6 month period.

      I assume that it is locked to EE but I don't have another sim card to check this. I'll see if I can get one from a neighbour to check tonight if it helps.

      Also, as said previously, at £410 I'd have it unlocked if it isn't already.

      Do let me know if you need clarification on anything else to help.

      Thanks,
      Umar.

      That's fine thanks.
      The issue is that with it still being on contract it can be blocked should the contract not be honored so with that in mind i will withdraw interest.

      Thanks

      Fair enough - if there's anything that i might be able to offer as a reassurance let me know as i'd be happy to try.

      Thanks for the interest.

      Hi
      I'll offer £370 unlocked.
      As the previous member mentioned it's a gamble as your still on contract.

      Hello and thanks for the interest.

      I'm not sure if things have changed since my last sale but there's always been a small risk of contract phones being block from not honouring payments but this has been been a concern raised on here before. I'm not saying it doesn't happen; just I've sold many contract phones on here in the past and I've been with EE for more years than i can remember and its never been an issue :facepalm:.

      Also, I've been told and have checked on Carphone warehouse and their phones are sold unlocked so this should be the case with mine too. I'll try to get a different sim to check tonight but it should already be unlocked.

      Thanks for your offer but that's too low for me to drop to considering the state and condition of the phone and the fact that its still a flagship device; I can meet you at £400 delivered?

      Hi Buddy
      OK, I'll leave it for now. Seems like the price has started to drop on the S8's. Have seen a few for sale elsewhere at around the £370 mark.

      Thanks - no problem. Where have you seen it at £370? I don't want to price myself out of a sale so if phones in a similar condition are selling at that price then i'd be willing to drop a little more.

      I just felt that the 410 was a fair price in the market at the moment.

      How about, to save us both time, we split the difference and meet in the middle at £390?

      I do indeed but I would prefer to do a bank transfer so we don't have to mess around with fees etc.

      Let me know once you have things sold then.
