    Purchasing a used or refurbished LG V20. Options:
    Amazon...will be a "third party vendor"...some are not so reliable kr trustworthy, however amazon tends to cover stuff that vendors sell. Companies like newegg don't.

    Swappa:. Probably less shady sellers that some of the amazon vendors but despite aome reassurance from Swappa, its totally up to the seller to warranty or make good on defective gear. And PayPal dispute, which typically is not clean or speedy.

    So, if you were going for a mint or refurbished phone, which would you rather go with, amazon or Swappa?

    It used to be Swappa - individual sellers and almost all of them sold what they represented. Now that it's been flooded with "refurbishers", many of whom are selling junk (like phones that have gotten wet), I stay with Amazon. As you said, Amazon backs the sale, and will make sure you get a full refund.

    Amazon can be a great option for buying used phones since they have a good return/ refund policy. I'd try to get a phone in like new condition from an individual seller on Amazon instead of refurbished which often don't include original charger and cable.

    After my daughter laundered her previous device, we got a V20 from tetchy tech on ebay. Device came as described, so I didn't need to exercise the advertised return policy. Price was excellent at $160 or so, and it has since received updates.

    I do swappa myself, but like the poster above, it has come littered with resellers, so you have to weed them out and try to find the good private sellers.
