    I have a v20 and I love it very much.
    I bought refurb. screen is crap leaking and burned in spots. usb plug no longer holds the cable inside so I use a rubber band to keep it inside.
    camera glass on rear broke out of the blue and then camera started getting messed up and now is hazy and doesnt even focus. thats physical. what do I look for when buying used?

    after getting burnt by my g4 bootloop and the v20 quality issues, id like to find another v20 because it offers the swappable battery which is a HUUUUUGE benefit to me. I keep another battery in my wallet and swap while walking. I hardly connect mine through its charging port, also because its faulty.

    if the v30 or 40, which are beautiful phones had swapping batteries, of course id get those.

    You can buy them new for cheap. Why buy used?

    Wat you look for when buying used is a reputable dealer who doesn't charge for returns (no restocking fees), or a site that backs the buyer. (eBay is pretty good at that, so is Amazon, but I only have US experience, so I can't say how they'll treat you.) I've gotten refurbs that worked for years, I've gotten refurbs that didn't work when I got them.

    Then - I got a new phone from Google that stopped reading my fingerprints for a few months, then started working again. Perverse reader? Or something broken in the firmware that they finally fixed without telling us? (Of course, they were good, and kept sending me replacements, but none of them worked either. I was starting to suspect defective fingers.)

    I usually buy used/refurb on Ebay or Amazon. I check out the quality of the seller (reviews). I have gotten nice phones that are sold by ebay "stores" where they have alot in stock. I don't buy cracked screens. I bought a "used" tablet once that the seller said may have wear and tear. It was brand new!!

    You just have to do your research and shop around.
