I was having a minor Bluetooth problem with my 3 month old Z Force Droid. I contacted Motorola and they authorized sending it back for repair under warranty.

When I received it today it wasn't my phone but either a new or refurbished replacement, can't tell the difference.

I want to sell it on eBay as I have a Moto Z Droid which I'm currently using and like for it's thinness. My question is how to list it, New or Refurbished? Is the a way to tell?

I don't think there is a way of telling whether or not the phone is new or refurbished. Technically since you have opened the phone it's no longer new and should e classified as 2nd hand but i don't think Motorola would send you a refurbished device after you sent them a brand new one (practically)..

So i personally would list it as 'Mint Condition', 'Never Used', 'Unboxed Only'.
It's more towards new than refurbished.

What box did it come in?

What are the warranty terms?

I agree with the "Unboxed Only" title. Sounds like a good plan.

if you want cheap refurbished smartphones which works like a charm, i would suggest you to check out Yaantra they got amazing variety of smartphones and also provide 6 months warranty, I myself purchased a refurbished phone from Yaantra & still using it

I'd wager it falls under the "Manufacturer Refurbished" category.

Maaaybe the "New Other" but I'd choose the former.
