Samsung Galaxy Note 5 - 32GB
« on: May 30, 2017, 09:58 PM »
My old 2014 Moto X is... well, old. I wanted a newer phone for my trip, especially one that supports T-Mobile's 700Mhz Band 12. Wanting a decent phone, but not wanting to overspend (cash only), I opted for a gently used Note 5 from Swappa.com.

The Note 5 that I chose originally sold for about $800. The used one I selected was unlocked, advertised as mint condition, and came with the original (unused) charger and cable. The phone arrived today, along with the UAG phone case that I ordered separately. The phone was only $300 delivered, and the case was $14.79 on eBay.

Short story is that I'm very happy with the purchase. I am not a fan of Touch Wiz, but I'll be running Nova Launcher anyway. It won't do away with Touch Wiz completely, but it will override most of it to my liking. As for the S Pen, I absolutely love it. As soon as I started the phone it was ready for the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The T-Mobile SIM is installed and working properly.

I think we're going to get along just fine. Hopefully I'll get a chance to get everything setup to my liking tomorrow.
