It might be right to say that Samsung have dug themselves a deep hole and they are falling deeper into it right now thanks to the reports of replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 handsets overheating and draining the battery.
It seems that around 90% of people in the US who bought the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 are sticking to the handset and we are expecting many more devices to be sold.
However Samsung launched their pre-owned phone program recently and so they can sell refurbished handsets with a renewed warranty for a lower price tag.
Among the handsets is the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. These are sold for around $200 instead of $400 and $450. Other devices include the S5, S4, Note 4 and the Note 3.
Tablets are also offered and these include the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 and the Galaxy Note Pro. At the moment the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge isn’t included as they are relatively new.
Samsung is hoping that the revenue brought in from the program is going to help with the sales of the Samsung S7 and S7 Edge sales to cushion the impact of the recall saga of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
