Thank you to everyone who participated in our first Community Picks!
We've closed the voting polls and will return on Wednesday, November 3, to share the winning phone you want added to our Certified Pre-Owned Catalogue.

We’re back with another round of Community Picks!
What is Community Picks?
Since we started offering CPO (Certified Pre-Owned) phones, there’s been a growing number of customers asking for more options to choose from. This has sparked our interest to find out which CPO phones you would like to see added to our catalogue for a limited time, at a special discounted price!.
Our Certified Pre-Owned phones are refurbished phones that are tested, inspected, cleaned and re-packaged to look and function like new. Because of this, we are able to offer them at a price you and your wallet will love.
Vote for your Community Picks choice:
We want to hear from you! We have chosen 3 great phones, but we need your input on which one will be the newest addition to our Certified Pre-Owned catalogue.
How to Vote:
Visit this link and select your favourite CPO phone. Voting will close on November 1
CPO Phone Picks
Once voting has closed, the phone with the most votes will be crowned the Community Picks winner, and will be included in our CPO Catalogue with a discount for a limited time only. We’ll announce the winning device and offer details in a follow-up post. Stay tuned!

No kidding....then we could actually vote on which phone will make it in the line up?😃
Remember the "winning" phone will be offered at a promo price for a short time. So even if it is on the list now it could get a lower sale price if it wins.

@pkaraa A link to bestbuys.ca would have helped. Having said that chances are the bestbuy.ca s10 is most likely being sold by a Scummy Market Place seller with restocking fee and pretty much no warranty.
@chukdefatey Sorry, will disagree on your assessment of Market Place sellers on BB. Have bought some items through a few of these sellers and, so far, I'm quite satisfied with the orders, delivery and price.
Of course, YMMV and some due diligence is needed beforehand.
@gpixel4 Can you explain how you mean, recalibrate? I've heard that means letting the battery totally die and then charging to 100% full. Is that what you're referring to?
That said I've never noticed much change when I've done that. I normally try to stick between about 30% and 90% but sometimes, maybe once a month, I'll need more heavy usage or get distracted with something when charging and it's at 100% already. I find for some reason once I hit 30% it discharges faster, even without heavy use but I can't plug it in yet for whatever reason
That's a whole lot of ramble about battery !Lol
The days of user replaceable batteries were awesome! I'd much rather that than the water proof because I still don't even trust it. Fear I got the one that didn't seal properly and I'd be out 500$ (bought it outright brand new couple years ago)
I've heard that means letting the battery totally die and then charging to 100% full. Is that what you're referring to?
yes. you need to do it at least twice.
if you're still experiencing quick discharges. then repeat it one more time
keeping the phone inbetween 30-90 ranges is what causes the memory issue in the software. and why your device drains quickly below 30%. because you rarely use your device at those levels, the software thinks your battery only has capacity up to those levels
for android also clear the cache and memory on the 'device health services app' this holds info on your battery. not sure if iPhone has something similar. I'm pretty sure they do. you would have to google it though
this is why gaming laptops have battery calibration tools.
