Hey Community, 


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

  • Samsung Galaxy S10
  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • LG G8X ThinQ Single Screen

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!

Thanks for another announcement thread that welcomes the entire community to voice their opinion and feel they have made a contribution to the community that is not a narrowly focused help only post. I am looking forward to reviewing the options you have presented.

It would be nice to be able to read why folx picked the option that they did.


I'll go first: I picked the LG G8X ThinQ because it offers the best value i.e. combination of technical specs and price. On the downside though, this device is not upgradeable to Android 11, much less to Android 12.

It's good there is no iPhone in this round.  The Apple lovers will really skew the result one way, we seen it from last time LoL


Im not understanding the point of this exercise? Pm already offers the S9 and the S10 so the only new phone to be offered is the LG? So is the question not should we offer the LG phone despite the fact LG is no longer manufacturing phones and updates will no longer be available?

#WSS ^^ 🙂 LG is exiting the mobile phone business. Why sell them?




Edit: I doubt WSS is a thing and these days T is politically correct but there you go.

If I had to pick one, it would be the Galaxy S10.  However, I don't see $400 for a model that is pushing 3 years old to be great.  I would also suggest that members stay away from the LG G8 ThinQ because of the LG software experience.  I do supect that once gain, all three models will soon be available.

I agree 100% .. LoL


Yes, $400 for S10.🤔..  only good news is that S10 still getting Monthly Security Update this year.. but will shift to quarterly soon



Maybe there needs to be a 4th option


 4) None of the above.



Seems to me 2 out of 3 are already available...
