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!

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.

Very much the Samsung S10! Definitely an awesome phone, great storage and quick run time! The only downfall is the battery, after using it for a while, battery drains out more quickly and needs recharging more often. But hey, which phone doesn't?

@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.

@Irenetao 

all you need to do is recalibrate your battery. I do this everytime there is a big software update (1gb plus). or at least once every 4 months or so. 

 

the only way this fix will not work is if one constantly drains their battery till the device shuts off.

I hear the LG has the best sound for listening to music with headphones. So that's my vote.

I pick Samsung s10 which is tested and working with audio streaming hearing aids using the new Android ASHA protocol.  Although the Samsung s9 also supports the ASHA protocol, but it is an older phone.

@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)

@Pawprints1986 

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.

  • charge to 100 then drain to 0
  • keep phone turned off then charge till the phone says 100
  • unplug the charger and turn on the phone. if it's not at 100 when you turn the phone on then plug it back in until it's at 100. then unplug and drain to 0
  • repeat steps 2-3 1 more time

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.
