I bought both and the second was a refurbished. I could not tell a difference and paid $680 for the same phone that cost $1100. Definitely get the refurbished. Get a warranty still and heck you save big bucks. Unless you got it on Black Friday for $850 with my amazon CC I got another 20% off. Nice. I own both the IPHONE and Samsung and use both. Switch SIM cards when needed. Wish I could have to Sims with same number lol.
Reason I got the Samsung was the DEX and using my TV as the screen. And the android apps I have certain apps that work on Samsung vs IPhone. Watching movies and NFL games on phone then stream to my tv. Still figuring that out
