Have you just become the owner of an used Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge? You are aware of the fact that buying such a smartphone comes with a few major risks, but if it’s in good condition, then it can really save you some money.
Smartphone makers are simply unrestless and release new devices every year, but you cannot always afford them. Since people always have the wish to upgrade, you can get an amazing price on a used smartphone such as Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge which has been around only for a few months, so this might be your chance.
If you’re getting a fair deal, enjoy it and start discovering as much as possible about it. For example, one of the first things that you are probably interested about is to find the software version from your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. Keep in mind that unlocked and rooted devices are not supported when it comes to receiving OTA updates, not to mention that since this is a phone which has been already used, the warranty can also be an issue.
