Samsung Galaxy S7 (Black)


32GB onboard storage


Includes a 64GB Samsung MicroSD card (UHS)


In a hard transparent case from day one, so unit is pristine. The case itself I deliberately scuffed up a bit on the edges to be more grippy.


Original box including unused headphones.


Phone was purchased from Spark 6 months ago, currently has the Australian firmware on it so that it receives updates in a timely fashion, the only "downside" to this is that the SamsungPay app is installed which isn't supported by any NZ banks (yet?) otherwise it means you get a more secure OS than with the firmware the local TelCos allow. I can reflash the Spark firmware if wanted (or probably even VF\2D).


Fully compatible with all NZ TelCo's.


$850 + $15 courier (or pickup\delivery in\around Wellington)




Can throw in the Gear VR unit if wanted, it's the higher quality SM-R321 "Innovator Edition" which is only supposed to be for the S6, but I've "modified" it (chopped a piece of plastic out for the headphone jack) so that it fits correctly.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Looks like I may have been a bit optimistic - $730 for the S7 and 64GB MicroSD card. Any takers?

It's a fully signed factory firmware so nothing has been tripped, system info still shows the device as "Official", still receives OTA updates.


As far as I know you'd need to unlock the bootloader before you flash an unsigned firmware, and then it'd be goodbye to the Knox feature forever.


Yes, I have the receipt.
