Hi all. I'm an idiot and have ordered a Note 9 despite not needing it, but I have wanted a nice set of Sennheiser noise cancelling headphones for a long time and the PBtech Note9 offer won me over.

 

Samsung are offering a $809 trade on Note8's when you buy a note 9, so lowball offers will be laughed at. If I don't have a sale for this arranged by the time the note9 ships then I'll just take up Samsungs offer.

 

The only original accessory even unpacked is the clear case (which was used for 3 days before my real case arrived) and the USB-C cable. I didn't bother getting it to photograph, but it IS included. All other accessories are there and unopened.

 

Phone has been in a case since day 1, but no screen protector. There are no scratches on the screen (or anywhere on the phone) and if I use a flashlight at the right angle I can see some light scuffs... I tried and I couldn't photograph them. They are invisible in normal use, abnormal use, and even casual inspection.

 

Included are all the cases pictured - a floppy greyish seethrough case, a cheap leather(like) wallet case which is actually my daily, and a REALLY nice slimline leather folio case. I'll leave the 64GB microSD card in the phone and of course it'll be wiped and factory reset for you.

 

Battery life is still perfect - there's nothing wrong with it. If that damn PBtech deal didn't exist I'd be keeping it.

 

Given it's worth $809 without any accessories, I'm asking $900 if you're able to pickup in Rolleston or I can likely drop off in Chch for free at my convenience (probably a Saturday morning). Less than that and it's worth me keeping the SD card, charger, cables etc as spares.

 

Oh, actually, I'll throw in a nice wood covered wireless charger as well... (I bought 3 for cheap and only use one on my bedside cabinet)

 

I'll ship anywhere, at insured cost - I don't know what this is nowadays... Probably something like $99.95 + first born son?

 

This is available to reserve now, but I'm keeping it until after I get the note9 in my hands which should be around the 24th of August.

 

 

Any questions?

Obviously the Samsung deal is too good so no-one wants this?

 

I have my note 9 now so if someone DOES want this setup for $900 pickup in Rolleston or $910 shipped in NZ, then you have until the courier bag gets to me from Samsung to take it away as a tradein.

 

Cheers - N

Might have missed it. But any warranty? Asking for a friend

Actually can't find the receipt at this stage which is odd for me (but I have shifted houses between buying it and now!)... From my card statement it was bought on 6th December 2017 from Noel Leemings, so under 9 months old. It's a Spark variant...

 

If it was the difference between selling it and not I am confident I could get a copy of the receipt.

Just FYI, all Samsung products come with a 2 year warranty. You don't need the receipt if the product release was inside said 2 years.

 

 

 

Speaking from personal experience on that one.

Thanks for that... Based on that info there's still about 16 months warranty left.

 

I'm expecting the envelope from Samsung in the next couple of days and I will be sending it off as soon as I get it - so get in or miss out.

Last chance... Return envelope arrived from Samsung today. It's being posted tomorrow morning unless someone wants it.
