The Samsung Note 10 is designed to make the most out of life. This “phablet” – the word for a device that sits somewhere between a smartphone and a tablet in size – packs a lot of punch into its compact body. It features a high dynamic range screen display, sketching and note-taking capabilities, long battery life and laptop-level storage and memory. Released in 2019 to glowing reviews, it has stood the test of time (despite being discontinued) and remains a worthy investment whether your goal is business, leisure or creativity. Yet buying a Samsung Note 10 refurbished is just as satisfying as finding a brand new one.  

The Note 10 is one of a long line of Android-based phablets that Samsung manufactured as part of their Galaxy Note series. The series was discontinued in 2022, superseded by the Ultra, which retains many of the Note’s features and benefits.

At OzMobiles, we want to make the case that not only is the Samsung Note 10 still a worthy phablet to buy, but it’s also even better when you buy it refurbished. Refurbished tablets are more than used tablets, although they have been previously owned. Refurbished devices offer a way to buy second-hand while still receiving the quality you’d expect from a brand-new purchase, including a warranty.

What is the Samsung Note 10?

The Samsung Note 10 is an addition to Samsung Galaxy’s flagship Note 10 range that was eagerly anticipated before its release in 2019. It comes in two sizes: the Note 10 at 6.3’’ and the Note 10+ at 6.8’. While it’s now part of a discontinued line, the Samsung Note 10 is still a very useful device with a number of different features and purposes.

Some of its more fantastic features and benefits include


Triple-camera setup/Night Mode

Take clear, sharp and stunning photos and videos with the Note 10’s three-camera set-up. There’s a 12MP main camera, a 16MP ultra-wide sensor and a 12MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and bokeh effects. Turn on Night Mode to capture the moment in vivid detail regardless of the lighting conditions.

Sensational screen

The Note 10 features an ultra-bright screen with a 6.3-inch 1440p, Dynamic AMOLED, HDR10+ display, which means you can appreciate the finer details of the movies, shows and YouTube videos you stream.

The S Pen

One of the most recognisable features of Samsung’s Galaxy Note tablets is its in-built stylus. This handy pen feature allows you to turn your tablet into a notepad and turn hand-written notes into readable text you can save and share.

A battery that’s quick to charge and long-lasting

The Samsung Note 10’s battery power is so efficient you can charge your device for a matter of minutes and have enough power to last for hours. Super Fast charging and leading-edge battery intelligence mean that even if you’re on the go all day, you never have to go without power.

Laptop-level storage

With an internal storage of 256GB, the Galaxy Note 10 packs the power of a laptop in a much smaller body.

Want to see your photos or videos in clearer detail on the big screen? Just plug your Note 10 into a TV set or monitor using a USB-C cable, and you can create your own entertainment for everyone to enjoy.

That’s not to say that the Samsung Note 10 has no drawbacks. It doesn’t come with a headphone jack or microSD, and not everyone is convinced by the battery life or the handwriting conversion. Still, most reviews of the Samsung Note 10 have focused on what’s great about the device. If you’ve been looking for used tablets to buy, a Samsung Note 10 refurbished comes with something for just about everyone.


Benefits of Buying Refurbished Tablets/Phablets

Wondering why you should buy refurbished tablets instead of seeing what’s on offer at your closest retail store? There are plenty of benefits to choosing refurbished options. Some of the major pluses are

You can save big

This is probably the main benefit that draws customers towards refurbished devices. You can score a Samsung Note 10 refurbished or another kind of refurbished tablet or phablet for potentially hundreds of dollars or up to 40% less than you’d expect to pay for a brand-new version of the same model. And that’s WITHOUT the various specials that arise on websites like OzMobiles from time to time. Buy refurbished, and you can keep more money in your wallet, purse or bank account for life’s other necessities or things that bring joy.

Refurbished tablets are more than just used tablets

Buying a Samsung Note 10 refurbished from OzMobiles is a different experience from buying a regular second-hand device from a private seller and hoping it’s in acceptable condition. All refurbished devices sold through OzMobiles have been put through a strict testing process (including battery life) to ensure they meet high Australian standards. If they’re sold through our website, they’re 100% fully functional, come with a warranty and include a 30-day money-back guarantee. They have also been restored to a condition pretty close to new, with all the previous owner’s photos and other data wiped from the device.

Refurbished tablets come in various conditions, from ‘brand new’ to ‘ex-demo’ (which usually means they’ve been taken out of their boxes but only to be displayed in shops or showrooms) to ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’. Apart from minor scratches, scuffs or dents not easily visible, a refurbished tablet should look much the same as a brand-new one.

Refurbished tablets are better for the environment

In Australia alone, millions of electronic devices like TVs and smartphones are thrown away every year. E-waste (electronic waste) is the fastest-growing form of waste in the country and a significant problem worldwide. Australians generate 140,000+ tonnes of e-waste every year. Every refurbished device purchased is one less device that gets thrown on the scrap heap, and it helps reduce the demand for more to be manufactured. Buying refurbished helps to support a ‘circular economy’ in which resources don’t go to waste.
