Hopefully you are now seeing the benefit of Amazon and company stores within Amazon.

The Above phone is relatively recent has a fairly good specification (4GB RAM and 64GB SSD) and is much cheaper than so called flagship models like the Samsung Galaxy S21+

If it does everything that you want of a phone, you save a great deal of money if your existing network is T Mobile or Sprint.

But the seller isn't Amazon.

Would you buy a phone from one of those sellers (trusting them that the devices are brand new as listed)?

I think you are missing the point, it is the Samsung store within Amazon, it is stocked by Samsung, promoted, sold through Amazon, despatch by Amazon and payment handled by Amazon.

The Image I posted in Reply #11, was the order details (from my purchase history) of one of the phones I purchased February 2021.

But was it a third party seller that you purchased the Samsung A51 from?

You really don't get it or trying to wind me up.

If I went directly to the Samsung Store within avast I added it to the basket and guess who would handle the payment and delivery.  YES AMAZON.

There is a later model available in the Samsung Store, which is a little cheaper than the A51 I bought just over a year ago..

Why "so called", do you not like the S21?

I really don't know why you are getting all upset, I'm just trying to understand you.

Ebay also handles the payment.
