Android Central Forums member remii picked up his shiny new Samsung Galaxy S II Sprint Epic 4G Touch (hereafter referred to as the SGSIIE4GT for short) at a Best Buy in Riverside, Calif., only to find that it wasn't quite as pristine as you might expect, with the box apparently already opened and the phone's camera having been ... tested. Here's the story in remii's words:
We're willing to bet that's not official Best Buy policy (or anyone else's, for that matter). And while we'd agree that the photos left on the phone aren't all that offensive, but that's not really the point. If we're buying a brand-new phone, we'd prefer that store reps not "play" with it first, ya know? There's probably no need to keep things as sterile as to clearly open the box in plain sight of God and the customer, but just don't "play" with what we're about to buy, m'kay?
As for remii and his almost-new SGSIIE4GT? Hit the break to see how things turned out.
Good on Best Buy for making this right and throwing in a little extra for remii's trouble. How big a stink would you have raised? Let's hear it in the comments, folks.
