Today only, you can pick up a refurbished 16GB version of the device for just $99.99 (opens in new tab) in your choice of black or white from Woot!. Originally released in 2014, the Galaxy S5 has a 5.1-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 12MP camera and has a removable battery so you can easily swap in a new one (opens in new tab) if you need additional power during the day.
Being a GSM unlocked unit in refurbished condition, meaning there may be some scratches and dings.

A refurbished Galaxy S5 for $100? Seems too expensive for a flagship phone that's over 3 years old.
I don't think the price is bad, it's got better hardware then anything new in that price range. My concern is it's 3 years old, I think lollipop was the last software update for those, and they no longer get security updates.
None of the third party ROM's use the SPen stuff?
It's a decent price and its last update is Marshmallow. Download Samsung's Good Lock UI and you've got yourself a nice little Galaxy phone that's capable of VR (loved the crap out of my S5 before moving on to the Note).
" Refurbished " is a vague term. Just depends on the actual physical condition. My Verizon S5 has Marshmallow. The 16GB internal storage is what really dates this phone. Amazing how far flagship phones have come, internal-spec wise,
Is a 16GB S5 even worth $100?
Maybe if it was brand new and came with a 32GB SD card then yeah. But one that's used already? I'll pass.
How can you recommend a phone like this unless it is still getting security patches?(Good for Samsung and the carriers if they are) I would assume these phones are super targets for older hacks that have been patched out.
It has a 16 mp. camera, not 12
I think that's a great deal
