The box has been opened and I used it very few times.
I backed this phone expecting it to run similarly to Librem13, which is not the case.
The phone is back into the box, with battery out of the device, and waiting for some Linux lover to make use of it.
Located in Greece. Available to meet and check it’s in perfect state.
I bought it 0.1247 btc. I sell it for sale 763€ only.
(579€ to buy a fairphone and 184€ was the income tax).
PS: I’m editing this post as i receive questions below.
The seller is earning some profit: $599->€516.47 + €123.95 (24% import duty in Greece) + any extra fees charged by the delivery company
However, it is still a good price, when considering that the seller had to wait 4 years to obtain the phone. Plus, the price of the L5 just rose to $1199 and there is now a 12 month lead time for new orders (according to the web store).
You should state explicitly which modem it has. We can make assumptions but …
Ultimately the market decides whether it is correctly priced.
Some complications though: Presumably if someone in Greece bought a new phone today (i.e. joined the queue) then import duty would be charged i.e. import duty is in common between the two scenarios - new or used. Worse still, the import duty for a new phone would presumably be calculated on a much higher “new” price.
On the other hand: SIM & SD Card Tray Issue! You never quite know what you are getting when you buy a used phone, and the warranty support is murkier.
@patata, your offer is very kind and I’m almost sure that this thread is about getting brand new Librem 5 from someone that want sell it to someone that like to start to use it, as is, brand new, have no doubt. If not someone from Greece someone from EU will buy it sooner than we might expect. It is very good offer, and hope that you’ll not have any problems to sell it:
Please charge your Librem 5 battery to around 50% and tape (isolate) + and − contacts from device itself. This will help a lot not to deplete current Librem 5 battery more than necessary, preserve its health in good (best possible) condition. As kindly recommended:
Unbelievable. Who will pay this amount for L5. I wouldn’t. People wait for L5 to become cheaper so they can buy (what is Social Purpose if only the rich can have it) and it just doubled its price from the crowdfunding amount.
I hope Purism knows what they are doing. Adding import tax and customs handling I strongly doubt that anyone from EU will buy it again. After that @patata amount is a bargain and he must raise his price.
I actually received 2 messages to buy it, and i sold it to the first buyer.
Apparently I could have put an even higher initial price, if it was my purpose to make profit.
Thanks everyone for your comments.
