Samsung Galaxy S3 for £180?

A workmate is selling a used Samsung Galaxy S3 for £180. Good price? I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace at the moment, so it'd be quite a decent upgrade!

It's £240 brand new. Unless it's a mint condition or comes with goodies (SD card, good quality case) I would go for something else.

A phonebook, 2 cans and string would be a decent upgrade to an Ace :p
Seriously, it is a good offer, BUT: how old is the phone? Will you need a new battery soon? Is the warranty still ON? Is the phone in 'as new' condition?
There are countless other devices for that money that are great upgrades coming from an Ace.
Even new ones => They have warranty etc etc...

On the other hand: the SGS3 is a good handset; easy to unlock and root, with good software support; most bugs have been ironed out etc etc...

Maybe you check places like amazon and expansys to see what's available new for £200 or thereabouts? That done, you could do worse than going for that SGS3. I wouldn't, but I'm not an Android fan.
