T-Mobile offers the refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note II 16GB 4G Android Smartphone for T-Mobile for $312 with free shipping. That's tied with our mention from last week as $264 below the cost of a new unit and the lowest total price we could find, although we saw a refurb with another carrier for $62 less three weeks ago. This phone features a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 5.5" 1280x720 touchscreen AMOLED LCD, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, MP3 and ACC playback, 4G LTE connectivity, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, 16GB internal memory, microSD card slot, and Android 4.1 OS (Jelly Bean).
A 90-day warranty applies, but it's unclear who backs it.
