    So I just bought a refurbished samsung Galaxy s5 from amazon last week and today I woke up to a black screen of death

    After some troubleshooting and time I got the screen to turn back on but now I'm anxious it will happen again

    It is under warranty but my dilemma is that I don't know if it would be better to replace it with a different refurbished phone that could potentially have worse defects or take my chances with this once knowing it has the black screen of death issue which could be resolved from my troubleshooting for all I know.

    What are your thoughts?
    Should I gamble and say this one is fixed or replace it?

    Hi, I would replace it until you get one fit for purpose, there's nothing worse than wondering if your phone will work the next time you come to use it. Phil
