What does it mean when, for a consumer such as myself, purchasing say a Xiaomi phone without a warranty from Amazon? If it states returnable/refundable?

Why should it be a concern?

  • (This is not legal advice and I am not a lawyer)In the EU you have 2 years warranty. – ask Nov 30 '20 at 17:55
  • In Australia the phone must work for a reasonable time. Fora phone that’s probably 4-5 years. – Dale M Nov 30 '20 at 19:59

It means that once the return period is over (whatever that might be, quite possibly not very long) you will have no legal remedy if the phone stops working or develops a problem. Whether this is an issue of concern is a matter of the buyer's judgement.

In some US state limited basic warranties are imposed by law, and cannot be disclaimed by a notice.
