Default Worth buying cheap used htc one?

I got won an auction for htc one $150 but it is untested. Like I plan on using it abroad on gsm so I dont care if it is blacklisted it isnt by the way according to swappa.
My only problem is even though the seller has stated the touch screen works fine and okayish in terms of wear and tear.
It is a completely untested phone otherwise.
My only concern is if I buy this at this price and how much will it cost to repair essentials which might not work
microphone, speakers, and wifi
thats pretty much it
the seller is a high volume trader with around 4000 feedbacks so I doubt he is lying about not checking the device himself.
the fact that these things dont work is an if
what do you guys think is it worth the risk? for $150 htc one sprint silver

could you please clarify why? I did my research apparently sprint has gsm radios for international travel

this thread also allows you to unlock the sim for free
If your concern is the possiblilty of lack of 3g dont worry I live in a country where 3g wont come for another year

Well,apparently that may work, limitation being, if you wanna not use sense, the sim lock or unlock, is irrelevant.
