I live a frugal life. As much as I like the S7, S6 is a great phone for me and will give me all that I need. I was thinking about buying a refurbished one off of ebay since they are so cheap. What are the chances that screen or other parts may have been replaced with non Samsung genuine parts?

It depends on the seller.

I recently purchased a "seller refurbished" S6 AT&T variant on eBay and, while it looked okay and powered on okay, I ended up returning it for an original but used international variant. I'd echo the suggestion of checking their reputation as well. If authentic hardware and cost are your concerns, I would consider getting a gently used, non-refurb model that offers a return policy.... just in case!
