The most attractive thing about buying second hand phones is the money you can save on what would otherwise be very expensive technology. As mobile phones become more and more sophisticated, the cost of a new one has grown and grown, which can exclude people on lower incomes or with bigger expenses elsewhere from the market. Refurbished phones redress this imbalance and allow access to cutting edge tech for people who might not be able to afford it otherwise.
Refurbished mobile phones aren't simply a resale of second hand phones that nobody wants anymore. Every year huge quantities of phones are acquired by reviewers, researchers and enthusiasts who simply want to get a full understanding of a phone's capability. They will then look for ways to sell them on before they move on to the next emerging technology. These are the phones that we often have coming our way, which are then thoroughly checked for usability and condition. In reality, many of these phones have been not much more handled than completely new ones! Read More
Whilst one of the main factors in your decision to buy a refurbished mobile phone will likely be the costs involved, there are some other benefits to buying a refurbished phone as well:
More and more people are turning to refurbished mobile phones or pre-owned phones because they care about their carbon footprint. The producers of mobile phones are getting better at using sustainable production methods, but it is still not as effective it is to buy preowned smartphones. When you opt for refurbished phones in Australia, you are removing one step of the process and reducing the amount of waste overall. Ultimately, you are preventing one perfectly functional used mobile phone from ending up going to a landfill.
With a refurbished smartphones, you will not need to tie into a particular network provider. Sometimes the contracts that you have to take out in order to get hold of a new phone can last for up to 2 years. In that time, with a pay-as-you-go contract, for instance, you could be saving a great deal of money not just on the cost of the phone but on the contract as well.
While we're sure that many private resellers are legitimate and simply want to get a little cash for their old phone, there are those who will be looking to offload junk stock that will simply fall apart and stop working as soon as you start using it. Very often, these go for very low prices, which can be quite tempting. But, as with many things, if it looks too good to be true, then it likely is. With a refurbished phone, however, you will be safe in the knowledge that a professional has taken a look at it and restored it to almost factory condition. In the long run, this will save you money on repairs and from the frustration of having a constantly faulty phone.
Something that is often taken for granted is the fact that buying pre owned smartphones lose a huge amount of their value simply by being taken out of their box. For those who stock new phones, that means display models, those used by reviewers and developers, along with factory refurbished mobile phones that have been returned for any reason, suddenly lose a huge amount of value. Much of the time, these are the phones that end up being refurbished. That means that you are essentially getting a completely new phone for a fraction of the cost!
