Best Refurbished & Unlocked Apple iPhone Under £100
If you are on the lookout for a new phone for your elderly parents, consider buying them a refurbished model for under 100 pounds. They might not know how to work all the bells and whistles, but they'll appreciate being able to call someone for help if needed. Additionally, since most refurbished devices come fully unlocked, you won't need to worry about making sure their cell phone plan includes calls or texting internationally. They're also excellent choices for those who don't want to pay full price for a new phone outright. Plus, buying a refurbished model means you benefit from having had some time to use the device beforehand. Below are the popular refurbished phones available for less than £100.
iPhone 7 Plus
Besides the 5.5-inch screen and clever camera, the iPhone 7 Plus has impressive battery life. It is a great upgrade over an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus if you don't mind losing the headphone jack. If you already own a 6S Plus, you won't notice much of a difference. The iPhone 7 Plus is a great phone with many of the same features as the iPhone 7 - performance, stereo speakers, superb cameras - but with some additional features that are particularly useful. In spite of its traditional iPhone design, the 7 Plus does have a waterproof design, as well as a touchscreen with no moving parts. Compared to other iPhones, the iPhone 7 Plus is more durable, especially if you have a case.
The dual rear cameras on this iPhone allow you to get a true optical zoom of 2x and a cool bokeh portrait mode. Water-resistant. Fast. 256GB storage options are available for serious photographers. The battery lasts longer than last year's model. With the iPhone 7 Plus, it is possible to upgrade to iOS 15.5, which is the latest stable version of the iPhone Operating System. There are 27 new security patches in iOS 15.5 that are essential if you want to protect your iPhone and its data. This is a major advantage when you are purchasing this phone in 2022 while being still relevant today.
While it is no longer available directly from Apple, the iPhone 7 Plus can still be purchased at many retailers since it has been heavily discounted since its launch. The refurbished iPhone 7 Plus price starts at £99 for the 32GB variant in a "Very Good" condition.
In the market for a cheap iPhone, the iPhone 7 is probably the best budget option out there. This iPhone has a 4.7-inch Retina IPS LCD display and is powered by an Apple A10 Fusion chipset. It comes with 32/128/256 GB internal storage space and 2GB RAM. The iPhone 7 has the same features as the iPhone 7 Plus but offers 38.05% faster CPU speed as compared to the iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone 7 is also 50g lighter than the iPhone 7 Plus. It runs on the iOS 10.0.1 operating system and can be upgradable to iOS 15.5, which is now considered relatively secure and bug-free. It includes a 7-megapixel front-facing camera and a 12 Megapixel wide-angle camera along with an f/1.8 aperture lens. Similar to the iPhone 7 Plus, we expect an IP67 dust/water resistant feature on the iPhone 7.
Apple's iPhone 7 is still equipped with 3D Touch, and the display looks better than ever. The panel isn't as crazy as some of the 2K and 4K OLED panels that have started appearing on Android phones, but it is a very sharp, bright and beautiful LCD which is pleasing to the eye. Like its bigger brother, the iPhone 7 (particularly in jet black) is quite slim and light, weighing only 138 grams. With the iPhone 7, the battery life was slightly longer, the camera was better, the system was faster, and the phone was water-resistant. Although it may not be one of the top options, its low price makes it an appealing choice.
A 32GB variant refurbished iPhone 7 is available at £89 in "Pristine" condition, the 128GB variant is available for £95, and the 256GB is priced at £99.
iPhone SE 2016
The first generation of the budget-friendly iPhone SE was released in March 2016. It features a 4-inch Retina HD display with 326 PPI pixel density. The device has a single-core 1.84 GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. It is upgradeable to iOS 15.5, which is the current major release of Apple's iOS mobile operating system for iPhones and iPod Touches. The 4-inch screen and smaller overall size of the SE are retro throwbacks. It's the last phone from Apple that is truly small. The phone is incredibly compact and comfortable to hold. But it's not all nostalgia – the iPhone SE offers great performance for its size, thanks to Apple's efficiency and power optimisations. The SE is just as fast as the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. And with the iPhone SE, you get an incredible 12-megapixel camera that produces high-quality images whether you're shooting photos or recording videos with support for 4K resolution.
The iPhone SE is about the same size as the iPhone 5S and fits easily into a pocket. iPhone SE 2016 is the perfect option for older adults who don't want to carry around a bulky smartphone. Also, if you are looking for a phone to give your 12-year-old kid, then this phone is definitely worth considering. Its size and design might appeal to kids. There are only a few refurbished models available now as the handset is getting old and hard to find. However, you can find the 32GB variant at £75 in "Pristine" condition with us.
There is only limited stock left for iPhone SE at The Big Phone Store; grab them before they sell out!
Can I trust to buy a refurbished iPhone from marketplaces?
The fact that you are opting to buy a refurbished phone suggests that you are aware of how vital that device is and how important it is for you to save as much money as possible. That being said, there should never be any worries about making sure that you are purchasing a genuine refurbished phone since it will come with a warranty. However, when buying from marketplaces like Facebook or eBay, you need to be extra careful and ensure that the seller is trustworthy before handing over your hard-earned cash! Most of the time, the seller does not have a reputation to lose if they sell an item that has been broken or faulty. This makes them far less likely to give you anything other than a working product. If there is something wrong with the item you receive, you may not be able to return it back to the seller, which can leave you out of pocket and without a working iPhone.
Also, the sellers in these marketplaces can be unresponsive, especially after they have made a sale. It is highly recommended that you take some time to look through reviews posted by previous customers so that you know exactly what you're getting into ahead of time. Also, once you've decided on the suitable device for yourself, research around to see if that device is available in any retail outlets near you. Although online retailers exist which allow you to purchase a refurbished iPhone directly, shopping locally is often cheaper and gives you access to local support. Once you have narrowed down the search results to only iPhones which interest you to the full extent, it's now just a case of finding the best deal and finalising your purchase.
Which is the best place to buy a refurbished iPhone?
As we explained earlier, the safest bet is to identify sellers with a history of selling quality products and who have already established reputations as reliable from previous customers. There is more chance that they have a proven track record of providing top-notch customer service, too, so you can rest assured when ordering from their store. A reputable retailer will always have clear policies so you will know exactly what to expect at the point of delivery. A used or second phone can be sometimes sold as refurbished by many stores, but this could mean that the seller has not actually had the product checked at all, making it impossible to guarantee its condition. However, when you buy through a legitimate retailer like The Big Phone Store, you can be sure that everything is up to scratch, meaning that the chances of receiving a faulty iPhone are reduced to almost zero. For those who like to buy our phones offline, you can also go to one of our The Big Phone Store outlets in the UK.
Will my refurbished Apple product work like new?
Absolutely! refurbished Apple iPhone products are 100% guaranteed to work flawlessly in every way. Refurbished Apple iPhones have the same branded parts as original devices, and you'll get the exact same experience as buying an original device. Every time you use your refurbished iPhone, it will perform just like a new iPhone. When you purchase from The Big Phone Store, our refurbished devices are guaranteed to work as well as brand new phones. All of our refurbished devices are tested thoroughly before heading out the door, ensuring that they meet up to the same standards as brand new units. We use specialised diagnostic software that specialises in checking each individual unit for problems and then comparing them against known good references. If there are no major issues found during this process, the unit goes through a rigorous testing procedure where it receives the same kind of treatment you'd expect from a new unit. Our technicians run tests for the following: Screen, Camera, Battery Life, Internal Hardware, Physical Damage, Environmental Testing, Warranty Expiration, Device Firmware Updates, and more. This way, you don't have to worry about whether the device will perform as expected because we test it properly before sending it off!
How to buy refurbished products with confidence?
With such substantial discounts, buying refurbished is undoubtedly a great way to save money. With such deals, there is no reason why buyers shouldn't treat themselves right every now and then. But, for many people, certain aspects make it difficult to trust certain websites and marketplace sites. One major concern is whether you are going to get the same product as advertised. Customers worry about the imperfections in the device, which could possibly affect usability and cause issues later down the line. In contrast, a good retailer will provide the exact model of iPhone that you want and deliver it to you in perfect condition.
It is important to note that the refurbished device comes in different cosmetic conditions depending on how much wear and tear it has received. That means that some devices may look fine while others may come with discolouration or scratches on the screen. Those with the most imperfections can be marked down heavily and purchased for a fraction of their original price. Because of the heavy discounts, you should know what you get before you decide to buy one of these devices. All of the items listed above are perfectly safe to use so long as they were bought directly from an authorised dealer. Buying from unauthorised dealers or third-party auction websites could jeopardise your warranty. But, if you have an official Apple reseller on your side - like The Big Phone Store - don't hesitate to ask them for advice and recommendations on the best ways to shop. We're happy to help!
