What are refurbished iPhones?

A refurbished iPhone (sometimes referred to as a used iPhone or second hand iPhone) is an iPhone that has been used before being returned, sold or traded in to a retailer. A refurbished iPhone is not new but that has been tested, repaired and cleaned, and then graded accordingly. They can come in a variety of grades, including: Pristine, Very Good, Good and Fair. Whilst many people may think that a refurbished iPhone may have poor quality or be covered in scratches - We can assure you that they in-fact, do not! Many of the second hand iPhone's we have available are Pristine, meaning that there isn't even a scratch on them!

Why Should I Buy A Refurbished iPhone? 

There are many reasons you may decide to buy a second hand iPhone. One of the most common reasons is in order to save money when buying a new phone. Apple iPhone's are deservedly one of the most sought after phones - this means that they can come with a hefty price tag! Here at The Big Phone Store, we offer our customers an alternative solution with our used iPhones that are available for a fraction of the price. Whether it be the old but gold iPhone 6 or Apple's latest release, the iPhone 12 - we have the perfect solution for you!

Another reason you may want to buy a reconditioned iPhone is to help the environment! Now, you may be thinking "How does buying a refurbished iPhone help save the environment?". The answer, quite simply, is that by buying a used iPhone, you're rehoming a phone that otherwise would've ended up in a tip! By the end of 2020, 55.5 Mt (million tons) of electronic waste was discarded across the globe, almost none of which will have a positive or neutral impact on the environment. Put simply, by buying refurbished/reconditioned, you're purchasing in a way that directly impacts the environment.

What’s the difference between a refurbished iPhone, used iPhone or a second hand iPhone?

At The Big Phone Store, there’s absolutely no difference. We refer to all of our phones as either refurbished, reconditioned, used or second hand. When buying from other marketplaces or retailers, anything that isn’t refurbished or reconditioned may mean that it hasn’t been restored before being sold again.

Whenever we receive a used iPhone, we always ensure that it is thoroughly tested, repaired and cleaned before being sent out! We hope all of our customers looking for either a refurbished iPhone, second hand iPhone or reconditioned iPhone can have peace of mind shopping with us knowing we test our phones thoroughly however, under any circumstance that it doesn’t work, we offer a 12 month warranty with all phones that aren’t graded as “Fair” meaning that if for whatever reason your second hand iPhone develops a fault, you’ll be able to return it.

I'm not sure which refurbished iPhone I should buy - how do I decide?

All of Apple’s iPhones are outstanding - they aren’t the leading brand on the market for nothing. However, we have a vast range of iPhones, and there is definitely the right fit for you.

 If you like photography and want your Instagram feed to stand out against the rest, then all of the iPhones have a great camera, but the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max have outstanding triple camera technology that is a step above the rest. With large displays, telephoto and wide lens technology, portrait mode, night mode and more, if you want to feel like a photographer wherever you go then used iPhone's 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are ideal. 

 If you are working from home or on the go and you need to assess documents in high quality, the iPhone XS Max is perfect, with a large screen and high quality cameras, you can read emails and make zoom calls in pristine quality. With the A12 bionic chip the phone has very high performance, so you can spend more time ticking things off your to-do list and less time waiting for your phone to catch up with you. The iPhone XS is also brilliant for working away from the office, and with iOS technology you can easily multitask and change between apps easily, so you can balance emails, calendars, work calls, notes and more at the easy swipe of a button. 

If watching and streaming is your thing then the iPhone XR or XS is spot on. It has a long lasting battery, colourful and brilliant display, as well as a stereo sound system that will immerse you in your viewing. 

If you like gaming and you need a phone that lasts all day, we'd recommend Apple latest edition, the iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro Max. This phone has the latest technology when it comes to processing power and battery capacity making it the perfect choice for you.

If you are looking for a first time phone for a child or teenager that you don’t want to break the bank, or if you want a family phone for convenience then Apple phones such as the iPhone 6, iPhone 7 or even earlier models such as the iPhone 5 are ideal. They are outstanding all around phones that won’t make a dent in your bank account. 

For a family phone you may consider the iPhone SE which covers all bases. From surfing the web, taking photos, shopping, playing games and more, the iPhone SE is fantastic - and its also one of Apple's more cheaper models.
