Is a Refurbished iPhone worth it?
Apple iPhones are absolutely some of the most sought-after mobile phones across the world, but buying a brand new one can come at a hefty cost. Here at The Big Phone Store, we offer our customers the perfect solution: our very own refurbished iPhones are an incredible way to save money while getting your hands on the very best technology available!
Will it help the environment?
You're not just going to save money; you're saving the planet! By buying a used iPhone, you're contributing to the Circular Economy by rehoming a phone that otherwise would have ended up in a tip! Every year, 5 billion devices are discarded globally, with most of that headed directly to landfills as electronic waste. The good news is that the refurbished market is growing,
By choosing to buy a refurbished phone over brand new, you are actively reducing the amount of eWaste that is produced by the manufacturing process. Almost 80% of the carbon footprint left by each phone is produced during the manufacturing process.
Which refurbished iPhone should I buy?
To get the most value for money, you should choose the iPhone model that best suits your budget and your needs. Here are a few recommendations:
Low Budget: a refurbished iPhone 11 in “Good” condition. This phone was first released in 2019, which knocks a lot of money off the price tag. If all you need is a dependable Apple device at a low cost, this might be the smart choice.
Medium Budget: a refurbished iPhone 13 Pro in “Very Good” condition. Usually “Pro” devices are best left to those who can flash some serious cash, but that’s the beauty of buying older iPhones, refurbished.
Large Budget: a refurbished iPhone 14 Pro Max in “Pristine” condition. If what you care most about is getting the best tech possible, fully under-warranty, and at the lowest price, The Big Phone Store has you covered.
New for 2023, we even stock the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. This is the absolute cheapest way to get your hands on a trustworthy UK model of these incredible Apple phones, at a huge discount.
What does "refurbished phone" even mean?
A refurbished phone is one that has been previously used. It has then been sent to us, for it to be refurbished. The device is then fully tested using state-of-the-art software (explained further below) to ensure that it is functioning at 100%, before selling it to wonderful customers like yourselves!
The majority of waste that is produced by mobile phone production, is in the initial manufacturing process. We cut out that entire process while providing the exact same amount of quality. All of this means that a refurbished iPhone is a cheaper, greener, and fully-working alternative to buying a brand new iPhone.
What's the difference between second-hand and refurbished Apple iPhones?
There are two ways to buy second-hand iPhones: refurbished, or directly from the previous owner. When buying from other marketplaces or retailers, any "used" phone that isn't advertised as refurbished or reconditioned will not come with assurances that it's in fully working condition. Rest assured - when you buy refurbished from us, you're buying a fully tested phone that works perfectly.
What is an Apple Refurbished iPhone?
Apple Certified Refurbished iPhones are new iPhones that have been made from recycled internal parts. These iPhones all contain brand new casings, shells, and batteries - making them closer to a new recycled product than a truly refurbished one. As such, Apple Certified Refurbished iPhones cost more than ones bought from a professional refurbisher like The Big Phone Store.
Why Should I Buy a Reconditioned iPhone in 2023?
Purchasing an Apple iPhone refurbished in 2023 is a perfect idea. If you're looking to upgrade from your old phone for the best price possible, or simply replace a damaged device, then buying a refurbished Apple phone is the way to go for both your wallet and the planet!
Will it last?
Whenever we sell refurbished devices, we always ensure that they are fully tested, repaired, and cleaned before being sent out! We hope all of our customers looking for cheap iPhones can have peace of mind shopping with us knowing we test our smartphones thoroughly using authorised and regulated services. Except for the very cheapest grade we sell, all iPhone models that we sell as refurbished come with a minimum battery health of 85%.
And that's not all, We offer a 12-month warranty on all phones that we sell. This means that if your device develops any manufacturer faults while you have it, you're able to return it so that it can be repaired. We also offer a 14-day, no-quibble refund period with each order, which allows you to return any order within 14 days of receipt.
How do You Test Your Refurbished iPhones?
All smartphones are tested using automated software that performs a 90+ point “PhoneCheck” certification - an automated process that individually tests each and every feature a refurbished iPhone may have. This also includes testing functions that are not immediately visible to the user. Before any phone is sold, it must pass all of these tests, so you can rest easy knowing that you're guaranteed to receive a phone that's free of any issues!
