So, you want your next refurbished phone to be the Samsung Galaxy S23? Despite the amazing upgrades provided by the S23+ and the S23 Ultra, the base model of the Samsung Galaxy S23 5G is still the most dependable device. As a core flagship model, you can rest assured that you'll receive key software updates long into the life of your phone. Not only that, the boring old S23 5G is a more hand-friendly and pocket-friendly size for those of you who might not want a gigantic, miniature-tablet sized phone stretching out your pockets.
But all of this leaves one important question. Why should you buy your new Samsung S23 refurbished? And why should you buy your new refurbished phone from The Big Phone Store? Well, keep reading, friends - and you'll soon find out!
Device Specification: Samsung Galaxy S23 5G
Operating System and Chipset - With Samsung's One UI 5.1, the Galaxy S23 paves the way for innovative functionality and improved user experience. Driving the Galaxy S23 is Qualcomm's breakthrough SM8550-AC Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, an 8-core powerhouse offering top-tier speed and efficiency. Paired with AI-optimization and 5G readiness, this device is truly a technological marvel.
Camera System - Imagine having a camera studio in your pocket - the Galaxy S23 makes it a reality. It features a triple camera setup on the back, consisting of a 50 MP wide lens, a 10 MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, and a 12 MP ultrawide lens. The integrated AI enhances every shot, delivering exceptional detail and colour. Moreover, it boasts diverse recording options, going up to 8K resolution at 24/30 fps, 4K at 30/60 fps, and 1080p at an impressive 960 fps.
Battery and Charging - A 3,900mAh battery isn't the biggest for a modern-day smartphone, but it still ensures a full day of battery life even with rigorous use. Plus, with 25W wired charging, your battery can leap from 0 to 50% in just half an hour. What's more, 4.5W reverse wireless charging means your Galaxy S23 can double up as a power bank, helping your other gadgets stay powered up.
Why should I buy a refurbished Samsung Galaxy S23 5G?
Whether you care about saving money, or saving the planet, buying your next phone refurbished is a great alternative to buying new! With the worldwide popularity of smartphones, E-waste is a rising issue, with over 5 Billion devices simply thrown away in 2022. The Big Phone Store is dedicated to fighting the tide of electronic waste, and that means selling as many refurbished Samsung devices as possible!
Buying refurbished is the best way to get the very best phone possible, at a fraction of the original price! Every phone we sell has been restored to a fully-functional condition, and covered by our 12-month warranty. If you’re not 100% satisfied with your purchase, send it back within 14 days and you’ll receive a full refund, no questions asked!
How much does a refurbished Galaxy S23 5G cost?
The cost of your refurbished Galaxy S23 5G will vary greatly depending on the condition that it comes in. Phones that are in perfect condition will sell for a lot more money than phones that have noticeable wear and tear - but on the other hand, phones that have those cosmetic imperfections are a great way to get a crazy-cheap deal on a high-spec device!
At The Big Phone Store, we describe our refurbished devices using these 5 conditions:
Like New: When we say a phone is in a “Like New” condition, we mean it! These devices have usually never been used - the only noticeable difference between a “Like New” phone and a brand-new one is that it doesn’t come sealed in its original packaging! We even include a charging cable with every one of these devices at no extra cost.
Pristine: The best condition a used phone can get! If there are any marks or imperfections on these devices, you won’t see them unless you hold the device right up close to your face.
Very Good: If a device has some small visible marks, we’ll describe it as “Very Good”. If you don’t mind a phone with some light signs of use, then this is the choice for you!
Good: Scratches, dents, maybe small cracks in the casing - “Good” condition phones are not the prettiest of the bunch, but they pass every functionality test we can throw at them. If you’re just looking for a phone that you can trust to work perfectly, and don’t care how it looks, then a Good phone could be your best friend.
These are purely cosmetic conditions, and do not reflect the working condition of the phone. All of these phones are PhoneCheck-certified as Fully Working, which means they’ve passed our standard of over 80 tests to ensure they are in the same working condition as a brand new device. And we stand by that promise - every one of these devices comes with a 12-month warranty, so you can rest assured that your refurbished Samsung phone is in perfect working order.
Fair: Are you interested in getting a great phone at the absolute cheapest price possible? Do you want to make the most environmentally conscious choice? At The Big Phone Store, we’re committed to saving as many devices from landfill as possible. That means that we’re not going to give up on a phone just because it has a slightly reduced battery capacity, or perhaps some minor screen burn. The upshot is that our “Fair” condition phones are the cheapest way to buy a working device. We’ll even cover these devices with a 3-month warranty, although if you take good care of it, these phones should last a good deal longer! These phones sell out the fastest, so keep an eye out for them!
Why is The Big Phone Store the best place to buy a used Samsung Galaxy S23 5G?
Let’s put it this way - there are two main ways to buy a pre-owned device. You could buy a used phone from a private seller, which might save you a little money - but that’s where the benefits end. Buying second hand phones directly leaves you, the buyer, with very little reassurance if your sale goes wrong. Purchasing a refurbished Samsung device is the only way to make sure you have a fully-working second-hand phone, with a 12-month warranty and 14-day money back guarantee included! On top of that - we make sure every device is professionally sanitised before we ship it out. Did you know that the average phone is home to more germs than a toilet seat? Think about that next time you’re eyeing up a used phone on facebook marketplace!
Now that we have your attention, here’s why The Big Phone Store is the number one place to buy your next refurbished phone!
