Wide Selection of Models

Even if you know the exact model that you are look for, it’s always good to compare with other models so a wide selection is what you need. We have a greater selection of models than Handtec in all categories ranging from the latest models to those that were popular back in the day which really is a bonus! It’s a given that most retailers will sell the main contenders such as Apple iPhones, Samsung, Huawei, HTC, Google Pixels, Sony, Nokia, Oneplus and LG but here at The Big Phone Store, we also offer lesser known brands such as Oppo, Xiaomi, Acer, Doro, Virgin, Vodafone and many more which Handtec does not. We sell new and used devices and our used products come in a range of refurbished conditions and we even have helpful descriptions and Grading Videos so that you know exactly what you will be getting!
