5 Reasons To Buy A Refurbished Phone In 2023

More and more people are using their smartphones for everything from checking the news and weather to online shopping and social media. This trend is only going to continue to grow in the coming years. So what can we do to ease the demand?

Refurbished phones are an environmentally friendly way to deal with this problem since they save resources and reduce waste while still providing users with quality phones. Many materials are saved during the refurbishing process, such as paper, plastic, aluminium and glass. Refurbished phones are good for the environment because they cut down on waste and promote sustainability. 

So here we go, some advice from Student Computers -

  1. A main reasons you should buy a refurbished mobile phone in 2023 is because they are much cheaper than buying a brand new phone. A brand new flagship phone can cost upwards of £1,000, while a refurbished phone can be had for a fraction of that price.
  2. Another reason to buy a refurbished phone is that you can get a much better model than you could afford brand new. Because refurbished phones are typically older models that have been returned or traded in, you can often find high-end phones for a more affordable price.
  3.  A third reason to buy a refurbished phone is that it’s a more sustainable option than buying a brand new one.

When you buy a new phone, you’re contributing to the growing problem of electronic waste. By contrast, buying a refurbished phone means you’re reusing an existing device and keeping it out of the landfill. 
 4. Buying a refurbished phone is a great way to support local businesses. Many refurbishers are small, independent businesses that are passionate about what they do. When you buy from them, you’re supporting their business and helping to keep them afloat - Just like us here at Student Computers.

5. Finally buying a refurbished phone is a great way to try out a new brand or operating system. If you’ve been wanting to try an iPhone but can’t justify the cost of a new one, buying a refurbished iPhone is a great way to get your feet wet. The same goes for trying out a new Android skin or a Windows Phone. We have a wonderful range of refurbished phones to offer here at Student Computers.
