Buying a refurbished phone is a great way to get one of the latest handsets at a considerably lower price. Refurbished phones are mobile devices that have been returned from the original retailer and have undergone refurbishment, testing and certification. Whilst many people opt to buy a new mobile handset, there are actually numerous benefits of buying a refurbished device.

From lower prices to being more sustainable, getting a refurbished phone is an excellent choice in so many different ways. In this post, the Student Computers team looks at why you should make your next handset a refurbished phone. Read on to find out why, and if you’d like to browse our range of reconditioned mobiles - visit our website today.

Much Cheaper

Purchasing a refurbished phone can save you lots of money compared to if you go out and buy a brand-new device. Refurbished devices are cheaper, pure and simple. You’ll find the price of the handset often hundreds of pounds lower than the original price. Therefore, if you’re looking to save money and reduce your costs when getting a new phone, refurbished is absolutely the way to go.

Rigorous Testing, Certification and Refurbishment

When you choose a refurbished mobile phone, you will be making a safer purchase than if you decide to buy a second-hand device from a public marketplace. All of our mobiles have undergone comprehensive and thorough refurbishment, as well as professional testing and certification. 

As a result, you can have total peace of mind that you’re buying a device that’s in good condition and working order, and will reliably perform for you. Buying a second-hand phone is taking a huge risk, and you could end up with a broken or dead device that just stops working. Don’t take this risk and buy a refurbished iPhone instead. 

Better for the Environment

Millions of new mobiles end up in landfill every single year, creating huge amounts of electrical waste and damaging the environment. However, when you choose a refurbished phone, there will be a lower impact on the planet. Fun fact - it takes 214 gallons, that’s 972 litres to make a mobile phone, so by buying refurbished you are saving the planet.

Refurbished phones are an eco-friendly alternative, as they’ve been fixed and restored, and can be used again - as opposed to ending up in the dump. If you want to limit your environmental impact, then going green and getting a reconditioned device is the right decision. 

You’ll Receive a Warranty Period

If you come to Student Computers and get a refurbished Apple iPhone, Android device, or any other smartphone such as a Samsung Galaxy, you will get a 12 month warranty on your item as standard. The warranty starts from the purchase date; it is always recommended to check your warranty period when purchasing.
