Refurbished phones: why are they such a great choice?

Would you like to treat yourself to a new high-end phone, but are put off by the steep price tag? Buying a used one can be a great alternative! If you want to minimise the risk of problems and hidden defects, refurbished smartphones are particularly worth considering.

Refurbished phones have been used for several months or years by another owner. The latter then decided to sell them. However, they were not immediately put up for resale in their original condition, as bazaars do. They were first inspected in detail by an experienced technician. If any components were faulty, they were replaced. In practice, these are devices that are 100% functional, but they may have minor visual signs of wear and tear.

Wear categories of refurbished phones

If you're considering buying a refurbished phone, the wear grade is an important consideration. In our FixBazar you will find the following 3 categories.

  • A+ is visually in 91-100% condition.
  • A is visually in 81-90% condition.
  • B is visually in 75-80% condition.

Thus, the differences between the classes are only in appearance. For example, in the number of small scratches or abrasions that arise from normal use. However, it is important to note that these flaws do not affect functionality in any way. For all categories of wear and tear, you can be assured that the device is 100% functional and the battery is at least at 85% of its original capacity.

Did you know: You get a 12-month warranty on refurbished phones of all categories?

Why you should get a refurbished phone?

Refurbished phones have a number of benefits that you will undoubtedly appreciate.

Eco-friendly choice

New phones are made using materials whose extraction places a significant burden on the environment. CO2 emissions are produced and large amounts of energy are consumed. Not to mention the fact that the devices have to be distributed all over the world, which again puts harmful fumes into the air.
When you buy a refurbished phone, this whole environmental burden is removed.

Waste reduction

When you buy a refurbished phone, you give it a new life. Otherwise, it would probably end up forgotten in a drawer somewhere, and after a few years, the owner would throw it in the garbage. Recycling smartphones is difficult and requires a lot of energy. Not to mention that many of the components are toxic and can significantly pollute the environment when improperly disposed of.

Excellent price/quality ratio

Refurbished phones from FixBazar are on average 30% cheaper than new ones. For high-end devices, you can save several hundred euros.

Handy tip: Some manufacturers, such as Apple, also offer their own officially refurbished phones. These have been inspected and repaired by an Apple-certified technician. However, if you choose such a device, you should expect a higher price. Apple Renewd phones are on average just 8% cheaper than brand new ones, so you won't save that much.

Reliability Guarantee

Each used phone is thoroughly checked by an experienced technician before being included in the FixBazaar. The technician will clean it, check the functionality of all hardware components, as well as software. If he finds that any parts are not working 100% correctly, they will be replaced with new ones. Either original or in high FixPremium quality.
If the device has a damaged display, it is replaced with a new one in FixPremium quality. This is even better than the original in some ways. For example, it has higher brightness. The refurbished phone is sold with a charging cable. The benefit is that if you buy a used iPhone from FixBasar, you automatically get 50% off a new battery. So, if by any chance its capacity doesn't suit you, you can exchange it for a new one at a bargain price. 
So don't hesitate, choose from the range of refurbished equipment at FixBazar and save not only your wallet, but also the environment!
