What Are Refurbished Phones & Their Benefits?

OzMobiles believe in the benefits of buying refurbished phones and have written about the topic before. We believe refurbished phones are better for your pocket, the planet and YOU. More on that in just a moment. First, what are refurbished phones?

A refurbished phone isn’t just a second-hand device that you generally take your chances with in terms of quality. Professional refurbished phone sellers put their pre-loved devices through multiple screenings to ensure they’re fully functional. 

When you buy a refurbished phone from a legitimate vendor, you can be sure that everything from the camera to the microphone to the battery still works. You don’t have to worry that the phone is stolen or still has data from a previous owner, as both are checked during the refurbishing process. 

A company like OzMobiles’ restores the phone to factory settings and gets to work removing scratches, fixing any faults and repairing anything that might stop the phone from functioning as close to a store-bought model as possible.

Good for your pocket

One of the biggest benefits of a refurbished phone is undeniably the price. You can find refurbished iPhones for sale in models new and old for far cheaper than you’d find new at a retail outlet, even when you’re specifically looking out for discounts. 

Of course, while the price is always an important factor, nobody wants to compromise on quality. And you won’t have to with a model such as iPhone 13 refurbished in Australia by OzMobiles. 

Shoppers who want the latest iPhone the second it hits the stores will trade in their older models, but that doesn’t mean the models themselves are old. You can find a heavily discounted deal on a very recent model of iPhone by checking out our website.

Good for the planet

It may go without saying that constantly throwing away old phones and manufacturing new ones doesn’t have the greatest effect on the environment. But the problem is larger than many of us know. 10% of the entire world’s e-waste (electronic waste) comes from smartphones.  

Countless phones are thrown away each year, clogging up the world’s landfills and leading to toxic chemicals leaking into the air and water. Smartphone manufacturing also generates its share of greenhouse gases and environmental pollution and requires the digging up finite and irreplaceable materials from the earth.

Refurbished phones are a cleaner, greener, more sustainable option that takes recycling to the next level. The smartphone may be second-hand, but the quality is first-rate.

Good for YOU

When you buy from OzMobiles, your device comes with a 12-month warranty that includes the battery, free and fast shipping and free 30-day returns if anything goes wrong. 

Buying an iPhone 13 refurbished in Australia or one of our other refurbished iPhones for sale is a safer option than taking your chances on a random online marketplace.
