The Benefits of Buying a Refurbished iPhone in Sydney - OzMobiles

Phone shopping in Sydney is an activity packed with opportunities and possibilities. From massive malls to glamorous arcades to iconic shopping streets, there are endless places to find a bargain. Sydney’s most famous shopping locations include the busy pedestrian strip Pitt Street Mall, the Westfield on the corner of Pitt and Market Streets and the Queen Victoria Building (QVB), which offers high fashion in elegant, nineteenth-century heritage surroundings.

Shopping, however, is only one of the many things to do in Sydney. Australia’s own global city and largest local economy, Sydney is the kind of place where you want to stay plugged into what’s going on. Whether you’re chasing business opportunities or just trying to keep your finger on the pulse of arts and culture, it helps to have a high-quality phone with you.

The iPhone has many useful features for professionals and people with busy lives. The Do Not Disturb feature silences notifications so you can maintain your concentration, while a virtual receptionist feature can screen your calls for you, and the fast charge cuts down the time you have to spend waiting around. If the high cost of a new iPhone puts you off, it might be time to consider buying a refurbished iPhone in Sydney.

If you’re wondering why you should buy a refurbished iPhone in Sydney or even what a refurbished phone is, this article is for you. Give refurbished phones a chance, and you’ll see they’re better for your budget and the environment and a better deal in general. So where’s the best place to look for one? Right here on the OzMobiles website.


The Smartphone Refurbishment Process at OzMobiles

If you’re looking for a second hand iPhone in Sydney, you can find one without much effort. You can hunt in second-hand city stores until you find what you want. Or you can go online, which opens up even more freedom of choice and, in some ways, makes the decision even harder. When you buy a used iPhone in Sydney from a stranger online, there’s no way to know what the quality will be like. And what if something goes wrong? Will you be covered under warranty?

An easy way to guarantee that you’re satisfied with your purchase is to buy refurbished.

Refurbished iPhones in Sydney aren’t just second-hand iPhones. They’re iPhones that a retailer like OzMobiles has checked, tested and prepared for resale. The OzMobiles team checks all the features of the phone – mic, camera, speakers – etc. to ensure everything works as it should, including a battery life of at least 80%. Although they’re usually sold according to a grading system that ranks them on the state they’re in, used iPhones in Sydney tend to be close to new, apart from maybe a few cosmetic imperfections.

OzMobiles can buy your old phone or let you trade it in for something new. Once it’s in our hands, we remove all the existing data and restore it to factory settings. At our Melbourne headquarters, we put the phone through a 72-point checking process that ensures the software and hardware still work to the standard you’d expect in Australia. This includes a battery life of at least 80%. We repair as many blemishes and imperfections as possible and do our best to return the phone to a condition as close as possible to new. Then we sell it with a warranty.


Benefits of Buying a Refurbished iPhone

Are refurbished iPhones in Sydney worth buying? The question has a two-part answer, as there are excellent reasons to buy an iPhone if you haven’t already and many excellent reasons to buy it refurbished. When you combine both lists of reasons, the case for buying a refurbished iPhone in Sydney becomes very persuasive!

If you’ve been an Apple user for a while, you’re no doubt already aware of most of the benefits of the iPhone: excellent camera quality, high-level security, the easy integration with other devices on the iOS ecosystem, just to name a few. Maybe you know all this already, and the only thing putting you off buying a second hand iPhone in Sydney so far is that shopping new seems like a more secure option. Luckily refurbished iPhones in Sydney can solve that dilemma for you and really give you the best of both worlds. The top benefits of buying refurbished include:

It’s more affordable

This one is obvious, but it’s the main reason most people buy refurbished. You can save hundreds of dollars on used iPhones in Sydney and Australia-wide, sometimes even a grand.

There’s a wide range of options

If you think refurbished phone retailers have a limited selection, OzMobiles will quickly put that idea to rest. Our range of used iPhones in Sydney includes both old and new styles and models in different conditions with different benefits. There’s something for you, no matter what your price range is or which features you prefer.

It’s better for the environment

E-waste (electronic waste) is the fastest-growing kind of waste in the world. More than 140,000+ tonnes of electronic waste are generated per year in Australia alone, and discarded smartphones are a major part of that. When you buy a used iPhone in Sydney or anywhere else, it means one less phone that needs to be manufactured and one less that gets tossed in the trash.
