Want to make your next phone a Samsung Galaxy? If you’ve been browsing the web looking for the best place to buy Samsung Galaxy phones online, this article is for you. While used smartphones aren’t hard to find, there are pitfalls and minefields involved with buying them online. Not every seller can be trusted. And with no warranty, if you don’t get what you paid for, you’re on your own.

Luckily there’s an easy way to avoid those issues, and that’s to buy refurbished phones online.

Refurbished phones are still second-hand, but there are some crucial differences between them and other used smartphones. The main one: a refurbished smartphone gives you a phone that’s as good as new – or close enough to it – while saving you several hundreds of dollars off the recommended retail price.

Refurbished phones come in all shapes and sizes, all brands and models. This includes Samsung Galaxy phones, the biggest sellers on the Android market.

There are many excellent reasons to buy a Samsung Galaxy phone: the world’s biggest app store, multi-tasking capabilities, terrific cameras and security that even governments trust, among others. Of course, if you’ve been buying Samsung phones for a while, you already know how these phones can make your life easier (long battery lives and health apps definitely help with that). If you’ve never owned a Samsung Galaxy phone before, it’s easy to find refurbished versions of the company’s many top-selling models.

So what are refurbished phones, and what makes them so special? Here’s the rundown on what a refurbished phone is, why it’s a better deal for you, your pocket and the planet and how to buy Samsung Galaxy phones online, refurbished! 

What is a Refurbished Phone?

Refurbished smartphones are previously owned phones that professionals and businesses have tested and repaired if necessary before putting them on sale. OzMobiles test every phone that comes our way to make sure it’s fully functional, repairing or replacing any parts that don’t work as they should. We make sure the phone isn’t stolen or lost, restore it to factory settings, replace any pieces that need replacing and make sure the battery life is up to speed.

Refurbished phones are usually sold in grades, from those that are in a new-like condition to those that are a little more worn-out. They can be old or new. In fact, some are recent models that have only been removed from their boxes to be displayed in retail stores. These are called “ex-demo” phones.

There are a number of excellent reasons to choose refurbished when you buy Samsung Galaxy phones online:

They’re a lot more affordable

As amazing as Samsung Galaxy phones are, there’s no doubt that new flagship smartphones aren’t cheap. When you buy refurbished phones online, you save up to 40% or more. The older the phones are, the bigger the savings you can find – and there are a lot of older Samsung phones that are still worth buying

They’re a lot better for the environment

There’s a lot that goes into the production of smartphones that most people don’t see and a lot that happens to them when they get tossed out. The practice of mining materials for smartphones creates huge amounts of waste and negatively impacts the health of people living in those areas. Discarded smartphones are also a leading cause of e-waste (electronic waste), the fastest-growing stream of waste in the entire world. To buy Samsung Galaxy phones online (or any other kind of Android phones online) means one less smartphone that has to be manufactured and one less that ends up at the tip. It cuts down on your carbon footprint and helps you take care of the planet.

There’s so much variety
