ReNew: What Everybody Ought To Know About Refurbished Phones
New phones are being released constantly. We all want to stay up to date with modern technology but the high price tags of some of the new devices are sometimes a bit of a deal breaker.
What if I told you it didn't have to be?
In your search for the perfect phone, you have probably seen listings for renewed, refurbished, remanufactured and slightly used phones but been worried that you will end up wasting your money on a device that doesn't work or looks used. For you, this doesn't seem like an option because, like everyone else, you want a phone that you can be proud to show off.
The truth is if you do your research and buy from a trusted seller, you can buy a phone that looks and works as new for a fraction of the cost of a brand new phone.
So how do you make sure you are getting a good phone?
As you can imagine, it's not always easy to spot good sellers from bad sellers, especially on the internet... but it is a lot easier if you know what questions to ask!
That's why in this post we want to give you the information you need to help you find the right phone, at the right price, from the right seller.
New vs. ReNew: What’s the Difference?
Whenever a new phone is released, we all know that it is going to come with a fairly hefty price tag. After all, advances in technology don't come cheap. The thing that a lot of people are unaware of is that buying a reNewed phone is a great option when you want a recently launched phone at a more affordable price.
We often get a lot of great feedback from customers who were initially apprehensive about buying a reNewed device from us. The reason? Although refurbished/reNewed is a term that is well known throughout the technology industry, it is not regulated or standardised so what you see from one seller could be completely different from another. It is important that when buying a refurbished phone, you buy from someone you are familiar with or can find out more information about.
ReNewed devices sold by Meelie Mobile were once sold as new but were either returned or traded in. Once we receive the devices, we send them to a certified repair centre where they receive any repairs or cosmetic work required. Any parts that are replaced are genuine parts so we can ensure that you are paying for something that will look and function as new.
We pride ourselves on our extremely high standards so there is very little difference between buying a refurbished device from us or buying a brand new phone. The main difference being that the phone will be unlocked and network free so you can use with any UK or European SIM card.
What to Consider When Looking For A ReNewed Device:
If you are looking to buy a reNewed phone from Meelie Mobile or anywhere else there are a few things to consider before you part with any money:
- Buy from reputable sellers. If you have never heard of the seller, check to see if they have a website, do they have an Amazon account with reviews?
- Look for sellers that are using certified repair centres or technicians and genuine parts during the refurbishing process.
- Make sure that the company offers a warranty with each device. At Meelie Mobile, we offer a 12-month warranty with all our devices.
- Refurbished phones will be cheaper than brand new ones but they shouldn't be an absolute bargain. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is.
So, now you are really to start shopping and find yourself the perfect reNewed phone at a great price. Remember to use the tips above to help you find the best phone for you.
