Is refurbished the same as second-hand?

No, a refurbished iPhone is an Apple smartphone that has been completely overhauled before sale. This means that the device has been repaired, cleaned, updated and if necessary, provided with new parts. As a result, a refurbished iPhone has the quality of a new device, but you pay much less. More information can be found here.

Why should I buy a refurbished iPhone?

A refurbished iPhone is ideal for people who want a good quality phone but find a new iPhone too expensive. Because the device has been fully checked, you can be sure that your iPhone meets the quality requirements of a new smartphone. In addition, you get a refurbished iPhone warranty, so your phone will be repaired or replaced free of charge if something is wrong. At Refurbished.store you even get up to 3 years warranty on your Apple iPhone.

Is the quality of a refurbished phone as good as a new one?

Refurbished iPhones are offered in different degrees. The format is based on the quality of the iPhone, paying attention to scratches, dents and other imperfections. A commonly used subdivision in quality is:
  • A-grade

  • B-grade

  • C-grade

At Refurbished.store we sell iPhones with A-grade, B-grade or C-grade condition. An A-grade iPhone, or a five-star iPhone, is as good as new. The condition of such an iPhone is almost perfect and you can not actually see that it has been used. A B-grade refurbished iPhone, an iPhone with four stars, is in good condition. This means that the iPhone looks very neat and almost like new, but has light signs of use. With 3 stars you technically buy a functional iPhone, in appearance it is clearly used and the least beautiful. View the differences below or click here for an overview table.
