There’s no getting around the fact that smartphones are expensive, with many of the latest flagship handsets retailing for upwards of 1500EUR. The iPhone in particular is notoriously pricey, a factor which has often put buyers off and has pushed them towards picking up a cheaper Android phone instead.
However, there is another option for those looking to get an iPhone on a budget: refurbished handsets. While many often believe a refurbished iPhone would be damaged in some way, or lacking in performance compared to a brand-new handset, that isn’t the case. In fact, you can often bag a device that is good as new without having to break the bank.
Is it safe to buy a refurbished phone?
Provided you’re buying from a reputable retailer, it’s perfectly safe to buy a refurbished phone. Most refurbished phones come with a warranty so you should be protected if there’s anything wrong with it. But it’s always best to check if the device comes with a warranty before buying it.
