What are refurbished mobile phones?
In the mobile phone market, refurbished devices are authentic handsets that are made by the original brands and were already bought and returned or re-sold by the old user.
According to this, there are two main types of refurbished devices:
- Brand-new phones that were returned right away without being used because the phone had an issue or a technical problem. These phones are repaired and fixed in order to be re-sold as refurbished.
- Pre-owned devices that are kept pristine by the old user in order to be sold to refurbishment professional shops where the phones are renewed and sold in a like-new condition.
Why choose QwikFone to Buy Refurbished Mobile Phones?
QwikFone's accessory set contains the charger plug, cable, earphones, and SIM tool.
All of those items are checked and tested to ensure their perfect performance. If, at any moment, the accessories are not working properly, we replace them with new ones.
This guarantee lasts for 12 months, which is the period of our warranty policy.
In the same warranty policy, the mobile phone itself can be repaired or replaced. Once the user finds any fault or problem with the phone, they contact QwikFone.
Then our repair professionals receive, fix, and test the device. If the problem is solved, the repair service is free. If, on the other hand, the problem cannot be solved by repairing the phone, we replace the device itself.
Just like the refurbishment, our repair uses OEM and grade-A spare parts. By using these parts, we guarantee that the phone is restored to its perfect condition.
Having a dedicated repair center that is fully equipped enables us to offer premium service and high quality.
Another main aspect of our deals is customer safety. This safety is achieved through the return policy. By giving our customers 30 days for returns, you can feel safe ordering this deal. As such, you will have a whole month to try the phone and return it if you don't like it. Whenever you choose to return the phone during the return policy, you'll get a full refund. QwikFone will also cover the shipping charges for the returned order. So, no risk whatsoever with this deal.
Last but not least, you can pay monthly instalments with QwikFone!
That's right, if you choose PayPal Credit or Klarna, you'll get a 3-payment plan. Both payment methods are free of interest. As such the price of the phone you choose will not increase or change in any way.
A great range of refurbished mobile phones
Our iPhone collection includes various models from the latest iPhones to the more classic ones. As for the Android phone collection, it contains more variety. Choose a Samsung S or Note phone from different generations and models. If you want a different experience with Android, Google Pixel phones are the right choice. If you're looking for premium specs at a low price, OnePlus phones are the way to go!
As our smartphone collection is growing all the time, more choices are available every month!
No matter which smartphone brand you choose, your handset is going to be unlocked.
Using professional and legitimate techniques, our team unlocks all mobile phones. The reason for this is to enable the user to use the phone with multiple carriers.
While the norm is to have the locked phone restricted to just one carrier, this is not the best option. Locked phones restrict the user to one network all the time. When it's time to change your carrier service for any reason, you'll have to change the phone itself.
To keep your phone overseas, you will have to get a roaming bundle. The problem with roaming bundles is how expensive they are, which will affect your budget.
With an unlocked phone, you can replace the SIM card whenever you like with no restrictions. Also, if you travel outside the UK, you can still use the same phone with another SIM card from the new country.
Our tests cover the screen touch sensitivity and brightness. The screen testing also includes a special test to make sure that there are no dead pixels on the display.
In terms of battery, the pristine condition states that the battery has to be at 80% of its life span. This means that, if the battery can be charged 1000 times over its life, the refurbished phone battery will be charged at least 800 times.
As for battery life and capacity, the refurbished phone has 100% capacity like a brand-new phone.
All other functionalities such as the processing power, cameras, and speed are all as good as brand-new.
Well, when the test is being performed by a repair professional who has 5-10 years of experience in the field, you can trust that no issue will go unnoticed. This experience also plays a great role in reconditioning the Android mobile phones as replacing a spare part in a smartphone can return that phone as good as new or have a disastrous effect depending on the skill of the repair professional who is handling this process.
Since the parts are made by the original brand, they can be safely expected to offer the same performance as the parts that were in the phone in its brand-new condition.
