For example a buying a brand new Samsung s4 will set you back £259.95 (http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/, 24.05.2016 ) , however the same mobile phone in a grade A refurbished condition with 6 months warranty would cost you £119.95 ( www.refurb-phone.com , 24.05.2016). That is a saving of £140. AMAZING !!!!. This is just one example out of many therefore when searching for your next mobile phone be sure to search on the internet for a refurbished device.
2. Functionality Of A Refurbished Mobile Phone
A refurbished mobile phone is sold at a lower price than a brand new mobile phone however the functionality is identical to buying a brand new device, including the cosmetics. Refurbished mobile phones also come with warranty like a brand new mobile phone too.
3. Buying A Refurbished Phone Can Help The Environment
If the first two advantages didn’t persuade you to purchase a refurbished mobile phone over a new one than this almost certainly will.
According to a recent survey
‘’A new report suggests that around 17 million gadgets, including mobile phones, sat-navs and music players bypass recycling schemes and head straight to landfill sites.’’ ( Ref: http://thenextweb.com/uk/2012/02/07/17m-gadgets-bypass-recycling-schemes-and-end-up-in-landfill-sites-says-uk-report/)
This is a sad ending to a device that could have been reused. By buying a refurbished mobile phone you are helping the environment as you are helping fewer gadgets entering landfill sites. Unfortunately Earth is the only planet that we know that can sustain human life. We need to look after it to the best of our ability.
4. Your Rights
Your rights as a consumer remains unchanged when buying a refurbished mobile phone. You can still take advantage of a 14 days peace of mind guarantee. Most companies who sell refurbished mobile phones also provide a warranty that is in line with the warranty of a brand new mobile phone. So your always on a win win situation.
5. No Need For Long Mobile Phone Contract Extensions
This is another no brainer in saving money. A lot of people don’t want to get tied in to a long 24 month contract so opt for a sim only rolling contract deal. They then buy the mobile phone outright. You can save even more money by buying a refurbished mobile phone and not get tied into long mobile phone contract.
