The Pros and Cons of Buying a Refurbished Phone

The Pros and Cons of Buying a Refurbished Phone

Dear Phone Reseller,

In today's fast-moving smartphone market, buying refurbished phones has become a popular option for customers looking for top-of-the-range devices at a lower cost. But what are the pros and cons for your business and your customers?

 Advantages of buying refurbished phones: 


1. Affordability: One of the main attractions of refurbished phones is their lower cost compared to new models. This allows customers on a budget to access top-of-the-range phones without spending a fortune.



2. Warranty and reliability: Serious suppliers like us generally offer warranties on refurbished phones (7 days, 6 months, 1 year). This gives customers peace of mind that the phone has been thoroughly inspected and repaired if necessary.


Quality & Performance

3. Quality and performance: Refurbished phones often undergo a rigorous reconditioning process, where faulty parts are replaced and technical issues are resolved. As a result, customers can get a phone that is in excellent working order and close to the performance of a new model.



4. Less environmental impact: Purchasing refurbished phones helps to reduce electronic waste and preserve natural resources, which is a major benefit for environmentally conscious customers in the current climate.


🔴 Disadvantages of buying refurbished phones:


Limited availability

1. Limited availability: Depending on the model of phone you are looking for, the availability of refurbished phones may be limited, as it depends on the supply of second-hand or refurbished products on the market. The most recent models will be harder to find.



2. Rapid obsolescence: Refurbished phones, while offering excellent quality, may be based on slightly older models. This means that they may become obsolete more quickly than the latest models, but we make every effort to ensure that this happens as little as possible.


Battery Life

3. Battery life: Batteries in refurbished phones may have a reduced capacity due to previous use. That's why at Molano we only sell devices with a battery life of over 85% (and 80% for iPads).


Apple packaging

4. Lack of original packaging: Unlike new phones, refurbished phones may be delivered in generic packaging rather than the manufacturer's original packaging, which may disappoint some customers. However, we still offer CPO bundles, which are refurbished bundles sent by Apple in their original packaging.

In conclusion, there are many advantages to buying refurbished phones, including affordability, reliable quality and helping to reduce e-waste. However, it is essential that you find suppliers who offer guarantees and thoroughly inspect each device, as Molano does, to ensure customer satisfaction.
