How to check the state of a second hand phone
There are two main routes to follow carefully while inspecting a second hand mobile phone before purchasing it. The first one is to check the body of the phone to make sure that it doesn't have any severe cracks, scratches, or marks. While it is acceptable to have a few scratches on a second hand phone's body in exchange for the price reducing, there are certain areas where even cosmetic wear signs represent a problem. For example, a scratch on the camera module of the second hand mobile will create far more problems than just affecting the appearance of the phone.
Similarly, screen wear signs can vary from a minor scratch that can be ignored for some users to serious cracks that affect the usability of the whole smartphone as it entirely depends on having an intact usable touch screen.
So, it is important to check the phone's body, focusing on the screen and the camera modules, and to make sure that it is not only acceptable but more importantly, to your liking.
The second route that you must take while checking the health and condition of a second hand smartphone before buying it, is the functionality of the device. That includes the battery, software, and processor performance. There are a few tests that you can run to eliminate the risk and make sure that all of those aspects of the phone are working fine.
For example, you want to make sure that the screen of the second hand phone has not been replaced before or if it has been replaced, that the current screen is OEM. The way to confirm this is by simply checking the brightness and the touch sensitivity and responsiveness of the screen.
To check the battery, display, speakers, and the microphone. Simply make a video call or play a video then make a voice call. A lengthy call and a video should not drain more than 5%-10% of a healthy battery. Of course, noticing the sound and the display of the phone will be enough of a test for you to confirm or deny the good condition of the phone as second hand device.
Of course, buying a second hand phone online will not allow you to conduct any of these tests or even see the phone in your hands before paying for it. So, in case you're looking for a second hand phone in the UK and you're looking to buy it online, the best option would be to buy the second hand phone in a pristine condition and to choose a deal that guarantees the condition and your ability to return the device if you don't like it.
Buy second hand mobile phones at a specialized center
To achieve the best end of a second hand phone deal and to be safe enough, it is better to buy your second hand phone from a shop or a specialized phone center rather than buying someone's old phone as second hand or buying a second hand phone from a random one-time seller online, which is even worse.
An individual seller won't be able to provide you with any guarantees or assurances of any kind. Typically, the deal would be summed up in exchanging the second hand phone for the money and that is it.
With a second hand phone shop, on the other hand, you will be dealing with professionals that are able, first of all, to confirm and guarantee the condition of the phone, offer repair service and a warranty policy, accept returns and provide refunds, and run all the test that you need to run on the phone for you since you will be buying the second hand phone online.
