Refurbished iPhones have become more and more popular in the last couple of years due to the savings people can make on them as opposed to buying a new iPhone from Apple. So what is a refurbished iPhone and is it really as good as a brand new Apple phone? Well here at foodietowns.ie I got myself a refurbished iPhone from an online store here in Ireland and I had it delivered in 4 days which isn’t too bad so I will use my personal experience and bare in mind that this is just my thoughts.
I got an iPhone 5C after having an android phone for years which I did like but it was getting too slow. I do actually prefer android as I find it more open and on the IOS for the iPhone I find you have to sign up for everything which becomes annoying. Anyway so I paid €290.00 for the refurbished iPhone 5C as opposed to €499.00 for a brand new iPhone 5C so that is quite a decent savings. I made sure that the website I bought from offer a warranty so what could go wrong?
So I got my phone and it was network unlocked as promised and I went ahead and set it up. Everything seems to be working normally on it except I did have trouble with the bluetooth for the first few days. In any case if there was a problem they say that they can repair or replace it so happy days. So far so good and it seems to be as good as a brand new iPhone 5C so I guess I am happy out with my €200 savings!
