iPhone is undeniably one of the best phones, although a new one is expensive. The high prices tend to scare away many would-be buyers. As a result, the demand for used or refurbished iPhones goes up due to their relative cheapness. Currently, iPhone XR is out and is quickly gaining traction in the market. Here is what is in the used iPhone XR.
Used iPhone XR has an internal storage of 64/128/256 GB and 3 GB RAM. It runs on iOS 12 or iOS 14, is known for its secure operating system and has a 12-megapixel camera. It has fast performance and great long battery life. It comes in a variety of elegant colors, thus providing customers with a variety of options to choose from. It has an integrated inductive charging system and dual SIM card.
On the flip side, it is relatively expensive compared to certain android and iPhone models. It is water-resistant but not waterproof. Some people say it is too large, which makes it difficult to use it with one hand. Although it has 3 GB RAM, it is not lime well with iOS compared with other iPhone makes. The camera is less sophisticated because it lacks a telephoto lens. It has a lower quality display compared to other iPhone models.
If one is buying from an Apple-certified seller, chances are they will have an IMEI number. An IMEI number shows whether the phone is stolen or not. Alternatively, one can simply insert the SIM card into the mobile device. If it asks for the original owner’s ID, then it would be impossible to use the phone if you don’t have the number.
One can choose to buy the phone from Apple-approved sellers or directly from Apple. Regardless of where one buys, customers get at least a 12-month warranty just in case the phone develops a technical issue. There is also a helpful customer service that deals with complaints.
It is advisable that one confirms with the phone company to be certain that the phone is not locked. iPhone XR is particularly not carrier locked and can work with Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile.
Where to buy the used iPhone
There are a number of places one can buy the phone, including Apple, phone companies, and used resellers. Apple sells the refurbished phones online. Phone companies also trade in old phones with new ones. They refurbish the old ones and resell them. On the other hand, used resellers buy and sell the refurbished iPhones. Some carriers sell refurbished phones. They test the used iPhones to check if they are functioning as expected. They carry out repairs where necessary to get the phone in shape before selling them at discounted prices.
Water damage is a real concern for older generation phones. One way of telling whether the phone has ever been contaminated with water is by looking for red signs in the SIM card slot. If the SIM card slot is red, it confirms that the Liquid Contact Indicator (LCI) has been activated, which occurs when there is water damage.
