Refurbished iPhones – a Good Value Investment

Refurbished iPhones – a Good Value Investment

The market for used phones in Australia has experienced considerable growth over the past few years, with experts estimating over 300 million units to be shipped globally by 2023. Modern refurbished phones are a safe and reliable option when looking for a new smartphone. Whether it’s a refurbished iPhone or a refurbished Samsung, Roobotech have a variety of previously owned and demo phones that function as good as new. A refurbished phone is a smart investment that saves you money.

What is a Refurbished Phone?

Refurbished phones are mobile phones that have been previously owned by somebody else. They might be demo models, privately used or damaged phones that are purchased and restored. If their process is anything like here at Roobotech, they’re rigorously assessed for  individual quality and functional issues. The newly acquired iPhones, Androids and other smartphones are then repaired, graded based on their condition and sold to the public with a guarantee of quality.

Refurbished Phones vs Second Hand Phones

Refurbished phones and second hand phones are not the same thing. While some second hand phones may have been previously refurbished, and some refurbished phones might be second hand – this does not make them inherently the same thing. Refurbished phones have been professionally restored and handled with care. A skilled technician has used safe and reliable parts to bring a refurbished phone as close to new as possible. A second hand phone purchased from a private reseller online, or in person, rarely offers any such guarantee of quality. With no comprehensive assessment taking place, it generally poses a higher risk for the buyer.

Are They Safe to Use?


Yes. All refurbished phones sold at Roobotech are quality tested. You can be sure that everything we make available for sale is completely safe and has passed our strict checklist. Whether they’re demo model phones or come from private trade ins, they have been thoroughly tested for safety.
