Buying a smart phone or mobile phone is always a tricky proposition. Here are some tips from our experts for buying a used smart phone or mobile phone.

  1. Physically inspect the used smartphone. Watch for damage to the body, like dents and scratches, as well as water damage. Be especially mindful of scratches on the phone and on the camera lens at the back. Take your time with this, don’t rush it. If you are buying a unibody phone where the battery can’t be removed, the water damage indicator is usually placed in the SIM card slot. The best way to find out the place of the indicator on your model is to google it.
  2. If It Opens, Open It. Any flap, cover, port that can be opened—like a push-pin slot for SIM or microSD cards—needs to be tested so open it and check that it’s fine.
  3. Check all the ports. Pop your own headphones into the handset and check if they are working. Connect the charger cable you got to your laptop and see if it’s charging by that port. If it charges by laptop, it’s going to charge by wall socket. Then run these checks with the packaged accessories too.
  4. Pop in your SIM card. Make a call, send a text, and browse to your favorite website. It’s the best way to check those parts of the phone are working well. If the phone is locked to a network and your SIM isn’t from that carrier, you’ll find out immediately with this simple test.
  5. Run the service code test. Each smartphone has a service code that you can use to access a special menu to check whether different parts of the phone are running. Google it to find the one for your device. For example, typing “*#0*#” (without the quotes) on the Samsung Galaxy S3 will start the LCD Test to check different aspects like your touch screen, dimming, speaker, cameras, receiver, vibration, RGB, sensors, and more. Go through each test to make sure the components of the phone are working fine.
  6. Buy used smart phones from trusted seller. Finally it always pays to guy from a trusted and professional seller. At jnp.ae we are committed to providing our buyers of used computers and used mobile phones with best products possible.

Buying a used smartphone can save you a lot of money, but it also involves a few risks—like making sure it’s in good condition and that it isn’t stolen. Here are some tips from our experts at used computer and mobile market Sharjah, UAE.

Smartphone makers release new models every year. Since people always have the itch to upgrade, you can get a great deal on a used smartphone as long as you’re willing to stay behind the cutting edge. Still, buying a used smartphone means you have to do your due diligence. For one, warranty is usually out of the question, or it will at least be significantly reduced. Second, you need to ensure everything is working correctly. And finally, based on these, you have to get the right price.

The point of buying a used smartphone is to get a good price, so you need to put in a little research first. To get the best deal, you need to see how many people are selling that smartphone right now and at what price. To do that, search for the handset on all stores on jnp.ae. You will come across enough listings, but there are a few things to note:

  1. Make sure it’s unlocked. Many stores in UAE are selling locked smartphones, which cost a little less than what you would look for but you have to unlock it to use!
  2. Don’t note the median price, note the prices of what you are looking for. Used smartphones come in various levels of condition, so you need to actually click those links and read the description to know whether the condition meets what you are looking for. Once you find such items, note their prices as that’s what your reference is, not items which are in better or worse condition.
  3. Check the price of what a new phone costs with similar specifications. If you’re buying a one-year-old smartphone for a price where you can get a similar new phone, the deal isn’t worth it because you lose out on warranty.
  4. Make sure all the accessories are intact. If they aren’t, find out what it would cost you to buy each accessory and use that as a bargaining chip to reduce the price.

It pays to think like a smartphone seller when you are looking to buy. Our article on selling a smartphone has a rundown of how to consider things like product cycles, location, age and condition to figure out the price of a device. The same things hold true for the buyer.
