Buying a pre-owned IPhone doesn’t mean compromising on quality. If you’re searching for a cheaper alternative to buying a new iPhone, then the range of pre-owned iPhone XRs in Dubai are for you.
If you are willing to buy a pre-owned or refurbished iPhone, you could save yourself a lot of money. If you spend a little time shopping around, you'll be able to find a brand-new iPhone for a fraction of the price. Below, I have highlighted the best places to buy refurbished and pre-owned iPhone XR as well as few key things to look out for, to protect yourself from getting ripped.
REASONS TO BUY Pre-owned IPhone XR
- Supremely slick and powerful
- Very strong camera
- Great battery life
- Excellent build quality
The XR comes in six colours – plain silver and black are pretty boring by this point. The red is our favourite, but we’re big fans of the yellow and coral too.
With the iPhone XR, Apple has created an iPhone that delivers 95 percent of the high-end iPhone XS experience at 75 percent of the cost. Yes, there are compromises: The screen and the camera take small steps back from the XS models, along with a few other feature nips and tucks. If you’re using the XR after using XS, the only feature you will truly miss is the rear camera's telephoto lens.
But the iPhone XR actually makes a few improvements on its more expensive siblings. Its screen is bigger than the XS' (6.1 versus 5.8 inches), it comes in a wider array of fun colours and -- significantly -- it has the best battery life of any current iPhone you can buy.
It's important to know the dangers associated with buying a pre-owned iPhone before taking the plunge. The most common scam is to buy a stolen phone. Not only is buying a stolen phone a crime, but it could also lead to the phone being locked later down the line. There are several ways to ensure that you’re making a safe investment.
These are our top tips for making sure you don’t get ripped off when purchasing a used iPhone
Please check the IMEI number
An IMEI is a unique number that identifies any phone in the world. If it is stolen, the IMEI will be reported to the carrier, and be locked. This means that your SIM will not work with a locked phone.
Check the seller’s return policy
Some sellers offer a return policy, which gives extra peace of mind. These sellers are often big resellers who have an established brand or shop. You’ll not find private sellers offering a return policy, as there are no laws surrounding the sale of pre-owned purchases.
Check for an iCloud account, reset and set up the iPhone
You should request the seller to charge the phone before bringing it to you.
