Advantages to Buying Used Cell Phones

By March 9, 2017No Comments

“Should I buy a used cell phone?” It’s a common question whether you’re looking at buying a phone for the first time or upgrading your existing one. While it’s tempting to own the latest and greatest in cell phone technology, there are definite advantages of buying used cell phones — and there are absolutely good, used smartphones available for purchase.

So, should you buy a used cell phone? Here are a few advantages to buying used phones to consider:

1. Price

This is the most obvious advantage to buying a used cell phone. You can get a used phone for a much lower price than a brand-new phone. This is true even if you are buying a used version of the latest generation of that company’s phone. If you are buying an earlier generation, you may be able to get it much more cheaply, and the reality is that there are often only a few minor differences from one phone generation to the next.

2. The Environment

The longer you keep a phone in circulation, the less likely it is to end up in a landfill. Many used phones are perfectly good and are just being discarded because someone has bought a new phone. It’s terribly wasteful (and potentially harmful) to just let those phones go into the garbage, landfills, or oceans. By buying a used cell phone, you are contributing to preserving the environment.

3. Helping Others

Someone who is selling their cell phone probably could use the money. By buying it, you’re helping that person and helping to stimulate the economy. And when you’re ready to sell your used cell phone, you’ll certainly appreciate the buyers out there for you.
