Tips for buying a used iPhone
Jun 20, 2017 04:56 PM 1215 Views

Hey whats up this is Nishant Kumar and today i will be giving you some tips on buying a used iPhone.

1) The very first thing that you need to check before buying a used iPhone is the body. Make sure that the phone you are buying has the same look and feel as of new iPhone. Do not buy an iPhone if its body is scratchy , looks old and its all glossy shine has faded away. I am saying this because your phone will be with you always so if you buy a damaged body iPhone then it will show bad impression on others.

So make sure to buy an iPhone that has no or least scratch and had still shiny surface and the touch screen is not damaged.

2) Check whether the iPhone is not fake because there are many fake iPhones available in the market. You can check internet to take help for spotting a fake iPhone.

3) Make sure to verify the IMEI, ESN or MEID number of the iPhone. There are chances that the iPhone that you are going to purchase is carrier locked due to any reason like non payment or maybe due to stolen case. Or maybe the device is fabricated and opened to change the internal parts of the phone. So to avoid this do check and match the IMEI number on the back of the phone with the one in the OS.

4) Check if the phone is not water damaged. Every iphone is equipped with a LCI - Liquid Contact Indicator that turns red when contact with water or any other liquid.

5) Do check the camera by taking picture and recording video. Also check the flash light.

6) Check for the battery performance. Set the brightness to maximum, turn the wifi on and also Bluetooth on , take pictures make videos and also make call for atleast 3 minutes. If the battery starts to drain quickly or if the device becomes hot in that course then it is obvious that the battery is damaged and suitable to use.

7) Test all the these features - Wifi, GPS, Hotspot, Bluetooth

8) Check all the buttons and play song to check the loud speaker and also insert headphone to check the audio port. Also check the charging port.

9) Try checking the touch functionality by using each and every corner of the whole screen by using any drawing application.

Buying a used iPhone is not so easy than buying a new iPhone, so if you keep these tips in your mind then you may be able to buy a good used iPhone.

Thank you
