9 Best Refurbished iPhones in Nigeria (Features & Prices)

Do you know that you can get 100% genuine refurbished iPhone 6 plus, 7 plus, 8 plus, and iPhone XR in Nigeria? Yes, you can, and you will if you are ready.

In this post, I will explain more about Refurbished iPhone because many don’t understand the term “Refurbished,” but I will explain it in a way that you will appreciate.

Getting a refurbished iPhone was almost impossible in Nigeria because you can only get it from a website like Amazon and eBay, which many Nigerians are unfamiliar with. Right now, you can buy a refurbished iPhone right here in Nigeria without paying that outrageous shipping duty charges. Interesting right? I am going to show you how and where to buy a refurbished iPhone 6, 7, 8, and iPhone XR.:

An Apple iPhone can be bought in the following standard

  • New
  • Used
  • Refurbished

New Apple iPhone: You don’t need much explanation because you already know what the term “New” means. When you go to the market and buy a new iPhone, it will be categorized as a brand new phone. A new iPhone has never been opened or used by anyone, but it’s more expensive than used and refurbished ones.

Used Apple iPhones: When you buy an Apple phone or any other smartphone from someone who has been using it and decides to sell it, it becomes a used iPhone. Even if you buy it newly from those people selling London-used iPhones, it’s still a used iPhone as long as the carton has been opened by someone else. People go for used iPhones because it’s far cheaper than the new iPhones.

The term Refurbished what does it mean?

I will like to use this opportunity to clear the misconception many Nigerians have about refurbished phones. Refurbished phones are not fake or in any way inferior to the none refurbished ones, but I will explain the difference.

Refurbished stands for renovating and redecorating something, well, a mobile phone is not a house that you renovate or redecorate, but somehow it’s the same thing. Let me explain further.

Refurbished phones are those smartphones, mostly iPhones, that are returned to the original seller due to some detected faults and then taken back by the seller or manufacturer to look into the faults and repair them again under full quality check with the best industrial standards and sold again. However, those phones cannot be packaged and sold as new but as refurbished Phones.

These refurbished phones still come with a warranty, just like a new one. Being a refurbished phone doesn’t mean that the phone is not original but because the phone has been returned to the seller for certain reasons, repaired, and sold again as a refurbished iPhone. you can read more about Refurbished iPhones here

According to the rules, once an iPhone is returned to the seller for defect, it will be repaired and sold as a refurbished phone and not as USED or NEW anymore.
