How Refurbished phones are processed

Refurbished phones go through a rigorous process to make it renew and work as a new phone

Only those phones that can be reconditioned and refurbished are selected

So how does the refurbished ensure these phones work as new

We only sell refurbished phones which have been fully tested by technical experts

The process involves visual inspection to identify any parts that needs replacement, such aa the screen or back cover

Phone functionality test to determine if there are any defects

The operating system or software is checked for fully functionality

Various tools are used to check the battery life and volume controls

For example, on the settings of an iPhone you can check the battery health. Anything less than 80% means the battery has entered service status and must be replaced with a new and genuine battery parts

Hardware scans are also done

  1. Device Info: Checks the model number, serial number, manufacturer name, firmware version, screen resolution, processor speed, storage space, memory size, RAM, battery capacity, camera type, and sensor resolution.
  2. Battery Health: Checks the status of the battery, charging state, charge level, temperature, current consumption, voltage, and remaining time.
  3. Jailbreak/Rooted:Checks whether the device is jailbroken or rooted. This means the user has installed custom applications and modified the operating system.
  4. Physical Test:Checks the physical appearance of the phone, including the case, buttons, ports, speaker, microphone, cameras, LED lights, headphone jack, SIM card slot, and other components.
  5. Hardware Keys: Checks all hardware keys, including home key, back key, menu key, search key, power button, volume up/down, camera shutter, and lock key.
  6. Sound: Checks the sound output quality of the speakers, earphones, and microphones.
  7. Vision:Checks the camera lens, flash, light sensitivity, image stabilization, autofocus, focus distance, exposure compensation, white balance, ISO, and video recording mode.
  8. Camera/Video: Checks the camera settings such as picture quality, resolution, shutter speed, flash setting, frame rate, flash mode, face detection, touch focus, and HDR.
  9. Touch ID: Checks Touch ID functionality and security features.
  10. Fingerprint/Sensors:Checks fingerprint scanner and sensors.
  11. Live Call: Checks audio call quality and voice recognition.
  12. Microphone:Checks network connectivity, signal strength, WiFi connection, Bluetooth connectivity, GPS, functioning of the built-in apps, etc.



After all these checks are done

The phones data would be wiped, unlocked and software update or reinstallation of software

If the screen has crack it would be replaced using the correct model screen

Batteries are replaced if they don't pass the 80% life

Cleaned and ensure there are no dust on phone

This would make the phone ready for resell
