Don’t know what to look for when buying renewed technology? Here are some helpful guidelines you can use when navigating our site and products.
Excellent (A Grade) - This indicates that there may be one or two scratches on the screen that are not visible while the phone is powered on with some minor dings or scratches on the corners and casing. We’d rate this phone an 8 or a 9 with a 10 being a brand new phone. Not too shabby if we do say so ourselves.
Very Good (B Grade) - There may be a few (less than 4) light scratches on the screen that are not visible when the product is powered on with another heavy scratch that is less than ½ an inch long. Usually has minor dings on the corners and light scratches on the casing. Think of this one as a 7 out of 10 - we’d give this phone a double take if we passed it on the street.
Good (C Grade) - This will have multiple scratches on the screen from normal use with dings on the corners and scratches on the cases. There also may be some chips or nicks on the screen. There are no cracked screens. We rate this one a 5 or 6 out of 10 which is about how we’d rate ourselves after a night out.
Very Good (B Grade) - This phone has been certified by our industry-leading mobile diagnostic software to be 100% fully functional. It is in good cosmetic condition showing only minor signs of use on the outer casing. Screen may show minimal scratching and have a very light screen shadow that will only be noticeable on a white background. This is purely cosmetic and has no effect on the functionality of the product.
Good with Screen Shadow (C Grade) - This product has been certified by our industry-leading mobile diagnostic software to be 100% fully functional. It will show normal signs of use that may include scratching and/or dings on the screen and outer casing. Screen will have a screen shadow from previous use that is mostly noticeable on a white background. This is purely cosmetic and has no effect on the functionality of the product.
Now you know exactly what to expect when you purchase your renewed phone. On an unrelated note, “This is purely cosmetic and has no effect on the functionality of the product” would make a great dating profile bio, just saying.
