A real head-turner from Apple which cemented the popularity of the bigger screen. Two top quality cameras, a smooth and fluid interface, and on release, Apple’s longest ever battery meant this was more than just a big display.
What's the difference between a refurbished iPhone 7 Plus and a brand-new model?
A refurbished phone is an unwanted handset that has been returned to a mobile supplier or network for whatever reason - possibly due to a fault or the owner simply changed their mind. If it’s refurbished, it means the phone has been restored to its factory settings and given a thorough maintenance check and repair.
You can also vary the balance between your monthly fee and any upfront cost.
Why choose a second-hand model over a brand-new handset?
Brilliantly, there are a number of reasons why a refurbished handset might be the best choice for you.
- You'll save money. Because a refurbished phone isn’t fresh out of the box, it’ll be cheaper than buying a brand-new model.
- You could get a warranty. Although you might not realize it, established retailers and major networks offer warranty on refurbished phones. The warranty usually lasts around 12-months, though the time period will vary depending on the manufacturer.
- Lots of choice - more choice over of device, network and allowance.
- It's better for the environment. Opting for a recycled handset is better for the environment.
