What's the difference between a refurbished iPhone 8 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.

Why choose a second-hand iPhone 8 Plus over a brand-new model?

Here’s a few reasons why you might want to opt for a refurbished phone:

  • Because a refurbished phone isn’t fresh out of the box, it’ll be cheaper than buying a brand-new model.
  • If you buy from an established retailer or one of the major networks, you’ll get a warranty. The warranty usually lasts around 12-months, though the time period will vary depending on the manufacturer.
  • Lots of choice over which device, network and allowance.
  • Since you can go SIM-only, plans are more flexible.
  • Recycling phones is better for the environment.

Search our deals table of mobile networks and retailers to find a refurbished iPhone 8 Plus deal.

Use the filters to find the right tariff of minutes, texts and data and storage options. You can also vary the balance between your monthly fee and any upfront cost.

Is the iPhone 8 Plus worth buying?

Building on the design and specs of the iPhone 8, the 8 Plus comes with a larger 5.5-inch screen - a phablet no less. Like the standard iPhone 8, it's HDR-ready too, so colours are super crisp when you watch compatible videos.

The excellent dual-lens camera gives you one telephoto, and one wide-angle, both of which work in tandem to perfect your photos. Substantial battery life, great speakers and wireless charging are big ticks, though the somewhat dated design may put off some looking for a sleeker, more contemporary handset.
