Purchasing a secondhand smartphone is one of the best decisions you can make if you are a tech-savvy but frugal person. The latest flagship smartphone with all the greatest features is nice to have, but one can easily cost you $1,000. 


If you are looking for a smartphone but aren't willing to spend so much money, Tech Reboot is the place to go! Tech Reboot is a certified refurbished smart device store that sells lightly-used pre-owned devices as well as recycles old smart devices.


A secondhand smartphone is an excellent investment for many reasons, so read on to find out more! 


You Save Money 


The best reason to buy a secondhand smartphone is that you save a significant amount of money. 


For example, a black 128GB iPhone XR will cost you $549 when purchased on the original site. If you buy the same phone from Tech Reboot, it will only cost you $380, a $169 difference. 


With the extra money left over, you can invest in high-quality protective accessories for your phone. 


You Only Care About Certain Specs 


The most prioritized components of a smartphone are the text and call capabilities, but more than often these days, the camera. 


If you are on the market for a phone with a fantastic camera to capture all of life’s important moments, there is no need to spend a ridiculous amount of money on a flagship. Rather than buy a device with too many features to keep up with, search for a phone that has your top factors.


Many times, you can find a lightly-used or refurbished phone with great camera quality for a fraction of the price of the original. 


You Help Your Environment 

A pre-owned phone not only benefits you but the planet as well. Every time you buy a secondhand phone, you contribute to reducing e-waste, or electronic waste. 


In a landfill, e-waste is any device that is no longer needed and is discarded. The problem is that many times e-waste isn't properly disposed of. 


Despite making up only 2 percent of the total trash in landfills in the USA, e-waste represents 70 percent of overall toxic waste.


About 50 million tons of e-waste are produced each year on a global scale. 


Thanks to Tech Reboot, you can have a global impact on this major problem.

 

Your Tech Mistakes Are More Palatable 

 

Everyone makes mistakes, and sometimes those mistakes result in a cracked touchscreen or water-damaged device

 

You should purchase a lightly-used phone rather than a brand-new one if you are prone to damaging your device.

 

While it may be sad to break your phone, breaking one that is affordable won’t bring as much guilt.
