At Gomibo, we also sell refurbished iPhones. These phones have been used before, but have then gone through a thorough quality check and repaired if necessary. Find out what refurbished means, what the advantages are, and what to look out for on this page!

What is refurbished?

A refurbished iPhone has been used before and then cleaned, restored, and refurbished. However, these devices may have minor signs of use, such as small scratches on the casing or display. The battery may also have declined a little, but the battery capacity is always at least 85% compared to a new battery. When using mobile devices, it is normal for the battery capacity to decrease the longer you use the device. Before these iPhones are sold, we make sure they are once again in peak condition. Only Made For iPhone parts are used to do so. Moreover, these iPhones are tested on more than 50 different points. All in all: the interior of the devices is 100% operational and the exterior may have slight scratches that make the iPhones appear not completely brand new.

The refurbished devices sold by Gomibo always fall under the 'lightly used' category. This means that some user damage may be visible, but there are no cracked screens or defects. So the exterior is no longer brand new, but the device has been checked, refurbished, and cleaned.
