When was the last time you upgraded your smartphone – and what motivated that upgrade? Was it a new set of features that you wanted to try, or was it that your old device stopped working thereby creating an urgent need for the next new device?
Whatever your reasoning for upgrading, we’re here to guide you in a slightly different direction – away from the newest device on the market and towards the high-quality used iPhone 13 Pro and other up-to-date models.
And this isn’t just a business move on our part. Buying a second-hand smartphone or device has genuine, tangible benefits that we believe every consumer should be aware of. Here are three of the ones that we think will resonate with you.
Prevent functioning phones from going to landfill
Did you know that any smartphone which is simply discarded is sent to landfill – often a large site somewhere overseas, where the devices slowly break down and release harmful toxins and chemicals into the surrounding environment, habitats, and waterways?
The damage that these landfill sites have on our planet is devastating – but buying second-hand can help. That’s because, when you buy second-hand devices, you prevent perfectly good phones from being sent to these landfill sites – instead granting them a new lease of life.
Save hundreds of pounds
Another reason to upgrade through a second-hand seller rather than by purchasing a brand-new smartphone is to save yourself hundreds of pounds. With reputable sellers stocking like-new and excellent condition smartphones, as well as those which fall under both good and acceptable condition categories, buying second-hand doesn’t have to mean it has been used and worn out.
In fact, many consumers find that they can pick up an almost new smartphone for a fraction of the price, while also doing their bit for the environment. Simply work out your budget and search within the boundaries of that budget on your chosen reseller site.
Minimise your waste contribution
No, we’re not finished with the environmental benefits of upgrading your smartphone through the used market. Not only does buying a used iPhone prevent perfectly functional models from being sent to landfill, but it also reduces demand on the brand new consumer market – removing your contribution towards the wasteful tendencies of the technology market.
We are programmed by society to always want the latest new thing – but the revival of second-hand and preloved items, both in the technology sector and beyond, is creating waves of change which we hope will continue. Next time you want a new upgrade or smartphone, buying a second-hand device will prevent that phone from being sent to landfill and will boost your own green commitments – not to mention, it’ll save you a ton of money!
