We’re going to answer this question immediately – it’s the CPO (Certified Pre-Owned device). We could also end this article right here but instead, allow us to explain just why purchasing a CPO device – at weFix, we call it the i2 – is a far, far better option.
First things first, we’re not going to lie, second-hand devices are often cheaper than certified pre-owned devices but keep in mind that you’re getting a second-hand device as is and often times it will be missing key accessories, may have issues with its internal components and worse… it could be stolen. The condition of the phone greatly differs when picking up an i2 device.
That being said, an i2 device could be sat next to a brand new iPhone and you’d have a hard time finding much difference in the condition. This is because i2 devices go through one million and one quality checks. Each phone goes through meticulous tests, is repaired, and where needed is refaced and updated with the latest software. Absolutely everything is tested, from the audio quality, to call quality, screens, ports, docks - - everything. Once all of that is done, we tie the device up in a nice little bow (no actual bows, sorry) into a brand new package with – and here’s the great part – brand new accessories. This means you’re not given earphones or a charger that may be on the brink of breaking.
Finally, an i2 device comes with a 3-month manufacturer warranty. If you buy a second-hand device from a friend – no warranty. Gumtree – no warranty. Facebook Marketplace – no warranty. That’s what sets i2 and other CPOs apart – peace of mind that it has been examined and refurbished by a skilled professional and a warranty to back it up.
i2 gives you the opportunity to own a flagship device at a fraction of the cost. No need to walk in to a pricey store and rack up serious debt on a brand new phone, where a cost-effective almost-brand-spanking-new i2 will work just as well.
