Demo, CPO, New & Refurbished Devices

What are Demo, Certified Pre-owned (CPO), New and Refurbished Smartphones?

Demo Smartphones are no different to a brand new phone but at a fraction of the cost. We sell Apple, Samsung, Huawei and Sony demo phones that for one reason or another have been out of their packaging at some point in time, box damaged, factory seconds or customer “14 day” returns. They are in like-new condition with minimal / no marks on them with full functionality and working like new. They come in their original box (unless its condition was unsuitable a plain box will be provided) and contain all their original parts and unless specified all the original unused accessories. Their batteries are basically unused and as good as new.The only difference from a brand new product is the box has been opened and the manufacturer warranty may not be claimed. A Techexchange 6-month warranty are sold with every demo phone. In certain instances, generic packaging and accessories may be provided.

These are Not Demo or Dummy phones you find inside a cellphone store. They function and work 100% as a brand new phone would. We test all our demo phones with a 32-point checklist before they go out for sale. Very seldom something can still go wrong, just let us know immediately and we’ll sort it out ASAP. Demo smartphones are not always the cheapest but they are a class above certified pre-owned and used second-hand devices. We sell them cheaper because they aren’t brand new but we assure you they are working and look like new. A Techexchange 6-month warranty and 7-day Guarantee will ensure your demo phone is covered in the event of any hardware faults not caused by physical or liquid damage. Buy a Demo phone to not only save cash but to buy a quality product, we promise you will be happy, see our amazing Reviews on GoogleHello Peter and BidorBuy  where we also sell and from past customers at the bottom of our Home page.

Refurbished Smartphones are equivalent to new devices, reconditioned to ‘Factory New’ states. These devices are in ‘as new’ condition with minimal / no marks on them. Refurbished devices are thoroughly tested and quality checked to guarantee to function as new. Packaging may be provided in a customised box with a generic high-quality charging cable and 2-pin USB wall plug. A TechExchange 6-month warranty and 7-day guarantee are sold with all of our Refurbished products.

Certified Pre-owned / CPO Smartphones are purchased through reputable channels and are in either Excellent or Very Good conditions and will be stated in the product descriptions if any marks or knocks are on the device. CPO devices are fully tested and quality checked to guarantee to function as new. Packaging may be provided in a customised box with a high-quality charging cable. A 6 month Techexchange warranty and 7-day guarantee are sold with all of our CPO products.

New imported iPhones which are older discontinued models are refurbished to New and function and look brand new. They are packaged in their original boxes with original accessories and sold with a 6 month Techexchange warranty. Their parts are a combination of original Apple parts but batteries and display may be replaced with Grade A parts if they required replacing. This will in no way hinder their quality and functionality but if you are not satisfied we offer a 7 day guarantee to replace or refund your New iPhone within the first 7 days of receiving it. Any hardware issues not caused by damage will be covered by our Techexchange warranty. Please note in some cases the serial number may not match the device and packaging but the IMEI number will be the same for insurance purposes.
