You might be unsure of how you can obtain another iPhone to replace your old one because brand new iPhones are at rocket-high prices.
Nonetheless, you still stand a chance of getting another iPhone with its useful benefits – without the sky-high prices of a brand new iPhone.
Consider what you really need in an iPhone before rushing to get the latest iPhone model. Instead, think about getting a used or refurbished iPhone at a greatly discounted price.
Consider getting a refurbished or secondhand iPhone with no bloatware and enhanced battery life without bursting your wallet.
Consider getting a user-friendly secondhand iPhone with the latter’s improved IOS and tailored widgets – at a competitive price.
Do A Reality Check On Your iPhone Needs
If you are still tempted to rush to get a brand new iPhone, do a reality check on your needs and wants.
You should assess if spending a bomb to chase the latest iPhone is really the way to go.
If you are not a shutterbug or a professional photographer, you might not necessarily need the iPhone 11 with a 120-degree field of view for you to take wide-ranging photographs without crooked edges.
Rather, you might opt for the iPhone XS with just a 12-megapixel telephoto lens – good enough to produce photos during your casual Instagram moments.
After properly assessing your needs, read the following sections detailing where you can buy a used iPhone and even sell your existing one to save money and get the most value out of your transaction.
Brick-And-Mortar Phone Stores
One of the most instinctual things you might do when buying a new or used phone is to head to your nearest mobile phone store near your HDB neighbourhood or in the city center to browse the phone range in the store.
Having said that, such brick-and-mortar stores usually do not enjoy a wide range of phone models for you to take your pick from.
Moreover, many of the mobile phones at these stores are not priced at the most competitive prices.
Without a proper benchmark for price comparison, you will likely lose out in terms of hard-earned money when you pay more than what you should be paying for a used iPhone.
Some of these brick-and-mortar stores might not be entirely honest with you regarding existing defects on their used phones.
Without a reasonable warranty time frame, you as the customer will stand to lose out should your newly obtained iPhone exhibit signs of weak battery life and the like.
Consquently, you would have to incur additional costs to repair and inspect the phone after purchase.
Furthermore, should you want to sell your existing iPhone with its screen scratches and dubious battery life, you might not be able to do so at many of these mobile phone stores as many of them accept phones in good condition.
To many buyers and sellers of mobile phones, conducting buy-sell transactions on peer-to-peer marketplaces like eBay, Craigslist or Carousell might seem to be the next best option to have.
However, peer-to-peer marketplace transactions are not as clear-cut and smooth-sailing as others might portray them to be.
If you hope to buy an iPhone on a marketplace like Carousell, you might have to invest a great deal of time and effort to write to various potential sellers to obtain your desired phone at your desired price point.
On such marketplaces with limited or no security checks, you run the danger of having the seller disappear into thin air without handing over their phone to you even after you have paid him or her for the phone.
There is the danger that the iPhone you might be buying might have been previously stolen. If you remain unknowing and purchase such a stolen phone, you would end up on the wrong side of the law.
Hence, you might have to face the tiresome task of filing a police report in addition to losing your money for no good reason at all.
On the other hand, if you aim to be a phone seller on such marketplaces, you might waste a lot of time waiting for a suitable and willing buyer to purchase your pre-loved iPhone at a desired price point.
As the value of your phone depreciates day-by-day, waiting for the perfect buyer to come along would be an unproductive waste of time.
If you are one of those busy professionals or students with not much time to arrange a meeting to collect your phone or to hand your pre-loved phone to a buyer, you would have to pay additional costs to obtain your purchased used phone or have your existing phone delivered to the buyer.
You would have to spend a lot of time combing through Internet reviews before arriving at a seller or buyer whom you can consider trustworthy.
