Hello to all readers of techfreetricks.com! Today we will share its experience and give advice on buying used iPhone.
So, where do we start buying the phone or used iPhone? Of course, with the choice of a suitable advertisement. At once we will tell that it is not necessary to consider announcements. In which the price for the phone is much lower than the market. In the end, you will be told either to pay the whole phone before sending it. Or you will spend a lot of time waiting for the “seller” on some outskirts. Pay attention to ads in which the price is not too high. Ask for links to social networks of a person to be sure. That this is not a momentary sale of a not quite serviceable device.
Usually, all phones go at one price and differ by 1-3 thousand rubles depending on the model and condition. Also, decide whether you need a complete set, the cost depends on it. Pay attention to the battery level of the device.
Next, when examining the phone, you need to pay attention to IMEI. Whether the number of the body (the SIM card tray) converges. With the number in the settings (and on the box, if it is). To check, you can type * # 06 #.
The bolts at the bottom (so that the corners were not “lapped”) is the first sign. That the phone was not under repair. Note that it is still difficult to determine, and it is not worth much counting on such a trick.
Pay attention to the camera glass. If you see that under it the dust, most likely, the apparatus was understood.
Further, the case: its geometry should not be broken. How to check? Take the telephone in your grasp and take a gander at it as an objective for shooting. The deviations will be seen promptly (particularly on the Used iPhone 6 and Used iPhone 6 Plus). Also, strong dents on the corners or behind are harbingers of problems, perhaps serious ones, inside the phone.
Then comes the display, carefully inspect the top of the display module. The glass should fit snugly against the top of the housing. If it is taped off, it means the case is deformed, or the display is of poor quality. The display itself: the colors should be saturated. The response is ideal (pinch any icon. And drag it across the entire screen area. If the label lasted until the end. Problems are most likely not), look at the state of the oleophobic coating.
Another important feature that is difficult to see. Especially visible on black displays: look a little at an angle to the screen, compare. How much the color of the canceled display differs from the frame. If the difference is uncritical. All is well. If the display gives out strongly in gray – this is a sign of the non-original display. On Used iPhone 6, 6s, 7, slide your finger along the edge of the display and go into the case. The transition should not be felt much, the body is almost monolithic. If not – before you the next copy.
Next, we check the fingerprint reader’s Touch ID, if it is present. All buttons, headphone jack. We call 112, thus we check the speaker (auditory, main). Hold a hand over the ear speaker. Check the proximity sensor. Check how the camera. Flash. Recorder works. Be sure to check the compass. Siri (it has its own microphone). Navigator. LTE. We do not even talk about the iCloud account.
The operating time is indicated in the “Settings” – “Battery”, but be aware that the time can be increased due to periodic charging, not reaching up to 100%, and also corrected by the time in the settings.
By the way, there is still a secret reception! We go in Settings – Confidentiality – Diagnostics and Usage – Data and get into the well of errors of this device. Of course, if you do not understand this, it will be difficult to understand, so just take a look at the records and pay attention to the inscriptions PANIC. CRASH. And all the similar “bad words”. If any, we recommend that you continue to inspect the device in the service center.
Now we look at the charge and remember how much was at the very beginning, you remembered. Well, you figure out how much time you spent on the examination of the patient. And also when you compose an easy proportion, you know if the battery is still alive.
After checking, you make conclusions, whether you need this device or not. Determine the price and get the perfect one for yourself. Also, I want to say that we are always ready to conduct. A full diagnostics of the device within the walls of our service. Because without revealing many things you will not notice. Was it flooded? Traces of soldering? Changed something? Is the machine repaired? What is completely correct, that we advise you to change. Well. Everything-everything about the life of the device as a whole.
