Important Consideration When Buying A Used iPhone

iPhones do not usually go on sale, and they aren’t cheap either. This is why many Apple fans may invest in a used one.

Try buying a used iPhone from someone you know, like a relative or a friend. You’ll have a better idea about its usage. Be careful while buying a used or refurbished phone from unknown sellers.

 Here are certain important considerations when purchasing:

 

The right carrier

All iPhones after iPhone 5 generally work on all networks, but there are certain differences. The AT&T network utilizes an extra LTE signal, which many others do not, which provides faster speed and performance in certain areas.

So if you get an iPhone that was designed for Verizon and use AT&T network, you may not be able to utilize that extra fast speed.

Inquire about the iPhone’s model from the seller; it will be something like A1633, A1634, A1688 and so on. Search about the model number to know the specifications and see if it is well-suited for your carrier.

 

Ensure that the iPhone isn’t stolen

Before you make the payment, you will need to make sure that the phone isn’t stolen. Apple provides an Activation Lock status tool which prevents new users from activating the phone. Get the IMEI number of the iPhone and check the phone’s status. If the seller is legit, he/she will not have any problem handing over the information.

 

Carrier Lock

You will also need to call your carrier company and give them the IMEI number of the phone to ensure that the phone isn’t carrier locked. You carrier company will be able to guide you accordingly and prevent any problem from arising.

 

Condition

Once everything is in order, it all comes down to the condition of the phone.

Ask the seller when it was purchased and when its warranty ran out. Also ask about any repairs that were performed on the phone, as it can make a big difference on the hardware. Minor scratches on the body and screen are fine, but there shouldn’t be any cracks.

If the phone is more than a year old, the battery can cause a lot of problems. Ask the seller whether they are considering changing the battery before selling; otherwise you will have to do it yourself. In this case, you should ask for concessions.

Conduct a thorough check on the screen to ensure that there are no dead pixels and that all sensors are working appropriately.

The SIM card slot has a water damage indicator inside which can tell you if the iPhone has ever been dropped in water. Make sure to check that too.

 

Selling your old phone

You may now be planning to sell your old phone and wondering how you can get a good bargain on it. The best way to get a good price is to change its screen and battery. A manufacturer’s warranty on those replaced parts will increase the price of your phone even further.

5 Benefits Of Buying Phone Accessories Online

You go to a retail store and ask for mobile covers for your Galaxy S8. The retailer shows you 3 or 4 covers; plain, simple and dull. You pick the one that looks just right.

Several days later, you come across an online store that has a vast collection of Samsung phone covers, with more colors and designs, like created by someone with ‘imagination’. And guess what; at much lower prices!

How many times has this happened?

Why go to a store, when you can buy all the accessories at home, cheaper and better?

Here are some benefits of shopping online for wholesale cellphone parts accessories:

Lower prices

Generally, online stores have lower prices than retail prices. This is because online stores appeal to a greater audience and look to make profit by selling more volume. To sell more volume, they usually lower their prices or offer discounts.

Retail stores, on the other hand, do not have the same audience or reach as an online store. They have to maintain a certain amount of profit margin in the concentrated market. Retail stores also have higher overhead cost, which unfortunately, gets passed on to customers.

Greater variety

Online stores have multiple suppliers from all over the country, and in some cases, all over the globe. This means that there will be a greater variety of products available on the online store. You can have a mobile phone cover in any color, design or print; whereas, retail stores only keep accessories that sell like hot cakes, otherwise it is just a waste of space.

Smarter Buying Decision

Online shopping is always a smarter way to shop. You get to compare prices from different stores. You also have access to customer reviews in most cases that allows you to make better decisions, based on first-hand reviews of people who actually used these products.

Comfort

Who wants to go shopping for mobile phone accessories, when you can get better deals online? You can order all kinds of phone accessories comfortably from home.

Some Tips to Protect Your Android Touch Screens

Android is an operating system designed by Google for smartphone and tablet devices. With heaps of Android-enabled devices, the OS is continuously enhancing its market share.  

The success of any Smartphone lies in its touch. The touch screen of the device has to be perfect.

With Corning Gorilla Glass, Smartphones today have some of the most robust and sturdiest touch screens.

However, being the most used area, the touch screen can get damaged. Here are some ways you can protect your Android touch screens:

Use the Calibration Tool

 

From Apple to Samsung, all big brands offer a calibration tool for phones that require touch. When you feel that the responsiveness of your touch screen has deteriorated in quality, you can calibrate it.

Make sure you are clearly following the manufacturers’ guidelines. Once you do that, you will surely experience an improvement in touch quality.

Be Gentle with the Touch

 

This is pretty obvious. Whether you are in a hurry or are angry at something (completely unrelated to the phone), make sure you are not tapping the device harder than you should.

Also, keep it away from sharp objects and prevent it from falling.

 

Be Careful When Downloading Apps

 

With Android platform offering millions of apps, you might get over-excited. However, make sure that you are only downloading credible apps. You can do that by taking a look at ratings and reading reviews.

Apps with malware can infiltrate your system and can compromise the sensitivity of the touch. If you accidentally have downloaded any such app, terminate all other operations and uninstall it immediately.

Use a Screen Guard

 

A screen guard or protector is applied at the top of the screen. It minimizes the blows that your phone receives. However, you do not want to choose a protector that is too thick, as it would affect your touch experience.

 

Keep it Away from the Sun

 

Exposure to sunlight might be good for your skin, but it’s not healthy for your phone’s touch screen.

Make sure you do not let the display get exposed to sunlight.

 

Do not leave it Idle for Too Long

 

For effective performance of your touch screen, you should use it regularly. If the screen stays idle for too long, it can lead to ‘burn-in’.

One good way to stop burn-in from happening is to choose the lock screen option from the Settings menu. Set the time to lock the screen when it’s not used for a specific period of time.
