How to check a used mobile phone before buying it a full examination How to check a used mobile phone before buying it It is not difficult to buy a good used phone, especially after you have read this article.
Because the information we will provide you with is practical and simple. Basically, you have two places to buy a used phone. Either from a phone store (some companies do a barter as well) or someone you know has a phone they want to sell, and you intend to buy it. Either way, you should not be fooled by the brand or name of the phone or its capabilities written on its packaging. This is for an important reason, which is that a company such as Apple, maker of the iPhone series, recently admitted that some processors that were used up to the iPhone 6 generation do not work as well if they are used for several years. So don't let the numbers fool you. Because the actual performance of the used phone is impossible to be as efficient as a new phone. This happens with the "iPhone", which in the last three years has sold more than a billion phones around the world. Let alone other less efficient companies. Don't be in a hurry to choose a phone store
One of the best advice that I can give you is that you should not be in a hurry to choose a phone to check and buy. You have to look a lot at the shops to sell phones. And you choose more than one phone suitable for you and that matches the price category you want. After that comes the time to check the mobile phone technically in terms of performance and then in terms of the proper parts inside the phone. Do it with every device you choose and then make up your mind.
Examine the used phone
The first step in checking a mobile phone is to ensure the integrity of the outer body of the used phone. Especially in black phones. Because the broken black phone does not appear well most of the time. Also, make sure that the screen is intact and that there are no dark or burnt-out areas. There may be a scratch on the screen and you do not know whether this scratch is on the internal screen or the external screen. You must make sure that this scratch is external because it is easy to treat by changing the glass sticker. As for the internal scratch, you will not be able to address it except by changing the screen itself. And another important thing is the location of the shipment, as many do not pay attention to this point. The location of the charger is sometimes unstable, which makes charging difficult and damaging the battery. And if there are superficial scratches on the wall of the phone, you should know that they are not dangerous. The scratch is not broken. A scratch is a sign of friction, a break is a sign of falling. Checking the used mobile phone if it is original Image ID: 33088521 There is a kind of counterfeiting in all goods around the world. Some types of phones fall under the category of counterfeiting, or "High Copy". The problem with this type of phone is that it looks exactly like the real ones from the outside, but it differs completely in terms of the materials and capabilities of the real phone. The way to check the fake mobile phone in this way is by matching this phone with another phone of the same type through several notes: visibility of the operating system and operating speed. Image resolution, speed, performance, camera resolution. Also, the imitation phone does not have all the real features of the real phone. For example, if there is a fingerprint, you will find this phone has a place for a fingerprint, but it does not support it internally, it is only an external decoration for deception from the outside.
IMEI code on mobile phone check In most smartphones there is an IMEI code. It is a serial code for the device from the inside. Same as the external code that is on the back of the device. In order to see it, you can go to the device’s list of properties and choose (About). You will then find information about the device, but this information may be little. Therefore, you will find a number called IMEI. Copy this number, then go to the “IMEI.info” website, and enter the number, and then all the information you need about this device will appear to you. Another important point that you should know when checking the mobile phone by means of the IMEI code, is that as long as this number is found in the location and device data. Rest assured that this device is an original brand and registered with a serial number from the factory.
When examining the used mobile phone, it should be noted that the battery is not original and has been replaced. To be sure of this point, you must read the battery serial number from the back. The location of the battery in the phone will also find a serial number, and it must correspond to the battery number.
