Why Buying A Secondhand Smartphone Is A Smart Idea
Smartphones are in nearly every pocket and with new models being released all the time, you might be thinking: “What happens to the old ones?” They often end up in landfill, where they take hundreds of years to decompose, or sit in drawers where they gather dust.
At Doji, we believe that Smartphones should be reused and recycled whenever possible. Here are our top 5 reasons why buying a secondhand smartphone is a smart idea:
1. It saves you money
Smartphones can be expensive, especially when you buy them brand new. Buying a used smartphone instead can save you a lot of money, especially if your whole household wants a new one!
2. It helps the environment
Smartphones contain harmful materials that can escape into the environment if not disposed of properly. By buying a used smartphone, you’re helping to keep these materials out of landfills – and giving a used item a second life!
3. You can trust Doji
When you buy a used smartphone from Doji, you know that the phone has been thoroughly tested and is backed by a 12-month warranty. You’re guaranteed to get a quality product, with upfront information on the condition of the phone – unlike other auction sites we verify and check the quality of all items we send.
4. You pay a fair price
The price you pay is between you and the seller: it’s up to you what you’re willing to pay and up to the seller what they’re willing to accept. We only charge for our handling and shipping of the phone, but that’s far less than you’d expect to pay on other sites!
5. You're not tied in to a contract
Smartphones are constantly evolving, with new features and models being released all the time. We’ve created a circular economy, meaning when you’re done with your phone – you can pop it back up on site and find another model to love!
If you’re considering upgrading a phone or just fancy a new bit of tech, make sure you consider purchasing secondhand. Save the planet and your money with Doji.
