Our Grading Explained

Grade A+ – When we fully rebuild an iPhone into a new housing and use all new parts, we grade as an A+ (a plus). This is because the final cosmetic condition is like new. No marks or scratches, no dents or dings. Our Grade A+ devices are built for those that demand only the highest quality refurbished products.

Grade A – Almost as good as new, our Grade A iPhones may have some very light scratches or blemishes that may be difficult to see under normal light conditions. There may be signs of very light use on the front screen, side and rear housing which may also show some light wear. There may be some very light pitting on metal or plastic housings. The screen will be in excellent condition, with no marks or scratches that deter from the overall viewing experience.

Grade B – Showing signs of day-to-day usage, our Grade B iPhones are still fully functional devices but will show signs of moderate usage. There may be some moderate marks or scratches on the front glass digitiser but nothing deep enough to detract from the display viewing. There will be no chips or heavy scuffs to the glass. There may be some moderate scratches or scuffs on the side and rear housing which may include some light paint loss, moderate pitting, one or two very small, light dents. Grade B iPhones are for those that are not too particular with the overall cosmetic condition and if a case was fitted, you wouldn’t notice it was a Grade B.

Grade C – For those that don’t mind a battle scar or two, or for those that regularly throw their iPhones in a handbag or draw when not in use. Our Grade C devices are fully functional, albeit with heavier signs of use and wear but will not have any damaged glass or screens, any missing parts or cracks in the housings. Our Grade C iPhones may have heavier scratches to the front glass screen and housing and may have a few more dents or dings but nothing too serious! A well used but lovingly refurbished by us, ready for a few more years of battle!

Grade F – Very rarely do we see a Grade F device here. If we find a minor fault with an iPhone, for example, the Touch ID function is no longer working, we would deem this a Grade F. Each Grade F device is cosmetically different and we include an accurate description of the fault and cosmetic condition in the product description. We still warranty or Grade F devices, obviously not for the fault as sold, but you still have some peace of mind! All our Grade F iPhones are put through the same paces to ensure a refurbished product that will still give years of service.
