Today, tech enthusiasts and regular users alike want to use phones with cutting-edge features. However, pricing can often be a constraint for buying the latest phone. So how can you plan for your next phone with the best features?

Refurbished phones allow you to enjoy the latest smartphones at reduced prices. Thus, they make for a very valuable deal. We recently got our hands on two models of the Asus Zenfone 5Z – a refurbished (superb) one from 2GUD and a new one. The price of a new model of this phone is Rs.27, 999 while that of a refurbished one is Rs.21,999.

You can take a look at the video below that shows how the refurbished model was just like a new one.

Refurbished phones include devices that are returned to the manufacturer as they remain unsold as well as pre-owned phones that go through extensive repairs and quality checks. Ultimately, you end up paying a lot less for refurbished models that are just like new.

It’s important to note the difference between refurbished electronic goods and used goods that are available locally. Refurbished goods are a better choice than used goods for a number of reasons.

  • Quality: Refurbished goods go through extensive quality checks before they are sold and any deficiencies are promptly fixed. For instance, phones sold on 2GUD go through 47-step quality checks before they are listed on the platform. Thus, you can be assured of quality when you buy.

2) Warranty: Usually, used phones do not come with a warranty. Thus, your purchase becomes a risky one. Products on 2GUD come with a warranty period that ranges from 3 months to 12 months

3) Service: It can be really difficult to figure out post-sales service for second-hand products. However, 2GUD has dedicated customer support to help you with any issues that might crop up.  The site also has a 10-day return policy.

Our recent video talks about the benefits in detail. You can watch it below.


When you go for a second-hand phone, the quality of the product can differ a lot and it won’t always be apparent to you. On 2GUD, refurbished products are classified into 5 grades – refurbished – like new, superb, very good, good and okay as per their condition. Thus, you know exactly what the product will look and feel like.

If you are looking to buy a new phone, be sure check out 2GUD for refurbished mobile phones and other electronic products.
