£107.99 for a Good condition 16GB model is pretty good imo. Not going to be fore everyone, and for concerns about battery you can get them changed via Apple for £25, if I remember correctly.

12 months warranty as well, so should be good to go. Maybe ideal for those wanting to try an Apple phone as a change, to see how they'd get on? It can be a bit odd going from one OS to another.

The 64GB model is £127.99 if that's any interest (same code)

Ordered two this week, both described as 'good'

Iphone 7 was battered, screen scratched and back outrageously dented.

Iphone 6S Plus in fantastic condition, would pass for new.

From my experience there is little consistency to their grading and it is very much pot luck.

How bad are 'good' quality phones?
Don't need it but very tempting
Does their good is actually good and do these phones are quite slow to operate and have battery issues ?
Received mine today- dead as a dodo and been plugged in for hours

No good sent my 6s plus back! Dent in the back screen scratches poor for a good refurbished phone!

that's the reason why I don't buy a refurbished anything. I remember a dearly loved relative of mine bought a brand new "Graded" cooker that was £90 cheaper it covered by the manufacturer warranty but to be honest it was the biggest pile of junk ever!
Also, they've had the 6s for about £10-20 more. Honestly, if you want to use the phone for a while you would be mad to pass up on the 6s over the 6 for the sake of a relatively small amount more money. The better camera, faster CPU, double the RAM (the big one) and 3D Touch help for longevity, even Apple can only work so much magic with 1GB RAM - also, the 6s had most of the annoying faults ironed out that the 6 had/has (like being really easy to bend).
BendGate. Too slow. Avoid

I would not recommend buying "refurbished" phones from musicmagpie. "Used" DVD box set is okay

That was exciting
Wish people would stop mindlessly chasing heat and promoting these cowboys. Is it really necessary to post every phone they sell? They are an absolutely terrible company.

I work as an IT refurbisher. If the job is done properly and you have a 12 months warranty there's nothing to worry about. It's not easy to refurbish tablets and phones properly, you don't always just give them a data wipe and clean over there's a lot more involved with many of the items.

In your opinion what do Music Magpie do to ‘refurbish’ used iPhones then?

I think most would agree they don’t actually do anything other then resell as is. It just wouldn’t make financial sense to replace components on used iPhones selling at these prices.

By the way I have sold a phone to Music Magpie in the past. Never again. They tried the familiar tactic of claiming issues with the phone once in possession, slashing the offer price to peanuts.

A long messy fight ensued but I got it resolved in the end.

Good is the lowest quality they sell,one step up from it being pulled apart for spares so don’t expect much.

Different refurbishers take on different refurbishing jobs, that's all I'm prepared to say. which is no sleight on MM or any other refurbisher. It depends on your business model which is the most effective process for you.

I got a "good" galaxy s8+ the other day. With the 20% was reduced from 450 to around 350. In arctic silver. Wasn't holding out much hope, came with original box (not original charger), basically two micro scratches to a corner of the screen you can't see and that's it. Immaculate everywhere else. Sounds like it's complete pot luck really. I would have called the phone close to Grade A
I bought an apple watch 3 with gps and cellular last week for £250 from them, Saved £150 off the new price also came with a better leather strap, listed as grade B, but would say its grade A as it looks like new. Still has 5 months Apple warranty as its only 7 months old. Only thing I had to do was a factory reset as it wouldn't pair to my phone. Would buy from them again, they offer a no quibble returns policy, although the distance selling law means they have to anyway. If you don't like it, return it.

What is the latest iOS??
Mine is on 11.3

Im not great with apple things tho, I just assume this is the latest? On mine, under battery it has ‘battery health (beta)’ that’s where I find the capacity. My phone is unlocked if that makes a diff

"Few tiny marks on the screen" is hardly as good as new


I had to look really close for them, as did others who I showed. I really expected crap condition and having to send it back.
my daughter bought ‘pristine’ and I can’t tell the difference other than hers came in an original box
I had two when they were £98 each. One is in as new condition, other has a few scuffs and both running absolutely fine. I got them knowing I’d send them back if they were pants but happy to keep them.
Have been looking at Apple's iOS support trends at work recently. Looks very likely that the 6 will be dropped off support when iOS 12 comes out.
yeah mine came battered and a mess.
Bought a good condition IPad from them, it came boxed with a brand new original charger and cable, and the iPad didn’t have a single mark on it. Very pleased for what I paid for it.

Most legit phone ‘refurbishers’ don’t actually refurbish anything and that’s just as well because the majority of third party phone parts are utter junk. MM just get in it, test it (in theory), grade it and ship it out. Stack em high and sell em low, it’s a volume play and it’s ruining the industry to be honest.

Fishmaster’s IT refurbishing, is (I would imagine) a proper process where they do replace, test and refurbish as PCs are much more modular and ideal for replacing bad or failing parts.

Music Magpie do have some particularly bad practices for both sides of their business and I’m surprised there hasn’t been a complaint about the anti-competitive monopoly they are creating.

The battery health indicator means nothing. It’s about as accurate as my golf swing.
I would say I’ve changed maybe 100 SE/6/6S variant batteries since iOS 11. All had over 80% , most around 90 mark. However they all had issues of switching off even when showing battery life remains . Would then say connect to charge , plug it in and low and behold, they boot back up to a different percentage . So those batteries were certainly well past it. Apple are just pulling the wool over our eyes with it yet again
Is there a way I can stop music magpie deals showing up on my feed?
And how long is operating system support going to last?

You can buy a brand new Moto G5 for similar money, 2 year warranty from John Lewis
Amazing
I bought a refurb from giffgaff although not same retailer but buying experience would probably be the same. Most of these are not original apply screen, they bought them for cheap and fixed the screen themselves. How I know this is when I used mine I noticed the accuracy wasn’t correct when I tap with my finger. Most websites it’s okay but for games (empire war z) it was very noticeable. The home button isn’t smooth and the screen freezes now and then. I wouldn’t recommend
