Best cheap temporary phone with resell value

14
Posted 26th Feb
I need to send off my phone for repair so need a temporary phone for 3 weeks.
Ideally I'd borrow one/use an old one but no one seems to have any at the moment and I annoyingly had a clear out / traded in a few at CEX before xmas.

So what would be the best cheap/used phone to buy that I can sell on when I'm done with it without losing too much in the process.
Ideally it should be fairly usable in the meantime. i.e smartphone - preferably android.

Cheers

Well done, your parents taught you well in the morals department. The corporations only pass the cost on to the consumer so everyone loses..
Buy a phone from the Amazon warehouse.

Return it for some made up reason after 3 weeks.

Inclined to agree in regards to resale value. iPhone SE available pretty cheap and will probably sell easily etc.

Inventing a fault isn't really fair on Amazon, You also risk them banning your account if you make too many returns etc..

Any phone can be good value if you buy at a good price.
A cheaper phone reduces the maximum loss potential.

Buy something like this click. It will come tomorrow if you buy it today.

Then in 3 weeks time sell it on ebay for £75 using their £1 FVF offer click.

I agree with the above but probably not best to pick Amazon depending on how often you return.
There's plenty of basic, used smartphones on ebay for £15 to £20 BIN, you'd lose a lot more than that on any new phone if you sold it after 3 weeks.
iPhone se
Xiaomi keep there value very well on ebay, especially if you get a deal
Thanks everyone. I'll take a look at these phones and suggestions. Cheers
