The iPhone still seems to be the prima donna for some smartphone users in Indonesia and it’s not uncommon for people to hunt for a second-hand iPhone.
iPhone is famous for smartphones with expensive prices. As stated in the iBox market place, for example like the iPhone 12 Pro Max, the price is still around Rp. 20 million.
No wonder there are people who hunt iPhone in a second or used condition. The reason is none other than getting it at a cheaper price.
It’s true, as seen in other marketplaces, the price of a second iPhone is much cheaper than buying it in new condition. For example, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is in a second condition for around Rp. 15 million, saving Rp. 5 million as stated on the official iBox marketplace.
You also need to know that there are definitely drawbacks if you are going to buy a smartphone in a used condition. Things that may occur such as interference, damage, or decreased performance.
Therefore, it is important to check the condition from the outside to the system inside so as not to feel lost in the future.
You have to make sure the IMEI in the sim card slot is with the IMEI in the settings, and make sure the numbers listed are the same. While still in the settings menu, also check whether the iPhone you have selected has changed spare parts or not.
Then check whether the touchscreen is working properly or something can’t be pressed. After that, try updating the latest software to avoid blocked signals after the update.
Don’t forget to test all cameras too. And also check if the microphone is working properly or not, so that the top and bottom speakers can also be heard to make sure it’s running well. For the iPhone series with a glass back, check whether the wireless charging function is working.
Don’t miss the test charge using a regular cable and make sure the battery goes up normally.
Also make sure to check the proximity sensor when calling, the screen is off or on. Face id, make sure it’s also working normally.
And finally, make sure all the buttons are still functioning when pressed. Maybe that’s the summary from Selular.ID to help you not choose the wrong iPhone in a second state.
