    Overall, Great Phone but Some Features Don't Work

    As stated, overall I'm happy with my purchase of this phone but something that is extremely irritating is that it must have been a phone previously used or made to be used in a country (such as China and Japan) that does not allow the shutter sound on the camera to be muted. This means that no matter what I do it always makes a loud noise whenever I take a photo, screenshot, or snapchat. It seems trivial but one of the reasons I bought this phone was for the camera quality and I am now annoyed each time I use it. So be aware that you could be sold a phone not originally intended for use in America and it can come with these issues. That said, it was in great condition, has a great battery life, and everything else I wanted out of a phone.

    Battery was bad

    The phone would not hold a charge for longer than an hour and would go from 35% right down to zero, shut off and then when plugging the phone back in to charge, would go right back up to 35%. It seemed like their were more than one sticker, which indicates to me that this was returned for the same reason and sold again. To me it seems like there should be just a little bit of quality control and if something is returned as defective, it probably shouldn't be resold.

    I purchased this iPhone last week as a gift for my daughter. I have had the phone for exactly one week and it has stopped working. It started out with the battery dying quickly. Then, text messages would not go through. Yesterday, the phone died. My daughter charged it and noticed after an hour the battery was still dead. I tried charging it and nothing. I can’t even get the phone to turn on. I will be returning it to the store and getting a refund!

    Refurbished phones

    The cell phones I bought were for my 16 year old twins. Ready to drive I felt it was time to get them each one. The phones arrived in generic packaging but there are almost no scratches on them, no dents no blemishes. I purchased otter boxes to ensure they stay that way and then got sim cards from our local Verizon store. So far the phones work fine. One phone does have some residual memory of its previous owners location but other than that my boys are thrilled. I know buying refurbished is risky but when you have two to buy it was the best way to go.

    Our tween daughter needed a new phone, and she decided that she wanted an iPhone 5s instead of getting a newer Android phone. Admittedly, I was a bit concerned after reading so many reviews in which people complained about scratches and other defects on their phone. However, when our phone arrived a few days after I purchased it, it was in excellent condition! We had absolutely no issues getting it activated with T-Mobile, and our daughter is extremely happy with the purchase. FYI: Our phone came in a generic box with an off-brand charger.

    Amazing for the price

    I ordered this because I needed a new phone. In the description, it did say that there were some minor cosmetic damages. When the phone arrived, (on time), there was a small gouge near the power button. But, the power button worked perfectly. There was nothing else wrong with the phone's appearance and everything seems to be working great. The only issue is that the battery does run out kind of quickly even if I'm not using it. But overall, I am very happy that I bought this phone and I am definitely happy about the price.

    So they wanna say this phone was "pre-owned", do they? It's so much more scratched up than I would call "pre-owned". USED is more like the way I'd rate it. Even the rear-facing camera lens has several tiny scratches, scrapes, whatever-ya-wanna-call-them. The screen is pristine, but I do expect BOTH camera lenses to be pristine as well. I'm gonna have to have the rear camera lens replaced when I can afford to. I just know I can't afford a $1,400+ brand-new latest iPhone because I barely make $15,000 a year.

    Brought this phone for my son. Realizing it was an older model refurbished phone, I did expect a little more since it was an IPhone. We just needed something to be able to stay in touch with our son for after school activities. It worked well for a few months. Issues started with the screen just after the warranty expired. I ended up purchasing another phone. This iPhone was truly disposable. I would not purchase another refurbished phone again.
