If you think back a few years, you'll remember Envirophone as the company that buys your old smart phones. Well now they've evolved into selling second hand smart phones.

Getting a second hand smartphone was never something I considered because I'm kind of a snob like that. However when I saw the advert I was a bit vulnerable as yet another LG G5 I owned had over heated and damaged it's self. You might go as far as saying the advert was a sign! 

I went on the website for a bit of banter and ended up finding a 64gb iPhone SE, locked to EE in space grey for £100 less then the marked price.
Once I realised that the phone I was using was infact a second hand refurbishment from the insurance company (and me having no will power when it comes to spending money) I ordered the iPhone. 
Plus iPhone SE's have always had a special place in my heart because they're small and powerful (like me)!
The checkout process was simple, just like ordering something off of amazon.
There was even an option to pay using PayPal and if you know me, you'll know how much I love to use PayPal!

The phone came the next day through the Royal Mail and it's bloody brilliant.
I got an 'excellent condition' phone and it really is; not even a scratch on it.
In the box comes the phone, USB cable (no plug), a sim ejector tool (can never have too many of those) and a pair of earphones - not ear pods but I can't complain.

I want to write more on the experience but there's nothing else to say. It was a quick, simple transaction. I'm a very happy hobbit writing this post on my new iPhone.

I'd highly recommend buying from Envirophone, especially if you're on a budget!

This is not an ad, I just really wanted a new phone and had a great experience with Envirophone

Ps - If your buying from Envirophone, remember to check that the sim matches the same network to the one the phone is locked at.

Have you had any experiences with second hand phones?
