Our speciality is phones, it’s literally in the name! We offer a variety of smartphones from multiple brands like Apple, Samsung, Sony and more. Maybe you are considering upgrading to the new iPhone 15 released by Apple this year. Or perhaps you are thinking of switching to Samsung? Maybe you even want to give Huawei a try? Either way, we have the best smartphone 2024 could want waiting for you.

Refurbished iPhone 

When it comes to Apple, we have stacks of iPhones from the latest iPhone 15 to the classic iPhone 6 Plus. Thinking about saving your cash for the new year? The Apple iPhone XR is a great iPhone budget option along with the iPhone SE 2022. Or maybe 2024 is your year to improve your photography skills or join a new photography club? The iPhone 14 Pro Max is a great choice with dual LED tone flash and a wide and telephoto camera lens.

Refurbished Samsung 

On the other hand, our Samsung devices are also very popular. Why not get the Samsung S23 Ultra before the S24 comes out early next year? The flip phone has made a huge comeback recently, why not get in with the trend and check out the Galaxy Z Fold 4 or Galaxy Z Flip 4? And again, we have budget options perfect for saving money, the 2015 Samsung Galaxy J5 can last for 18 hours without charging and has a 13MP camera!

Refurbished Huawei

Huawei phones are great when it comes to cameras, with crystal clear photography and stunning visuals, this is the perfect smartphone for staying ahead of the competition. The Huawei P30 Pro offers a 6.47” screen and both single SIM and Hybrid Dual SIM, the Huawei Honor 8 has the same amazing camera quality, just with a smaller screen size and price! And of course, we have plenty of Huawei phones under £100, check out the Huawei P Smart and Huawei P8 Lite.

The iPad Pro 11 2020 is also very popular, with a triple camera where the images can be viewed on the device's 11” screen. Not an Apple fan? The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus is strong, and available in a multitude of colours like Black, Brown and Silver. The Lenovo Tab M10 Plus also comes in a great selection of colours like Grey and Bue.


As we previously mentioned, your New Year's Resolution may be to improve your productivity. And whether that’s in the classroom or the office you can’t boost your productivity without a trusted laptop.
