Faced with the multiplication of references and the constant increase in prices, more and more people are moving towards the purchase of used smartphones. They can obviously turn to companies specializing in reconditioning (Backmarket, Smaaart, Rebuy etc.) or try to find their happiness on classified ads sites.

There is no shortage of these, even if Ebay and Leboncoin are at the top of the consultations. Going through an individual often allows you to negotiate, and thus obtain a used, even new, more affordable device. Note also that this choice can be part of a more ecological approach, which consists in not consuming new, especially when tens of millions of smartphones still sleep in the drawers of our neighbors. Today we give you some tips and reminders so that your transaction goes as best as possible, whether you are a buyer or seller.

If you are a seller:

It’s a thing to know how to buy well, it’s another one to know how to sell well. The smartphone being an object that costs several hundred euros, most of a good sale will be reassured potential buyers as to its provenance and its use.

Evidence of purchase

Classified ads platforms represent a special place for stolen objects. They allow you to sell the goods quickly and require liquid. Thus, to reassure potential buyers, it is always interesting to provide the original box of the smartphone, but also its user manual, charger and invoice – if you had not received the device as a gift.

Although it is always possible to get one in a fraudulent manner, it always reassures the origin of the smartphone. It can even give you the right to a guarantee, provided that this last run always. In 2017, the Kantar Institute had deduced that the average duration of use of a smartphone in France was 22 months. These data are certainly subject to change, but the guarantees of two or three years are not uncommon.

Delete your account and reset the smartphone

Even if the photos of your last vacation will probably not interest your customer, it is imperative to put your smartphone back to zero. Obviously, it will not be here to delete your photos and close your Gmail session. So remember to copy your important files on the cloud or on a storage system. Above all, you must reset your device and restore it the factory configuration.

Nb : If you have lent a smartphone and you are not sure you are disconnected from your Google account, know that it is possible to do it remotely from another smartphone or PC. To do this, open Gmail. In the lower right corner, click Details and click on “Disconnect from all other web sessions”.

Here is the procedure on Android:

The approach varies slightly according to the overlap of the manufacturers. In any case, you will need to go to the settings tab and find the submenu “Save and restore” Or “Save and reset”. The latter is often in the menu “Other parameters”, ” Advanced settings “ or “About the phone”.
