Where to Buy Unlocked Android Phones

The battle between Android phones and iOS phones will probably never cease. Some people simply prefer one over the other and that is ok, too. After all, the world would be boring without some basic diversity and choice options. So, if we assume for a minute that you are on the side of the Androids, where can you go to buy unlocked Android phones? There are actually a number of possibilities out there and finding the right one for you really depends on your own needs and desires. Let’s take a look at some of the options.

Using Online Bidding Sites

Your first option is to use an online bidding site to find an unlocked Android. There are a number of pros and cons to this option. Firstly, there is a chance that you can get your hands on a really good phone for very little money. Of course, the chance is slim since you will be bidding against a range of other people, but sometimes you do strike it lucky. There is a downside as well, however. The biggest issue is that you don’t really know what condition the device is going to be in. Someone will generally post a photograph, but you don’t really know whether their description is correct until you have paid for the item and received it. Although you do have buyer protection, you will find that the hassle of returning the device and getting your money back is more than you had bargained for.

Speak to Family Members and Friends

People are always upgrading their phones, which means that it is likely that you know somebody who is getting rid of their old phone and getting their hands on a new one. Very often, these phones are also unlocked. Hence, you could ask whether they would be willing to sell their old phone on to you and since they are people you know, they may just give you a good deal. Indeed, they may even pass it on to your for free. The main downside is that you will always have an older model this way, rather than the latest thing.

Going to Dedicated Stores

There are also a number of dedicated stores that sell unlocked Android phones. Some of these stores are available online, others operate on the high street and can simply be visited at your convenience. There are a number of clear benefits to this option. The first is that the selection of phones available to you will be massive. Secondly, they will store both new and old models. Furthermore, all phones will be checked for quality and functionality and there will be an honest description of this. Hence, if your phone is not in the best condition, you will know about it before you buy it. The downside is that these phones tend to be slightly more expensive than what they would be anywhere else. This is because they have to be checked and tested and possibly repaired, and the shop also has to run a profit.
