One Plus 3 Announcment!
With a much anticipated wait, today the One Plus 3 is being announced! If you want to know all about the phone before the launch, you're in luck with all the details below.
With the One plus 2 coming to its flagship end it is still a great phone, with a stunning screen and a brilliantly low price it didn’t disappoint all that much. However there are plenty of things that could have been done better. OnePlus underwent a lot of criticism for losing NFC (main use; contactless payments facility) and it's hoped that will be sorted on the OnePlus Three.
Since the move to our new location we have more room to play with – 13,000 Square feet to be exact. Over the past year we have had many of our customers request a visit to our facility so they can view their handsets before purchasing them. We were simply unable to do so at the time due to the size restrictions at our previous address. But now we have relocated our idea of introducing the view and collection facility is well and truly on its way!
Since the birth of 4Gadgets back in March last year things have escalated quickly. From the quality of our gadgets to the consistency of our customer service we have worked onwards and upwards to fulfil our number one goal of becoming the best provider of pre-owned gadgets. It’s still very early days but thanks to our loyal customers and hardworking team here at 4Gadgets, we are proud to announce our move to a bigger and better future. With the move now complete apart from a few adjustments here and there, it’s safe to say we are back up and running as normal with so much to look forward too.
When customers get in touch in regards to a refurbished device we usually hear very common questions, the main one being ‘what exactly is a refurbished device?’
Here at 4Gadgets we pride ourselves on selling the best quality second hand phones, which is reflected in our reviews being top 3 in our category! We stock a variety of models being Apple, Blackberry, HTC, Huawei, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, and Sony. To ensure we live up to our slogan; ‘Quality Gadgets, Great Prices’, we take time to compare and confirm our prices so they are always the cheapest available.
Here at 4Gadgets we believe that buying a brand new phone in this day and age isn’t just expensive, it’s foolish! What you guys may be unaware of is that 95% of our stock comes from the original boxes that are sold to us as ‘used mobiles’ from larger companies. These handsets are only deemed as second hand or used because they have been returned by customers within 14 days as the original customer may have changed their mind. So what we are trying to say is that our devices might be titled as used or second hand but really the phones we sell are at highest quality of their grade and show the lowest signs of use that you can find on the market today… So why buy new when you can buy used!?
After weeks of teasing and publicity from HTC with the slogan 'power of 10', we saw the release of the new flagship phone arrive on April 12th this month..
With the recent release of Samsung's Galaxy S7 back in February it’s proven very popular. With a little patience and persistence, here at 4gadgets we are very pleased to announce that we are now stocking the S7 and S7 Edge models, in sleek Black Onyx and stunning Gold Platinum colours. The S7 itself may look pretty similar to its predecessor but once you see and hold the device for the first time you won’t want to put the phone down.
With the LG G5 release touching down in the states last week (April 1st), we will expect to see it launched in the UK this week (April 8th). The South Korean company will unveil their first ever modular handset, meaning you can upgrade it with accessories and it will still maintain its contemporary, premium all-metal feel and design. The LG G5 is launching two months earlier than its typical annual renewal cycle, and its price is cheaper than its rival flagship devices; Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge and iPhone. But will it be worth it? Let’s dig a bit deeper and see what the G5 has to offer.
Huawei P9: Release Date, Features and Rumours
“Change the way you see the world” is Huawei’s message to those invited to its dedicated London event on April 6, surprisingly opting out of announcing the P9 at Mobile World Congress. Huawei are expected to unveil their latest flagship phone named the Huawei P9, yet we don’t have confirmation on what the phone actually looks like, however that's not to say that the handset hasn't been the subject of any image leaks so far - there have, in fact, been many, and adding to the pile is a new set of leaked images.
New Apple releases:
Calling out to all phone fanatics, you will be pleased to hear that Apple have revealed their newest phone at the Apple Event on 21 March. Throughout the evening Apple introduced the all new iPhone SE as well as the new iPad 9.7-inch Pro and watch straps. The phone itself looks almost identical to the iPhone 5S that was released back in September 2013 – the only major difference is the amount of power packed into the small 4-inch handset.
PayPal Credit; Buy now, Pay later!
Here at 4Gadgets we give our customers different ways to pay for safe, swift and easy transactions that ultimately make it convenient for you the buyer. What you guys at home may not of realised is that PayPal Credit Payments are available on our site, giving you guys the option Buy now and pay later, spreading the cost to give you more control and flexibility.
How it works:
Here at 4Gadgets we are pleased to say we have a full re-stock coming this week and the phone will be available in Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum.
With the iPhone 7 coming this year, we are all anticipating bigger and better things. With rumours and predictions flying through the roof we've picked up lots of hints about new features that could appear in the iPhone 7 including; The removal of 3.5mm headphone jack, wireless charging, touchscreen with built-in Touch ID, plus news on Apple producing an 'unhackable' iPhone, after its run-in with the FBI.
With the release of the new phone in Samsung's Galaxy S line coming on 11th march we are as excited as you are! The phone itself looks pretty similar to previous models however the S7 has a bit more under the bonnet. Taking a look at its main enhancements it seems Samsung have listened to its consumers and made improvements to its battery; Boosting its previous Li-Ion 2550 mAh battery to a Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery. This is something users have been crying out for since the S6 release.
Due to popular demand of the iPhone 6s and 6s plus, we are pleased to say we have a full re-stock in both models coming to you very soon… Available in all colours too! (Silver, Gold, Space Grey, Rose Gold). Since the leap from the iPhone 6 to the 6s you may wonder what’s new.
To the Adrenaline junkies and gadget lovers across the globe we are delighted to announce that in September 2016 Rye House Raceway will be hosting the 4Gadgets London Cup. Even better we can now confirm that the event will be televised on Motors TV!
4Gadgets are also teaming up with Rye House Raceway and HKC to produce the event of the year so make sure you don’t miss it. There will be many teams and drivers of all ages attending the event hoping to show their skill and speed to the large audience watching the event across the globe. Us as 4Gadgets want to give you the most exhilarating and most thrilling Motorsport event in Rye House Motorsport and Motors TV history.
On Wednesday 24th February 4Gadgets and Weil, Gotshal & Manges will come together to host a charity event, donating all funds raised to The Sick Children’s Trust.
Weil is an international law firm with approximately 1,100 lawyers in 20 offices around the world. 4Gadgets is a growing E-Commerce company which specialise in selling second hand mobile phones and tablets at a fraction of the cost of new devices.
If you aren’t familiar with the great work of The Sick Children’s Trust we will give you a quick insight into their work.
It’s safe to say Mobile phones have become increasingly desirable items in the UK. Ofcom have shown this with an amazing statistic, reporting 93% of adults personally owned/used a mobile phone in the UK in 2015! These figures are increasing on a daily basis in correspondence with mobile phone sales. However consumers have begun to purchase SIM only deals and invest in a second hand smartphone or refurbished smartphones.
We understand the Samsung Galaxy S6 is a very popular phone, which is why we have plenty of second hand Samsung Galaxy S6 in stock! To top it off we currently have 5% discount on all used Samsung Galaxy S6 on the site if you use the coupon code S6Weekend! Check out the offer on our Google+ page.
2014 wasn’t Samsung’s best year, the big release being the Samsung Galaxy S5 ended up quite the anti-climax. The handset did not sell as well as anticipated and to be honest, people weren’t too keen on it. The main reason the S5 was not a great success became apparent, the plastic look was no longer desirable.
That’s right! It’s giveaway time again already at 4Gadgets! We know just how generous we are, we cannot stop giving! We have a FREE Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo up for grabs and it really is easy to enter! You simply have to like or share the competition post on Twitter or Facebook and fill out the form. Please visit our competitions for more information. We have added lots of new stock to the site and there is more to come! Our Samsung stock has been replenished and we really have got a great variety of handsets on offer.
Sorry folks, the festive period is officially over! I hope you’ve all sufficiently indulged because it’s a year before you can justify eating your bodyweight in chocolate and drinking a silly amount of Baileys. Anyway, to get our favourite guys through the worst month of the year, we are in the midst of processing a truck-load of stock. We plan to have re-stocked every out-of-stock device in a variety of colours and storage sizes by early next week! Who said January had to be glum? So - if you dropped your brand new phone (that your parents bought you for Christmas) down the toilet whilst making the most of the festive season, don’t panic!
Some of you may be wondering where to buy second hand phones and how you can minimise the risks associated with buying second hand.
Well, we at 4Gadgets believe that using an online retailer is one of the safest options available to the public. Yes - you may be able to make a quick purchase at a car boot sale but there no way of assuring yourself that what you’ve bought is a legitimate working handset. Many times a lost or stolen mobile phone is purchased at a cheap price only to be subject of an account lock or blacklist after a short period of time, leaving you with a dud handset. Even if the seller isn’t pulling a fast one, there’s no guarantee that the device has been fully tested.

Whether you’re a Christmas fanatic or a modern day Scrooge, 4Gadgets will have something for you this Christmas. We plan to run a series of festive promotions so the 4Gadget’s faithful can purchase the best quality cheap second hand mobiles phones at the best prices.
So it’s that time of year again, Christmas is coming along with the bargains and we sure will have plenty! There will also be great offers even sooner as we prepare to provide our customers with a variety of savings for black Friday on the 27/11/15. 4Gadgets always provide the best second hand mobile phone deals in the UK. We recently had a great Halloween deal on the iPhone 6 which sold out in two days! We will also be providing great offers on the newest additions to the 4gadgets site so make sure you check for great deals over the Christmas period!
Ladies and Gents, put 27/11/15 in your diaries. I know you’ve heard it all before, but this coming Black Friday 4Gadgets really are going to bring something new to the table. Plans are in place to run a whole host of money saving deals. You name it, we’ll discount it. Our previous customers will vouch for us; we aren’t just any other second hand phone shop.

We’re full to the brim with money saving promotions and we can’t wait to unleash them onto our loyal customers! Christmas really has come early!
Just in case you hadn’t already noticed – 4Gadgets have added Royal Mail 48 hour as a delivery option. In the past, if a 4gadgets order did not total £39.99 or more – a DPD delivery charge of £4.95 would be added. Although we have enjoyed great success with the DPD next day delivery system currently in place, we felt that 4gadgets customers undershooting the free delivery charge should not be disadvantaged and have to pay for delivery. We hope this enables customers looking for cheap second hand phones in the UK, who were previously put off by delivery charges, the chance to make a 4gadgets purchase. We’re a thoughtful bunch aren’t we?
As Samsung have become such giants in the mobile phone industry we have made sure we have all these great second hand Samsung phones on sale! They have produced some great phones recently, the Samsung Galaxy S range in particular have become extremely popular. The Samsung galaxy S4 was rated the best Android phone of its release year, the S5 was also rated one of the best phones of the year. The more recent Samsung Galaxy S6 has exceeded all expectations, being rated by many as the phone of the year! The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge also provided great excitement to all phone lovers with its new curved screen, receiving higher ratings than its fierce competitor, the iPhone 6.
Apple’s successful release of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus has forced rival Samsung’s hands as rumours are emerging of an earlier launch of the Samsung Galaxy S7. Rumours suggest that the earlier release stem from Samsung trying to; a) put the Galaxy S7 closer to their rival’s flagship device and nullify the post-release buzz for the Apple goodie and b) create a larger gap between the Galaxy S7 hitting the shelves and the iPhone 7 launch.
What to expect?
We’ve looked into the true cost of owner ship for four of the most popular current models including the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6. To show you how beneficial it can be moving to a SIM only deal and purchasing unlocked second hand phones.
At present, there are two main methods of buying a Mobile Phone. The first being through a contract, where you’re locked in for a set amount of time paying off your handset and the service you use. The second option is to purchase a phone outright and then choose a SIM-only contract or use Pay As You Go.
Second hand phone sales in the UK really are increasing significantly and why wouldn’t they be, you really can make great savings! Second hand phones UK are also becoming very popular for one simple reason; you can buy a second hand phone which now looks like new at a fraction of the cost.
Here at 4Gadgets we have noticed the increased demand for second hand phones, which is why we have such a great variety of stock. We also always try to make sure we are one step ahead of competition by having the lowest prices and stock of the greatest quality.
Sometimes too much anticipation can result in disappointment. However, let’s save that story for another time. Apple’s new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus have demolished previous opening weekend sales records, outselling last year’s counterparts by a cool 3 million handsets. The much awaited new features such as the 3D Touch Screen and Live Photos have earned universally positive reviews, while the upgraded Front and Rear Camera’s and introduction of the Rose Gold finish have also been applauded.
Customers are certainly becoming more interested in buying a refurbished second hand phone. Why wouldn’t you be interested? A refurbished phone will literally be brand new. We follow a simple process with refurbished phones. We simply take an old used model and replace the exterior and interior to make the handset good as new again.
As promised, Apple have finally shed light on their new range of gizmo's that'll no doubt have us all captivated for the foreseeable future.
We've chosen 3 to give you the low-down on; the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus and the iPad Pro.
So what's new?
It appears Apple are planning to quietly retire the iPhone 5c following the grand reveal of the iPhone 6s and 6s plus next month. The 5c is set to be discontinued as the new handsets are released in late September. The likely replacement for this handset is the iPhone 6c, which is rumoured to be another 4-inch handset ready to launch in late November.
Everyone wants a shiny new Apple! Is it the new iPhone 6s or 7?
It’s that time of year again for all you Apple lovers where the rumours begin, is it going to be the iPhone 6s or 7? Surely Apple aren’t developing an iPhone 6s Plus and 6c also? Who knows..
From what we can gather so far, you better start saving as the new device whatever it is will be released on the 9th September! Prices are estimated at roughly £539.99 and nobody wants to pay that, do they?! Why would you when everybody knows that in a matter of weeks 4Gadgets will have this model in stock unlocked. A second hand iPhone in like new condition at a much lower cost! What’s not to like.
Hands up, who has ever read the instruction manual that comes with your iPhone? We bet there are very few people who take the time to leaf through and find out exactly what your device is capable of. So, being the nice people that we are, the team at 4Gadgets has put together some of the best, yet lesser-known features that you should be taking full advantage of. Enjoy!

There’s been strong debate in the 4Gadgets office this week over what mobile phone camera has the best video function. The main reason we were debating is because we have created a video on our Youtube channel that shows customers just how to easy it is to send their handsets back to us if they ever find a problem. Over the coming weeks we are going to be adding lots of different content to the channel, from little tips on how to use your Samsung to answers to FAQs relating directly to our product.

It’s now been just over a month since 4Gadgets launched and everything seems to be falling into place. Direct traffic to www.4gadgets.co.uk has been great and the feedback we have been getting from customers on Trust Pilot shows we really are the best place to buy second hand phone, used and to buy refurbished second hand phones. We also launched a very popular competition to find David Cameron's massive head on our website.
With many people replacing their mobile phones every two years, the turn over for quality used phones is high. While many people have old black and white mobiles knocking around, nowadays there are many decent cheap smartphones going spare. Keen tech-lovers may even replace their phone every six months, particularly if there’s some slight damage to it.
Apple are one of the most well-known brands in the world.
Stylish, innovative and fun, their products have long revolutionised the technology world. It’s no wonder so many people queue round the block when Apple have a new product out. Their designs are a rare combination of both style and substance, as well as accessibility. Steve Jobs very much understood the importance of this: ‘Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
The first Apple iPads came out in 2010, only five years ago. Since then they’ve come a surprisingly long way in a short space of time. In the last quarter of 2013, a record 26 million iPads were sold around the world. That means a great deal of people will be selling used iPads in the next few years.
Mobile phones have come a long way since 2000. Many even feel nostalgic about the days of playing snake on their old Nokia 3210.
As mobile phones continue to evolve, newer models can become outdated in a short space of time. We all know those tech-lovers who upgrade their phone as soon as the latest technology comes along. And how many of us have obsolete mobile phones, knocking around in our drawers? Whether they have a cracked screen or a dodgy keyboard, sought after models are often worth refurbishing.
For those interested in buying an iPhone at a reasonable price, it’s often best to look for one refurbished. Especially since so many phone users are willing to sell. Even the first generation of iPhone have a number of fantastic features, which users love.
It seems like only yesterday that tablet computers first hit the markets. Given the lightning speed that technology changes nowadays, it’s still incredible to realise tablets are old enough to be refurbished. For those born before the advent of the internet, the world has changed irreparably since the days of dial-up internet and non-digitalised television.
We’ve even got the point where we can be nostalgic about technology and its uses. Anyone around in the 1980s could be nostalgic about making mixed-tapes, while 90s kids reminiscence about the now diminishing pre-eminence of the CD. It’s also interesting to speculate on the technology which never really made it big. Mini-disco players, anyone?
Looking for a great second-hand tablet shop? Want to buy online?
Tablet computer sales have recently been taking the bite out of laptops. When Steve Jobs first presented his Apple iPad to the world there may have first been some trepidation. However, it wasn’t long before it established itself as a highly viable consumer product. Today many companies are competing to create the most tech-savvy, advanced tablets available.
So here it is, after months and months of hard work 4gadgets has officially launched at www.4gadgets.co.uk, the best place to buy second hand phones and get quality used, cheap phones at the best prices.
Everyone is extremely excited at this new adventure and over the coming weeks and months the team will be blogging on the site and on social media about new phones, smartphones, smart watches and general mobile phone and gadget topics. Keep checking back for amazing deals on all of our handsets including iPhone, Samsung and HTC. There’s a bargain for everyone at 4Gadgets!
