9 Important Things to Check Out When Buying an Original Mobile Phone

Original mobile phone could come with some defects, it is advisable to check any phone you want to buy or have paid for before leaving the phone store. Some phone stores insist that you pay before they let you inspect the phone. However, they are willing to change the phone if you discover any defect(s). Other stores could let you inspect the phone before paying for it.

To minimize or eliminate the risk of buying a fake phone, it is advisable to buy from authorized distributors. In this post, I am going to discuss what to look out for when buying a mobile phone, given that you have already spotted an original one to ensure it is working optimally before concluding purchase or payment.


In this post, I will outline some checks to make before leaving the phone store. They are:
1. Press all the buttons to ensure they are responding well and showing the corresponding letter, figure, punctuation or character when pressed.

2. Insert a SIM card in the phone and dial the number of a friend or anyone else. Confirm you could hear them and that they could hear you. This way, you can be sure that the mouthpiece and earpiece are in order.


3. Have someone call you to confirm that the phone rings and vibrates properly.

4. Connect the charger to the phone and ascertain if it is charging the phone.


5. If the phone comes with earphones, plug it in, play music, ringtones, radio and make calls to be sure it is working.

6. If it is a dual SIM phone, make sure that the two SIM slots are functional and working as stated.


7. Generally browse through the phone menu

8. Don't forget to ask for warranty information from the (re)seller as well as the duration of their return/replacement policies.


9. When you get home or office, fully charge the battery before use. However, you can use the phone before charging it, but make sure the battery does not run down completely before charging it fully.
