Product and Services

Refurbished Smartphones with /e/OS

Upon placing Your Order with Us and according to Your instructions, We source used mobile smartphones on which We install /e/OS/ operating system and its default apps.

These phones come with their battery and compatible accessories (hands-free kit and, if specified, other compatible accessories).

/e/OS/ is a version of Android that does not use Google’s Android services. The OS operating system is constantly improving, and it may have different features from a Google Android system, different choice of Android application than what can be found on the Google Play store. /e/OS is not a Google Product, and it is not supported by Google under any circumstances.

Our smartphones are refurbished and are not delivered in their original packaging. The Product We sell must undergo tests and treatments that vary according to their type in order to provide You with a near “new” condition. The list of said tests and treatments performed by type of Product is available upon request.

All smartphones we sell have undergone a data “hard reset” before being put on sale.
