Gradings

All of the used mobile phones that Phoenix Cellular sells are assessed by experienced technicians for their overall appearance and finish.

Our industry-leading, highly reliable and consistent grading system ensures that you can meet the needs of your customers while making effective pricing decisions.

How Our Grading Works

All the phones we test are graded for their external appearance. Briefly summarised, our grades are:

  • Grade A Pristine: ‘almost perfect’ handsets
  • Grade A/B: light signs of use
  • Grade B: minor signs of use; more than 5 light screen scratches
  • Grade C: average wear and tear

The following explains the grading terminology and bandings in more detail.
