In your case never from them.

The seller didn't care enough to tell you what it is or why.

For you, do not buy from them!

I shared a view and a bad sign about togofogo.

The seller did not answer your questions. This is not a good sign and one that you need to move on to makers and sellers that will talk to you.

My experience is if pre-sales is bad, after sale support is worse. This is a very bad sign for the seller you noted.

Refurbish phones at reasonable price

Buying used phones is not only a good way to save you a few bucks, but also an excellent way of engaging in environmental conservation. Today, there are many reputable manufacturers who offer refurbished these wonder devices at a pocket-friendly cost.

Refurbished Phones looks GREAT..! Performs POOR..!

Refurbished phones are good for temporary use but it will not last longer. Also most of the refurbished phones have fake or cheap parts, I will not recommend buying a refurbished phone. If you just want a high end device for show off at a pocket friendly cost you can buy, otherwise a big NO to refurbished phones.

Yes, Refurbished Mobile Phone is Good to Buy

Yes, While refurbished phones have often been used, the term "used" has a more specific meaning. A used phone is sold as is. It has not been tested or fixed, and it comes with no guarantee. A refurbished phone is different in that it has been tested, repaired if necessary, and it has been cleaned.
You can buy this category phone from several sites and shops. It will save your money on spending branded smart phone.

Not a Good Idea

If you want to buy a refurbish phone for saving few bugs, I said it is one of your bad decisions. Much time they sell their phone because they aren't happy to use that phone. The money needed is one of the issues. But a fresh new phone is better Happy

Check Completely when satisfied go with it

Its up to you, how much you're familiar with mobiles and how mush you have authority under the mobiles checking. If it operating system is Android then install the application named by CPU-Z and check it's specification and check it's IEMI NO by dialing *#06#. IEMI No must starts with 35 and it's 7th and 8th number must be 60, 60, you can check this detail through google searching. Check each and every thing of it like camera, OS, Version, etc. At the end you only the responsible for anything.

Yes you can buy refurbished phones from authorised retailers

Refurbished Phones are those phones that have been reworked upon to function. Authorized sellers sell those phones on certain warranty. Do verify the sellers properly before buying from anywhere. However, its good option to save money. As you can get your dream gadgets in very less price.
