Grade 2 - Visibly Used
As with Grade 1, these devices will be fully refurbished and be very clean, but will have obvious signs of wear and tear. There will be no cracks in the plastics. A scratch will be visible if a picture is taken on the lid.
There will be more evidence of wear on commonly used ports, like the network and power socket, and in the corners of lids and hinges in the case of laptops.
May be port covers missing but will still look like a Grade 1 everywhere else.
However, these are minor cosmetic issues, none of which affect the functionality.
There may be faint marks on laptop and tablet screens. These will be slightly visible in a picture and will be visible from most angles, but invisible when the device is turned on. There will be no dead pixels. There may be 1 or 2 slight white spots visible when displaying a white background.
With age, wear and tear does become more evident.
Any device which exhibits all the issues above is classed as Grade 3.
Buy this item if you are looking for a fully functional device at a great price, and don’t need perfect cosmetics.
