We invited ourselves to Apple to plant a few “seeds” for a good cause.
We eat, sleep, and do bathroom stuff all with our phone in hand. But have we ever really checked in on its effect on the environment?
This fee allows Back Market to invest in quality control with our refurbishers, to offer you the best experience possible when buying refurbished products from us.
You might hear a lot of mis-information about 5G causing this, causing that, and generally being a big scary problem.

We’ve emptied our piggy bank and traded in the obligatory arm and a leg. All so we could get our remaining hand on the latest iPhone 12 and see how it stacks up against our refurbished iPhone 8, X and 11. So, let’s take an objective look at whether the iPhone 12 is – at present – worthy of its number and price tag.
The production and end-of-life disposal of our smartphones, computers and other modern tech has a dramatic impact on the environment, which can often be overlooked when compared to other environmental issues. Half of the carbon emissions from the digital sector (making up 4% of global emissions) come from the production of such devices and refurbishing these instead of simply replacing, while not a perfect solution, can help to significantly limit their environmental impact. We’d like to tell you a little more about it here.
For each accessory sold, at least £1 is donated to PUR Project. PUR Project is supporting and actively working with the village of Pejarakan in its waste management and in the regeneration of its environment. The funds provided will enable the extension of the pilot program – launched in 2019 – in one of the districts of the city Batu Ampar Banjar.
So… it seems that we're going to be spending a little time confined to our homes, with only the plants for company. It's probably a good time to grow a small vegetable garden on your balcony anyway, or… maybe just reconnect with your console or PC. But there will come a time when you have to work, so for those of you who are not used to working remotely, we’re here to offer you a small survival kit to equip you in these exceptional circumstances.

In the 21st century, mobile phones have become somewhat of an additional limb for everyone. Well, except the few who refuse to be in touch with the times. When it comes to mobile phones, no discussion can be genuinely complete without mentioning iPhones. These Apple products have come to epitomize class and functionality in the smartphone sector.
It is the small things that matter to the consumer, and Apple has given its customers all reason to continue being loyal. The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR were launched in 2018. The models have improved battery life, better cameras, and a boost in performance. Previously iPhones lagged in the battery life category, but with the new XS models, the smartphone’s battery life is on the leaderboard. All these improvements give you enough reason to pick the iPhone over other smartphone brands. We shall discuss some of the different iPhone XS tests, including the drop test, battery life test, processor speed, and camera test.
When looking for the best iPhone to buy, it is essential to look at your prospective phone's features and price. iPhone X is an excellent choice for those looking for the best smartphone with useful features. iPhone smartphones are popularly known for their security, ease of use, and integration with other Apple products. We will help you learn how to choose the best refurbished iPhone X and get value for your money.
Can you believe the first iPhone was only released in 2007? Neither can we. It feels as though our beloved Apple iPhone handsets have been glued to hands for life. :D For those of us who are die-hard Apple fans, the only real question at Black Friday or contract renewal time is which iPhone to choose.

Okay, we're going a bit too far here ;-) On a serious note though, both phones provide serious value-for-money and won't disappoint. In fact, the latest IOS update 14.0.1 available on both devices will give you that seamless experience you've been waiting for on a mobile device.

So you need a new phone, and have zeroed in on the refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8, and the refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. Great choices both! These guys are absolute monsters in innovation and design with their glass-and-metal sandwich designs, and spillover edge-to-edge screens. Right off the bat however, you should know that the processor, camera, and technical specs are almost the same in the refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8, and the refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, so the difference is mostly in size, price and battery life.Read on, and hopefully you'll have decided on whether the refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8, or the refurbished Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus makes its way to your pocket.
Samsung stands out as a leading smartphone manufacturer for a good reason – quality. The company did not become the bestseller of Android devices overnight. Its flagship product line, Samsung Galaxy S, offers users new premium features and aesthetics with every release. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is one of the finest smartphones in the Galaxy S family. Its official launch was in March 2018, but it remains one of the most sought-after android devices. Are you wondering why anyone would be shopping for a device so old in the market? Hang on. If you want the best value for your hard-earned cash, don't be the first to buy a newly launched product unless you want to be a guinea pig. It's best to wait until the first buyers to review it.
The Apple iPhone XS Max was launched in September 2018, and since then, it has been dominating the world of smartphones. This Apple iPhone is the complete package. It is equipped with new and better features than its predecessors (i.e., iPhone X, iPhone XR, and iPhone XS). On Back Market, we present you with both new and refurbished iPhone XS Max. And in this guide, we take you through the outstanding features of iPhone XS Max, from camera quality to screen design, hardware to the physical structure. This will help you flawlessly navigate the phone and get the best out of it.
Since the very first iPhone was launched more than a decade ago, every September there’s a customary annual rush to own the latest model. As the technology improves and more features have been added, the price tag has steadily crept up to a front-page grabbing £1000. But that’s all well and good if you simply can’t do without the very latest iPhone—a lot of us out here can’t either. But what if all you want is a lightning-fast iPhone with excellent features without stretching your purse strings too much?
If there's one kitchen appliance that helps make mealfwattasgetimes and food prep easier, it's a food processor. From grinding nuts, pureeing vegetables and whizzing up cauliflower rice, to chopping herbs and blending up chickpeas to make delicious hummus, a food processor is a very nifty tool to have to hand. It can truly help you take your culinary skills to the next level and expand on the range of recipes you can make. A food processor can work with both wet and dry ingredients, which goes beyond the functionality of appliances such as blenders (where liquid is required) and hand mixers. A strong food processor will also be able to handle hard substances such as nuts and ice. Food processors are ideal for anyone who is aiming to follow a healthy lifestyle as they let you prepare healthy snacks such as fresh fruit (chopping or in smoothies) and vegetables quickly and easily. Similarly, anyone who follows a vegetarian or vegan diet would do well to have a food processor in their arsenal. Even better if it's a refurbished food processor!
The robots have come a long way over the past few years, haven't they. From vacuuming floors to mowing lawns, they really have stepped up their game around the house. Pastry robots, aka stand mixers, add another string to the bows of the robots, and can take a lot of the hard work out of bread making and home baking. Aside from making your job easier, a pastry robot will also provide better results than if you were to do everything manually, by perfectly combining ingredients such as eggs, flour, butter and sugar and creating a smooth, creamy consistency.
Should I buy the refurbished MacBook Pro or the refurbished MacBook Air? Do I want style or substance? Are they both necessarily exclusive? Questions, questions! But you've come to the right place to figure out which one's for you, the MacBook Pro or the MacBook Air!
Ah! So you want a portable computer, and have settled on the gold standard of laptops, Apple's cherished MacBook Pro collection. Great choice! Pretty back-lit keyboards.. a smooth multi-touch track pad, and an overall enjoyable user experience. What's even better? Apple has abandoned those flimsy Butterfly keyboards (a carpal nightmare, weren't they?) and replaced them with the super intuitive Magic Touch Keyboards.
Deciding what MacBook to get is never easy with the frequent new releases and new technology. And most people do not know what to look when getting one. To pick the right Mac, you need to consider the purpose of the device. If the Mac is for sending emails, skyping, or using Instagram, you do not need an expensive laptop. While people looking for a gaming laptop will go for Macs with higher processor speeds. There are various factors to consider when getting a Mac; the cost, the laptop’s processor, memory just to mention a few.
In June 2020, not long after a certain global pandemic called COVID 19 disrupted life as we knew it, Sony announced their new games console. It is, of course, the PS5. It is due for release at the end of the year along with an upgraded version, the PS5 Pro. Along with the release of the Xbox series X, 2020 will undoubtedly be the year of the next-gen! And it's also the perfect time to check out the previous generation of consoles from Sony, the PS4 and its more advanced editions, the PS4 Slim (more ergonomic) and PS4 Pro (more powerful). Why is now a good time to consider the PS4? Put simply, the video game catalog for this console is excellent and prices are always lower when a new model is released, as is the case with the iPhone. You could also double your savings by opting for a refurbished PS4 instead of buying new. The price will be even lower than for a new PS4 and you'll save a few kilos of electronic parts going to waste. Sounds tempting? Sony offers 3 versions of this games console; the "standard" PS4 (2013), and the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro (both 2016). So, which one to choose?
Consumers in the modern age don't sacrifice convenience when shopping for gadgets. They want the best of everything.

Today, you can enjoy your favourite tunes at the remotest place on earth, thanks to Bluetooth loudspeakers. Who goes camping without some decent music and blames electricity? In this guide, we will lead you through the process of finding the wireless speaker that suits your needs.
