Grading Criteria

The Renewable Mobile Group runs through an extensive testing process before preparing any device for redistribution. Your device is evaluated and data cleansed using accredited software which means all data is wiped and new software installed.

At this stage the device also goes through a 50 point diagnostics process to ensure all functions are working and functional.

Should any of these functions fail then the device is diverted to our technical department for evaluation.

The device will then be cosmetically graded, depending upon its usability this will affect where your device ends up. It may be repaired, software updated, recycled or alternatively it may be used for spare parts.

Cosmetic Grading

Our grading policy reflects at the cosmetics of the device. All of our devices have passed our rigorous 50 point functionality test, every device is individually checked for locks from any carriers, MDM, iCloud, FRP or Blacklisting.
We use globally certified secure erasure systems for data security. After devices have completed these stages they get cleaned and sanitized then cosmetically graded into the following categories.

A Grade - Near New Condition

Only up to two very minor scuff marks or scratches allowed which are not visible from an arms length.

B+ Grade - Excellent Condition

Light scuffs or scratches allowed which cannot be easily detected from an arms length

Scratches cannot be felt when running a fingernail over the screen.

B- Grade - Good Condition

Light scuffs &/or scratches allowed on screen & home button, but no chips or cracks.

Moderate scuffs &/or scratches on back cover, but no cracks or severe abrasions.

C Grade - Poor Condition

Unlimited severe scratches, scuffs, marks and abrasions to the body and screen of the device but no cracks.
