>> Check if the phone comes with original accessories like charger, headphones and box.

>> Check the IMEI number of the phone. This will help you understand whether it is a stolen or lost phone. Ask the seller for the phone box.

>> Know whether the phone is still under warranty or not. If the phone is under warranty, transfer the warranty to your name. This will help you in case of phone problems.

>> Many times it is seen that after falling in water or getting wet, the damaged phone is sold. To check any such phone you are buying second hand, look for water marks or rust on the screen of the phone.

>> When bargaining, remember that a low price does not necessarily mean a good deal. If the phone is in good condition and comes with all its accessories, you can pick it up for a bit more.

>>Also get receipt from seller while buying second hand phone. In that case, it will be convenient if there is any problem with the phone in the future.
