What is Magpie Certified Refurbished?

Our team of trained professionals test every phone we receive using PhoneCheck, an industry standard software solution that tests devices for over 70 potential faults. PhoneCheck is renowned for its accuracy, helping us to identify and fix any potential issues during the refurbishment process.

Every device we sell has passed the PhoneCheck test and has a Certificate of Identification and Functionality to prove it, meaning you can shop with complete confidence!

The PhoneCheck test consists of over 70 different checks, some of which test components you may not even realise your phone has!


Here are the most important checks included in the test...


Battery Quality

It’s no secret that phone batteries degrade over time, but some last longer than others. PhoneCheck determines the remaining life of the battery, as well as identifying any potential faults.


If the battery’s life is below a certain percentage or shows any sign of faults, our expert technicians will replace it.

Screen Condition

PhoneCheck determines whether there are any LCD bright spots on the screen, as well as checking the LCD digitizer (the part that actually displays images), ForceTouch and 3D Touch.

On top of this, we also carry out our own checks for chips, cracks and scratches, as well as liquid damage, screen burn, discolouration and green frame.


Any damaged screens are replaced by our expert technicians. You won’t even be able to tell if the phone you’ve bought ever had a faulty screen!

Data Security

PhoneCheck contains a fast and efficient data wiping process that allows us to remove all data from a phone PERMANENTLY including...

  • Photos
  • GPS & Maps
  • SD Cards
  • Browser Search History
  • Social Media Chat Logs

When you buy a phone from us, you can be sure it’s completely clear of the previous owner’s details and data.
