They have no warranties

Warranty is usually out of the question when it comes to London used phones. The phones have been used by a previous owner who is not in the same location as the new buyer and so, even if the warranty issued by the company it was originally purchased from is still valid, the new owner cannot take advantage of it. This means that the new owner cannot return the phone if they discover a factory damage or encounter technical issues.
