iPhone 8 Unlocked handset
As mobile experts, we came to realize that the most common problems users tend to have with refurbished phones and mobile phones in general. One of biggest issues users usually have with iPhones is that they are locked by default. This is why when you buy the refurbished iPhone 8 you enjoy using an unlocked device that enables you to use any carrier's SIM card in it with no technical blockages or problems.
QwikFone's unlocking of the iPhone 8 is authorized and regulated to ensure no issues arise from using it in any country.
We know that buying a renewed phone comes with the concern and question of how to get a quality charger and earphones for it. When it comes to iPhones, this becomes an even bigger issue. QwikFone solves this problem for you once and for all with a free set of new accessories that has QwikFone's branding and warranty as well as a quality level similar to Apple's accessories.
The refurbished iPhone 8 warranty covers the handset and the set of accessories so that you don't have to pay for anything during the first year. This warranty ensures a free repair for any manufacturing or refurbishing issues in the phone and free replacements for the accessories that have manufacturing issues as well.
While QwikFone's warranty policy covers only manufacturing-caused problems in the iPhone, our paid repair service is also available for any issues that are caused due to misuse or accidental damages in the iPhone.
Please note that opening or repairing the iPhone by any party other than QwikFone's certified professionals during the warranty period violates our warranty policy terms and will evoke the free repairs later on.

The return policy which includes this refund details states that the iPhone device must be kept in its pristine condition and the accessory set must be complete and brand-new for the return request to be validated and accepted by QwikFone.

Battery Life of iPhone 8
One of the main misconceptions regarding refurbished smartphones and iPhone is that these devices might have low battery life or untrustworthy performance.
With Pristine smartphones and pristine iPhone 8, the quality measurements of the battery life is 80 to 90 percent of the battery life.
This means that the battery does charge up to 100% normally just like a brand-new battery would. So, what does a 90% of the battery life means?
Well, battery life means the entire lifetime of the battery in terms of how long the battery itself would last. For example, if the battery is built to be fully charged to 100% capacity 1000 times, then the life of a refurbished iPhone's pristine battery is going to be between 800 to 900 times where the battery can be fully charged to 100%.

iPhone 8 key features & technical specs
Before buying a refurbished iPhone 8, you, as a user, need to have a clear image of this iPhone's abilities and features to be able to decide whether it is suited for your needs or not. Luckily, since it has been a few years since this specific iPhone was released, our experts can give you a verdict regarding the iPhone 8 specs performance and highlight the best of its features.
iPhone 8 design
The design of the iPhone 8 caused huge controversy as it came out quite similar to iPhone 7s and has a little larger body that the iPhone 7. Although users who wanted a new revolutionary design were not happy with that, the design of the iPhone 8 as a flagship gave it its own category making it difficult for Android flagship phones to compete without the compact screen of the iPhone 8.
As users have passed the idea of having to have a flagship with a huge size, the iPhone 8 design turned out to be great. Everything part of the screen is easily accessible and it is super easy to use the device with one hand!
iPhone 8 screen and display
Once again with the same feature as iPhone 7, the iPhone 8 has a 4.7-inch Retina display. However, the iPhone 8 screen is supported with the True Tone feature which gives it an improved color range, contrast, and saturation that makes it like an entirely new screen that Apple invented just for this phone!
iPhone 8 camera performance
Another part of the iPhone 8 that, on paper, would mislead you into thinking that it is the same one in the iPhone7. Once again, Apple's subtle upgrades amp up the performance of the 12MP camera to enable it to film 4K videos at 60fps and slow-motion videos at 240fps!
In addition to all of its glory, the iPhone 8 camera is supported with optical image stabilisation (OIS), PDAF, and HDR.
The conclusion that our mobile experts have come to with the iPhone 8 is that it might not look all that different from iPhone 7, but Apple has done some serious upgrades that will make you want to have that phone immediately!
