Demand for refurbished electronic devices
‘A customer is never out of warranty, even if his product is.´ – Seth Godin
Mobile brands have a tendency to introduce new mobile modes in less than a year’s gap. Moreover, new and trending mobile models account for their social status for the millennials and Gen Z generation. Therefore, keeping up with the latest and modern digital devices is a must.
In recent years, the demand for mobile phones has reached its peak, especially amongst students. However, opting for low-budget models may also seem to hinder its functionality and features.
Today, no brand offers a one-stop solution for all products lined up within the brand for quality spares or the best service-level agreement. To add to this, unorganized vendors don’t offer non-transparent services. It simply leads to further mistrust.
In a nutshell
Today’s generation makes use of convenience over cost. Therefore, Xtracover is considered when buying refurbished warranty devices from e-commerce websites like Flipkart with warranty assurance covered by Xtracover.
