International studies indicate that most smartphones have a lifespan of about 7 years but, most people do not use them for more than 18 months. More than saving money, opting for refurbished smartphones also lets you fight against technological waste. By giving a second-life to these all functioning devices and lowering pollution levels, Forall Phones contributes to a more sustainable development of the environment.
