Refurbished products undergo rigorous procedure involving steps such as fault investigation, repair and overhaul to resolve the issues and restore the products to its original factory settings. The long and short of it is that a refurbished product is not new but is ‘LIKE-NEW’.

Refurbished smartphones are cheaper because they no longer contain the factory seal and have been returned from its first owner that too in a very short time span after the purchase. And it’s a universal phenomenon that when any product gets sold for the first time its value only depreciates thereafter.
  • People also believe that refurbished phones comprise fake parts and accessories. To counter this we must tell you that only the faults are worked upon when a phone enters YAANTRA refurbishing lab and no other part or no other setting is disturbed during its stay in our refurb lab.

Do you Understand Cache memory?

No one can deny the fact that the smartphone network today has a built itself a grand fan building than ever. With everyday improvements these devices are becoming more and more beloved to you. But along with all these updates, has your device begun to lag lately or its performance has retarded recently, then there is a possibility that you are not taking care of your smartphone as smartly as you should have been.


Well your device makes you keeps you happy most of the times with loaded and updated apps, but you are equally responsible to maintain this efficiency of your smartphone. It is possible that your device has a huge portion of cache memory. Defining it in simple words, the Cached data is nothing but files, images, scripts and other media files stored on your devices by any website or app. Data is stored on your devices in a reserved space, so the next time when you are visiting the app or website, information is already available. It makes the process faster as it does not require loading of all the files again.

Lets make it simple to understand using an example,  say you and your friends visited a place for the very first time, so what does your brain does other than thinking of the fun you all can have? Well it makes a map of your surroundings at the same time. It notices everything and stores it in memory so that when your visit the same again in sometime, it is easier for you to settle. This is somewhat the same way in which cached data behaves. When a device visits a website or uses an app, certain data is stored in the form of cache in the device memory. Next time when your smartphone accesses the same web site, it is easier for the device to access it because of the cached data that was stored when the website was visited the first time.

The main reason why cached data exists is to reduce loading time. So if the device already has the layout of the website saved in the form of cached data, it will not have to load that same data once again. This helps in quickening the process of loading the website. This makes cache helpful, doesn’t it? Then why remove it, lets see that too.

While cached data is helpful for computers, smartphones, and tablets, it can take up space on your device and it may, over a period of time, get corrupt. While the cached data on your device can be helpful for the websites you visit regularly, it can be considered a waste for those websites which you will be visiting just once and there is greater possibility that you won’t access them in near future. But you don’t have to spend a penny on this or get your device repaired, it is done with a few simple steps.

Android devices manage app data very efficiently, and for most of the users, you will not have to worry about managing the cached data manually. However, when the phone begins to face issues and you are trying to fix a problem by following certain troubleshooting steps, then you may come across a step which may ask you to clear cache.

 All apps, whether they are system apps or third party apps will have cached data. Since cached data is automatically created and it does not include any important data, wiping or clearing the cache for an app or a device is harmless. So check your smartphone memory and now and wipe the cache data and experience better functioning of your device again.

Post GST Effects on Refurbished Smartphones

Last week was nothing short of havoc in the Indian telecom industry with the introduction of Goods & Service Tax (GST) by the government. The prices of smartphones have considerably increased, making it difficult for shoppers to buy. Smartphones lovers in India are finding it difficult to digest sudden hike in prices of the brand new smartphones. Will GST really impact the price of budget phones?

It doesn’t matter whether it is new or refurbished smartphone, GST has affected each of them. Now, the question arises that the so called budget phones, which are claimed to be affordable, are they still affordable?

No! GST has affected re-commerce sector immensely. Nevertheless, before reaching out to any conclusion, we have to understand how GST has affected re-commerce sector:



  1. When a consumer sells his old smartphone to the buyer (refurbisher). Then there is no VAT involved in this transaction because seller is not a registered entity
  2. On the other side, when refurbisher restores the old smartphone to fully working condition and sells the refurbished smartphone in the market, then he becomes liable to pay 5% VAT. Let me remind you one thing, that there is no VAT credited to refurbisher, since he had purchased old smartphone from an individual entity.
  3. What does this mean? It means, seller/manufacturer refurbisher had to pay the amount (VAT) from their pocket itself, which they were earlier deducted from their profit margins and this transaction was already proving to be a harmful one.


Since the implementation of GST, the VAT % has increased from 5% to 18%, cutting down the profit margins of the refurbisher to bare minimum. This dramatic hike in the VAT has made re-commerce sector non profitable and re-commerce companies are forced to increase the price of their products to survive in this difficult time.

However, despite the implementation of GST, there are number of leading companies in refurbished e-commerce sector including overcart, shoplcues, and who are still ensuring that their shoppers wouldn’t have to face the struggle while buying refurbished smartphone. These re-commerce smartphone companies are coming with daily deals, several offers and introducing several coupon codes consistently to allow customer to get relief.


While all of this is happening, we cannot deny the fact that it has become one hell of a trouble for these companies to survive after GST. Government needs to take some actions; probably they should lower down a certain percentage of tax to give some relief to the Refurbished companies.
