Our Grading Scale: Precisely Defined

We are well aware of the challenges that come along with inconsistent and incomplete triage, and we therefore strive to differentiate ourselves through transparency and consistency.

We offer both fully functional and not fully functional devices.

Fully Functional Grades (A1, A2, B1, C1, C2, FFCG, FFLB)

A1

All A1 grade devices are fully functional. They can be described as flawless or like new. They do not have any signs of use.

A2

All A2 grade devices are fully functional. They appear flawless at first glance.

They have a few, very minor blemishes that are only uncovered upon close inspection and / or rotating them under the light. These blemishes are often found near the ports, corners or the Apple logo.

All B1 grade devices are fully functional. They may appear flawless at first glance.

They may either have several faint, small scratches or a few longer, faint scratches on the screen. They may have light scuffs on their housing.
