Our TV boxes still relevant in 2020?

It seems like they have been around for an age but really android boxes only first burst on the scene around 2013. For most people they were not really sure what they were or how to use them but within a year or two they were one of the best selling products on Amazon and almost every home had one. So are they really relevant today with the popularity of other competing products like the smart TV or the firestick or even the Chromecast that has become so popular?

Well the short answer is yes they are still popular and they are still relevant. In fact many homes operate with just a TV box and internet due to the crazy amount that TV companies are now charging. Simply put many cannot afford it and it is just as good to have an android TV box with one of the most popular apps like Netflix to watch your favorite shoes when you want.

Of course live TV has its place, especially when it comes to watching sports and the UFC have proven that the pay per view model is still a thing. But even companies like the UFC are moving to an all digital experience with Fight pass becoming a huge hit in the USA. When companies leading the way in digital TV are heading to an all digital type of delivery then everyone else needs to take notice.

Soon all TV will be digital it’s just a matter of how that will work and on what platform will be used. Traditional TV channels will be forced to go digital or else they will die as rating have gotten worse and worse for most TV channels. Some hit shows like Love Island still manage to get huge ratings but normal TV as a whole is not doing so good. TV boxes are not the cause of this but they are an instrument that people who are moving from traditional TV will use to get digital TV on their old TVs.

The iPhone has changed the world drastically in the last 10 years and they take up a huge share of the market both here in Ireland and abroad but one thing is for sure is that they aren’t cheap.

Are Refurbished iPhones Good To Buy?

Consumers may be slightly concerned when buying a refurbished iPhone as of course they are a second hand good. So are they OK to buy? Well of course it depends on where you are buying and who you are buying from. Would we recommend buying from a random stranger online…no not really. That is why it is important to buy from a company who specialize in this sort of thing. That way if anything goes wrong you can have them sort it out. We had a quick look around online and see there are a number of stores doing refurbished iPhones. One with good reviews and seems to be around a while is phonesforsale.ie refurbished iPhone store online. For example this company offer a 12 month warranty and they even have pictures of the phones online so you can see before you buy.

Make sure the phone is not stolen:

Stolen iPhones will be blacklisted and again this is why using a good reputable company is another plus. Of course they will not be selling stolen iPhones or if they were they would be out of business pretty quickly! If you are still not happy though you can ask the seller for the iPhone IMEI number and then you can run that check on a stolen phone checker like this one. Just follow the steps on that website and you will be all good.

Make sure the battery is OK:

This is the only real drawback from getting a refurbished iPhone. The batteries will be slightly depleted. They should however be at least 85% of what they were which is about normal for a used iPhone. You can even ask the supplier to add a new battery and pay extra if that is a concern.

So these are all ways to make sure you get an iPhone safely and without spending hundreds of euro. Let us know how you get on :).
