iPhone 4s

The iPhone 4s is in many ways a ground breaking phone which took the popular iPhone 4 and revamped the specifications dramatically to produce the immensely popular iPhone 4s.

The cheapest iPhone contract that you can currently get on the market today is the refurbished iPhone 4s 8GB deal. There are numerous contract deals that include the iPhone free of charge and cost less than £10 per month.

All you need to know about the Apple iPhone 4s

The iPhone 4s is quite simply the cheapest refurbished iPhone that you can currently get on a monthly contract. There are many contracts which offer you a free refurbished iPhone 4s at less than £10 per month!

Clearly the phone is not the best specified iPhone on the market but it still performs admirably well and runs the latest version of iOS so you can do most, if not all of the tasks that are possible on the later iPhone models.

The screen size is 3.5 inches which translates to a phone of small dimensions. It could be an ideal phone for younger users given the small size and low cost.

Even though the iPhone 4s is several models old is still houses the 8 megapixel camera – the same number of megapixels in many of the later iPhone models so this iPhone would be excellent as a cheap camera phone when you are out and about.

The battery is probably the single most disappointing element in the iPhone 4s package. It uses a 1432 mAh battery which only offers 200 hours standby time so careful management of the phone usage is needed to get a full day’s use.

The most common refurbished iPhone 4s models are the 8GB black and 8GB white varieties. These are the entry level models and as a consequence are the cheapest. If you have bad credit, no credit history or you have been turned down for a phone contract in the past, a refurbished iPhone 4s contract may be a good option because the phone itself is one of the older models of iPhone and it is refurbished. Although it would be remiss to say that there would be no credit check on this phone, it is likely that the credit check would be easier to pass than it would be for say an iPhone 5s or iPhone 6.

A great choice for those that want an iPhone but have a low budget.

Refurbished iPhone 4s Review

If you want to own an iPhone but don’t want to break the bank, you could get a free refurbished iPhone 4s on contract for around £8 per month. This could be an ideal phone contract for younger family members or students. It is certainly not the latest cutting edge iPhone, but you will not find a cheaper monthly iPhone contract! A solid buy.
