We look at the Swappie iPhone 12 Pro, which, if you are quick, can still be a good xmas present option for the iPhone lover in your life. See similar examples here on their website. The phone we received was in great condition, looked as good as new, no visible scratches. In terms of price, it does vary, so it is best to look on the site to see what is the best match for your budget and own personal specifications, but naturally they are all significantly cheaper than buying a new, non-refurbished one. 

iPhone 12 Pro from Swappie reviewed

More and more people are coming to the realisation that they not only don’t need a new phone every year, and, when it is time to replace what they have, they might not actually need an absolutely ‘new’ phone either. Swappie, originally created in Helsinki, but with a name that works well in the English speaking world too, have identified a clear and appealing business opportunity.

We set our reviewers loose on this one, and, as we move into a world where, arguably newer versions of phones offer incremental rather than substantially different versions in their latest releases, this is a great piece of technology. And, also, one that would more than adequately do the job for almost everyone. At the same time too, you are, accordingly to Swappie, having 50% less impact in terms of the environmental impact by buying an option like this.

Out of the box it looks great, with a Swappie rather than iPhone box, but that seems like a small, trivial difference. How often do you look at the box once the phone is up and running. It looked brand new, no scratches, damage or defects. The usability is the same, great photos on the camera, all the same options. We asked our teen and preteen reviewers what they would think of a gift like this, with the environmental elements too.

This was an additional plus from their perspective. Swappie’s goal is for 50% of the market going forwards to be refurbished phones. This is a massive goal, but could hopefully ensure better use of precious metals and other necessary materials   to build phones going forwards.

More about the phone – iPhone 12 Pro features

With an extra telephoto camera lens, a Light Detection and ranging sensor, the 12 Pro is the premium solution for your photography instinct. The new sensor can focus 6 times quicker than its predecessors. As if this was not enough, the 12 Pro boasts more RAM, twice the base storage, and an elegant stainless steel frame.

6,1-Inch display:

The iPhone 12 Pro’s advanced Super Retina XDR display gives you a fully immersive experience. It has brighter brights, darker blacks and a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio. The hyperdetailed XDR display is truly stunning to look at. The notch at the top is smaller than in previous models and the Ceramic Shield glass is extremely durable.

Face ID:

The iPhone 12 Pro is designed to protect your information. Face ID protects your privacy and allows you to unlock your phone by looking at it.


The iPhone 12 Pro features a brilliant triple 12 MP camera system with wide and ultra-wide angle lenses. Low-light shots are better than ever and Night Mode now includes portraits. The new wide camera captures 27 percent more light. Last but not least, the camera lets you record 4K HDR video with Dolby Vision – the first camera ever to do so.

Powerful processor:

The A14 Bionic chip is the first 5-nanometre chip in the industry and makes the impossible possible. It can run trillions of operations on the Neural Engine, or shoot video in Dolby Vision – something even professional movie cameras can’t do. Its incredible efficiency provides great battery life and unbeatable speed.

Turbo charging and MagSafe.:

The iPhone 12 Pro comes with faster, magnetic wireless charging and MagSafe: a magnetic feature that lets you attach accessories to the phone.


We provide a 12-month warranty for all our phones.
