What Factors to Consider When Buying a New T-Mobile Phone

While it's typical to want the newest or most popular model on the market when shopping for a new phone, there are a few elements to consider when deciding which T-Mobile phone to purchase. 


Before buying a phone off the internet from an individual seller, it's essential to know whether the new pre-owned device will be compatible with your current carrier. Unsecure websites or sellers cannot provide any guarantee that your phone will work upon activation. At Gazelle, all of our T-Mobile phones are compatible with T-Mobile, ensuring it will work with the service.


Another important factor to consider is the amount of storage you'll need. If you don't use many apps or take many pictures and videos, you can opt for less storage, such as a 32 GB. 

However, if you use your phone for work or love to share pictures and videos with family, you might want to upgrade the storage to a larger amount, such as 256 GB or 512 GB. At Gazelle, we offer a range of storage types so you can find the phone you want with the storage you need. 


While you might think most smartphones are similar in size, some can vary by two or three inches, which may be a factor you want to consider. For example, the iPhone XS Max is 6.46 inches, the Galaxy S7 Edge is 5.5 inches and the Google Pixel 5 is 6 inches. 

If you use your phone for travel and work, you might want a bigger size phone with a larger display. If you only use your phone for basic functions, such as contacting loved ones and surfing the web, then you might prefer a more compact device. 


While all smartphones come with many convenient features, some may be more important to your needs than others. These features can help you decide which phone is right for you. 

Here are some elements you should consider when purchasing a pre-owned T-Mobile cell phone:

  • Camera quality 
  • User interface
  • Battery life
  • Processor and software updates
  • Audio and speakers
  • Privacy features
  • Display and screen functions
  • Headphone or USB port
  • Wireless charging


Some phone users may prefer certain brands over others, but you may also want to consider looking into other brands to see which one you like best. For instance, if you've always used an iPhone, you might want to try out a Samsung Galaxy phone to see if you like the design or functions better.
