Where to buy USED tablets and smart phones in Taipei?

Hi

is there an area where I can buy some used Tablets and smart phones ,

Probably trade ins , 1 year or so old ?

The kids are real hard on electronics , so if they are going to break them they might as well be used ,

is there an ASUS outlet store ?

thanks for your help

there are some facebook groups where people sell them. taipei buy sell trade, taipei buy sell electronics. you could post a question there

I highly suggest Electronics Market Taiwan run by Tomas Perez. https://www.facebook.com/groups/548703211876107/

I’ve never bought anything from there, but I hear you have to go through Tomas himself to be able to post ads there.

Good luck!

Ruten is a great great and secure place to buy used items, but is a nightmare for anyone that does not hold a local ID number.

I thought getting my ARC would solve this problem, but no change. Only go the Ruten route if you have a trusted local friend/significant other to make the purchase for you.

Need a CHEAP (1-2K) used crappy smartphone with not-too-old Android (can run WeChat and Line). Business Trip to China Monday, can’t find my old Android phone - don’t want to buy online since I need it like “now”, but from a brick-and-mortar store. I’m located in Nangang, where would be a good place or area to go?

One earlier post seems to refer to Guanghua, but I’m not sure where they would sell used stuff around there…

Yep, they have a couple big used good stores right on Xinsheng section 1,on this block, before the pharmacy:

They are on second floor, so look for a staircase

Thanks a lot for the hints. I can confirm that in the “Old” building of the Guanghua Digital Plaza (Not the Syntrend building) there are indeed some booths selling used phones.

I ended up not buying one, simply because my wife had a great idea: Why not I just use her old phone, for free? (And I buy her a new one) :laughing:
