Refurbished grade C means that a product is functional but shows heavy signs of use. A refurbished grade denotes the quality of a refurbished device based on its cosmetic state, previous use and packaging.


A refurbished grade C device features noticeable cosmetic issues. It has passed every functional test, but a grade C device has significant signs of wear and tear. Because of these cosmetic issues, a grade C product is more affordable than a grade A or a grade B device.


A refurbished Grade C phone features significant scratches on its case. A refurbished Grade C laptop features heavy scuffing and marks on the lid, keyboard and/or other areas of its design. On RefurbMe, we simplify the grading system by marking grade C devices as Fair.
