3 Types of Phone Grades Available at CompAsia - CompAsia

You should always know the cosmetic condition of the second-hand gadget you’re purchasing. At CompAsia, we are transparent in categorizing our phones into three grades: Excellent, Good, and Fair. This way, our customers can buy exactly what they're getting even without seeing our products in person.

Take a moment to explore the photo examples we've provided to understand these grades better. Make an informed decision before you click that "Buy Now" button.


An Excellent graded device at CompAsia is the epitome of quality in the second-hand market. These phones are almost indistinguishable from brand-new ones, offering minimal signs of use. Here’s what you can expect from an Excellent graded phone:

  • Screen Condition: Barely visible micro-scratches unless scrutinized closely. When the screen is on, these scratches are practically unnoticeable.
  • Body Condition: Minor signs of wear, including small scratches and possibly minor dents or dings. However, these are not visible from an arm's length away.

Note: The conditions described above represent worst-case scenarios.

Excellent graded devices are perfect if you want a near-new experience at a lower price. These phones offer great looks and performance, with only minor flaws that don't affect their appearance or functionality.


Devices graded as Good offer a balance between affordability and quality. These phones might have more noticeable signs of wear, but nothing that detracts significantly from their overall appeal. Here’s what you can expect from a Good graded phone:

  • Screen Condition: Minor but visible scratches. These scratches are usually not noticeable when the screen is turned on.
  • Body Condition: Visible scratches and possibly some dents. However, these flaws are generally not obvious unless closely examined.

Note: The conditions described above represent worst-case scenarios.

A Good graded device is ideal for those who want a high-quality phone without paying a premium price. The minor imperfections are hardly noticeable during regular use. It’s an excellent choice for everyday reliability and durability.


Fair graded phones are the most budget-friendly option at CompAsia. While these devices show more significant signs of wear, they are fully functional and offer excellent value for money. Here’s what you can expect from a Fair graded phone:

  • Screen Condition: A few prominent scratches that do not affect the functionality or visibility when the screen is on.
  • Body Condition: Some noticeable scratches, visible spots, and possibly some discoloration or dents.

Note: The conditions described above represent worst-case scenarios.

Despite the visible signs of use, Fair graded phones are an excellent choice for those who prioritize savings over aesthetics. You can easily cover up most imperfections with a phone case and enjoy a fully functional device at a significantly reduced cost.
