Very good.

When you replace a damaged phone at the Apple store, they actually give you a refreshed one

Hi Lisa, the refreshed or refurbished phones are in as good of quality as a new phone or better as they are gone over when refurbished with a fine toothed comb making sure everything works correctly,where the mass produced ones are quickly checked. Cosmetically they are no different as brand new.

Thanks Dennis!  I'm looking at the refreshed iPhone 7 offered on Koodo online. Since it's not from an Apple store but from Koodo, would it still have the same good quality?

Yes it should be the same quality and would be warrentied by Apple the same.

Refreshed is Koodo's weird term
Bascially the same as refurbished or certified preowned

As long as it is directly from Apple, and having 1 year manufacturer warranty, then you are good. Apple refurbished devices quality has been proven.

Yes, I once got a refurbished iPhone from Koodo (not Apple) and it was just perfect... no difference in quality except it was shipped in a different box.
Apple and Koodo refurbished iPhones are not the same.
Unlike Mobile Masters claim, there is a low chance but it is actually possible that Koodo will send you a phone that is not like new or perfect; scratches, dust under the screen, dead pixels, etc. but you can return it or ask for a replacement. [i]Firsthand experience.

Hi! I'm also looking into a refurbished phone from koodo, and I was just wondering if they will 100% replace it if you're not happy or if I might be stuck with a phone that I don't think is a good enough quality? Its totally okay if you don't know the answer, I just thought I'd ask in case you did. Thanks!

You have 15 days to return a phone for any reason, except if you physically damage it during that time.
