CG Phones. Guess this isn’t much of a surprise since everyone has a phone, sometimes even two or three and everyone is trying to find the best carrier that is out there. But this company is a little bit different though. This company focuses on the smartphone repair industry. Maybe they also figured out that a lot of people get so careless sometimes that they break their phones and they just made a business out of them. What they do is that they buy used, not necessarily broken phones, then they do repairs, recondition it, and basically makes it good as new. They take all types of smartphones except for iPhones. CG Phones have a three-year growth rate of 927% They also made $7.2 million last 2014.
