Apple's iPhone SE drops below $100 with 64GB storage in killer new refurbished deal
It sure looks like that mythical iPhone SE 2 will finally happen early next year, but before getting too excited, hardcore fans of compact handsets should keep in mind this thing is widely expected to draw inspiration from the 4.7-inch iPhone 8

While small by today's standards, that's not exactly on par with the original 4-inch iPhone SE model, which measures a super-diminutive 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm, tipping the scales at a measly 113 grams. Besides, although the iPhone SE 2 (name unconfirmed, by the way) is rumored to start at a fairly reasonable price, that also can't compare with how incredibly cheap its predecessor can often be purchased nowadays.

Case in point, a killer new deal offered by top-rated eBay seller BuySpry, allowing you to pick up a manufacturer refurbished unit for as little as $95.99. That may not sound impressive for those who've been keeping up with Woot's frequent sales on the 2016-released phone, but these are 64GB storage variants we're talking about here rather than entry-level configurations accommodating just 16 gigs of data locally.

Purportedly refurbished by an "authorized official refurbishment facility", the ultra-affordable iPhone SE on sale here is expected to display moderate signs of wear "such as scratches, scuffs, nicks, or dents", but overall, the handset's condition is described as "good." Unfortunately, you'll have to use this pint-sized bad boy on AT&T, as Sprint-locked and GSM unlocked versions are currently listed as out of stock. 

You don't get a lot of saying as far as paint jobs are concerned either, with only gold models available at $95.99 a pop, while silver flavors will set you back an extra four bucks. Powered by an outdated Apple A9 processor, the iPhone SE should still be able to fulfill most day-to-day tasks rather efficiently, sporting a sharp screen with 326 ppi density and packing solid battery life despite its advanced age.
