Apple's iPhone X goes down to unbeatable prices in 64 and 256GB variants on eBay

Apple's iPhone X goes down to unbeatable prices in 64 and 256GB variants on eBay
Commercially released only a little over two years ago, Apple's first-ever "all-screen" handset was officially discontinued back in the fall of 2018. But of course, the iPhone X is still available at major third-party retailers like Best Buy with monthly installment plans for three of the nation's big four carriers, as well as in a certified refurbished condition directly from Apple.

The problem with buying an Apple-sanctioned refurb backed by a full 1-year warranty is that you need to cough up at least $679, which feels like an absurd price to charge for a mobile device powered by a two year-old processor. If you want to easily save a few... hundred bucks, though, all you have to do is get a refurbished unit from top-rated eBay vendors MyWit or BuySpry.

Check out the 64GB and 256GB deals here



The former has a 64GB GSM unlocked variant in silver on sale at a measly $385.99, while the latter can bump up your internal storage space to a whopping 256 gigs in exchange for an additional 14 bucks. BuySpry will also throw in a 60-day warranty with its incredibly affordable space gray 256GB iPhone X in "excellent" condition, but on the not so bright side of things, $400 will only get you AT&T support.

Meanwhile, the 64 gig units sold by MyWit in "good" condition with 100 percent functionality and "significant signs of use like scratches and dents" come equipped with LTE network compatibility for both AT&T and T-Mobile, as well as a 90-day money back promise.

Although it obviously can't keep up with the raw speed delivered by the iPhone 11 family, the iPhone X is certainly no pushover either, packing a more than respectable Apple A11 Bionic SoC. Its 3D facial recognition technology is as fast, reliable, and secure as always, and the 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED display is pretty stunning... once you get past that ghastly notch. You can also rely on the iPhone X to take great pictures with a dual 12MP rear-facing camera system, as well as play loud and clear music and keep the lights on for a more than adequate amount of time on a single 2,716mAh battery charge.

Still a fantastic device and of course prices remain higher as it is pretty much guaranteed updates for at least another 3-4 years, while some of its +$900 launch competitors are already losing OS update support. My Galaxy Note8 is not getting Android 10 and yet my old iPhone X is already on iOS 13, yet these were similarly priced at launch. I gave my Note8 away to a relative as selling it would be near worthless, I was never going to get even a 3rd of its original price, nobody really wants it, while I can still get great money for the iPhone X, still get people offering to take it off my hands at a significant price.

The iPhone X was never a great phone. It was Apple's attempt to catch-up to Android phones and more modern design and it fell way short. As for updates, Apples are always behind and extremely buggy. Features and functionality come to Android first generally and IOS users have to wait a long time, sometimes many years before Apple catch-up. Simply speaking Android phones do not need updates as IOS does, so the comparison is useless. I never buy a phone and sacrifice getting an inferior, outdated product, just because it has an inflated resale price in certain markets if and it is a big if, it survives everyday use. iPhones have always been behind in durability and are exorbitantly expensive to repair, so a theoretically better resale price at purchase date means little.

Exactly the sort of thing an Apple hater would post. You have no interest in Apple clearly but here you are in an Apple topic, LOL! Just get yourself an iPhone X mate, it’s cheap now! :)
