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.
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.
