No longer sold directly by Apple as a brand-new, unused, and untouched device, the 2017-released iPhone X
can still be an extremely smart buy at a decent discount with upfront carrier activation
or in refurbished condition
from the likes of Woot and various top-rated eBay sellers.
BuySpry is undoubtedly part of the latter group, boasting a near-perfect 99.4 percent positive feedback score based on more than 17,000 ratings from the last 12 months alone. The highly trusted seller currently has the iPhone X
on special offer in both 64 and 256GB storage configurations, fetching as little as $611.99. That's a whopping 288 bucks off the list price of a brand-new unlocked 64 gig model, and BuySpry vows to deliver an item in "excellent condition", supporting GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile with 100 percent functionality.
You won't have to pay anything extra for standard nationwide shipping or a 60-day seller warranty while obviously also qualifying for free and effortless 30-day returns. Available color options include silver and space gray, which are the same paint jobs you can get a heavily discounted 256GB iPhone X variant in. That digital hoarding-friendly configuration is only 14 bucks costlier, qualifying for the same 60-day BuySpry warranty and free standard shipping policy as the 64 gig model.
The difference is the "manufacturer refurbished" 256 gig units come in "very good" condition, which is apparently a slightly poorer rating than the "excellent" condition of the 64GB devices on sale today. These are also described as "100% functional", showing however clear signs of wear like "scratches, scuffs, and minor dents" rather than just exhibiting "light scuffs or marks from handling."
Nonetheless, a 256GB factory GSM unlocked iPhone X
at $625.99 seems like an incredible bargain, what with its modern design, water-resistant build, stunning 5.8-inch OLED screen, powerful Apple A11 Bionic processor, excellent battery life, and versatile dual rear camera setup. In case you're wondering, the same configuration of the same device costs a whopping $899 in refurbished condition over at Apple, while Best Buy typically charges $1,049 for a brand-new unlocked 256 gig unit.
