Check out this absolute iPhone XS steal (brand-new, warranty included)
Technically discontinued on the heels of the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max announcements just a few months ago, the fall 2018-released iPhone XS and XS Max are naturally still available through authorized third-party retailers like Best Buy, as well as major US carriers including AT&T and T-Mobile.

Some of these official Apple retail partners had the Apple A12 Bionic-powered handsets on sale at hefty discounts around the holidays, but of course, all that is finished now, so the smaller XS variant once again goes for a whopping $900 and up with unlocked support for nationwide mobile network operators at the likes of Best Buy.

Check out the deal here

Luckily, Daily Steals comes to the rescue of bargain hunters interested in a reasonably priced iPhone with loads of horsepower and a compact screen (at least by "modern" standards), selling the 64GB XS model for as little as $649.99. Don't worry if you see the handset listed at 50 bucks more when clicking on the link above, as applying the discount code "DSIPHONEXS" to your order during checkout will lower the $699.99 price to the aforementioned 650 clams.

Despite what the website's name suggests, this doesn't appear to be a 24-hour-only deal, although it's probably a good idea to hurry and pull the trigger as soon as possible if saving $250 (no, not $350) on a factory unlocked iPhone XS sounds appealing. These are brand-new units on sale here, mind you, with a 1-year warranty included, retail packaging, all the standard accessories you'd expect from a device sold directly by Apple (official charging cable and EarPods included), and full support for GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile, as well as Verizon (no love for Sprint devotees, unfortunately).

Available in a single Space Gray paint job at 650 bucks, the iPhone XS looks pretty much identical on the outside to the newer 11 Pro, minus that third rear-facing camera. On the inside, the XS naturally comes with an older processor, as well as a smaller battery, but we had no complaints in either department when rigorously reviewing the phone back in the fall of 2018, and at the aforementioned discount, you'll probably be very satisfied these days too.

How is a old phone at $650 a steal?

not really old though, when you consider it was a galaxy s10+ competitor and it also goes against the pixel 4, 650USD down from 1000USD is quite a bargain for a lot of people, considering it still performs just as well as all the android phones this year (a12 is pretty much on par with 855+ afaik)
