On a budget? Grab an iPhone 6s for $185, get the most bang for your buck

Buy Here

Apple still sells the iPhone 6s as an affordable, "mid-range" iPhone option if you will. And it's still pretty great — it has the amazing Taptic engine for vibration feedback, it has 3D Touch, and it still sports a headphone jack. You get to use Touch ID and even the home button is a mechanical, clicking thing, instead of a simulation. So, basically, if you're more of a fan of how Apple used to make phones, the 6s is a cool toy to have.

So, here we have an A-grade refurbished iPhone 6s for $185. That's the kind of money you'd pay for a low midrange or even entry-level phone and it's a budget range where the iPhone 6s' performance and camera are hard to beat. Granted, it's a 16 GB model, so you will have to be really careful with your storage usage. And, considering Apple is still selling these in its own store, it's reasonable to expect that it'd be getting updates for a while still.

Why is this a deal? Well, you can find a lot of 6s units for $200 and less nowadays, but those are usually B-grade or worse and sold by less-known resellers. This deal here is by Newegg and the listing claims you will get a very clean device with a minimum amount of normal-use scratches. There's no money back policy, but you have 30 days to replace the device with another one, if you so wish.

Not only that it's only got 16 gb of storage. iOS grew a lot to the point that 16 gb is not enough for anything these days. That's why Apple started with the iPhone 7's only made iPhones with 32 gb or above. Starting with the iPhone 8's they started with 64 gb of storage. You can buy a 32 gb Moto G6 for that price, and it can do 4k video recording, and has 2 rear cameras, a higher resolution 1080x2160 resolution display for almost the same price as this thing. You will be throwing good money down the toilet if you buy this iPhone.

It’s a utilitarian design that’s worked (well) for years. When you make a great design that’s easy to hold and use, why change? It’s certainly a lot better than the “form over function” of Samsung’s Infinite ghost touch display, that’s for sure.

Don't you mean ghost touch display from some of the iPhones, or is that touch disease.

This would have been a perfect choice to replace my backup 5s (which I can sell for at least 120€, making this a 40€ deal; the price of 6s today is only 185$/160€); too bad they only deliver in US.

I still use an iPhone 6S Plus and to this day it has always been reliable, very fast and offers a still very good picture quality and a nice display... It's a 128GB model though... Couldn't see myself using a 16GB phone...

It's a 3 year old phone with very limited storage. I know Apple is good about updates, but I could never recommend this to someone.

Or you can get a 32GB 6S from MetroPCS for $49 + $10 activation + $50 first month service + $30 using an eBay unlocking service. Note that you have to port in a number to get this deal. Then if you subscribe to Comcast, you can then port this from MetroPCS (after you unlock the phone) to Xfinity Mobile and get $150 back, essentially making the phone free.

After installing a few apps and taking some pictures, you're done with this 16GB version. It's a trap. :P

Well i bought an iPhone 6S for my wife for 200$ and it is an awesome phone. The camera holds its own, battery is OK, it’s fast, reliable and it will support updates for at least a couple of years. And for some reason apple handles storage a little more carefully then other manufacturers so yes 16GB is enough for most people.
