Yes, it's old, but the Galaxy Note 8 is also crazy cheap in 'good' condition right now
This may come as a shock to Android power users, but buying the 2017-released Galaxy Note 8 in 2019 is not necessarily a bad idea. There, we said it and stand by that claim... as long as you purchase the ancient S Pen-wielding powerhouse at a large enough discount. 

Priced at a whopping $900 back at launch and inexplicably sold for that much by Samsung today as well, the Note 8 recently dropped to a seemingly irresistible $400 for 24 hours only. Believe it or not, the GSM unlocked phone is available at an even lower $284.99 right now from a top-rated eBay seller, although it's not exactly fair to compare this killer new deal with that aforementioned Woot bargain.

That's because Woot was charging 400 bucks for brand-new units backed by full one-year manufacturer's warranties, while BuySpry has refurbished devices on sale today at $115 less with 60-day seller warranties included. On the bright side, you're apparently looking at 100 percent functional products in "good" cosmetic condition (rated 7 out of 10), with moderate signs of wear like scratches, scuffs, and "minor dents."

That doesn't sound so bad for such a crazy cheap handset with a beautiful 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display in tow (no notch, no holes, razor-thin bezels), a fast Snapdragon 835 processor, more than decent 6GB RAM, 64 gigs of internal storage space (expandable via microSD), dual 12MP rear-facing cameras, 3,300mAh battery capacity, and of course, a built-in stylus for enhanced productivity and creativity.

..you forgot to mention the two year old battery! Which when new wasn't a stellar performer to begin with. That's what makes this a bad deal

Its not that old ; this phone is from 2017 ; I have one...The problem is that I'm not going to get any major updates ; probably that's why is so cheap.

Bruh. That's a terrible deal. You can literally get a new LG V30 for under $200. Same Snapdragon 835.
