    Most iPhones feel up to date, how ever there are few that i wouldnt take even Apple refurbished. Those are iPhone 6/6s and 7/7 Plus, those have higest rma rate also 7 does have hardware defect that most 7's have that will brick the device and only way to repair is mainboard repair. iPhone 8, X, XS seem to have better hardware reliability than those older ones. I would only take iPhone from reseller that provides 12month warranty for the refurbished device.

    Unbox Therapy is good at reviewing the newest shiniest products , but for some reason this video was kinda offensive to people who do buy second hand/renewed. It's as if he just figured out there are people that cannot afford 1000 dollar new iPhone's

    I understand it for an average consumer. For the person going for top of the line, brand spanking new they aren’t gonna buy this. But for someone who maybe broke their phone, and doesn’t wanna spend $1000 for a new one this is a good option

    I’ve only had mediocre experiences with refurbished products, and I’ve frequently had bad ones too. Others may have better luck, but I’m done with trying to save a few bucks by purchasing refurbished goods of any type.

    I thought I’d never trust Refurb. But it’s all about finding a big Reseller you trust and knowing the difference in Grades. iPhones are supported for so long, you can ride the bottom of the tech wave for years getting massive savings. Especially if you’re buying for many family members, it’s a no brainer. Although I do buy new devices via contracts paid off early for fam that want the newer tech. But 2/3 years old into a 5/6 years support span is good enough for me. Refurb is also a great way to build a cheaper ecosystem. (iPad, phone, watch etc). The Apple Lifestyle doesn’t have to be as expensive as it seems.

    • MyVideoMix

      PS. I know the flexibility, variety, feature pushing specs and value in the Android world. Respect. I’m just an Apple kinda guy. You know, the type; black turtle necks, Birkenstock’s, IDM music and obnoxiously minimal graphic design. Lol. “Sent from my iPhone” (SE1/2016).

    Note: If you replace an iphone battery, there's a chance that the battery health won't even show up. So it's likely legit. A non-apple refurbish would likely result in the loss of the battery health section.

    I got a refurbished iPhone 11 Pro Max off eBay for like $600 just because I really wanted to try a modern iPhone (been Android since Galaxy S5) and I didn't want to spend retail price on it. Everything is okay but not great. I feel like the cameras are slightly off, there is some dust behind one of the lenses, but it doesn't really affect picture quality. Also, the screen is aftermarket so no true-tone. Also, it doesn't feel as buttery smooth to use as some of my friends' phones. It doesn't lag or anything, it's just that the animations are not as smooth as they are on my friends' phones. Could just be placebo. Either way, I get 90% of the Apple experience while paying 50% of the price. Sounds good to me.

    I got a refurbished iphone x from black market website not actually a illegal market. They put a brand new screen and battery in there i had 100% battery health. You can choose if you want a more used version. I recommend the xr because the x battery life is trash. Honestly the note is the best phone out rn tho.
