Apple currently sells the iPhone X in refurbished format, starting at $ 769 for the 64GB model. If you want a 256GB configuration, it will cost $ 899. This is less than you pay for the new iPhone XS, and it might be a good option if you are satisfied with the way the 5.8-inch display is hand held.
The iPhone X is smaller than the iPhone XR, but more expensive in refurbished. The XR starts at $ 749. In most cases, buying is smarter. The iPhone X has dual camera setups and OLED displays with higher pixel density (compared to the XR's LCD). However, if you pay a little less for the iPhone XR, you can actually get ahead in a few ways. There are several colors to choose from, and the A12 Bionic chip is identical to what you can find in XS and XS Max. The battery life is really good, and the new Apple Smart Battery Case makes it even better.
If you decide to buy a refurbished iPhone X, you can get a one-year warranty from Apple and arrive in a completely new state.
