Right now on Amazon you can pick up refurbished Apple iPhone Xs for up to 45% off in multiple configurations. The best deal is the aforementioned 45% discount, for the 256GB variant in “best condition”. Now just $245, which is $204.99 off its $449.99 list price.. As a reminder, the Xs originally started at $999 for the 64 GB version. iPhone X is still supported for iOS 16.
Here’s a reminder of the phone’s highlights:
The iPhone X was the direct successor to the iPhone X, coming in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB storage tiers with a 5.8-inch OLED screen. It includes a Super Retina 458ppi screen that offers 60% more dynamic range for better colors on your photos and videos.
The bodies are made of “surgical grade stainless steel”. Apple also says the glass is the most durable ever seen in a smartphone. The devices are powered by Apple’s custom-designed A12 chip. The SoC includes a six-core CPU, a quad-core GPU, and even has a dedicated neural engine. The Neural Engine, like Huawei’s Neural Processing Unit, can handle five trillion AI operations per second, where the A11 Bionic can handle 600 billion.
The A12 was Apple’s first 7nm processor, while Qualcomm’s latest chip, the Snapdragon 845, was 10nm at the time of shipping in 2019, while Intel was still using 14nm and AMD 12nm.
The rear camera features a 12MP lens for lossless 2x zoom and a 12MP telephoto lens. Both lenses have optical image stabilization, and apertures are f/1.8 and f/2.4.
The front-facing camera is a seven-megapixel sensor with an f/2.2 sensor, and Apple says it’s faster. Combined with the IR camera, it can do portrait mode, just like the iPhone X.
There is dual SIM support, one of which is physical and the other is embedded. However this example is unlocked, so you can put whatever you want into it. However, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon also have several options locked.
