    sorry to make a separate thread but....

    looking at the iphone X, $599 for refurb seems high to me. When the 12 comes out, how much will the price drop? $399? Phone would be 3 years (phone releases old)

    I'm new to apple world and coming from android, the prices drop fast and of course dropped support.

    What gb size is that one? The base price of the iPhone X new, was $1,000. It's possible it might drop by $100 this fall. No clue. A refurb is a good phone. A lot different than buying used, like on eBay or somewhere. The iPhone X should continue to be supported with the latest OS for several more years.

    64gb...apple puts in new battery and outer case, so there shouldn't be any scratches or etc?

    Yes, exactly. Comes with the standard one-year warranty as well.

    what about swappa? Would it be comparable or still not in the same "league" as straight from apple. I see iphone X and iphone XS with a $500 and below price, with mint condition.

    I think an Apple refurbished product would be worth the extra. You really don’t know the history of a second hand phone bought off a website.

    that is a good point. as tempting as other sites are, apple may be the best bet...maybe the price will go down in the fall on refurbs.

    (FB has a iphone x 256gb for $500...looks new and imei can clean)

    I agree with this. And as @BreakingKayfabe pointed out, it would come with a standard one-year warranty.
