    Is still true iphones starting with Serial C are the best quality ones, the ones with D are the worst ones and the F ones are between the two?
    Are the at@t ones using Inel basband chip and they are slower?

    A buying guide would be appreciated, I d like a proper replacement for my Iphone 6s Serial C with TSMC chip...

    AT&T models will always come with the Intel baseband.

    C = crap

    How about the unlocked ones? But even if it has slower intel chip, the power consumption might better, so overall we get longer battery lifespan.

    Glad to hear F ones are flawless.

    My launch day F had overheating and GPS issues. Flawless and perfect dont exist on a mass produced item by 8 year old children in China.

    I have one I bought from an authorised reseller. Works flawlessly. There are letters and numbers on it.

    so you're expecting to sell it for more than full retail price? makes no sense even if its sealed. and if you bought it with a contract then you're scamming people. good luck with that.

    people buy phones to extend contract then sell. Contract aren't tied to phones anymore.

    That is not how it works anymore. You don't need to buy a phone to extend your contract, you just continue paying your bill. If you want to "extend" your contract then you do installment plans.

    you're trying to scam someone.

    good luck with that because you'll get less than retail. no one will pay what you paid when they can just look up online when the stores will have what model they want, and it'll be unopened and brand new to them, you already opened it. so it lost value.
