This doesn’t really make sense. When Apple refurbishes a phone, it entails a quality stringent test to make sure there are no issues, and usually receives a new battery, display, etc. The point is, a refurbished phone is less likely to have issues over a new phone that is mass produced out of a Foxconn factory, because those refurbished phones are overhauled and tested thoroughly.
Dude, you miss his point. LOL
People are knocking the X bc it’s older and XR is newer but I mean the X still costs more money my guess is because it’s better(?).
Yep. And it certainly is.
Displays more content. Main camera miles better.
But the killer feature is the battery. It’s out of this world.
XR it is
I see what you’re saying, but who is ‘knocking the X’? I have never read a complaint where someone was ‘knocking’ the X without a valid argument, I have read where others are not in agreeance that the 2017 X is not appropriately priced in Apple’s refurbished store. Do you think average consumer really even knows the differences between OLED versus LCD, ect, I mean they’re highly similar in the sense that they have a similar form factor, they both offer Face ID, wireless charging, etc. Realistically, most customers don’t even know the Apple is even offering the X as a refurbished device, considering the XR is being heavily promoted at this point through carriers and Apple. Consumers make purchasing decisions based off price points and what Apple wants them to see. The major differentiation for the XR, is the battery life.
Might I add
- Bigger display.
- Better gaming performance, both peak and sustain.
- Newer processor thus longer iOS support.
- More useable portrait mode in low light and also tight spaces.
- Great color options.
