    Some of the reviews are straight bs, regularly on refurbished or “renewed” products you choose them by grade class, like poor or excellent.

    Most iPhones feel up to date, how ever there are few that i wouldnt take even Apple refurbished. Those are iPhone 6/6s and 7/7 Plus, those have higest rma rate also 7 does have hardware defect that most 7's have that will brick the device and only way to repair is mainboard repair. iPhone 8, X, XS seem to have better hardware reliability than those older ones. I would only take iPhone from reseller that provides 12month warranty for the refurbished device.

    but for some reason this video was kinda offensive to people who do buy second hand/renewed.
    It's as if he just figured out there are people that cannot afford 1000 dollar new iPhone's

    I thought I’d never trust Refurb.
    But it’s all about finding a big Reseller you trust and knowing the difference in Grades.
    iPhones are supported for so long, you can ride the bottom of the tech wave for years getting massive savings.
    Especially if you’re buying for many family members, it’s a no brainer. Although I do buy new devices via contracts paid off early for fam that want the newer tech. But 2/3 years old into a 5/6 years support span is good enough for me.
    Refurb is also a great way to build a cheaper ecosystem. (iPad, phone, watch etc). The Apple Lifestyle doesn’t have to be as expensive as it seems.

    Note: If you replace an iphone battery, there's a chance that the battery health won't even show up. So it's likely legit. A non-apple refurbish would likely result in the loss of the battery health section.

    I got a refurbished iPhone 11 Pro Max off eBay for like $600 just because I really wanted to try a modern iPhone (been Android since Galaxy S5) and I didn't want to spend retail price on it. Everything is okay but not great. I feel like the cameras are slightly off, there is some dust behind one of the lenses, but it doesn't really affect picture quality. Also, the screen is aftermarket so no true-tone. Also, it doesn't feel as buttery smooth to use as some of my friends' phones. It doesn't lag or anything, it's just that the animations are not as smooth as they are on my friends' phones. Could just be placebo.
    Either way, I get 90% of the Apple experience while paying 50% of the price. Sounds good to me.
