    by refurbished by Apple…go to the Apple site and scroll down to the bottom and look for the small refurbished link…Apple refurbishes their phones and gives them a brand new shell and 100 % battery and you receive in a sealed Apple box with all the cable and charger … they look brand new Typically you will be able to buy these from the Apple site for about 40 percent off

    Buy your refurbs direct from Apple, they take a used logic board and put into a whole new housing and reprogram everything professionally. You also get a new factory seal so you keep water resistance. Buy refurbished from apple.. you’re getting a brand new phone essentially.

    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23) When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (Mark 2:17) For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death. (2 Corinthians 7:10) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5)

    People with cheap phones tend to be more humble. I feel bad they have to use a device that's 4-6 years old. I almost wanna buy them a new of-the-year phone. But, they say "no, I'm good with this one. I always tell them "but, you DESERVE better, don't you think?" And they always say no. My guess is they can't afford the newer models, so they're just happy they have a phone at all and plan to use it until it dies completely.

    Based on my actual experience, I bought a refurbished iPhone 8 December 2020 as my iPhone 6S after almost 4yrs of using it, the battery can no longer serve ny daily tasks. Its not worth buying it. Cellular signal are not functioning properly so I cannot send and receive text message on time, always delayad and making calls always disconnects and unclear. Consolation were the rest of functionalities are running okay. Felt it was a total waste so I bought a new iPhone XR yesterday (I got it on a sale and good deals) and now I know I’m good.

    I do think tech reviewers get de-sensitised to reviewing products on a regular basis, especially high end expensive stuff. They don't bat an eyelid to it. They become almost snobs to us mere mortals who have a limited budget to buy stuff with. When they do a review like above, they're shocked and surprised that - yes - you can indeed buy a perfectly good refurbished device at an affordable price, and it works! I've bought numerous laptops, phones and desktop PCs over the years that were refurbs, and the specs are super at a discounted price. My machines have always looked pristine bar some microscopic scratches that you'd never notice, but otherwise works like a brand new machine. I've never been happier with them. But I do think there's an essence of snobbery from tech reviewers who are so used to reviewing Megabucks tech, that they forget that cheaper or older models are just as acceptable for the average person out there. Don't be like Lew. Be yourself and stick within your budget xx 🙂
