Best refurbished iPhone XS Max deals this week
What's the difference between a refurbished iPhone XS Max and a brand-new model?
A refurbished phone is an unwanted handset that has been returned to a mobile supplier or network for whatever reason - possibly due to a fault or the owner simply changed their mind.
If it’s refurbished, it means the phone has been restored to its factory settings and given a thorough maintenance check and repair.
Why choose second-hand over a brand-new model?
Here’s a few reasons why you might want to opt for a refurbished phone:
- You'll save money. One of the great things about refurbished phones is that, because they aren't fresh out of the box, they will be cheaper than a newer model.
- Warranty. If you buy from an established retailer or one of the major networks, you’ll likely get a warranty. The warranty usually lasts around 12-months, though the time period will vary depending on the manufacturer.
- Lots of choice. Buying refurbished means you'll get lots of choice over devices, network and allowance.
- It's eco-friendly. Naturally, recycling phones is better for the environment too.

Is the refurbished iPhone XS Max worth buying?
As we’re essentially looking at the bigger sibling of the iPhone XS, the XS Max flaunts its predecessor’s riches to grand effect, albeit with a massive 6.5-inch screen. Boasting a high-end OLED display, it’s the XS Max’s biggest selling point, and Apple’s biggest screen to date - perfect if you’re a gamer or enjoy Netflix catch-ups on the morning commute.
The XS Max is also fitted with a powerful A12 Bionic processor, which means increased battery life and enables apps to launch 30% faster. Anyone looking to upgrade from an older iPhone will notice a real difference in performance.
Keen photographers will love the XS Max’s strong camera functionality; an impressive wide-angle camera boasts a 12 megapixel (MP) dual camera system and smart HDR. Improved facial recognition software, huge storage options, Apple’s new “Dual SIM Dual Stand By” and the choice of gold, black and silver, make the XS Max a very attractive proposition.
However, the XS Max’s size might not be for everyone - it’s huge. It’s also a heavy phone and is very, very expensive.
