    5.0 out of 5 stars Most reasonable iPhone
    They originally called the IPhone SE “the cockroach” because it just wouldn’t die….

    So many people went back to repurchase the IPhone SE that apple was forced to keep providing it, apple wants everybody to get their new iPhone but after the SE millions of people realized they didn’t want to move onto something different, they wanted the same great reliable phone.

    This phone is the perfect size in my opinion, the “plus” sized phones are basically iPads at that point, and anything smaller than the SE wouldn’t give you the satisfying size and weight for your hand.

    This phone gets the job done if you need a phone for calling/texting and searching the internet. Yes it watches video fine and yes it can play games, but this phone isn’t the best at either of those 2 things.

    The iPhone 14 plus cost around 1400-1600$ depending on the specs and this phone costs 170-200$…. 7-1 phone ratio. Imagine replacing an iPhone 14 plus twice… yes you can get “protection” for your phone but that takes days and in some cases weeks to get fixed or replaced. Not to mention the daily stress lurking with every moment is 7x what you should reasonably experience with this SE gen 2.

    If you are buying this phone you are a realist, you understand the limitations: you won’t be taking the BEST photos, you won’t be playing games at the BEST fps you won’t have ALL the features available, it what do you have? You have reliability and security that the phone can be replaced at the drop of a hat and the phone will easily take care of all the basic functions.

    10/10 and apple is going to come out with the SE gen 4 and more because people love this phone so much.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Double Check That it Works!

    I contacted the seller (Hybrid IT) and they were extremely responsive. I confirmed that the phone did not work on arrival and started the refund process. It took about a week after I shipped it for them to get it and the refund to be issued. I purchased another phone from the same exact seller and this one had 100% battery life and worked perfectly. Make sure you READ the email that the seller sends you because mine had return information on it. In order to get a guaranteed 100% refund, I needed to contact them within 48 hours of delivery to let them know the phone was DOA. So check your phone ASAP. It took setting up my phone fully to find the problems.

    Kudos to Hybrid IT for being easy to work with. I am glad I did not purchase from the first seller that Amazon suggested, because it was a few dollars less but didn’t have the free Prime shipping/return. It had free shipping but the seller had terrible reviews. Hybrid IT had great reviews and was a great seller to work with. Do your due diligence and check out the seller information!

    Like many other reviewers, one of the phones I purchased did not work. I am currently in the return process. I bought mine through Amazon’s prime link, and it has free returns. The company I am working with is Hybrid IT. Depending on how the return process goes, I may increase my rating for the phone. My phone was not fully unlocked and the power button did not work consistently. I am willing to give it another shot because it is a phone for a youth, so hopefully the return process is easy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Price for an Amazing Product
    I bought my iPhone SE 2 for $135, and I was shocked to see that there was no problem with it whatsoever. It feels new for a refurbished product and shows no sign of wear and tear, even the battery life is at 100%. The phone itself is definitely a great buy in itself, with its great performance and impressive cameras that would put some older flagships to shame (4k 60hz back and 1080p 30hz front). The phone flys through IOS and has a nice home button that makes it much easier to use for those not so tech-savvy. Overall, the retailer is one of quality and the phone is a great choice for those on a budget (from my experience)

    4.0 out of 5 stars Buen dispositivo, mala batería
    Es un muy buen dispositivo si sabes por lo que estas pagando.. Excelente procesador por su precio, pierdes en tamaño de pantalla y resolución, en cámara, en tecnología y más que nada en batería. Lo compre renewed y llego en perfecto estado con la batería al 92% pero lamentablemente se degrado demasiado rápido en 6 meses la batería ya marcaba 80% y de allí solo fue empeorando.. Un buen dispositivo si sabes pros y contras.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The near new-refurbished phone description was exactly right
    My wife’s old iPhone was crapping out so I figured to buy this near new-refurbished unlocked replacement of a newer variety/version to keep things simple with a quick move of her sim card and download from the Apple cloud for all her aps, etc. Great price when seeing what new iPhones go for. The phone was in far better condition than expected for the price paid. Really quick delivery too.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Does what I need it to
    I bought this because I needed a new phone. My 5SE finally died after seven years. Anyway, this was the next thing from that for me. It’s a little bit big, but unfortunately I can’t find one as small as the one I had. This a good phone, however, and it has a good amount of space. It’s a nice looking phone but I put a phone case around it so you can’t really see it. I am an iPhone person, so I don’t know how it compares to other brands.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect phone for someone like me.
    I previously purchased from Amazon Renewed an iPhone 5s, and was satisfied with it considering the price was barely over one hundred dollars. That phone, however, was originally released in 2013, and at 8 years old it was getting hard to justify its continued use.

    So when the new iPhone SE (2020) was released I was really tempted to get it, but the pandemic had basically stopped any purchasing of anything for me at the time. Now in September of 2021, with the battery in my old phone failing, it was time to do something.

    I decided to check out what Amazon might have in their “renewed” products and was surprised to find that they now have “Renewed Premium”, which offers a year’s satisfaction guarantee. That meant, in my mind, I could send this thing back if it wasn’t good or turned out to be a lemon, so I sprung for it.

    First of all, this one came in a nice box, oversized, and obviously sturdy enough to protect everything inside. It comes with an information packet describing what “premium” means, along with a quick start guide. The inclusion of a standard wall charger was nice, but I have a number of chargers already, not to mention my iPad Pro charger. I’ll get back to that in a minute.

    Another thing that was nice to have included was a tool for removing the SIM card tray. Nice, but it turns out that with the new iPhone SE you can use eSIM! More on that as well in a minute.

    Now first of all… This phone looks gorgeous. The red color and the black front make for an awesome combination. All surfaces are smooth as if it was a brand new phone. Turning it on shows the screen is working perfectly, with even back lighting all across to each corner.

    The first thing I checked was the “battery health”. Amazon promises that with their renewed premium phones the battery would at least be at ninety percent of capacity, so I immediately checked.

    Ninety-eight percent! Eight percent better than what they promised. Not bad at all!

    So it turns out that this phone supports fast charging. So that means my phone gets charged on the desk where my iPad Pro sits, because the charger for that is a high capacity charger. The iPhone SE charges up easily in a little over an hour, which means no need to plug it in over night. In fact, I plug it in before bed, but it’s plugged into an outlet controlled by Alexa and that wont come on till in the morning. The phone charges up to capacity before I go to work!

    Now for setting up the service, the iPhone SE (2020) supports eSIM, which means getting set up with Mint Mobile (or any service that supports eSIM) was as easy as… Well, I went to Mint Mobile’s website, checked my location, checked phone compatibility, chose my service plan, then chose eSIM at check out. A few minutes later a QR code appeared on the screen of my computer that I scanned with the iPhone SE, and a few seconds later I had 4G/LTE and everything ready to go.

    eSIM is the way to go. It is, just trust me on that.

    After about a week of using the phone, on some days like I normally do and on other day literally trying to cause it run dry of battery or trying to get it to malfunction, this little phone is holding up way better than I could have anticipated. I believe I can safely say my iPhone 5s can be retired for good.

    By the way. Get a cover. This phone has a glass back, which means it can be charged wirelessly, but it also means you can break it easily. I got a simple transparent back cover with a raised bezel around the edges. It cost about 9 dollars, came in the same day as the phone.

    I would recommend this phone and the Amazon Renewed Premium program. Yes the cost of the phone was more than it would have been with renewed only, but being able to return the phone for up to a year is worth it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars iPhone SE – 64bg/ white
    Great quality phone and looks good! Battery capacity is at 91%. However, I noticed that the battery never charged to 100%. It gets stuck/won’t go past 99%. That said, I have not seen any major issues with battery performance. I will observe it for a few more days before I decide to keep/ return.

    I will definitely recommend this phone to those who are considering buying it! Just keep an eye out for such issues (if any).

    5.0 out of 5 stars A+ on “premium refurbished “ iphone
    A+, these “premium refurbished “ cost me more than the “refurbished “. Aare not the latest models but are affordable & work just fine for me. Cons: had to wait cuz it took longer to ship (several weeks). Pros: saved $$ not buying a new one, battery shows 100%, I updated software on it automatically, found no visible scratches on body or screen, includes the 365day return.

    5.0 out of 5 stars LIKE NEW (86% BATTERY, LASTS)
    Extremely pleased with the phone. Updating from a 2016 SE which quit working properly. The larger screen is nice. No longer lugging my iPad around (I like to research everything, plus use the maps on the larger screen). Apple quality at a steep discount. Love it! Got one for my husband also. I could afford a new phone, but why? This is smarter.
