These cheap iPhone 11 deals are TOO GOOD to miss

Pick up a cheap iPhone 11 deal this Black Friday and enjoy some of the best Apple has to offer for less

There's one very good reason to be hunting for an iPhone 11 deal this Black Friday. Even on the big day itself, the iPhone 13 doesn’t attract hugely big price drops, and nor does the older iPhone 12.

If you’re prepared to go older still, however, the iPhone 11 is now an absolute bargain, if you’re happy to purchase a refurbished model from Giffgaff.

Prices range from £329 for a “good” 64GB model, all the way up to £539 for a “like new” 128GB version.

Where you go on the scale should depend on how fussy you are, and how much you need to store locally. Remember that iPhones have never allowed microSD expansion, and the iPhone 11 is no different, although iCloud storage is relatively cheap if you need.

As for which grade you should pick, it’s clear that “good” is a risk. Giffgaff describes this grade as having “noticeable wear and tear” with potential for marks on both the body and screen.

  
Upping to “very good” (£379 for 64GB, or £409 for 128GB) promises a “pristine screen” with “light marks” on the body, so ideal for those who plan on getting a case of some kind.

“Excellent” grading (£399 for 64GB, £439 for 128GB) promises phones that have only seen light use with “pristine” body and screens, while “like new” (£469 for 64GB or £539 for 128GB) suggests phones that have been returned unused.

If you feel like taking a chance on the £329 model, it’s worth noting that Giffgaff offers a 21-day no-quibble return policy, so you can always send it back if it’s not up to snuff.

The big question is whether the iPhone 11 is worth buying in 2021? My honest answer is that it probably is, yes. The Apple A13 Bionic chip that powers it was miles ahead of Android’s Snapdragon 855 equivalent in 2019, and it still packs a punch today, offering solid day to day and 3D performance.

Add to that the fact that Apple offers iOS software updates for many years after its phones are released, and you should have a handset that’s got a good bit of life left in it yet.
