Apple iPhone SE 16GB Rose Gold (Pink) O2, Refurbished Good £99.99 @ MusicMagpie

Update as at 23:00 3rd March 2018:
O2 is out of stock. The cheapest iPhone SE deal on MusicMagpie is currently £109.99 for an Apple iPhone SE 16GB Rose Gold (Pink) Tesco, Refurbished Good (still with 6% Topcashback), as mentioned by Holdol. Refurbished Very Good (for the same phone) is £139.99. MusicMagpie's search is orderable by price, but doesn't factor in discounts, so lower-listed phones may be cheaper after discount.

Original deal:
£119.99 with £20 off at the checkout. Potentially a further 6% (really 5% as no cashback on VAT, so £5) with Topcashback or Quidco (site offering best deal varies). Thought some might like to take a chance on the condition of this (cover up any scratches or even the colour with a case?). I received one of these, but didn't like the condition. For me, "good" roughly means "acceptable". Their "Very Good" iPhone SEs are available from £140. MusicMagpie state in their FAQ that "All returns are dealt with on an order-by-order basis".

MusicMagpie offer a 12 Month warranty on their tech items. Locked to O2, unlocking costs from about £5 on ebay.

The iPhone SE has similar internal hardware to the iPhone 6s. Both are still being sold by Apple. The end of Apple support for this device should be later than the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 6, which are still both supported.

The iPhone 6s has it's own deal, where it was available from £139.99.

For MusicMagpie itself, if you return it, "All returns are dealt with on an order-by-order basis" according to their FAQ. Which might mean they don't charge you.

More expensive iPhones are available IOS takes up approx 4.5GB, so there's some space for some photos, apps and music. A little will need to be put by for IOS and app updates.

Tesco and Giffgaff users won't need to unlock (as O2 provide their networks). It's not clear to how O2 deal with secondhand phones going to other networks, but O2 charge pay as you go customers £15 to unlock if you've been with them for 12 months, or it is free on a pay monthly tariff. You might want to use ebay to save money.

I think it should come with a cable at least, and you might (probably?) get lucky with a charger? It there wasn't even a cable, customers couldn't test them.

How many up from 5s is this? Is it worth changing?

It's a 6s in a 5's body

It still has some features from the 5S such as the front camera and screen however it has the power of an iPhone 6S well worth the upgrade from a 5S you'll certainly notice the speed boost. Highly recommend going with the 64GB version with how big apps are getting now.
Bargain. Thanks op just bought one.
These are great phones, however 16gb just isn’t enough for most users. If you’re not installing too many apps and streaming music, taking a few photos etc. It might be ok

You'll notice quite a bump in performance. It is still faster than 80% or so of all new Android phones out there, you won't be disappointed.

I do like this Wiki table that shows how long iPhones have been supported for. The iPhone 5 was supported for 4y 11m (the longest yet, the 4s was for 4y 10m). The iPhone 5s has been supported since Sept 2013 for 4y 5m (possibly 6 months until updates end?). The iPhone 6s (which shares much of the SE's hardware) has been supported since Sept 2015, for 2y 5m. There might be 2y 6m left for the 6s and maybe the SE.

I has the same chipset as the iPhone 6S, but because it has a smaller screen, the SE is slightly more powerful. Also because of the smaller screen, the battery lasts 20% longer than the 6S (provided you get one with a battery in decent condition)

Yeah I would say 5s won't support ios 12. It's quite slow on ios 11 as it is. SE on the other hand is a really good buy at this price. Not only that, it has 2gb of ram which makes a difference at this age. Meanwhile 6 only has 1gb and I can't see that being supported much longer, it already feels slow to be honest.

The oldest SEs (16GB/64GB models) were launched in March 2016, so the batteries hopefully won't have degraded too much.

more than 75 heat since it went oos..
O2 -> 64GB -> Space Grey -> Good -> 149.99 @ checkout - still in stock as of writing this

^^ I've just been through all options and this is the best 'price 4 spec' option still available ^^

Granted not as good as original deal, but might be useful for someone after more storage.
Hot price great little phone excellent camera I would go for 32gb 16gb is no good for Apple as can’t delete cache and soon fills up memory with pics etc
Recently bought a Samsung A5 from MM, it had a massive scratch across the screen and they supplied a normal micro usb cable instead of usb-c. Contacted their customer services and didn't hear back so just sent it back.
Pretty unimpressed by them and in no hurry to use them again.

You could easy get a cloud subscription so your photos back up automatically ?

Thanks for the tip !!!

Use iCloud for photos.


U know what you mean, but iCloud very limited free storage, no?. Google photos unlimited (at a capped resolution, but greater than this camera's, it believe) and I think if you have Prime, Amazon Photos unlimited too. Plus there's Dropbox and Onedrive etc. where people may already have a larger storage plan.
Surely the battery will be degraded like mad on this? My old 5s battery was rubbish after about 18 months. So much so I needed a battery case just to get me through the day.

Its up to people what storage solution they use, just saying iCloud will automatically store photos for you and it is inexpensive. I have iPhone, iPad Pro, iPad Mini & an iMac so use the 200GB option a month for £2.49 to sync my files between all devices, handle photos in the cloud at full resolution and have cloud backups of each device. you get 5GB for free and can have 50GB for as little as 79p a month. Even with all those devices, and I photograph a LOT, I'm only at about 120gb of my utilisation and thats with a lot of synced files on my iMac as well.

iCloud will also store applications that you do not frequently used so as to free up space on the phone when required, as well as books and health data, and in the next update will include iMessage sync so that deletion of messages carries across devices.

There are other options out there, use whichever suits your needs. But 16gb is definitely lovable with if using cloud data and guessing those in the market for a £99 phone probably dont need the most space.
Have they put the price up? Just checked and its showing as £199 now for a rose gold SE in 16gb on O2, looks like no Good left, EE has Very Good for £169 or Good from £149 then minus the £20.
Looks to be at least £149.99 for a one in 'Good' condition now. Cheaper available on eBay.
