Online and in store. Good deal for those who found the £1,000 price point just a little too much! Comes with a CEX 24 month warranty (for whatever that's worth).

Imagine spending £1000 on a phone and then trading it in for less than £600 a month later 😳
Or worse still, imagine spending £900 on a second hand phone that someone has traded in for £600 one month after they purchased it new for £1000 😳
If you've got £900 to spend on a phone, I'm sure you'd cough up the extra £100 for a brand new one.
I used to work in CeX. Do not I repeat do NOT buy any hardware from them.

While all hardware that comes into the store is tested to make sure it works, the warranty you get is awful. 24 months yes, but after 28 days it’s no cash back, only store credit. Meaning if your phone breaks in a month you’re stuck with a £900 voucher for CeX. Not to mention they won’t take something back on your word, let’s say you have that common iPhone battery issue where it jumps down to like 10% from a full charge. Well, they’d be happy to swap it for another phone, but only after they’ve seen the problem working I.e we need to take the phone and leave it say playing a video for however long it takes. If we don’t see the battery drop, sorry nothing we can do!

while their reasonings are protecting the business and that it’s second hand and to be expected, it’s totally anti consumer and I only ever recommend buying games or DVDs from there, and that’s AFTER checking the disc before you buy it.

With regards to people selling them at £600, CeX actually buy phones at launch for more than they’re worth. When I worked there I believe it was the 6 and 6 Plus, and they offered about £50-£100 more than it cost to buy it brand new sim free from Apple. We used to get lots of folk buying them at the midnight launch and then coming to our shop at 9am to sell them. I remember getting told why this was but can’t remember exactly, probably something to do with getting people in the door.

In any case, stick with getting it brand new folks.

That would take a special sort of chump. I assume this is the excess stock from the people who bought it on launch and then traded it in straight away for a quick £50 profit.

Voted hot. If you ever got an unwanted gift , won't you want to cash it out . Plus some people like me get several phones from work etc and cannot use all of them at one time.

So that means someone for whatever reason must have sold their iPhone X to CEX for a maximum of £675, after getting it for £1000 only a few weeks ago. Something is fishy about these iPhone Xs as they're popping up left and right with these cash generator retailers.

Most of these are not purchases but free gifts, samples , bribes , review objects where the receiver has no use for them and due to depreciation wants to cash them asap.

You work for gearbest?
Imagine buying a phone for £900 that gets blocked one month later because the previous owner stopped paying for their contract after pocketing £675.

They get it on contract s an "upgrade", flog it straight awy to get the cash from CEX, give it several months, report it lost. Chancers.
I went out and bought one from here, reason being is that I had a iPhone 6s Plus 16gb which I traded in at £246, I’d previously smashed the screen and had a 3rd party replacement put on, this caused the front camera not to work. I was uncomfortable selling this on EBAY with all the fees and the potential for fraud and the fact I was only going to get about £220 selling on eBay.
I was upfront about the damage and they knocked another £25 off, so a phone which was 2 years old out of warranty for a new iPhone X for £900 still in box and never registered so you get your 12 months Apple direct warranty and CEX offer 24 months warranty, not sure how good this warranty is but it’s better than nothing.

I was going to buy an X anyway so it worked for me.

Only an idiot would buy an iPhone X or other expensive mobile device without first having home insurance with cover for accidental damage including away from the home. Home insurance makes sense anyway and these days most people are carrying around relatively expensive and fragile equipment, at least some of the time.

No . This is not a heartbeat deal but Cex . Are you confused.com ?


No idea what a heartbeat deal is. Cex deal isn't relevant, I was replying to your post saying your work give you lots of phones and I notice you've had many Chinese import phones so wondered if that's what you meant.

How can I be a website? No idea what you mean.

Cex , eBay , gumtree and some places cash converters are only places you can get rid of expensive electronic items without any problem. What you are saying is only partly true. Cex do insist on testing returned items before paying but they do pay back in cash . They took one week to refund me one time but I got my money back so had no regrets buying from them. As long as you save their receipts and stickers your refund is safe.

heat for CEXas i like to trade in old equipment.
Mega cold for the iphone X , apple seem to constantly ratchet up prices each year,
the words computer and apple should never be mentioned in one sentence.

No, it doesn't mean that. Current rate isn't necessarily the rate Cex paid for these.

Nothing fishy about the iPhone X in the context you mentioned - you also see Note 8s and the like popping up in these shops because some people take out expensive contracts to get expensive phones to easily flog to these shops and make a fast buck. This is completely typical of some sort of contract buyers and isn't exclusively an Apple thing.

Whilst im not suggesting buying from CEX either.

The good thing with Apple is, If it breaks (Through no fault of your own) you can take it to an Apple store and they'll replace it immediately with a white box unit, which is practically like brand new. You dont need a receipt etc, unlike some other manufacturers where If you buy used youre stuffed If you dont have the oriiginal reciept.

So not only do you have a now working phone but you also have one that is free from scratches etc that your previously "mint" condition one had.

But yeah CEX sounds horrible espcially that store credit return policy - terrible, I'd be insulted If I came to return it and they offered £900 in store credit wtf
