I want to get an Iphone for my mum. Preferably a bigger screen. Would the XR be decent? Has anyone bought refurbished before?

Music magpie selling pristine (no marks/scratches) Iphone XRs for £479 vs £630 brand new.

XR is good if you want a bigger screen. camera isnt as good as other higher end/newer ones mind. definitely sufficient for mum/nan though

Someone sold one on avforums for £280 a few days ago, just keep an eye on there as they pop up now and again,.

If you would prefer to buy from a shop I think Very have a code at the moment or if your a new customer and use buy now pay later you will get 10% off so like £380 or so for it new

Can anyone comment on the battery of the SE? Been looking at picking one up, but a common review is that battery life is shit.

Can get a couple of days from mine, don't use it loads throughout the day, couple of hours maybe, but have been surprised how long it goes for. Upgraded from an iphone 7 where battery health was 75% and it rarely got through the day on a single charge.
