I was pleasantly surprised at what I got for a three-year-old iPhone 5. The new battery (which was covered by Apple) surely helped a bit, but it was still a solid performer in excellent, like-new condition and it went to the right person.
The SE hit at a good time. Just wish that size had been around all along because I certainly would've bought a 4" 6s well before the end of 2015.
But I have a phone I'm happy with, paid-for upfront and all mine (first time I've ever gone this route) so its really all just after-the-fact, who-gives-a-damn jibber-jabber at this point, isn't it?
