Device Grading

All devices are thoroughly checked to ensure that they are graded correctly.  For details on our device testing process, please visit our Device Testing page.


At X2TECH, we only sell fully functional devices. The difference in grades is just due to cosmetic appearance.

No cracked or chipped screens. No cracked housing. Working Face ID and Touch ID.

All devices are thoroughly tested and professionally cleaned.


We take pride in our grading process and believe that our grading levels are some of the strictest in the market. Like with our service, we believe that our customers deserve the best levels.  See what our customers have said about the condition of their X2TECH iPhones in our real reviews here on Trustpilot.


When grading the phone we consider the overall condition and the extent of any specific signs of wear.


Below is a detailed overview of our Device Grading classifications:


Like New: These iPhones are refurbished and have no visible signs of wear, even when you look very closely. There will be no visible difference between these and brand new iPhones. Battery Health: 100% with Peak Performance Capability.


Pristine: Our 'Pristine' iPhones may have very minimal signs of wear.  Rather than having scuffs or scratches, these phones may have one or two very small marks that mean they don't quite make our 'Like New' grade. You will have to look very closely to see any sign of use. Some 'Pristine' graded iPhones have no signs of wear at all but the Battery Health is not the required 100% to make our 'Like New' grade. Battery Health: 80% - 100% with Peak Performance Capability.


Excellent: 'Excellent' iPhones have light signs of wear which may include a few scuffs and scratches to the screen and/or housing. Scratches will not be deep and they will be limited to only a few areas on the phone. Battery Health: 80% - 100% with Peak Performance Capability.


Good: Our 'Good' graded iPhones will have moderate signs of wear. This may include scuffs and scratches to the housing and screen. There are obvious signs of use. Battery Health: 80% - 100% with Peak Performance Capability.


Average: Officially a Grade C iPhone, we have recognised that there are heavier signs of wear than our usual 'Good' graded phones so have reclassified them to 'Average'.  They are still fully functional, thoroughly tested and professionally cleaned.  If you're just after a cheap fully functional phone then these are the ones to go for. 
Battery Health: 80% - 100% with Peak Performance Capability.
