    I got this phone for my youngest daughter and as a test to see how ordering a refurbished phone would go...to my surprise this iPhone 8 really was in excellent condition. It looks brand new and The battery is lasting her all day too. The day I received this phone, I came back to order a different phone for myself, and it arrives today. I am very excited and I would absolutely recommend buying from back market, I plan to buy an iPad soon and will be shopping from here when I do. I love the fast shipping too.

    I love love LOVE being able to purchase these refurbished items. I use this for all of my phones and tech and I haven't been let down yet. I bought a brand new laptop for $1200 from a manufacturer and it lasted less than a year, but everything that I bought from here has worked so well for the past 5-ish years! I work in IT so I started buying here figuring that I could just fix this cheap stuff as it breaks but (knock on wood) everything has been working great! The only issue I have ever have has been Apple killing the battery of old phones with updates, but they do that even with non-refurbished stuff. I feel a lot better spending $200-$400 every 3 years for a new-to-me phone instead of $800-$1500. My whole family uses it now too because saving money and preventing electronic waste is awesome since being green usually costs more instead of less. What a great deal!

    I bought a Mac mini from here last year for my teen and was very satisfied with that purchase. I returned for an iPhone 8, my teen's first phone, and had my husband set it up. He was very impressed with its condition and speed considering it was an iPhone 8; he purchased an iPhone 13 from Back Market the same night. I won't be drinking the Apple Juice anytime soon but my guys are happy.

    There’s no other company in the world that i trust more than backmarket to get me a decent apple product at a decent price. I never use to shop refurbished but this site is top tier. Everytime I order my product is always in perfect condition no matter if I order excellent or good. I will forever be a customer.

    This gold iPhone 8 is clean. They did a good job making it nice again. There are no cosmetic issues whatsoever, the mesh covering the ear speaker is new and clean, the mesh covering the voice microphone area is also new and clean, the small screws are also new and clean. The only complaint is that the battery capacity is at 70%, and I will have to replace the battery. Even doing that, the phone is still a good deal, and I will have what I want, so I am happy. Thank you for this clean, pretty, functional “new” gold phone.

    The phone has a few quirks. It has a jumpy screen when I try to enlarge. Suddenly goes dark from time to time. Does not show missed calls. Shows the red dot, but doesn’t list them. If I turn my phone off, then back on then I can see them. I still stand up for refurbishing a phone instead of staying in debt to have a new one. Makes no sense to me.

    I needed "unlocked" iPhones in order to switch from my carrier to Mint. Back Market provided an excellent replacement for my mom's iPhone 8. She isn’t tech savvy, so I wanted to keep her experience with her phone way she was used to. It’s been great & I appreciated the opportunity to sell back the iPhone we had that was carrier locked! BACK MARKET provided excellent selection, so I found exactly what I was looking for & I appreciate their attempts to promote recycling of phones.

Reborn vs. brand new

Here’s what you help prevent on average by choosing a reborn smartphone over a brand new one.

171.1 lbs of CO2e

That's like driving an SUV from NYC to Chicago.

6.3 oz of e-waste

That’s around the weight of a baseball.

537.1 lbs of raw materials

That's like 20 dogs digging in your yard for a week.

20,341.2 gallons of water

That's like running a faucet for 3 days

Everything you ever wanted to know about the iPhone 8 - Unlocked

Is the iPhone 8 still a good smartphone?

While the iPhone 8 is not the most current iPhone on the marketplace, it still provides very good performance and should perform just as well as the most recent iPhones. You don't need to get the most recent iPhone for mobile gaming or music/video streaming, you can settle for this refurbished mobile phone and get the same features that you would anticipate from a much newer iPhone.


Unlocked iPhone 8 specifications & dimensions

This Unlocked iPhone 8 Space Gray was initially launched on 9/22/17 and has a classy glass/aluminum body. This phone is 5.45" tall, 2.65" wide, and 0.29 inches deep with a weight of 5.22oz. The Space Gray iPhone 8 256 GB is a mobile phone that feels and looks modern, has a really good camera and battery life, and will feel great during normal use.


How much is enough storage for the Unlocked iPhone 8?

The 256 GB of storage space on your Space Gray iPhone 8 will be used to store pics, videos, and songs right on your phone. If you intend on downloading a bunch of music or snapping tons of photos, you will probably want to settle for a smartphone with a copious storage capacity like 128GB, 256GB, or perhaps even 512GB.


How much RAM does the Unlocked iPhone 8 have?

This Space Gray iPhone 8 256 GB comes equipped with the Apple A11 processor, which gives the phone ample power to take on any app that you may wish to run. Due to the 2GB of RAM that is built into the device, you shouldn't encounter any complications with running multiple apps at once or multitasking.


What display does the Unlocked iPhone 8 have?

If you're a real mobile phone nerd, you'll be curious what kind of screen technology is featured in this phone: this Space Gray iPhone 8 has a 4.7 inch 1334x750 pixel 326 ppi screen. Apple labels this a "Retina" display, which is the same great screen tech that the company introduced in the iPhone 4, progressively fine-tuned over the years.


How is the camera on the Unlocked iPhone 8?

The main camera on this phone has 12 megapixels which may not seem like much, but we ensure that it will be enough to take good quality photos in almost all conditions. Unfortunately, the iPhone 8 does not incorporate an additional wide-angle lens like most newer iPhones.


Does the iPhone 8 have Face ID?

Because of Touch ID, the Space Gray iPhone 8 256 GB has the ability to authenticate your identity making use of a scan of your fingerprint. Although this is technically a slightly older technology than Face ID, in many circumstances it can in fact be more comfortable to use.


How long is the battery life on the iPhone 8?

Unless you're a specifically heavy cell phone user, you probably should not be worried about the Space Gray iPhone 8 256 GB not lasting you throughout your day: journalists claim this mobile phone has 13 hours of battery life while browsing the web or watching video, and that's not encompassing standby time.
