iPhone XS price in Nigeria UK used
The UK used iPhone XS price in Nigeria right now starts from ₦160,000, and goes all the way to ₦220,000 and this depends on a couple of factors such as the internal storage size, and who you’re actually buying from.
And if you must know, below is a table showing some of the best deals on the iPhone XS UK used price in Nigeria that you can find on the Jiji online marketplace.
|iPhone XS UK Used||Price in Nigeria||Where to buy|

|256GB||₦180,000 - 220,000||Jiji NG|
So, having seen the current selling price of this phone in the country right now, now let’s see if buying this almost 4-year-old device is worth it in 2022, even now that the iPhone 14 series will be announced in just a few weeks to come, which automatically will make it even one more generation older.
So, shall we?
Definitely, Yes, we shall.

So, the thing is, one of the most obvious factors or reasons that make people prefer to buy older phones over newer ones, which is especially true for iPhone buyers, is because of the cheaper prices.
And seeing that most iPhones are basically no different from their newer models both in terms of design and specs, it just makes sense to buy an older model instead if you don’t have the cash to splash on a shiny new iPhone 13 or even the upcoming 14 series.
So, to begin with, the iPhone XS was announced all the way back in September 2018 alongside two other models, the iPhone XR and XS Max, and in Apple’s usual fashion, it was basically an iterative upgrade from the iPhone X that was announced the year before it.
So, if you decide to get this phone right now in 2022, you’ll be getting a 5.8 inches OLED display with a Full HD+ resolution and all the fancy flagship phone display features such as HDR10 and Dolby Vision, but no high refresh rates here as high refresh rate displays were not even a thing as at then.
Then moving to the cameras, you’ll be getting what I’ll refer to as something that is still very usable even in 2022, a dual 12MP camera setup on the back, and a single 7MP camera on the front.
So, even if your main aim of getting this phone in 2022 is basically to take photos, I’ll say that you wouldn’t really be losing a lot when compared to say something like the iPhone 11 and 12 series.
Then the processors, yes, the iPhone XS uses the Apple A12 Bionic chipset with 4GB of RAM, and though, Apple has been long known for having some of the fastest chipsets in its smartphones even to this day, but one more thing you should also know is that the iPhones in the past, prior to the iPhone 12 and 13 series, were notoriously known for getting extremely hot under prolonged used, which in return, affects the overall performance of the phone, and not only that as it heavily affects the battery life of the phone.
And speaking about batteries, the iPhone XS came with a meager 2615 mAh capacity battery as iPhones haven’t been known for having the largest battery sizes around, and coupled with the tendency of the phone to run extremely hot on prolonged usage, this basically means the iPhone XS also has some of the worse battery lives on any iPhones today.
And lastly, let’s talk about the software.
Well, it’s no news that Apple usually provides long-term software support for its devices even many years after being released, and it’s true for the iPhone XS as you won’t be missing out on any new software features from Apple until late 2024 when Apple will be officially cutting software supports for the phone, so it’s safe to say it’s still a worthy phone to buy in 2022 if software support is one of your topmost priority of getting it in the first place.
So, to summarize everything, is the iPhone XS worth buying in 2022?
Well, I think considering the price now, and the fact that it still has above-average cameras, good performance if you don’t include the heat factor and a very well-optimized software that’s still eligible to get two more updates from the company, I think it’s definitely still worth buying in 2022.
And that wraps it up today for the iPhone XS price in Nigeria UK, why it’s still worth buying in 2022, and the complete specifications (below).
