One, I was serious. Two, the iPhone 7 is not 2-revs old, but released just last year. Three, I’m pretty sure Ars Technica and other benchmarking sites show last year’s iPhone faster than Google’s current flagship. Four, iPhones show high resale value, so I’d say the iPhone seemed a better value for a refurbished phone.

I also would like to know if this phone works with Project Fi?

I'd need a significantly greater discount than this to accept those terms plus an anemic warranty. I've been burned by a perma-locked bootloader in the past so went with Nexus phones, but boy have I ever needed the full warranty (and then some) on each of those!

With the exception of phone, ever since the Nexus S, I've stayed with the Nexus (and now Pixel) line.

One thing I really liked when I first started, was that even if I didn't know what I was doing, resolving the issues was really easy.

Too cool to have a signature.

This. Take a page out of Dell's and Apple's books, and offer same-as-new warranties on refurbs. If it's truly refurbished, that should be easy.

Great Phone, but with the industrial design straight out of 2014

I got this phone from Verizon and I don't remember there being any bloatware on the phone. If there was I was able to delete it because it isn't there anymmore.

I prefer the Moto G5 Plus I just bought for $229. Less specs but I just can't fully trust Huawei..
