If you desperately want an Apple smartphone, but don’t care all that much about which iPhone you curl up with this holiday season, take a knee and listen up: The iPhone 5S is selling for cheap for a limited time on Lazada Philippines.

Sure, it’s not an iPhone X — but it fits the base description, runs the latest Apple software, and has a beautiful and compact metal construction with a fingerprint reader (hello, Touch ID!).

The iPhone 5S also got arguably the nicest 4-inch display you’ll find on any smartphone (still) on offer today. Perhaps importantly, you get a headphone jack, which has been M.I.A. from all recent iPhones.

This listing also comes with one year of official warranty coverage for your peace of mind, though it should be noted that the iPhone 5S has been phased out by Apple since 2016. Old and unfashionable as it is, we’d still happily pick this P8,999 (roughly $176) iPhone over most bargain smartphones sold today.

We don’t know when this offer will expire, but it surely won’t last long enough to please everyone — so act fast.
