Why is everyone buying the iPhone XR these days? Its currently the hottest selling iPhone in Greenhills and it has pretty much dethroned the iPhone 6s in terms of popularity.

Depending with the seller you interact with and the price of the phone you want, the box may or may not be included. If it is not included you might have to pay a little extra for the box like in this case. In the box is the phone, a USB A to lightning connector, a small Class A adaptor which we assume to be around 5W and lighting earphones. Disclaimer: it is likely that these accessories included in the box are probably not the original , after all they are not expected to considering that you are buying a second hand item.
The device has a 6.1-inch LCD display with a resolution of 828×1792 pixels. It is powered by Apple’s A12 Bionic chip, paired with 3GB of RAM.
