For my teenage son I'm considering getting a Sony XperiaX and install SailfishX on it. I have seen refurbished phones for around 200 euro but I am on a budget and wonder if there are cheaper alternatives? Is 200 euro a good price or can I get one for less?

Problem with refurbished ones is ensuring that you can unlock bootloader. From UK perspective most refurbished ones are network locked devices subsequently unlocked for which bootloader unlock = No

so the latter means no use?

Might be worth taking a look on the Belgian 2ndhand site:

in norway you can get a new xperia x with unlockable bootloader for 250 euros. so 200 euros for a used one is a bad deal imho. I paid 110 euro for a used one.

That kind of the ball park price I am looking for. See if I can get a friend from there to help out.

I bought a used Xperia X on an eBay auction for $130. I saw a few others in that price range , but not sure if you can buy in Europe or if ebay there might have similar prices

I would say 200 is on the top of the price range. I bought a almost new one (couple of months old) for 140€ on marktplaats, but that was a bargain.
