Reselling used Smartphones can often be really worthwhile. You can even finance the newest Smartphone model and save money by selling your old one. But what is your phone worth?
Nowadays it can take extensive research and effort to determine the residual value of the used Smartphone. Additionally to the age and condition of the Smartphone, the exact model, memory size and technical details need to be figured out. Only then it is possible to investigate on various marketplaces the exact prices for how much the phone was actually sold.
Also the used Smartphone market supply and demand determine the price. Thus, there is never THE perfect timing to sell a phone. Even small changes in the market can influence prices short-term. For instance, we could observe price changes when a new smartphone flagship model was introduced or seasonally during Black Friday and Christmas.
Staying ahead of the latest e-commerce trends and all different price offers, the myhandycheck app now offers a new feature for Android and iOS: our quick price-check slider. This allows you to immediately see the fair price of your phone depending on the condition. In addition, you get an overview of the current prices and which providers are currently trading this model on the market for which price.
Most listed providers and platforms offer online buy and selling prices. With this market price comparison, you can see directly what price is offered and at what amount an identical cell phone model may be resold.
However, these are usually only price promises and not binding offers. First, the phone has to be sent in to check its technical and optical condition. Only then you will receive the final price. This can sometimes take a few weeks. In our last test, for example, we had to wait a total of 24 days before we received any feedback. And then you usually have to accept considerable discounts when micro-scratches or other minor defects are found that can only be checked by perfect lab conditions.
With the price-check, we would like to give you a first impression of the prices at which your phone model is traded on the used phone market. Only a complete diagnosis and an individual test certificate can accurately determine and justify the fair price. Especially, since a fair price can principally only be achieved if you sell privately – for instance as a classified ad on online marketplaces. This eliminates expensive commissions and saves time-consuming logistics routes to service and repair centres.
