You can sell your iPhone X at 68% of its value just a week before the new one arrives

06 September 2018
It turns out, iPhones depreciate the least a year after they are released. The iPhone X is a record-breaker right now.

S6 User, 08 Sep 2018That could be money laundering.If they're stolen they don't sell at that price as there would be zero warranty on them anywhere. This is either retailers or Apple dumping them where they don't have to admit there's a fire sale.

S6 User, 08 Sep 2018Yes, also antiques, collectables, paintings, wine etc, anything ... moreAntiques, painting, collectables are the biggest source of Money Laundering since most of the auctions are anonymous and there is no tax paid due to exemptions for artistic work!

It's been for years nothing new, iPhones font loose their value much because Apple don't really lowers the price until new models comes. In Android world competition is insane that's why prices of phones going all the time down, only good thing is if you own some Samsung with curved edge screens which are all the time on demand and can sustain it's value better than the rest, well at least in Europe

Technology falls quickly in value, and that includes overpriced Apple.

LMAO at all the Fandroids here.

But to be fair all android phones are pretty much worthless, even when new.

LG v30 is down only ~53% of its original value even though LG has released the v35 and the G7 since.

Right now, iPhones are not being bought or sold in the second-hand(used) market for the same 70%-80% ranges anymore. It only can go 50% as MAX after one year. Right now, people have millions of options in the Android world. Even at 50% people are not finding it attractive since there are many other flagships can be bought in TWO numbers! It is just economics!

I just wish gadget bloggers would one day just tone down the mindnumbing RDF just a bit. Some times it is just annoying and makes you wonder if anything nice written about any Apple product is remotely true. Maybe Apple is still using forced labour in all of their Asian sites? Who knows? RDF has to be taken into account.

Why would you sell a top of the line flagship with no concrete information on how its successor performs and whether or not the incremental upgrades are even worth it? People still fail to understand that no company is your friend, especially Apple with their predatory business practices

I would like to see the face of the person who bought the Desire 820 at it's original price, only to know that it depreciated by 95%, just one year later! XD

  • AnonD-632062

I wouldn't buy an iPhone X even at 50% of it's price. You see, it doesn't have a ton of crucial features a few of which includes a simple fingerprint scanner and a 3.5 mm jack.

The website does not have a single Galaxy Note listed. It isn't very versatile.

PeterThePanda, 07 Sep 2018ROFL at the people who buy phones as an investment, smartphones ... moreIn less than a year, these latest flagships would be flooding the used markets anyways. No fruit logo sends a phone to less than half its value.

That's called DEPRECIATION.
Iphone is less depreciated because many people still believe in those LOGO. But who knows the future?
