Would you like a cell phone that won’t lose its value? Buy an iPhone
Although Android phones have many advantages over iOS devices, One of the main reasons to choose Apple terminals is the higher resale value.
What does that mean? If you buy an iPhone and then want to sell it after two years, you can make a lot more money than buying an Android phone and selling it on the used market at the same time. A study now confirms that “cheap” Android phones can lose up to 95% of their value in just 2 years.
If you want to sell a smartphone on the used market, don’t buy Android
If you thought that Samsung phones have depreciated a lot over time, Please pay attention to the following.
As the Phone Arena tells us, a recent study confirmed what we all knew that iPhones sell better over time. Well after this obviousness we all knew We also need to highlight other data that we find interesting.
According to this report Android smartphones worth more than $ 700 are depreciating twice as fast as iPhones. When do they lose their value? From the first moment we take them out of the box. The price of an iPhone drops 16.7% in the first year and 35.47% in the second year, while an Android price drops 33.62% in the first year and 61.5% in the second year.
Strangest of all are the phones that are $ 350 or less or what we might consider medium / low range. After the first year of use, these terminals lose value by 52.61% and 73.61% within two years. Once this point is reached, the price drops to 85% in the third year and to 95% in the fourth. This means, that the phone practically loses its value after four years.
Obviously, when it comes to brands, Apple smartphones are the devices with the least depreciation. And what else? Well, the Taiwanese from HTC.
