We’ve compiled a list of popular handsets and have found the resale values of the various devices.
This is meant as a guide to help readers keep tabs on the resale and trade-in values of many popular Android phones and iPhone models. We will keep it updated as phones hit the 6-month and 12-month marks. We will also update for new phones.
Please know that as with anything that is resold. Values can change, and there is never a set number. Think of this chart as more of a guideline to help you get a ballpark figure of what you may be able to expect for selling your phone from some of these services.
Currently, it seems that iPhones definitely retain more value than competitors. It’s also interesting to take a look at the difference in value between AT&T and Verizon iPhones on Amazon. This is likely due to the chipset in the AT&T phone, which is GSM and more widely used around the world. However, HTC holds prices better than Motorola handsets. A look at the Droid X will show you that Amazon will pay peanuts for a 3G phone that isn’t an iPhone. Keep in mind that Amazon’s goal is to resell them and profit, so they will naturally buy at a lower price. The convenience is that you don’t have to deal directly with someone. Send it to Amazon, get money or credit and forget about it.
