Trade-in Value of iPhone X Leaves Other Smartphones Far Behind

According to a report published by liquidation specialist B-Stock in July, the average resale value of an iPhone X was 85% of the retail price. This was a record for an iPhone at that point in the sales cycle.

It is now just a week left for the announcement of new iPhones from Apple, and iPhone X still holds the trade-in value of 68%. The report notes that Samsung’s flagship phones have painted an opposite picture completely.

Even as many reports claim that Apple is likely to sell its iPhone XS or Xs at cheaper rates (starting from $800), people are willing to pay 68% of the retail value of iPhone X, which is now almost a year old.

Apart from iPhone X, other iPhones also hold better trade-in value than other Android phones. iPhone X has depreciated 32%, iPhone 8 45% and iPhone 7 44%. Surprisingly, Samsung Galaxy S9+ is now available at half of its original value five months after its launch.
