We live in a society where second hand value is also important when buying a smartphone. In fact, let alone the phones, we see that many people buy vehicles that they can easily sell on the second hand, not the vehicle they like when they buy a vehicle, since they are only second hand. So, which are the phones that lose the most value?



The report was prepared by BankMyCell based on the exchange method of old phones for an additional fee. According to the report, Android phones lose twice as much value as iPhones in the first 12 months.

While Android smartphones lose value by 33.62%, iPhones lose value by 16.70%. Two years after the purchase, this rate increases to 61.50% for Android devices, while it reaches 35.70% for iPhones. Four years after the purchase, this ratio increased to 81.11% for Android smartphones, and 66.43% for iPhones.

When we consider the smartphone manufacturers one by one, the HTC, Motorola and Sony models are experiencing the biggest decline in the first year. HTC is down 53.08%, Motorola is down 42.57% and Sony is down 39.51%.

According to Taiwanese source DigiTimes, Apple will shrink the notch on the iPhone 13 model it will introduce this year.

Face ID sensors on iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be used in flat models. In other words, Apple will not change the design this year and will only make small touches to its new models.
