Consider two signature phones from last year. The iPhone X debuted costing $999, but was still worth $690 nine months later, according to device reseller BankMyCell. That’s a drop of just 30.93 percent.
Samsung’s Galaxy S9 cost $720 but was worth just $290 nine months later. That’s a steep drop of 59.72 percent.
Even worse, BankMyCell says the S9 lost 41.66 percent of its value in the first month, which is 10.73 percent more than the iPhone X did in nine months… More here.
This doesn’t surprise me at all and if you are ever undecided on which to buy, please consider resale as part of your decision making.
