Say if you're selling the latest model 1 year after using, what price have you been able to fetch?
Heard that iPhone retains its value better than Samsung, but I can't be sure if it is true! Any iPhone / Samsung users who can share your observations?
Another consumer advice again: it's true that iPhones have better resale value and it’s not because Apple users fart nicer than others...
But because iPhones or any other Apple devices do not slow down after years of usage. And they continue to receive software upgrades.
I have been using my iPhone 6S longer than I’ve been married. Around iOS 9/10 was bad till they admitted using software to hold back phone performance (but I didn’t even realise) subsequent updates have been good and no issues.
Used a couple of extra androids and iPhone as work phones previously and I’d say iPhone suits me more.
A long-time user of Samsung, and current user of Apple iPhone X.
I usually use my phone for 3 years plus
Have never sold my Samsung before because, by the end of 2 yrs or 3yrs, the phone is slowed a lot, and not working well. No idea if there is a Samsung trade-in or battery upgrades. For all my Samsung phone, by the time I switched, the old phone fast becoming a brick.
iPhone - Apple has a scheme where u can bring in to upgrade ur battery. my wife upgraded once and her old phone become great again (she is still using it)
and my iPhone x, it's almost 2 years and it's still quite good. battery health is still 85%.
if I were to sell it now, definitely will get a better resale value than a Samsung phone
