Top 10 Most Traded-in Phones of 2018

Most traded in phones of 2018

 

As 2019 is well and truly in full swing, the Team at SellCell.com have started to reflect on the phones that were most traded in during 2018.  Which Top 10 phones did Americans trade-in and essentially dispose of?  What was the busiest day for selling old phones?  Take a read below as we reveal the most traded-in phones of 2018

 

Top 10 Most Traded-in Phones of 2018

 

2018 was one of the busiest years on record for phone trade-ins through SellCell.  Users flocked to the site in masses to find the best price for their old phone.  There were big spikes in sales post Christmas around New Year, across Black Friday (as impressive phone deals were revealed) and around key manufacturers launches

 

Interestingly, Apple iPhones take the first top 5 positions as the most traded in phones on SellCell in 2018 and 66% of the total number of trade-ins over the period across the full selection of phones on the site

 

1.  iPhone 6S

 

Most traded in phones of 2018

 

 

Top of the charts for the most traded in phone was the Apple iPhone 6S.  The 64GB model took nearly half of the sales over the 12 month period.  The device is still regarded by some Apple enthusiasts as one of the best iPhone models and certainly the fact that Apple sold it for 3 years actively is testament to the phones longevity.  The iPhone 6S has also over-performed as a device for years and the average user has held on to the device for longer than many other models.  Apple however in 2018 stopped selling the iPhone 6S through their website, which may have triggered users to decide to trade in their beloved 6S

 

2.  iPhone 6

 

Most traded in phones of 2018

 

Second on our list of the most traded in phones of 2018 is the iPhone 6.  The iPhone 6 was discontinued on September 7, 2016 when Apple announced the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. However it wasn’t until September 2018 that the iPhone 6 32GB model was discontinued with the announcement of the iPhone XR.  This no doubt sparked many users to decide that 2018 was the time to trade in their trusted iPhone 6.  The iPhone 6 has been the best selling iPhone with over 220 millions units sold across the world, so there will also be a lot of these units in the American market to trade-in.  With this in mind we expect this device still to be traded in for some time to come

 

3.  iPhone 7

 

Most traded in phones of 2018

 

 

iPhone 7 tips the chart at position three for the most traded in phone of 2018.  Many users held onto the iPhone 7 for the period of their contract and were actually rumoured to skip the iPhone 8 so traded in the 7 this year after buying one of the newer iPhone line up.  Generally people have held onto their iPhones for longer if this Guardian report is true 

 

4.  iPhone 7 Plus

 

Most traded in phone of 2018

 

Following its smaller brother the iPhone 7 Plus comes into the fold as the fourth most traded in phone of 2018.  According to Flurry Analytics the iPhone 7 & 7 Plus still holds a very high slot for the most sold phones in the US, even outperforming the new XS.  This continued and consistent sales since launch means that there are more iPhone 7 Plus in the US market and as such more to trade in vs other phones



5.  iPhone 6s Plus

 

Most traded in phone of 2018

 

The larger version of the iPhone 6S, the iPhone 6S Plus is the fifth most traded in phone through SellCell.com. The iPhone 6S had the smaller 4.7-inch screen while the iPhone 6S Plus had a larger 5.5-inch one. The fact that you can still get $203 for trading in an iPhone 6S Plus is positive and would no doubt have encouraged many loyal users to trade in this year

 

6.  iPhone X

 

Most traded in phone of 2018

 

The iPhone X was launched on August 31, 2017.  There have been many reports that the iPhone X was one of the most unpopular iPhones ever launched, largely due to its price tag.  To the contrary, the Apple iPhone X emerged as the highest-selling smartphone during the first three months of the year 2018.  In May 2018, Tim Cook stated that the X was the best selling model each week in the recent quarter.  “The iPhone X is a beloved product,” he added.  Despite this public reverie the iPhone X sits firmly as number six in our Top 10 most traded in phones in the US.  The fact that the user can still make over $520 may make trading the phone in a popular route  – and last year they would have been valued even higher

 

7.  Samsung S7

 

Most traded in phones of 2018

 

The Samsung Galaxy S7 launched on 11 March 2016 and appears as the seventh most traded in phone on SellCell.com in 2018.  The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 in March 2018 led to the Samsung S8 being dropped in price.  Users may have seen this as time to buy into a newer version and sell on their old S7

 

8.  iPhone 8 Plus

 

Most traded in phone of 2018

 

Back on the scoreboard are iPhones again. This time we see in position 8 the iPhone 8 Plus. The phone was launched only on September 22nd 2017.  SellCell data confirms that the biggest percentage of these devices were traded in around the launch of the new iPhone XR launch date in October, more or less a year on since the iPhone 8 Plus hit the shelves.  Yet less than one year on we see some good volume of these devices being traded in.  We can see why though as even today’s value is pretty good, still fetching $431

 

9.  Samsung S8

 

Most traded in phone of 2018

 

In 9th position for the most traded-in phones of 2018 is the Samsung Galaxy S8.  Launched in April 2017, less than a year later it hits the Top 10 as one of the most disposed of devices on SellCell.com.  The availability of the Samsung S9, may have spurred on a flurry of trade-ins. Interestingly most of these devices were traded in around the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9

 

10.  Samsung S7 Edge

 

Most traded in phones of 2018

 

 

The final device on the leaderboard of the most traded in phones of 2018 is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. In position ten this device launched in February 2016.  Voted by the likes of TechRadar as the 2016 Smartphone of the Year, it still is perceived to be one hell of a great phone, but the recent launches of newer Samsung flagship models have no doubt caused loyalists to move on with the technology and kiss the S7 goodbye

 

What Was the Busiest Trade-in Day of 2018?

Black Friday - Busiest time for phone trade in

 

It will be no surprise that one of the busiest trade-in periods for selling an old phone was around November 2018, notably Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  Officially the busiest day of 2018 for trade- in was 7th November 2018 – around 2 weeks before Black Friday and just as the pre- Black Friday sales hit!  What a bunch of savvy traders!  New Year and Apple & Samsung manufacturer launch periods also saw a huge spike in trade- ins.

 

So there you have it, a round up of the most traded-in phones of 2018.  SellCell predict that the iPhone 7 and the Samsung S8 will appear right at the top of the list in 2019, but we will report more next year.  If you want to be guaranteed to get the best price for selling your old phone visit SellCell.com.

When is the Best Time to Sell your Phone?


When the best time to sell your phone?

 

Mobile Phones are now a big investment for us all – period!  Whether you stumped up the cash upfront or spread payments over a contract, the average cost of a mobile phone is $400

 

A new phone is definitely a serious, informed purchase.  So it is really important to make sure you are aware of the key times when your phone could be at risk of losing big amounts of value to ensure that you get the maximum amount of cash for your phone

 

Will My Phone Keep Declining in Value?

 

Does my phone decrease in value?

 

The answer simply is yes! It’s no great mystery that mobile phones quickly depreciate in value as soon as you purchase and open the box.  To get maximum value, the newer the phone the more a Mobile Phone BuyBack company will pay for the device

 

Similarly to cars, tablets and lots of technologies there are constant updates to the phones operating systems and functionality presenting users with enhanced options and as a result users look at newer versions

 

As a phone is a large investment, it is key to plan the time when your phone could be subject to the biggest losses and ensure that you are selling your phone at the optimal time and getting the very best amount of cash for it

 

Phones Lose their Value the Fastest in the first 12 Months

 

Brand new phones often see the greatest and fastest losses in value in the first 12 months since release. As an example, roughly around 10 months after the release of the iPhone 7 the prices of the handset dropped by circa 54% 

 

Even Samsung phones have seen some big losses in the first year since the release.  The Samsung Galaxy Note 8, for example was released to the public to buy on September 15, 2017. In just 4 weeks in the October, there were price slashes of $99 already

 

Phones Decrease Radically in Value as an New Model is Released

 

Will a new phone launch reduce the value of my phone?

 

Phones undeniably lose their value with age, but one of the key reasons for the loss in value is around the manufacturer’s annual launch of new devices. Most major manufacturers release brand new phones every year, so the old phone has to make way for the new phones higher value and therefore will lose some of the original ticket price

 

With recent Apple launches the price of older iPhones can drop by over $100 in the first week that a new release has been announced according to our data

 

The clear message is that ALL phones don’t hold their initial ticket price for long – and there are heavy drops to make way for new phones on the block

 

How do I Time the Sale of my Device around the Launch of a new Phone?

 

It’s easy to work out the best time to buy a new phone and indeed sell your old one, if you remain loyal to the same manufacturer.   From previous years there are clear times each year when manufacturers announce and pre-launch a new range of phones, Apple usually September each year and Samsung around February to April

 

So, a smart time to sell a device to avoid big losses in value is around two weeks prior to the launch of a new device.  Our research indicates that the day after the launch announcement the value of the older models can lower by $100’s specially across Apple devices..  Ouch!

 

So why not borrow a phone from a friend for a few weeks and sell before that all important launch occurs. Most BuyBack companies will offer 14 days to send in devices – and hold the value initially quoted, so this may also help to void the gap between when your phone is sold and getting that all new device . So don’t leave it too late and avoid the big crashes in value

 

An Older Device May be Worth Less as it Develops more Faults

 

Will the value of my phone decrease if broken?

 

Another real downside to holding on to the phone for too long is that not only is there an organic depreciation in value, but there is also a greater chance that the device can be scratched, damaged or the battery can also wear down

 

Over time batteries, charging ports and chips in devices naturally run down, erode and deteriorate, which will lessen the overall value of the phone

 

Cosmetic and functional issues can cause a substantial loss of value and sometimes this can be caused by holding onto the device for too long

 

So, When is the best time to Sell my Phone?

 

The best time to sell your old phone is straight away. As soon as you are thinking of buying a new one or if it becomes redundant.

 

Your old phone will not increase in value sitting on a shelf, so the quicker that you can get the phone sold will ensure a better value

 

Also, make sure to get the maximum value for your phone avoid the the periods where big loses can occur!

 

So there really is no time like the present to look at getting your old device sold to get the maximum value!

Top Mobile Phone Deals Predicted for Black Friday 2018

top mobile phone deals 2018

Black Friday is less than one month away, but as a nation of bargain hunters, we expect there to be some outstanding savings to be made across all tech items, including new mobile phones and tablets

Ahead of November 23 the team at SellCell.com anticipate that there will be a good selection of discounts and deals across mobile phone and tablets that will create a huge surge in the number of old devices being traded in on SellCell.  The number of old devices traded in across November increases by 25% as users frantically try to generate some cash to support the Black Friday offers, that are often too good to refuse, across all key phone and tablet manufacturers

If 2017 helps to draw any predictions of what deals are to come, the best cell phone offers may come from actual online and high street retailers and not from the carriers. There were many deals too from gadget sellers offering gift cards from $100 to $350 with the purchase of a brand new Apple or Samsung Phone

Apple Black Friday Deal Predictions

iPhone XS & New iPad 2018

Apple-iPhone-Colours

 

It’s predicted that the new phones and tablets that have been launched this year could be heavily discounted by some of the key retailers like Walmart & Target to follow the trends of recent years.  Hot on the anticipated deals list is the brand new iPad 2018 which could see savings of up to $30 dropping to around $299 from $330

It is still being debated if the all new iPhone XS may be at a reduced price for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There may not be the bigger price cuts seen across other phones and tablets but the carriers may produce better deals to tie you in to a brand new iPhone, similar to the gift card/ voucher deals that were really popular in 2017

Samsung Black Friday Deal Predictions

Samsung Note 9 & Galaxy S9

Samsung Note 9 & Samsung S9

 

Historically Samsung has shown some reasonable offers for the purchase of newly launched devices, so there stands a good chance that the S9 and Note 9 will too be priced attractively on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  Against the grain of recent launches the Samsung Galaxy S9 did not sell as many devices as predicted and as such the company many have more stock to move  – as such the deals on November 23 could be very tasty

MWC 2018 – Here’s The Latest News

Credit: https://qz.com/

Credit: https://qz.com/

It’s finally here! After weeks of anticipation the mobile technology event of the year has arrived! With some of the leading brands in the mobile and tablet industry expected to showcase their latest and greatest pieces of tech, this event is surely not one to miss.

The rumours and leaks have been in abundance this year, with big announcements from Nokia, Huawei and Sony expected as well a Samsung’s highly anticipated Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus will be making its first appearance to the public.

No matter what the rumours say, it all falls down to the opening day. We will be showing you what you can expect to see in Barcelona today…

Say hello to the Samsung Galaxy S9/ S9 Plus

Undoubtedly the most anticipated phone of the year, the Samsung Galaxy S9/ S9 Plus has already been unveiled to the press and many journalists and gadget experts have witnessed the flagship device in action.

Many of the rumours were true. When glancing at the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy S8, aesthetically, there is not a huge difference between the latest and the latter. But it’s not what’s on the outside that makes this phone so appealing. The phone now boasts an upgraded camera, a fresh facial recognition system and (like the iPhone X) all new AR Emojis?

Both the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are available for pre-order come March 2nd for around $719.99. A little bit cheaper than the launch price of the S8, just under a year ago.

New Technology from Sony

Sony has once again delivered with their latest flagship device. The Xperia X2 is an upgrade for those looking for a smarter and sleeker phone compared to its earlier models. As expected, the camera is once again phenomenal and the phone is following trends with it’s thin bezels. But it’s its brand new features such as a Dynamic Vibration System which makes this device stand out. The system uses vibrations when watching media, enhancing your experience. It’s little brother, the Sony Xperia X2 Compact will also be making an appearance too.
Nokia are back with a bang!

Nokia have already been making noise over the past year with the release of the Nokia 7 and the re-release of the classic 3310. This convention, Nokia are showing off four new smartphones including the Nokia 1, Nokia 6, Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 8 Sirocco.

Hoping to squeeze their way to the top of the mid-range market, Nokia are releasing a flagship phone – the Nokia 8 Sirocco, boasting a beautiful 5.5inch OLED screen, fingerprint scanning and the ever-popular dual camera. Coming in at a whopping $749, is the price just a little too expensive?

Last year saw the return of the 3310, this year the banana phone is back. The Nokia 8810, formerly known as the banana phone, is being re-released with a 2018 upgrade. The iconic device now comes with 4G, but don’t worry, still maintains that everlasting battery.

New Tablets From Huawei

There is very little info on these device at the moment. One thing that can be certain is that there is a range of tablets under the series name: The MediaPad 5. The tablets are expected to be expensive and fall into higher end of the market but information is sparse and these details may change as the week concludes.

The LGV30 gets an upgrade

It’s big, it’s thin and it looks like the LGV30…. It’s the LGV30S ThinQ. The phone does have some great new features but they are ever so similar to both Samsung and Apple’s recent ventures. AR, bigger storage and a slightly improved camera. There’s not much more to add really…

A surprise from Alcatel HQ

Alcatel are known for their budget phones. For many, it’s a trusty backup for those that have broken or smashed their main device. Your opinion may be swayed with the recent launch of the Alcatel 5. The latest phone from Alcatel has a number of cool features such as facial recognition, a dual selfie camera and a great display screen which are popular among mid-range and flagship phones, however at just $280, this budget phone packs a hefty punch with a little cost.

As you all can imagine, Samsung are currently stealing the show with the Galaxy S9/S9 Plus and after their opening show last night, it is surely going to stay on the lips of all entrants this week.

It seems that a lot of the big-named companies have held back this year, which is understandable after observing the snowballing hype for Samsung’s latest flagship phone. However it’s Nokia and Alcatel that have took the press by surprise and it seems that both companies are looking to gain tracks over the next week.
