Used Smartphone Buy-Back Trend (August 2019)


Every month we put together the TOP TEN mobile phones being sold through SellUp. We hope this guide will provide you a price guide of the most traded-in smartphone in Singapore monthly. The table also provides a comparison of buy-back price from the previous month.

Current Trend

Buy-back price in August generally has dropped in value across all brands. Value depreciate most noticeable on Android phones, with Google Pixel 2 XL see a drastic value fallen by $80; that is a 30% loss in value from the previous month. 
Apple smartphone holds the depreciation value pretty well, with a $10-$30 dropped in prices across their models. The only exception is iPhone XS (64GB), which has the value plummet another $50 lower. However, given the model is almost a year since launch, having to sell it at $910 (SRP $1,649) is still a reasonable sum.

Samsung Galaxy Note series was officially available in Singapore in 3rd week of August. We see a spike of Samsung user selling their sets in exchange for cash to upgrade to the new model.

We noticed a high volume of S10+ users selling their devices to upgrade to Note 10. A convincing guess is that S10+ screen size is quite similar to Note 10 (6.4” vs. 6.3”), allowing a seamless experience in switching the device.

We are also excited about the new lineup of iPhones that will announce on 10th September 2019. We are expecting a pent-up demand from Apple users who longs to upgrade their devices. Finger-crossed that Apple will bring some surprises to their fans.
