Do you have an old iPhone 4S? Is it smashed, or cracked all over like the one above? Don’t worry, the trade-in value is still just as much as, if not more than, a like-new Galaxy S2 or Galaxy Nexus! That is right, the trade-in value of a completely smashed (just look at the picture above) iPhone 4S comes in at around the same, and sometimes more, than a mint condition Galaxy S2 (in this example, the AT&T flavor). These statistics are coming from the popular online electronics trade-in company, Gazelle, at its CES booth. I don’t know about you, but this shows me one reason to buy into Apple’s ecosystem, as its devices retain high value.
What do you think? Does this make you feel better about buying an Apple product? Have you sold a broken device for a good amount? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
