Android phones lose value much faster than iPhones


Top-of-the-line devices that use Android are worth significantly less than Apple devices a year after their release.

One of the strong arguments in favor of Apple products is that the company will support its devices with new updates for a long time; the iOS 14 released last year could even be installed on the 2015 iPhone 6S. It matters a lot when we look at depreciation, because while we don’t have to replace our smartphone every year when it comes to switching, it doesn’t matter how much we can pass on our used devices or just how much they are charged by manufacturers or service providers.

A BankMyCell from the survey it turned out that the offset price of top-of-the-line Android devices is 33.62 percent less than the original price a year after its release, while that of iPhones is only 16.7 percent. After two years, the former saw a 61.5% drop and the latter a 35.7 percent drop.

Comparing the two most important device families of 2019, the Samsung Galaxy S20 and the iPhone 11, a similar ratio can also be seen: while the sleek S20 is worth 34.78% less, the iPhone 11 is only 12.84% ; depreciation is 30.59% and 21.31% for the S20 + and iPhone 11 Pro, and 36.3% and 15.96% for the S20 Ultra and iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Among the least valuable are Google Pixel devices, of which Pixel 4 saw a drop of 40.56%, but Sony, Motorola and HTC also did not perform very well (39.51%, 42, 57% and 53.08% of the fall seen after 12 months).

A BankMyCell side a table is also shown, which contains many devices. The values ​​show how the offset price of each device changed between 2020 and 2021.
