Always buying new doesn’t always have to make sense, and that doesn’t just apply to buying a car. Smartphones are also cheaper today if you buy second-hand devices.

Always buying new doesn’t always have to make sense, and that doesn’t just apply to buying a car. Smartphones are also cheaper today if you buy second-hand devices. According to recent studies, second-hand smartphones are becoming more popular and sales of used devices are gradually increasing. Only 13 percent of people surveyed said in a Yougov survey that they never wanted to buy or use a used smartphone.

Of course, several factors are decisive in being open to used devices, but the significantly lower price should play a role in the first place. I would like to hook this point myself, because there are different types of devices used. Of course, refurbished models from dealers are usually a bit more expensive and buying them privately can lead to significant savings. The condition is also decisive for the price.

“27% of respondents can imagine buying their next used smartphone if it is in good condition and can save 50% or more on the new price.”

Used devices are often not used in the closet.

According to Shpock and Yougov, a large number of devices are still not used on the four walls of people. Some people avoid selling on Shpock, Ebay and Co., while others like to have a backup available in case the current device suffers from a defect. Just buy a new smartphone, not everyone can afford it.

“Almost one in three (29%) say they accumulate a working smartphone in their own home that they no longer use. In the younger generation (18-24 years) this is even 38%. Rather than letting the old cell phone collect dust, more and more people are turning the old model into cash. “

However, you can also see on Shpock that more and more people want to convert their used devices into money and thus partially refinance their new smartphone.
