On February 20th, Samsung unveiled their newest flagship smartphones for 2019: the Samsung Galaxy S10e ($749), Galaxy S10 ($899), and Galaxy S10+ ($999). The phones are packed to the brim with new hardware features, software improvements, and a unique “punch hole” front facing camera design. Pre-orders are already live, with Galaxy S10 units already arriving on peoples’ doorsteps.
Of course, not everyone needs the latest and greatest technology. There are plenty of folks who don’t mind to staying a year or two behind smartphone manufacturers’ yearly release schedule in order to avoid paying the crazy high prices on new retail phones. It’s a solid strategy, allowing budget minded people to save hundreds of dollars by sticking to older devices from yesteryear.
There has been lots of new technological advancements in recent years, with better cameras, bigger batteries, faster wireless speeds, and even water resistant devices that can withstand a dunk in the toilet. For those who’ve been pushing the limits of their old phone and feel like it’s finally time to finally upgrade, Swappa can help.
With the recent unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S10, older Galaxy phones are now cheaper than ever. Just like we’ve seen with a new iPhone release, new models signal big price drops on older models and the recent introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S10 is no different. Prices for used Galaxy phones have plummeted, so if you’ve been holding out in hopes of finding a killer deal on a used Galaxy S9, Galaxy S8, or Galaxy S7 — now’s your time to strike.

A huge upgrade from the previous year’s Galaxy S7, the Galaxy S8 was easily the most refined version of Samsung’s mobile hardware to date. This was thanks to the phone’s small bezels and curved “Infinity Displays” coming standard on both small and large models. They’ve aged exceptionally well and still look great to this day.
So, is the Galaxy S8 worth it in 2019? One word: yes. The phone is chock-full of hardware features.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 was first released back in 2017. Unlike more recent Galaxies — or even the larger S7 Edge variant — the smaller Galaxy S7 features a traditional flat display. It was also the first Galaxy flagship to feature water resistance and the last to use a screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Be all that as it may, the S7 still has a few things going for it, namely its gorgeous 5.1-inch 1440p Quad HD display and headphone jack. You’ll find more modern luxuries like wireless charging, although the phone uses the older micro USB port for wired charging. It’s definitely not a bad starter phone, especially considering used pricing is so incredibly low.
