Today marks the beginning of a new month, September, which means we can take a few minutes to look back and see which phones made the best-selling list for August 2021. We are also eagerly anticipating the upcoming Apple event and taking guesses about how a new iPhone might change the best-selling list for this month. After all, a new iPhone means lots of sellers will be listing their gently used iPhones as a way to fund their upgrades.
Continue scrolling to check out the top ten best-selling used phones for the month of August.
Top selling used phones from August 2021
When Swappa launched in 2010 the marketplace was full of Android smartphones. In fact, at the time, listings were limited to Android smartphones. But over the years, the iPhone has taken the lead on Swappa, and the top-selling used phones list is generally dominated by the iPhone.
The month of August holds true to that statement with seven of the top ten smartphones being iPhones. The three Android smartphones are all from Samsung and include the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10 Plus. Coincidentally, these were the same three Android smartphones that were on the best-selling list for July 2021.
There are also quite a few similarities in the iPhone models. Many of the models were the same if you compare July to August, but we are seeing some interesting changes in position. Notably, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 appear to be getting overtaken by some newer models such as the iPhone Xr and iPhone 11. Of course, the iPhone 7 is sitting in the sixth spot, and the iPhone 8 is sitting in the third spot, so it doesn’t look like they are being kicked off the list just yet.
Buy and sell your used phone with Swappa
We always enjoy looking back to see which smartphones are the most popular with Swappa buyers and sellers. But this list is also being shared in an effort to help buyers and sellers. The best-selling list will help buyers get an idea of what they can expect to pay, and it will help sellers get an idea of what smartphones are in high demand. Of course, as a tip for sellers — prices tend to drop slightly going from month to month, so if you have a smartphone that is just sitting around unused — remember that right now is the best time to sell.
While Swappa may have its roots in Android smartphones, that isn’t the case in 2021. As of today you can find a wide variety of gently used tech in the Swappa marketplace, including some new categories that were just recently introduced — iMac and Mac Mini computers, as well as Nvidia GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards.
