Prices for a used smartphone generally drop over time, but not always month to month. And in some cases, the value may actually increase a little. For example, the average sale price for a 256GB iPhone SE (2020) began at $396 in March 2021 and climbed to $405 in April 2021 before falling back to $392 in May 2021 and later falling to $344 in December 2021. The iPhone SE 64GB model saw similar price changes, and you can get one now for as low as $170 on Swappa!
There are several factors to keep in mind when considering the value of a used smartphone. If a phone is in good condition and has more internal storage space it will most likely sell for more. Of course, market demand also plays an important role. If buyers aren’t buying, sellers may opt to decrease prices to attract potential buyers. Alternatively, if there are fewer models available at any given time, sellers may be able to increase the price a little bit.
