    Wow those are some pretty precise numbers! My very unofficial expierence having owned, iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and Windows devices, is that iOS devices hold their value the best. Android device initially hold value, BUT since they turn over so quickly, they do drop more dramatically later in their life cycle. BlackBerry and Windows devices have a VERY small window to hold value, and drop rather dramatically rather quickly. Hold on to a BB on Windows phone for a year or two and then you got a paper weight. . (I'm exaggerating a little)

    Yeah.
    I agree. In many countries that i was , iphone known as luxury phone. And rich people have iphone. One of reasons that iphone can hold value maybe is that..
    And Apple each year produce only a phone.. This is another reason..
    Iphones can hold their quality for many years and get ios updates..

    Used my phone without a case for 24 hours. I have a tempered glass on there but was just too scared of scratching up my $700+ investment.

    Just curious where you're getting your depreciation % numbers...because I'm not seeing that kind of price drop here in the states whatsoever, and I can't imagine it being THAT much different in other countries, especially in some of those where demand is still pretty high for them.

    Right now on eBay (which is a pretty good representation of market value in the U.S.), a used unlocked iPhone 6 64GB is going for $650-$700 depending on color. A brand new iPhone 6 from Apple is $749...so using the magic of math, depreciation at WORST is 12-15%, and at best is 5-7%.

    The numbers you're listing there seem awfully unbelievable. There's no way people are seeing consistent 25-30% depreciation on the latest model iPhones. You're probably either seeing %'s that are based on very small sample sizes or those numbers are just BS.

    Tnx . In middle east , east Europa and Africa , sellers write a wonderful law between each other.. They never buy any iphone after a week more than 70 percent of new model price.. I have seen this matter many times..
    But as you said, 10 percent price drop is usual ..

    Seriously, iPhones have amazing resale value, along with an other Apple products. My friend recently picked up an OG iPad and it cost him $175 I believe. What other 5 year old piece of used electronics sell for that much?

    Again, I ask where you're getting your numbers...I just looked at a few asian market and european market sites for resale and I'm seeing almost identical depreciation %'s as the US (which is what I've seen for years and years).
