A report by cell phone trade-in site BankMyCell has some great news for current or prospective Nokia smartphone buyers. As per this report, Nokia smartphones are the best Android smartphones in terms of resale value.
In fact, Nokia smartphones are second only to the iPhones when it comes to holding onto their values, claims the report. As you can see in the image above, Apple devices lost an average value of -25.98% between Jan – Dec 2019 while Nokia devices lost an average value of -27.68% between Jan – Dec 2019.
Coming to other Android smartphones you can see a steep increase in value loss as we move down from Nokia to Sony to HTC to Samsung and others. So, while Android smartphones are doing much worse as a whole when compared to iPhones in terms of value depreciation, Nokia smartphones hold their own against Apple.
