How to sell your mobile phone and get the maximum money

Google Pixel 4 XL, color Clearly White

Since today's smartphones are quite expensive, up to 800 euros for a Pixel 4 or an iPhone 11, many users prefer to dive through the second hand market when renewing the smartphone, especially since this means saving good money in most cases.

Of course when buying a second-hand terminal, what you are looking for is a device that is careful and without visible defects. Luckily, there are still a large number of people who take care of their smartphones as if they were their own children, with cases and screen protectors, so Finding a practically new second-hand phone is not very difficult in the times.

Now, what should we do in case we want to sell our device? How to prepare it? Where to announce it? Taking the maximum price to our terminal requires patience and it is not about putting an ad in a hurry on any page or forum. That is why we are going to give you a few tips to get the most money for our future mobile.

Observe prices of same models

It is clear that not all mobile phones are worth the same, nor are they devalued the same. For example, if we are going to sell a top-of-the-range Apple we are going to get much more money than a Samsung – as a general rule – regardless of whether this is the last market. Unfortunately, the sale price of Samsung and Android phones in general falls much faster than the competition, so we have to be clear.

Once this is known, We will check the price of our same model in different places of Internet. Obviously if another user sells a Huawei P30 Pro (for example) for 500 euros, it is difficult for us to sell it for 800. Although we have to take into account the state of the device, we can not put an excessively expensive or cheap price, something intermediate with respect to the rest of sellers.

If you're not in a hurry … sell it yourself!

Unless the money is needed for now and urgently, it is best to go from intermediaries and sell it for yourself. There are many physical and online shopping stores that will rate our device and pay us for it, but always be a much smaller amount than we could get in case we sell it ourselves.

Of course this requires more time and patience, especially to circumvent the amount of "trolls" that exist in the pages and second-hand applications, but the benefit that we will draw in the long run compensates for it. Whether in specialized forums like HTCMania or applications like Wallapop or Ebay, selling the device by ourselves will always be the best option.

Always protect your device … just in case

Let's be honest. Nobody is going to buy a device with a broken or scratched screen, except for a bargain price. That is why in the case that we have taken great care of the device and have no serious damage, the price at which we can sell it is higher. That means using covers and screen protectors and not everyone is willing to use them … but that's what it is.

Of course in the case that we keep the box, invoice, the device still has warranty or keep the less frequent headphones unused, the price that we can also ask to be higher. For that reason and at the risk of being labeled as having Dgenes syndrome, storing all the original material of a newly purchased terminal is highly recommended, You never know if in the future we want to sell it.

Of course and although each time – luckily – they look less, it is preferable that in the case that the terminal is an operator, unlock it.
