Calculate Value: How the price comparison without trouble

How much can I get more for my used phone - whether dual SIM or another model? You can quickly find out by querying the large buying exchanges in a few clicks. And so it goes:
  1. Calling Portal - eg wirkaufens.de, rebuy.de or right to check price
  2. Enter your phone model (if you do not know the exact name, you can also "click through": first identify only the manufacturer and then filter and so gradually their model based on the model)
  3. Future state - this is asking for damages and operability. This step is done with four or five clicks usually very fast
  4. The bid price is displayed
to do these 4 steps at three or four portals, lasts no longer than a quarter or half an hour.
For comparison, one should then look at Amazon and eBay, which require your cell as used goods seller there. Because of course the dealer hit something on it to make himself well. If the difference between buying and selling price is relatively low (about 10-50 euros), the immediate past via a purchasing portal is usually better - because it saves the entire expenses and any costs of having to arrange the sale itself. If the difference between the buying and selling prices to be very large, perhaps that is individual sale through an auction promising.

More Price Comparison: surprises and all time favorite iPhone

Generally, the prices are very similar, no matter what the great & Sell portals to look up. Nevertheless, the comparison is worthwhile. Even if there are only 10 or 20 euros, you get more - why would you sell his cell phone under value?

Because the value does not necessarily depend on the quality or features of the old smartphones - but by how popular the model is still. Some exotics, including some dual SIM phones are difficult to estimate, because they often do not appear in the phone lists of buyers. In addition, the dual SIM phones were until about two years often relatively poorly equipped. Therefore, they are sometimes less interesting for customers looking for used mobile phones. In this case, sometimes comes only the individual sales in question - or you can at least make an other pleasure by his donates mobile . An exception is in fact always the iPhone, even after several generations change still brings quite high prices. So 5 as many Ankäufern are still commanded well over 200 euros for a well-maintained iPhone. The more memory, the better: whether to sell a 16 GB or 64 GB model, making financially noticeable.
