Selling Iphone 5 dented how much will it knock off value?

I'm considering selling my iphone 5 and rebuying as Apple quoted 182 for a small dent on the corner..bit crazy.

I hate phone cases so unfortunately I just had a soft case, slipped and it's all chipped/dented. Works fine though.

Is it achievable to still get 450 for it?

Put it up for sale and see what you get? No one can really say for now because very few damaged phones have been put up for sale. But maybe the fact that they're still in high demand will mean someone will want it.

You hate cases.

You hate dents.

That's odd. Most who hate cases don't mind a few dents.

You don't want to pay to replace the phone but think you can make money by selling a dented phone and buying a new one. Is that possible?

Does it make sense to keep selling a dented phone to buy a new one?

I bet you could get close to what it's worth brand new right now. I sold a 16Gb iPhone 5 16GB for $800 just the other day. They are hard to get a hold of so they are worth a lot even with a small dent.

How big is the dent? In any case, you're ridiculous.
