Resale value of iPhone 4 with colored glass

Hi,

I have a friend who is looking to sell an iPhone 4 with colored glass (front and back, and yes it should be a crime to do that to an iPhone). I know that a used iPhone 4 is going for about $250 on eBay right now... how much do you think the colored glass lowers the value?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

The iPhones wirh colored glass aren't worth much more. They may actually be worth less, because they don't have the oleophobic coating. I just sold my iPhone 4 32 GB model for $200 and it had a mirror finish on the front and back.

That's what I figured.

This is a 16 GB iPhone 4 with a green colored glass..

I was thinking around $150-200?

$150 should be a good price

I wouldn't buy it tbh green is like the ugliest color glass to put on an iPhone. Red or Gold would net you higher resale.

I think the resale value of a stock phone would be higher than one with a colored glass. I would pay less than for it personally, but to each their own.

$150 is a safe bet, too bad it's colored
