Which phone color retains the most value? Space gray or white?

Mine has 42 bids at $150 with 24 hours left. Pretty disappointed so far seeing as its 32gb, unlocked and comes with like 10 cases. My unlocked 5 sold for $450 with cases and some light scratches on the screen

You may have started your price out to low... I started at $200.00, I learned that the hard way back then

What's your asking price? I'm thinking of selling my AT&T Unlocked 16GB Space Grey iPhone 5S to a colleague for $350. I'm sure I might be able to get a little more via Craigslist but the phone has a couple deep scuffs on the edges. You think the price is decent?

I'm starting at 550 for a 64gb only cause Craigslist will obv lowball me anything over $400 I think will be reasonable

I did, I started at 0.99 thinking I can cause a bidding war since it worked in the past. I can always close the listing down and restart it with no worries.

Unlocked usually gets a higher price tag. I don't think the color matters. That said, I just sold my unlocked Silver 64GB 5S on Swappa for $525 :) There was a year of Apple Care left and I included 4 cases so that helped but it is much more than I could have gotten as a trade in or on Craigslist or eBay I think.

I sold my unlocked space grey 64gb 5s for $525 on eBay. Listed at buy it now for $550 with best offer. Besides those damn eBay fees, I was happy.

I wouldn't take anything under 300 since apple is giving store credit for about 310 for a 16g

I've got a brand new iPhone 5S 64GB ATT Space Gray (got it as an accidental claim after getting my iPhone 6) with Applecare+ with one remaining claim. New lighting cable and a gently used power adapter included, no headphones, also including the original packaging and documentation. I've got it listed as of last night on Craigslist for $600. Anyone think that's fair? Just wondering. I figured $550 for sure is probably decent.

600 is close to a new iPhone. But you might get it because it's 64g. Good luck.

Yah right now the 64gb brand new would cost $699 and then I've got the Applecare+ (half left, 1 accidental remaining). I figure that combined with the fact I'm not including headphones makes the actual new value around $720 plus tax. I listed it at $600, but something tells me It'll probably end up going for $550.

I was thinking between the Slate Gray model or Silver/White ones since Gold is out of stock. I am getting an Apple "new replacement" model. It can be sold as like new once I am done with it if I don't like it. I am getting it as a replacement for my S5. I am on my fifth S5 and if I don't like the 5S, I can return it, but I liked it from what I tried in store. So if I get the 5S, keep it, dislike it down the road, I wanted to see if I can flip it for $450 like new for a 16 GB unlocked to get the Nexus 6. Typically, what color retains it value the most in other words?
