The question is simple: when you buy a phone, how much does the resale value factor into what you choose to buy?
Same and then some. I have 3 kids who are now old enough to have, or even need them (with such active lives where mom and dad can’t always be with them) so my current phone will be one of kid’s when I upgrade. By the time they’re done with it, it won’t be worth much.Not much these days, I pass my phones on to the mussus
God yes I've said it here myself - a phone rental service would save me a fortune over the course of a year. The ability to jump to new device when I wanted ... No need to sell or trade off old devices.Personally I'd love a "phone rental" service as I do love to switch phones (not as much as some of the others, mind ) - would love to pay £50 to rent a phone for 2 months, then switch to the latest one.
As a result, purchase value (I look for bargains) is crucial, and ultimately resale price plays a big part too - and timing. I wouldn't spend £1000 a year switching phones, that's too reckless for my situation. But don't mind losing out on say 25% of the phone's purchase price.
