    I recently sold my iPhone 5S 16GB, mainly due to the space limit and screen size. Im thinking about keeping my next purchase for a year.

    Which iPhone 6 model would keep its resale value at the highest?
    A 16GB iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus or a 64GB one?

    What about the 5S 32GB, would that be a bad purchase when it comes to resale value? I do prefer the iPhone 5S design over the iPhone 6.

    I'd say the Plus at 16gb for 2 reasons really

    1.) The general population is perfectly fine with the 16gb model (not everyone is a Macrumors person who goes on forums and needs 64-128gb haha)

    2.) Say what you will, but the Plus is new and exciting. It's the first of its kind (phablet) from Apple and there's buzz around it. It may be somewhat of a more niche market you're selling to but I don't think it will hinder any kind of resell value

    For what it's worth, I have sold both Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3 recently and had A LOT more responses about my Note 3 than my S5.
