Hello forum
I am thinking about to put my Jet Black iPhone 7 128GB on sale. Do the Jet Black color have any advantages over the other colors with same amount of storage? Higher storages option as well a little more rare = Able to get a higher price?

And if so, how much do you think?


Thanks in advance.

Depends on the condition, but I guess you will be able to sell it for a bit more expensive than the same phone in Silver.

The Jet Black color was certainly Apple's most popular color at one point. But since inventory is well in stock and the new iPhone is upon us, it's not In demand as once was.

For resale, I would compare your model to
Swappa and see what they are selling for
With the storage and condition.

As I can see Swappa is only for American? I am an european and has been comparing it, but over here there is really no iPhone 7 in Jet Black for sale in the used market. Only other color-options.

The mini-scratches may put the phone a little down in price of course, but other than that it is fully working with no huge scratches at all.

I'm not sure what other access you have to sell for sites in Europe, but I would compare your pricing based on condition and storage over their. The price will likely continue to drop as we near the iPhone 8 launch, as others will start selling their iPhones who plan to upgrade.

I'd pay for jet black less than for any other colour. It will have scratches you can't avoid that.

This is a good point. Especially used, depending how it was taken care of, used could show a lot of use with the Jet Black color. It would all depend how it was taken care of.
