    So I just became a Verizon customer, coming from tmobile (iPhone 5S). Instead of getting abother iPhone 5S I got the galaxy S5 since it's newer, I'm only going to sell which phone I decided to go with and put that money towards the new iPhone 6 that releases. Don't really care for the galaxy S5 I got I mean it's okay. So do you think I should keep the galaxy because I may be able to sell it for more VS me getting another iPhone 5S which is a year old now basically? I know iphones hold their value but.......hmmmmmm

    Since the S5 just came out last week it would make sense that it would have a higher resale price. In addition, the rumors of a new iPhone coming can sometimes lower the resale value of the current model.

    Besides that, you stated that you don't care for the S5. Seems like that would be the best one to sell.

    On Swappa S5's are going for a bit more than the iPhone right now. Around $550. I think you'd have better luck selling the S5.

    I would sell the S5 now and then sell the 5S later as iPhones drops in value slower.

    Android devices drop pretty quick. iPhones tend to hold their value.

    Sell the cheap plastic phone asap, the 5s will bring more over time.
