    Ok, so I am about to buy a used iPhone 5, now I have a choice between two that have the same price, one is a 32GB in fair condition, and the other is a 16GB with AppleCare+ in fair condition, now, I want to sell for the 5S, but my question is, which would be better in resale? Both of them I plan on swapping for refurb models at the Genius Bar.

    Using logic and showing your work, which do you think would be worth more?

    Each are $300 on contract, so I couldn't tell.

    16gb is 200 and 32gb is 300

    ----------

    would depend on the value the buyer puts on apple care. Not everyone buys or wants apple care+.

    Ok, so you recommend the 32GB? Also, what I'm worried about with the 32GB is that since there is no accidental damage protection on it, I might not be able to replace it.

    Is this real life? The 32GB, seriously needed to ask that?

    I know it seems like an odd question, but they are both far from mint, with the 16, I am at least guaranteed a replacement

    heres a great notion buy a 30 dollar descent case for your 32gb , and take care of your personal computing mobile cellular communication device.

    Are they both broken? It is true that with the AppleCare+ they will replace it, but it will cost $50 and they won't just replace it for cosmetic purposes. There would need to be something wrong with be phone. Now you could just drop it and crack the screen then get a replacement. I just don't see the reason. I would go for the 32.

    I thought Applecare did do cosmetic exchanges

    Ok, the 16 is in better condition then the 32, here are pictures of each:
    All I'm asking is which one is worth more

    Ok, I think I'm going to go for the 16GB, just for security.
