Chart shows how Fast the Galaxy S9 May Lose Value After Launch

A study by Decluttr, a market analysis, and repurchase site, presented a chart that shows how quickly our cell phones – especially line tops – lose their value right after launch.

While it is a repurchase service on a platform that you need to add a profit margin to report numbers, you can still see the depreciation of a product over its lifetime.

Statistics reveal that the Galaxy S8 , with its launch price of $ 720 (something around $ 2,300 in our currency), as well as the new Galaxy S9 , could be brought back by 46% of the first month post-premiere, which is when the biggest loss of value usually occurs, with subsequent months showing only 1 to 2% of depreciation on average.

Decluttr has found that iPhones maintain some overall stability compared to Android phones. Either way, the decline in value also happens on Apple’s land – no one is immune to it.

Out of curiosity, the iPhone 8 lost 49% of the value in the first month after the release, while the iPhone X fell 41%.

Keep in mind that repurchase services like Decluttr are not the best standards when the subject matter is depreciation of a product, there are other platforms more suitable for this purpose.

The recent chart is just an archetype compiling data from consulting firms, but still displays a base of devices and the devaluation of each – nothing officially.

And the moral of the story? If you wait about a month after launching a top-of-the-line phone, make sure you can still find it for an attractive price out there.
