    So according to Best Buy it seems that the new design for the Galaxy S6 doesn't change the resale value for it at all. Just out of curiosity I decided to go check how Best Buy offered for both the Galaxy S6 and the iPhone 6 both with a 64 GB configuration and on Sprint and they offer $265 for the Galaxy S6 and $280 for the iPhone 6. It just seems no matter a premium like the Android phones get the resale value will not hold up very well.

    The resale, value at least for us geeks, shouldn't be measured for how much you can get as a trade-in in any store, those prices are simply a shame, those are structured for a robbery against us.

    Just go to swappa and you will see that the Unlocked versions are selling for around $425 and the carriers versions for an average of $450, that's the real resale value, and even better when you can sell there for just a $10 fixed fee.

    I've used swappa before just not for selling. I normally would just pay like $50 when I go get a new phone using the subsidized price. But seeing how carriers are ditching those selling the phone through swappa might be the best option in the future. I'm just saying is a shame how stores don't devalue the iPhone just as fast and how they pretty much don't even give you half the value of the phone but yet charge you an arm and a leg to get it.

    The iPhone 6 is more expensive that the galaxy s6 so should trade in for more. Last week a brand new iPhone 6 was $650, while a brand new s6 was $570.

    I agree with that but the thing is the iPhone 6 is already a year old, and the S6 is like 6 months. So the S6 shouldn't be lower than the iPhone 6 yet.

    IPhone holds its value more than Samsung, especially iPhone 6 vs S6. This value for you trade in shouldn't be a surprise.
