iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus just released six weeks ago in September 2017, but some owners have been interested in removing these devices in exchange for iPhone X.
At least that’s what Decluttr.com observes, a site selling and buying used electronic devices operating in the United States and Britain.
The number of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus that dilego owners to Decluttr more than previous iPhone models, so that surprises the manager of the site concerned.
“We think people will only sell the iPhone 7 (to buy the iPhone X), but it seems the iPhone 8 owners are not satisfied with the device,” says Declin Marketing digital manager James Bell.
“This has never happened before. We have never found that much iPhone try to sell by Owners within a month after the release, “said Bell, as summarized KompasTekno from Phone Arena, Tuesday (31/10/2017).
Dclutter said the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus contributed 7 percent of the number of smartphones purchased by the site last month. The contribution of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in the same period last year was much less, ie 1 percent.
Why are iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus faster resold by their owners in a relatively short time after they are purchased? Bell said, the main cause is none other than the iPhone X which will soon release to the market this week.
“Our consumers feel the iPhone 8 is very similar to the iPhone 7. They want to feel the face recognition technology (in iPhone X), especially iPhone X is likely to be limited,” Bell explained.
Decluttr itself offers a purchase price of 430 US dollars for the iPhone 8 64 GB, while the 256 GB model priced at 450 US dollars. For the iPhone 8 Plus, Decluttr fix the purchase price of 525 US dollars (64 GB) and 600 US dollars (256 GB).
