    Nokia.

    I can vouch for it, we have 90 phones for sales on www.pc-direct.co.za and we sell far more Nokias than anything else, which means the resale will be quicker and easier too..

    It depends on the condition of the actual phone. But yes, Nokia's sell quicker and their value shouldn't decrease as quick as others. That's just my opinion though.

    + 1*10^999 - Apple doesn't release a new model every few weeks like Nokia etc. hence it doesn't really get 'old' like other cellphones do.

    Nokia:

    1. They are generally more popular with Joe Public.

    2. On most Nokia's it is possible to exchange covers and so make it look good again! Generic covers (housings if you prefer) are generally of better quality! So people don't mind buying a scruffy phone...

    3. Accessories are easy to get.

    without a shadow of a doubt the phone with the highest resale value is the iPhone. look at the second hand prices for FIRST generation iPhone's and then look at the second hand prices on some of nokias newest phones. iPhone simply wins. hands down.

    Vertu wins hands down, you should check the second hand pricing on one of them. iPhone doesn't come close.

    That makes no sense. The iphone resells better because its development is stagnant? The Nokia doesnt sell because you will always buy the latest model second hand? Right...
