How much your second-hand smartphone is worth

Gumtree has launched a phone price checker service that tells you how much your second-hand smartphone is worth.

“As a country with the highest cellphone penetration per square meter in Africa, almost all of us have unused cell phones lying around. But how much can you sell it for?” said Gumtree.

The service collates the data from the Gumtree site and shows how much the selected device is being sold for on average – based on brand and model.

“This allows you to not only sell your old phone for what it’s worth, but also to determine what phones you could afford to buy.”

The price checker also allows you to see how many units of a certain device are for sale on Gumtree, and gives advice on how to price your phone to sell it fast.

We used the service to price some popular phones in South Africa. The results are below.
