Pixel resale value

Typically when upgrading to a next generation device I’ll list my old device on eBay to recoup some of my cost. Generally, I’ve found with iPhones despite their being two years old when being sold I get over 50% their original purchase cost.

In February, I purchased the Google Pixel 6 as I was getting increasingly frustrated with certain aspects of iOS. This phone had a lower cost entry point as well as lacking the bloat I knew existed on Samsung devices, so I decided to use this as my Android test bed. Ultimately I was unhappy with certain aspects of Pixel 6, particularly its screen.

I held onto the device for several months despite switching back to iPhone once more in early April, continuing to update apps and the system just in case I once again decided to Android not iOS; that never eventuated and in mid-July I decided to list on eBay.

Despite only being several months old, and a current generation device, the Pixel 7 not yet announced, on-sale value of the Pixel 6 was not a patch on the iPhone of the same age. Last year when moving to the iPhone 12 Pro Max, I sold a 1 year old iPhone 11 Pro and managed a 75% return on purchase cost, whilst the Pixel 6 managed only 60.8%, a significantly lower and disappointing return.
