  • Apple's iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Devices Still Going for Higher Than Retail Prices on Ebay


    It has been over a month since Apple’s iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices have launched, but it’s been reported that they are still going for higher than retail prices on Ebay and Taobao. Analyst Gene Munster and his team have been looking at iPhone 6 resale prices on the sites, going back to the last 50 devices sold for each model. Apple has basically caught up with all the iPhone 6 demands according the report. However, the Cupertino-based company is still having trouble keeping up with the larger 5.5-inched iPhone 6 Plus.

    Resale value of the iPhone 6 has gone from 115% of its suggested retail price from a week after launch, to 94% 42 days after launch. The iPhone 6 Plus however is still being resold at 124% of its retail price according to the report. The report mentioned that when the iPhone 5s was released, 42 days after it debuted, the device was only sold at 119% of its retail price.

    Research also shows that Apple’s iPhone when compared to Samsung devices, holds their value very well. 42 days after the Galaxy S5 debuted, it is now only worth 81% of its retail price and the Galaxy Note III is worth only 67%. After all the research, Munster has suggested that even with the ‘bendgate’ controversy, demand for the new device has been unaffected. Due to the release of Apple’s new iPhones, the older iPhone 5s and 5c resale values have declined.

      I look at this butinstead of thinking, ‘Great work Apple you have a winner’, I think to myself. 'I can’t believe you ******bags would pay over the odds for a phone!’.
      Get a life man, it’s just a phone.

      You should direct some of your hatred to people who spend millions on Italian super cars.

      Hey, I'll admit it. If I lived somewhere where Apple didn't ship the iPhone six, I'd pay more for it. When it came out, I didn't care how much it was. I wanted it, so I got it. Money has no value except for what you can get with it.

      Once the supplies level out, this will cease.
