The Android smartphone that lost 95% of its value after 1 year

Decluttr, a North American company dedicated to the purchase and sale of mobile devices, now discloses the conclusions of its new study, choosing the OnePlus 5 as Android smartphone that worst retained the value after one year in the market.

The unpleasant distinction is supported by several factors, but this is not the only Android smartphone to lose much of its value. The reasons that lead to such a break, in addition to the factors that make smartphones devalue are discussed here.

The OnePlus 5 lost 91% of its value in just 12 months

Android smartphone OnePlus 5
The OnePlus 5 was announced in June 2017 by the Chinese company.

Just like a car that starts to devalue as soon as it leaves the dealership, smartphones also devalue quickly, some brands faster than others. Decluttr supports its claims with the resale value of this product.

The problems on the AMOLED screen contributed to this, with some units presenting the so-called “gelatin effect”. The OnePlus 5 was presented in the first half of 2017 by Pete Lau and Carl Pei, being a well-received product in Europe.

However, the problems that affected this device, in addition to its short life cycle – being replaced after 6 months by the OnePlus 5T – have greatly reduced its value in the second-hand market.

Analyzing the data shared by Decluttr, we see that Apple is the brand that best maintains the value of its mobile devices, the iPhone. More specifically, the manufacturer registers a break 15% in the value of iPhone 12, being the best result in the industry mobile. This means that your products are sold on the 2nd hand market at a higher price.

Apple, Samsung, Google, OnePlus and Huawei all devalue

Still, until Apple iPhone loses 51% of its value during the first year and up to 67% in the second year. Devaluation lowers the second-hand selling price of the respective mobile devices.

Android smartphones from Samsung lose up to 67% value during the first year and up to 80% in the second year. Note that the American company uses smartphones of comparable range.

The devaluation of Huawei smartphones was exacerbated by the sanctions imposed by the United States of America. By the way, your devices lose about 70% of the value in the first year and 81% in the subsequent year.

Apple maintains the reputation and privileged value of its iPhone, being the manufacturer that devalues ​​the least. This is true for 12 months, as well as 24 months or two years and for anyone who buys a second hand phone, it is a reality to take into account.

The OnePlus 5 is a bad example in the hemisphere of Android smartphones, but there are also good examples. Take, for example, the Google Pixel XL which retain a good part of their value, despite the fact that the top places are reserved for the iPhone.

Finally, it can be pointed out a great loss of value to guide the products of Chinese manufacturers. OnePlus is the stark example, with Huawei following in its footsteps, even though this is due to different factors.

LG and Samsung, being South Korean manufacturers already stand out a little, but it is certain that Google and Apple, based in the United States of America take the best in this regard.
