The mobile phone market is very dynamic. Phone brands develop and launch new cell phone models every six months to a year, to encourage consumers to upgrade their phones from the previous year’s version. Take for example the Apple iPhone 11 Pro and Samsung’s Galaxy A20s, which were recently launched, and as expected buyers rushed to grab the new ones as soon as they were available.
As a consumer, we always want to upgrade our phones to get the latest features: faster running processors, more built-in storage, better camera, bigger screen, etc. And if you do decide to upgrade, you might wonder… What to do your old cell phone, and could it be worth money?! When it comes to disposing of a used mobile phone, there are a few options – you could donate it to an electronics recycling program, OR you could sell it… But how much is my phone worth?

You could visit a local mobile store or trade it in directly to the brand store like Apple. But another option to sell your used cell phone is through an online platform. Visit Cell Clinic to learn more about selling your used cell phone online - to receive an etransfer or PayPal payment.
