Here is what a Samsung Galaxy S III costs second hand

Here is what a Samsung Galaxy S III costs second hand
Several months have already passed since the Samsung Galaxy S III was released by the major U.S. wireless carriers. Most of the people who have bought one are probably still holding on to it. Nobody can blame them for doing so since the Galaxy S III is a pretty awesome smartphone. Having played with it for a long time now, we aren't surprised that the device has been selling by the truckloads.

A fraction of Samsung Galaxy S III owners, however – users who want to get rid of the smartphone for one reason or another, have tried selling it to someone looking for a second-hand unit. And it is quite interesting to know that the price of a used Galaxy S III may vary significantly, depending on a number of factors. These factors include not only its storage capacity and the time it has been used for, but also its color and the carrier it is attached to, as it is described in the infographic below.

Research has shown that the most valuable second-hand Samsung Galaxy S III model is the one sold by T-Mobile. Sprint's version, however, is on the other end of the spectrum as used units are being sold for about $100 less. The white Galaxy S III is, without a doubt, the most sought-after variant of the smartphone.

I won my s3 in Verizon's world of win contest and sold it so I could afford the note 2.

Interestingly in my salespeople were willing to pay more for the pebble blue than the white. And I got rid of my white one for 450.

I should have pulled the trigger on black friday when someone was selling 5 brand new white international S3 on ebay for $330. But I spent too long debating if it was a scam. He had sold only 5 items all with good comments. They were probably stolen.

That's why the CRAPY IPHONE 5 :

"13% of iPhones 5 replaced an Android phone (in the US).

— Horace Dediu (@asymco) November 27, 2012"

"Apple reclaims the smartphone share top from Android in the US, buoyed by the iPhone 5 sales

You do know that there a lot more Android devices out there than IOS right? So yeah, the two top dogs might lose some to the other every now and then.

My girl switched to the iPhone 5 because she thought it was the s***. Just because her girlfriends have them and they're pretty. Then she found out after owning it for one week that it really is the s*** literally. She keeps telling herself that she will get used to it.

I also see a lot of dudes on Mini Coopers talking on iPhones while driving. We should make a poll to see what IOS users and Android users drive.

Just bought a brand new white 32gb international S3 for $295.35. Hopefully it's not a scam.
