The phone just came out in September. Its worth about 50% the retail price. It has nothing to do with being an iPhone. The S and Notes sell for just as much if not more. I can buy a brand new S5 retail for $350 and its still way more phone vs the iPhone 6. I have never sold any phone I have owned for less than 50% of its retail value, not counting what I paid for it. I use to buy on contract and still sold them for 50% to 70% retail. The Note 4 for Verizon is 699. I sold mine to get the S6 Edge. I got $475 on eBay. That is well above 50% retail. I could ahve gotten more. But I wanted to sell it fast so I could pay 1/2 on the S6 so I am closer to paying for it when the Note 5 comes out and I upgrade on Verizon Edge. Yes the iPhone resale value is higher than most androids. So? Why would anyone compare a flagship to phones that aren't. That is stupid. Its like saying a Ferrari has a higher resell value vs a Yugo.

Just wait for Asus Zenfone Selfie (or any other selfie-centric phone) to come out. Can't anyone be patient with that? It's just overpriced.

I don't think there is a "technically" here. But while we are at it, selfie is a much better word, at least to me, since it describes the action of someone holding the phone to take photos of himself or herself, of even... ourselves or themselves or whatever-self. "Groufie" just doesn't describe that at all. B-)

Groufie? It's actually wefie (not wi-fi).
