These were the top selling used Android phones of 2017
Which was the best-selling used Android phone of 2017?

It's hard to tell as tracking used phones is a tough task, but Swappa - one of the most popular user-to-user services for selling and purchasing gently used tech in the US - has released its data for 2017, and you can see some interesting trends.

For starters, the top 10 of the most-traded used Android phones of 2017 consists of devices made by just two brands: Samsung and Google.


If you ever doubted Samsung's dominant hold on the US Android market, take a look at the list below, with 7 out of the 10 best selling Android phones in 2017:

  1. Samsung Galaxy S7 with an average price of $309
  2. Samsung Galaxy S6 with an average price of $199
  3. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with an average price of $368
  4. Samsung Galaxy S5 with an average price of $104
  5. Google Pixel XL with an average price of $586
  6. Nexus 6P with an average price of $293
  7. Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus with an average price of $615
  8. Samsung Galaxy S8 with an average price of $550
  9. Google Pixel with an average price of $495
  10. Galaxy Note 8 with an average price of $726

Swappa does not say exactly how many phones in total it helped people sell and buy in 2017, but does mention "hundreds of thousands", so this really sounds like a big enough sample size.

Meanwhile, would you consider buying a used phone? You could save a lot of money, but there is a certain amount of risk to it.
