Is it worth selling my phone?

Asked by bomyne (476 points ) 2 months ago

Late last year, I bought a Samsung Galaxy Note III. The reason being that I wanted a phone with a larger screen than my iPhone 5 had, and one that could note-take.

It’s been one problem after another with this phone (as it is with all my technology, it seems… long story.). It’s Android OS is loaded down with apps I don’t need and can’t get rid of. It’s battery doesn’t seem to last very long (probably due to included apps always running)... and the very selling point of the phone, the note taking (It’s a Galaxy NOTE…), doesn’t seem to have any included apps for such a thing… Overall I just want it gone.

But I paid $899 for the thing… I have looked on Ebay… I have asked local possible buyers… The most I can hope to get from it seems to be $450 to 500… That’s about half the price I paid for it… and the phones I am considering replacing it with are all around the $800–1000 range.

What do you think? Is it worth trying to sell it knowing that I’ll only get one third to one half of what I actually paid for it?
