Business is booming in second-hand phones? IDC: Everyone is more willing to buy bargains

A recent IDC survey report revealed that global second-hand smartphone shipments reached 206.7 million units in 2019, an increase of 17.6% compared to 175.8 million units in 2018. In response, IDC predicts that the global secondary market will expand further in the next few years.

The performance of the second-hand mobile phone market has shown an active trend in the continued downturn of smartphones. It is not difficult to see that there is more room for development. For non-public users, the mobile phone is now updated very fast, and the used mobile phones still perform well for a period of time. The key is that the quality of the mobile phones is good, and the stability of the second-hand mobile phones is relatively reliable.

In addition, the convenience of mobile phone recycling now has led to a high turnover rate of second-hand mobile phones. For products that are no longer needed, mass users only need to go to institutions such as Love X to exchange cash or vouchers, and even self-service machines for automatic recycling.

In fact, the recycling and refurbishment of second-hand mobile phones has always been characterized by high profits and opacity. Simply put, except for official refurbished products like Apple. Most of the second-hand mobile phones that you can buy do not have the corresponding testing by the manufacturers, but are handled through the second-hand merchant's own channels for turnover. Therefore, although second-hand mobile phones are cheap, everyone should pay more attention.
