Guest Post: Comments On Galaxy S10 Leak has some observations about the recent Galaxy S10 leak? The base model is rumored to cost $885, making it Samsung’s most expensive S-model yet – a 23% increase over the Galaxy S9 launch price. Not only that, but an S10 Plus model featuring 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage is rumored to cost more than $1,800!

This is part of a trend we can expect to see more of in 2019: phone prices continue to escalate while average wages stagnate. Given how much they’ve become ingrained in everyday life, how will smartphones affect the average American household budget if prices continue to increase while wages remain stagnant? (Maybe you saw the ABC, Fox or MarketWatch coverage of our data on the total cost of smartphone ownership, which showed smartphones cost $75,000 to $300,000 over a lifetime). 

It’s a big reason more people than ever are selling their old phones: used smartphones maintain excellent value and can help offset the cost of a new phone.

For example, the Galaxy S9 is currently worth $350. Sell it, and you reduce the overall price of the S10 to $535. Flipsy helps people get more money for their old phones by instantly comparing the best offers from dozens of Trust Verified buyback stores.
