Samsung Galaxy S22 models depreciate three times as fast as iPhone 13 lineup two months after launch

Samsung’s Galaxy S22 series of smartphones depreciated almost three times as much as the iPhone 13 lineup in the first two months after they hit the market, according to research by used digital product research firm SellCell. Samsung announced the Galaxy S22 series in February, almost five months after Apple’s iPhone 13 series. Just two months after its launch, the overall value of the S22 series lost 46.8%.

Things weren’t much better for the Google Pixel 6, which lost 41.5% of its value two months after its launch. In both cases, that’s a sizable depreciation compared to the iPhone 13 models, which lost only 16.8% of their value two months after launch. The Galaxy S22 is also the only smartphone series that continues to depreciate in value, not experiencing any rebound in value after launch, unlike both the iPhone and Pixel.

The 128GB Samsung Galaxy S22+ 5G was the worst model in terms of value retention, losing 53.8% of its value by the second month, while the 128GB Pixel 6 Pro lost 44.2% of its value. On the other hand, the worst performing iPhone model was the 128GB iPhone 13 mini, which lost 29.2% of its value by the second month.

The top-performing Samsung model was the 128GB Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G, which lost 41.7% two months after launch, but this was beaten again by the 128GB Pixel 6, which lost 33.1%. The top-performing iPhone model, the 128GB iPhone 13 Pro Max, lost a paltry 3.8% of its value over that time period.

SellCell’s findings suggest that Android phones still have some way to go in terms of long-term value preservation compared to iPhones.
