Smartphones like every other commodity usually lose their worth as they get older. Even brand new smartphones still lose a good chunk of its worth after a couple of years. Technically, two years is enough for a smartphone to completely lose its worth. Let’s take Samsung for instance…very few people still talk about the Galaxy S9 series presently? This smartphone comes with the Snapdragon 845 chipset which many will consider having a “mid-range” performance presently. This is exactly how the Samsung Galaxy S20 series will be in two years. However, the South Korean manufacturer just launched a guaranteed repurchase program that “retains” the worth of this flagship.
This new plan allows Samsung users to recover 50% of the Galaxy S20 series purchase price after two years. Samsung calls this plan a “50% repurchase guarantee”. If users buy any of the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, or Galaxy S20 Ultra and treat it properly, they can return it to Samsung after two years and Samsung will give users half the purchase costs. Please note that this is not a trade-in plan. This is a plan that allows you to return the smartphone in a good condition and get half the purchase fee.
