Over the last three years we have seen SmartPhones increase in popularity as countless people across the world are willing to pay £200+ for a phone that will let them do just about anything. With the boom of the SmartPhone we can expect to see older models fade away into the background as the likes of HTC and Apple who currently hold a strong position in the market , setting up for the 4G Generation of mobile devices in the near future.
What happens to all these older models of phones though? A lot of us tend to throw them to the backs of cupboards and store them away, never to see the light of day again. As we enter an era of recycling, and being green there are many phone buyers out there that will give you money for these old phones which not only help you with some extra cash but you can also feel the benefit of doing something good for the environment by selling them to recyclers.
We have all seen adverts for Mazuma and Envirofone, but this concept is still fairly new. Even more so are comparison sites for this service that allow you to make the most back for your mobile phone. Sites such as SellMyMobile.com provide a comprehensive search facility and compare all the leading phone buyers in the UK.
Even though the SmartPhone strong hold continues there are a good portion of the population that just won’t spend over £100 for a phone, or they simply don’t want to get used to a brand new phone that has touch screen capabilities and a plethora of features. One thing we can be sure of is that by 2013 SmartPhones will make up at least 40% of the market.
