Be familiar with the specifications

Apart from this, finding out about the CPU and GPU could also be a bonus, as you will get an idea of where it stands in the current market. Be prepared to answer these questions, so that it will make you seem more knowledgeable and thereby give you the upper hand when it comes to negotiating the price.

If you have all the accessories that came with the device, still in working condition, you can add these as well, to increase the value of it. This will include third party products such as the anker powerline micro usb as well, as these tend to be essential accessories that go with your device. If you are using a screen protector on the phone, it will go to show that you have taken diligent care of the screen and thereby, makes it look a lot newer once you take it off. Replacing the screen protector with a new one will help you improve the condition of it. Selling a smartphone is not always going to be easy. These tips should help you with making a better sale.
