How much you can get for your second-hand iPhone 7 and Galaxy S8 in South Africa

Second-hand smartphones are a big market in South Africa, with many new and used phones available for sale across local classifieds websites.

Selling a smartphone can be a great way to get some quick cash, especially if you are selling a new device you received as an upgrade but do not need.

These websites allow users to post images and a description of their product in an effort to sell it.
