What Do You Do With Your Old Smartphones? by TechRez(m): 9:12am On Nov 18, 2015
Several mobile vendors like Samsung have earned a notorious reputation for the mass production of smartphones that leaves users confuse. But the big question is what do you do to your old smartphone when manufacturers start enticing you with their latest flagships? Do you save your old phone, trade it in or sell it?

Phones have been around for decades, but it wasn’t too long before they became mainstream in Nigeria. Thanks to Chinese OEM’s targeting Nigeria as their primary mobile market, the availability of smartphones has increased tremendously.

There are platforms like OLX where you can easily dispose off your old smartphones. This has been fairly effective; however, a system where users can trade in their smartphones in Nigeria is very unpopular.

For me, a system where we can donate our old smartphones to charity would have been fantastic. There are several times I wanted to give out one of my old smartphones to someone I really don’t know and certain that she needs it. But it’s always a burden as nothing of such exists in Nigeria to the best of my knowledge.

What about you? What do you do with your old smartphones?
