Why do people buy cheap android phones

This is the best month to buy a cell phone

The best time to buy a cell phone is not in the run-up to Christmas with the Black Friday or Cyber ​​Monday discount days.

A price analysis by the price comparison portal Billiger.de has shown that March is the best month to buy a mobile phone.

However, this only applies to Android devices. The prices for iPhones from Apple hardly fluctuate over the course of the year.

Anyone who thought that discount days like Black Friday or Cyber ​​Monday as well as the weeks before and after Christmas are the best times for cheap bargains is not necessarily right. Although there are numerous sales and promotions around the holidays, sometimes a little patience can literally pay off - especially if you are looking for a smartphone. A price analysis by the price comparison portal Billiger.de has shown that the prices for mobile phones are lowest not at the end of the year, but in spring.

Price analysis: Cell phones are the cheapest this month

As part of the price analysis, the experts from Blliger.de observed the price developments of various smartphones from the brands Apple, Huawei, OnePlus and Samsung over the course of the year. The result was that cell phone prices would remain relatively constant until the end of winter. They don't fall until March. That is why the authors of the investigation also recommend waiting until March to buy a new cell phone.

Apple cell phone prices hardly fluctuate

The only exception to the rule is Apple. The prices for the iPhone hardly fluctuate or only to a very small extent. Over the course of a year, for example, the iPhone 11 has only become around 100 euros cheaper. For comparison: the depreciation of Android phones over the same period is up to 400.00 euros. Samsung devices in particular are rapidly becoming significantly more affordable. Only three months after their market launch, they are available on average up to 300 euros cheaper.
