This offer currently only allows exchanging and selling Samsung handheld products (HHP). So users can’t sell phones of other models. We have found that third-party exchange services also provide really good value. We tested this Arkophone exchange service and for the Galaxy Note 9, it shows Rs 57,696. To be honest it is around the second-hand market price these days. Devices on warranty with all accessories get more value. Price is decreased drastically if there is any problem. This is normal because no one gives more for a faulty product.

Estimation service and Exchange
Usually, people do the estimation of smartphones in shops. There are no set of rules and limitations. So everything depended on their mood and rules. Here Samsung has a bar with set maximum value and the Arko phone website shows the maximum price, the company can offer for the old phone or tablet. Users can get the maximum price for their old Samsung phone if it is in pristine condition. Many people take really good care of their phones and this can give good value.
If there are more scratches, broken screen and not working feature then price decreases. In the website, there is a list of problems and users can select them if there is any. This does decrease the evaluation of old mobile or device. When everything is done, users get final offering price and if it is acceptable then users can confirm it using IMEI number and their details. After that, the estimate can be taken to Samsung Plaza and showroom in order to sell your old device and buy a new Samsung phone.
Samsung mobile exchange service was what we were needing and here it is. It is very good because they are also accepting Tablets. Selling tablet in second hand and exchanging is pretty hard but here we get the option. One thing the Arkophone service shows is the importance of the VAT bill, box, and original accessories. Other third-party exchange service providers also give a good price when there are all genuine and original accessories. So next time you buy a new device, keep everything safe.
