Anyone who thought that discount days like Black Friday or Cyber Monday and the weeks before and after Christmas were the best times for cheap bargains is not necessarily right. There are numerous sales and promotions around the holidays, but 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 cell 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 Blliger.de experts observed the price developments of various smartphones from Apple, Huawei, OnePlus and Samsung over the course of the year. It turned out that the prices of mobile phones will 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 before buying 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 loss of value 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 on average up to 300 euros cheaper.
