Galaxy S9 has Apple fans rushing to offload their four-month-old iPhone X

Apple fans are rushing to dump their four-month-old iPhone X for the Galaxy S9, according to new data.

Information shared by online trade-in outlet musicMagpie reveals that there has been an astonishing 184 percent increase in iPhone X trade-ins since Samsung took the wraps off its flagship Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus at the end of February.

musicMagpie also noted that overall smartphone trade-ins, which include handsets from the likes of BlackBerry and Motorola, have spiked by 120 percent – hinting that Samsung’s latest flagship could be a hit with customers in the United Kingdom.
