Sharing XDA Marketplace Experiences

When you are tired of your actual device and want to buy a newer one, you have many options, but for  our community, we have a special place called the XDA Marketplace where you can buy, trade, or sell your device with other members.

Please note that XDA does not take any responsibility for the Marketplace.  It is simply another tool for members to use, wisely. Read and obey Marketplace rules for an easy, pleasant transaction.

A feedback indicator is shown for every member while on the marketplace, so you can read about previous experiences members had with specific members, giving you more confidence when dealing. However, the single most important tool you will need here is common sense. Here are some recommendations for you:

  •  Trade at your own Risk.
  •  No Business links allowed.
  •  If you trade by PM how do you know the person you are buying from isn’t selling the same item to 10 people? So keep all deals in the open.
  •  Don’t sell anything but phones / accessories and ensure they are not stolen.
  •  Use PayPal® whenever possible. You are responsible for your own actions.
  •  By posting on the MP you agree that you have read, understand and will abide by these rules.

I personally have completed many transactions and never had any problems.  For example, I went looking for a HTC Sensation.  At the time, there were dozens on the marketplace, so I took my time selecting deals that fit what I was looking for.  Then I found one for sale by XDA member dutchschultz.  I checked his feedback for previous transactions and contacted him.  I followed the rules, and when it was over, we had a great transaction where both were 100% satisfied. Once again, just use common sense and read every detail on every relevant thread until you get exactly what you need.

Again, keep in mind that XDA-Developers.com, its moderators, administrators, owners and legal advisors do not warrant, guarantee or endorse any item offered for sale or trade on this forum.

Want to share your tips on how you make your transactions in the comments?  Inexperienced members may appreciate it greatly.

Thanks for reading.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
