Swappa Launches Boneyard; Buy and Sell Accessories, Broken Devices, and More
Swappa is XDA’s official marketplace for buying and selling gently used mobile devices because it has earned the trust of the community. With no seller fees, stringent requirements on the quality of devices that can be listed, and amazing customer service, we can’t imagine why anyone would use eBay. However, one thing that Swappa has lacked was a place to sell accessories, parts, and phones with broken screens. That has changed with the introduction of the Swappa Boneyard.
In Swappa Boneyard, you can find devices in need of repair (often times you can buy one of these devices, fix the component yourself, and save a lot of money), cases, Bluetooth accessories, and even wireless chargers. We’re excited to see our friends at Swappa continue to evolve and be a great service for the mobile community.

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
