This IDC Survey Spotlight highlights vital results from IDC's 2022 Consumer Smartphone Survey, focusing on the purchase of refurbished smartphones by the U.S. consumer smartphone market. The survey was fielded in June 2022 and included 2,118 respondents from consumers across the United States. In addition, this document examines consumers' purchase intention and brand preference when buying a refurbished device.

"Due to slim margins for channel partners, the digital landscape has gained traction in recent years due to the more affordable operations costs," said Kafil Merchant, senior research analyst, IDC's Devices. "With ASPs continuing to climb and inflation at its all-time high, consumer spending power is shrinking. As a result, affordability is a key factor when consumers select their next smartphone."
