Cash for your old mobile phone could help buy the LG Optimus

Consumers thinking of selling old mobile phones could buy app-ready devices and find their perfect life-saving feature.

A recent study by LG Mobiles found the app market has boomed since its inception and is thought to be worth £422.2 million a year on paid-for apps alone, with most users spending up to £5 a month on apps.

With a growing popularity for apps that cover anything from saving money to those helping people to understand astronomy, recycling your old mobile phone and replacing it with an app-enabled handset could be a life-enhancing decision.

According to Tom Dunmore, editor of Stuff Magazine, investing in a smartphone or Android device like the LG Optimus could extend the lifetime of mobiles, as apps let you update a handset quickly and easily.

Android device sales have risen to 12.3 per cent from three per cent in three weeks and as the market continues to grow, selling your old mobile phone to buy an app-ready device could be a great deal.
