Swappa on TalkAndroid

Swappa is pleased to see a good review on TalkAndroid:

As easy as it is to sell on Swappa, its arguably even easier to buy. One thing that’s particularly nice about Swappa is that it acts like a store. You don’t have to spend any time negotiating or connecting with the seller. You just buy the product like you would at any online store. Swappa is indeed special in that it is a site by Android lovers for Android lovers.

Thanks for the write-up!

Thankfully, there are several different ways you can get rid of your old smartphone and even make a little money in the process.
