While you’re not actually buying something, you’re still getting a pretty good deal. Normally trade-in values tend to be on the lower side but EMax promises to give double back for an exchange. So, for those looking to get rid of an old iPhoneX, the highest return rate given back is Dh5,000 which could be used to purchase a new, shiny model.
