Higher Resale Value and Easier to Sell
My boy is asking and I honestly don't know, I want to say Apple but Samsung stepped up and the Galaxy series is very strong.

Supply and demand are definitely at play here. But I would suggest it is the opposite of your assertion. Androids tend to drop in price at retail so quickly, there is no point to having a grey market. Why bother buying used when the hottest phone on the market will be $100 cheaper next week brand new?

Not quite a supply vs demand issue. It is the apple policy on selling retread devices at tiny discounts when the new replacement device comes out. When the iPhone 7 is the hot ticket item, the iPhone 5 is still available for retail sale.

Could be that even the iphone 3gs which was released in 2009 still get timely os updates compared to fragmented androids.

If I want an iPhone, I only have one source.
If I want an Android, I can choose between two current Samsung models (S3 and Note II). Not to mention all the other vendors that are competiting with Samsung.
It becomes really evident why Apple hold their value.
