In this paper, we undertook theoretical explorations that revealed a number of issues being fundamental for incomplete quality rating of mobile phones when drawing up an expert evidence of the product examination. To begin with, it means a lack of unified list of factors for carrying out a quality and safety rating of mobile phones. We analyzed laws and regulations that control forensic expert examination of the product performing in Ukraine. It must be emphasized that commissioning of expert studies and its performing is significant during making an investigation of mobile phones thefts. Also, we reviewed special aspects of fair market valuation of mobile phones when performing forensic expert examination of the product in practice. Apple, being the most popular mobile phone brand on Ukrainian market, was chosen as a sample for consideration. We selected information of Mixpanel Data Analytics Company, concerning published research results. Mixpanel Data Analytics Company conducted a research and found out which iPhone mobile phones made by Apple are popular now among users. In this paper, we undertook a statistical investigation of the primary and secondary consumers market of Ukraine in accordance with the chosen sample of the Apple mobile phone brand. It has been clearly demonstrated that the importance of providing information concerning the object of research by investigative authorities to forensic experts is an integral part of performing the forensic expert examination of the product. We have analyzed the price-forming factors of devices and it was found that the surface integrity and mobile phone model in reference to the secondary consumer market of Ukraine is important for price-forming as well as specific technical specifications. It has been determined the correction factor for each mobile phone model. We propose to use this correction factor when performing the forensic expert examination and drawing up an expert evidence for the relevant expert institutions.
