Apple’s iPhone 5, released in 2012, brought some pretty major changes with it - iOS 6 was a big step up, for instance, and it was the first iPhone to connect to 4G internet. It also came sporting a humungous 4-inch display, the biggest iPhone screen yet. Plus, it had a brand new design, featuring cool brushed metal on the back in either a slate or silver colour - and it was the first smartphone to have a Lightning port.

Other features included an 8MP camera, 1GB of RAM, and dual-band Wi-Fi so you can connect to your home router a little more easily. Apple also finally did away with the piddling 8GB storage option - hardly enough to hold iOS itself these days - and the 32GB model was rather popular.

Can I sell a broken iPhone 5 32GB?

Don’t worry if your iPhone 5 32GB is broken or damaged - many phone recyclers will still buy it. A phone usually counts as broken if it has:

  • a cracked screen
  • broken buttons
  • power issues
  • lots of chips and dents
  • a corrupt operating system

A broken iPhone 5 32GB will sell for less than a working one, and even less than a brand new one - obviously - but nonetheless, they’ll sell. Just make sure you’re honest about your gadget's condition and you’ll get the most accurate quotes. If a recycler receives your device but decides it is not in the condition they expected, they’ll send you a revised quote by email, which you can choose to accept or reject. Some will charge postage if you want your gadget back, though others will do it for free.

Can I sell a iPhone 5 32GB with water damage?

Selling a water damaged phone is a little trickier, but some recyclers do buy handsets with water damage. Search for quotes on a broken iPhone 5 32GB above, and check with the recycler if you're not sure whether it will accept a water damaged phone or not.
