The iPhone 5 brought some pretty big changes to Apple’s smartphone range. For a start, it was the first iPhone that could connect to 4G rather than only 3G, and was also the first to feature a Lightning port rather than an old 30-pin one. Its screen was a whole half-inch bigger than the previous iPhone 4s, and it updated its processors (hello, 1.3GHz Apple A6 chip), doubled its RAM to 1GB, and offered some bigger memory options - up to 64GB like this model, in fact.

Of course, iPhone users always like to stay ahead of the technological curve, and the iPhone 5 is well behind it these days. Considering modern iPhones have better cameras, larger and more high-res screens, and the option of a heck of a lot more storage, it’s definitely time to sell your iPhone 5 64GB and grab something new.

Can I sell a broken iPhone 5 64GB?

Don’t worry if your iPhone 5 64GB 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 64GB 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.
