Released as a budget companion to the main flagship in 2016, the iPhone SE looked like an iPhone 5 but ran more like an iPhone 6s. Though it had the basic design of the 5, 5s, and 5c - chunky build, four-inch screen, square edges - the SE’s specs and hardware had some major upgrades.

It was among the first set of iPhones to have Apple Pay enabled, for instance, and it was powered by the Apple A9 chip - the latest processor at the time. The rear camera, too, was more on par with the 6s range, with a 12MP lens and phase detection autofocus. Looks-wise, though, it was dinky - it just had a four-inch screen, remember - and came in either space grey, silver, gold, or rose gold.

Can I sell a broken iPhone SE 16GB?

Don’t worry if your iPhone SE 16GB 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 SE 16GB 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 an iPhone SE 16GB 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 SE 16GB above, and check with the recycler if you're not sure whether it will accept a water damaged phone or not.
