Released in 2014, the HTC One M8 was one of the best smartphones around at its launch. Although it looks almost identical to the previous HTC One, the M8 came with some important upgrades: a slightly bigger screen, better processing power, and dual camera lenses on the back.

Besides that, you’ll recognise it by its sleek design. The One M8 has a smooth, lightly curved metal unibody form, with iPhone-esque lines running around the top and bottom for the aerial. On the front, the screen is crisp and clear with a 1080p resolution, and it’s got two long speaker grilles above and below the screen. Together, they mean you can hear audio in perfect stereo when you turn the phone landscape.

Advanced though it may have been in 2014, these days the M8 isn’t always up to par - most modern flagship smartphones have processors larger than quad-core, for a start.

Can I sell a broken HTC One M8?

Don’t worry if your HTC One M8 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 HTC One M8 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 HTC One M8 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 HTC One M8 above, and check with the recycler if you're not sure whether it will accept a water damaged phone or not.
