Launched in 2015, the HTC One M9 offered a few subtle upgrades on the previous HTC One (M8) phone. Although the two phones looked pretty much identical - sleek brushed aluminium case, BoomSound speakers above and below the screen, five-inch display - the M9 had a little more going on under the hood.

It’s housing a 2,840mAh battery with QuickCharge, octa-core Snapdragon 810 processors, an improved 3GB of RAM, and a microSD slot that let you expand the 32GB of internal memory to up to 128GB. Looks-wise, this one came in either gunmetal grey, amber gold, silver/rose gold, gold/pink, or plain pink. While the specs looked great on paper, the M9 did get a few complaints about battery life and screen quality even at its launch - a pixel density of 441ppi isn’t that great, after all.

Can I sell a broken HTC One M9?

Don’t worry if your HTC One M9 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 M9 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 M9 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 M9 above, and check with the recycler if you're not sure whether it will accept a water damaged phone or not.
