The Galaxy Note 3 was built for luxury. Not only was it hee-uge - the HD screen was 5.7 inches in size - it also came with a handy stylus, aka the S Pen, so you could feel just a little bit more fancy when you use it. Flip the phone over, and you’ll find a lavish leather back, either in black, white, pink, or merlot.  

It kept up the luxury on the inside too, with tech that was pretty impressive in 2013: Android Jelly Bean, quad-core or octa-core processors, and 3GB of RAM. Combine that a 13MP camera and you had quite a formidable phablet on your hands.

Can I sell a broken Samsung Galaxy Note 3?

Don’t worry if your Samsung Galaxy Note 3 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 Samsung Galaxy Note 3 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.
