Before the days when Samsung’s flagship phones had curvy screens and sleek aluminium bodies, it was devices like the Galaxy S4 that ruled the roost. We’re talking tacky plastic body (in either black, white, or blue), 5-inch HD screen, 2GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of memory to store all your apps and pictures.

Some of its specs still stand up to today’s standards, despite the S4’s 2013 release - it had an octa-core chipset and a 13MP camera, for a start - but in other ways, it’s a bit past it. You won’t get an upgrade beyond Android 5.0 Lollipop any time soon, for instance… nor can you connect to 4G.

If you’re upgrading from your Samsung Galaxy S4, why not sell it to a recycler and grab a bit of cash for it? Use’s comparison tool to browse through all the offers from dozens of recycling companies on our site, and take a look at the thousands of independent customer reviews to help you pick one you like. Then just enter your details, mail your phone off to the recycler using the postage pack they send, and that’s it - you’ll get sent your money ASAP.

Can I sell a broken Samsung Galaxy S4?

Don’t worry if your Samsung Galaxy S4 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 S4 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 Samsung Galaxy S4 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 Samsung Galaxy S4 above, and check with the recycler if you're not sure whether it will accept a water damaged phone or not.
