Samsung followed its flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone up with an accompanying littlun - the aptly-named Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. Intended as a mid-range device, it was there for the crowd who prefer a smaller, more traditionally-sized mobile. That meant a 4.3-inch display in this case, in a tiny frame that could easily slip in your pocket.

Of course, what was mid-range in 2013 is somewhere near the bottom of the tech pile by today’s standards. The S4 Mini came sporting a cheap-feeling plastic body - either in black, white, blue, pink, orange, or purple - along with some very 2013-era hardware. We’re talking an 8MP rear camera, 1.9MP selfie snapper, a dual-core processor, and 1.5GB RAM. Its 8GB of internal memory frustrates a lot of users too, especially as only 5GB of it is available to use, though at least there’s an SD card slot to take some of the weight.

Can I sell a broken Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini?

Don’t worry if your Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini 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 Mini 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.
