Samsung has a lovely habit of releasing smaller, more mid-range versions of its major flagship phones - which is perfect for those of us who prefer a handset that’s easier to hold. The Galaxy S5 Mini was such a phone, rocking a nicely sized 4.5-inch screen that still had a HD resolution 

It meant a few downgrades from the regular Galaxy S5 - the cameras weren’t quite as good, and it only had 16GB of memory - but as mid-range smartphones go, it impressed. For instance, it still came with features like a fingerprint sensor, NFC, and Samsung’s usual heart rate monitor.  

Nonetheless, smartphone tech has improved a lot since 2014, and that Galaxy S5 Mini may need an upgrade. It wasn’t even top-of-the-range back then, after all. Ready to sell yours and make a little cash to put towards your next phone?

Can I sell a broken Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini?

Don’t worry if your Samsung Galaxy S5 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 S5 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.
