Launched in September 2014 - just a few months after its predecessor - the Sony Xperia Z3 is a little difficult to tell apart from all the other phones in the Xperia Z series. With a 5.2-inch screen, whopping 20.7MP rear camera lens, and shiny metallic back, it certainly fits in with the rest of the range. A couple of things that tell it apart, however, are the 32GB of internal storage and the fact that it doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor.

Can I sell a broken Sony Xperia Z3?

Don’t worry if your Sony Xperia Z3 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 Sony Xperia Z3 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.

Selling a water damaged phone is a little trickier, but some recyclers do buy handsets with water damage. Search for quotes on a broken Sony Xperia Z3 above, and check with the recycler if you're not sure whether it will accept a water damaged phone or not.
