Released in 2015, the Z5 was Sony Xperia’s most flagshippy flagship yet, rocking some seriously high-powered specs for the time. It was a big’un, with a 5.2-inch screen, but with a 1080p HD resolution it was well worth it to get such a clear picture. Add on octa-core processors that kept everything running at top speed, and you had something decent on your hands.

Like the rest of the range, it looked good too. Although it’s pretty much indistinguishable from most of the other Xperia phones, with a frosted glass back and an angular feel, it did come in some nice colours: bright white, graphite black, fancy gold, turquoise green, or a soft lilac pink.

Can I sell a broken Sony Xperia Z5?

Don’t worry if your Sony Xperia Z5 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 Z5 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 Z5 above, and check with the recycler if you're not sure whether it will accept a water damaged phone or not.
