  3. Sign out of Samsung Cloud on your device - Find out how 
  4. Factory reset your Samsung device to ensure all of the data is cleared - Don't worry if you forget to do this as we'll also wipe all data when the item arrives with us
  5. Remove any SIM cards and memory cards from the device - If we receive any of these we will dispose of them
  6. Clean the device so it's ready for us to test and this doesn't impact our grading process

Do you buy broken Samsung devices?

With the advancement of smartphones, especially Samsungs, designs have become stylish and devices now have all-glass exterior. This can easily lead to scratches, chips, cracks and other damage to the phone that can affect the value of the mobile. Although these phones can show heavy wear and tear, there's still value in these devices and we're happy to offer you a competitive price to recycle your old Samsung phone.

Due to the damage we might not be able to offer you as much money as a pristine looking phone, but you can still sell to us as a working device under our 'Poor' or 'Faulty' condition. When selling, simply read our condition criteria and choose the option that best suits your Samsung.

If you're not sure about the condition then choose the closest match and we'll provide you with further details once we've received and tested your phone.

How much is my Samsung Galaxy worth?

If you've got an old Samsung phone to sell then we could be the choice for you! We offer a 30 second no obligation quote and it's so easy to sell. Simply find your Samsung Phone from our category page, or search for your phone. Provide us with a few details about the Samsung mobile and its condition. Choose your payment method and complete your sale...It's that easy!

The price we offer for your Samsung phone is based on the type and condition of the device and unlike other recyclers, we won't chip you down for silly reasons. If your model meets the condition description then you'll be paid the full amount.

To ensure you get the best possible price, follow these steps:

When will I be paid for my Samsung mobile?

After selling your Samsung phone to Tech Octopus we'll send you instructions on how to prepare your phone, how to package your mobile safely, how to send it back to us, and what will happen once it's been returned. All Samsungs we receive will go through our diagnostic software and testing process. This is where we'll check the functionality of the phone and determine its condition. If no issues are found and the device is exactly as you've traded then we'll pay directly into your bank or PayPal account.

If you've chosen a bank transfer then you'll receive your cash within 24 hours. If you've chosen PayPal as your payment option, we'll transfer the money to the email address associated with your PayPal account.

If your device is tested and the technicians find any issues, we'll contact you to let you know. You can decide if you wish to proceed with the trade at that point, or whether you'd like to have the Samsung sent back.

What checks do you perform on my Samsung?

When we receive your Samsung mobile phone our technicians will perform a diagnostic and conditional check. We believe that these tests should be fair and transparent, that's why we use PhoneCheck...An independent diagnostic and data wipe software company who are industry leaders in device testing. The software will only flag any issues that impact the usability of the phone. If you're unsure about any faults or issues we find, we can provide a full diagnostic report that outlines the tests undertaken and what (If any) issues/defects are found.
