When is the best time to sell my Samsung Galaxy S21 FE?
A good rule of thumb: as soon as a company releases a newer handset, offers for older models from that company will fall in price. Therefore, it’s a good idea to sell your old Samsung Galaxy S21 FE before then.
Samsung tends to release its newest flagship phone at the start of every year, usually around January or February. As for its FE (“Fan Edition”) line, though, that’s a bit murkier. The Galaxy S21 FE is actually still the most recent model – that’s because Samsung seems to have cancelled its FE range for good.
Taking all that into consideration, there’s not really a bad time to sell your old and unused Samsung Galaxy S21 FE.
Samsung Galaxy S21 FE price history
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE was released in January 2022. At launch, it was priced at £699 for 128GB of storage, or £749 for the 256GB version.
It launched a year after the main Galaxy S21 flagship range.
Will my Samsung Galaxy S21 FE be recycled?
Yes, your old Galaxy S21 FE will be recycled. However, what happens largely depends on the condition of your device, as well as the current smartphone market.
If your phone is in good condition, or it’s one of the latest models, it’ll most likely be refurbished and sold on. Older devices and phones in less good condition may be dismantled, and their parts used to refurbish other phones.
Otherwise, if it can’t be refurbished or reused, it’ll be taken apart. Recyclable materials will be melted down and reused elsewhere, while other parts will be disposed of safely.
No matter what happens, you can rest assured that it’ll be dealt with in an environmentally friendly way.
Can I get paid for a broken Samsung Galaxy S21 FE?
Of course – most recyclers will buy phones that are broken or damaged. This could be anything like cracked screens, scratches and chips, broken buttons, faulty pixels on the display, or operating system problems.
Just select ‘Broken’ and be as honest as you can about your phone’s condition to get the most accurate quotes. You’ll get less money for it than for a phone in good condition – but you should still be able to get some cash for it.
However, if your phone is too badly damaged, recyclers are unlikely to accept it. This includes water-damaged phones, or phones that are beyond repair (for example, if it’s snapped in two). Each recycling company will have its own conditions on what counts as broken and what they’ll accept, so be sure to check.

Can I trade my old Samsung Galaxy S21 FE for a new one?
Yes, you can trade in your old Samsung Galaxy S21 FE for a new phone. You can do this in a couple of different ways.
First, you can go directly to Samsung’s website to trade in your old Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. Tell them about the condition of your device and they’ll give you an instant discount price – which you can use towards to bring down the cost of a new Samsung device.
However, if it’s completely broken, Samsung won’t pay any money for it – though they’re happy to take it off your hands and recycle it for you.
It’s worth bearing in mind that Samsung’s trade-in programme may not necessarily offer the best price on your old phone. By shopping around, you may be able to find betters deals for new handsets elsewhere.
To weigh up your trade-in options, see our comparison table above. We’ll show you the quotes currently offered by companies we work with, so you can compare all the available options and choose the best deal for you.
