When is the best time to sell my Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus?
If you’re thinking of selling your Galaxy S21 Plus, it’s worth doing so before Samsung releases its latest flagship range.
This is because offers for older models drop as soon as a newer phone goes on the market. As Samsung usually releases its latest Galaxy S series at the start of every year (typically in January or February), it’s a good idea to sell your old Galaxy S21 Plus before then.
That said, if you have an old and unused handset lying around, there’s never really a bad time to sell it.
Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus price history
The Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus was released in January 2021. At launch, it was priced at £949 for 128GB of storage, or £749 for the 256GB version.
Will my Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus be recycled?
Yes – but what happens 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 – and it won’t end up in a landfill.
Can I get paid for a broken Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus?
Of course – most recyclers are happy to accept phones that are broken or damaged. This includes cosmetic damage (such as cracked screens, scratches, dents 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. Although you’ll get less money for it than for a phone in good condition, you should still be able to get some cash for it.
However, if your phone is beyond repair, recyclers are unlikely to accept it. This includes water-damaged phones, or phones that are significantly damaged (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.
