If you have multiple devices that you wish to sell, you will need to find the storage capacity of your devices (GB). GB is short for gigabyte, which is a unit of data storage capacity that approximately equates to one billion bytes. This number will tell you how much storage your device has. It is important to know your device’s storage capacity as this is one of the factors that will determine, in part, how much money you will get for it. The higher the GB, the higher the value of the device.The way that you can check the storage of your device will depend on whether you have an iPhone or an Android device.
Open the Settings menu and scroll down to tap on General. At the top select About and scroll a bit down looking for Capacity.
The way that you can find its storage capacity will depend on the manufacturer and there is also a variance between models. Typically, storage capacity information is stored in Settings > Storage, however if you have a Samsung phone, you can find the total storage capacity information under Settings > Device Care.
The capacity may show as a slightly lower number than the original number (for instance 62.5GB for a 64GB phone), but this is because the software can take up a significant amount of space.
If you are unable to turn the device and access the Settings menu, you can look at the device’s original box where it will have the storage information written on it. In case you do not have the device’s original box, then you can use an IMEI checker tool online which will provide you with your device’s storage specification.
The IMEI number of your phone can be found either on the back of the device for most Android phones and iPhones older than the iPhone 6. For newer iPhones, it will be printed inside the SIM tray when you eject the SIM card.

With the release of the new Pixel environmental report, we analyse Google's device specific environmental documentation to find out what steps they are taking to make their devices more sustainable and what they predict the total greenhouse gas emissions will be over the lifetime of the device.
