To sell your Galaxy Note 8, all you have to do is use the comparison tool on our website to decide which recycler you want to send your device to.

The recycler will give you a package so that you can give your phone to them. You could also send your device to the recycling company which will speed up the process of getting paid.

Samsung do not publish environmental reports about their production of greenhouse gases, which is concerning. We know however that the production of phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 causes CO2 to be emitted into the atmosphere, so we would ideally like to know what the figures are. Unfortunately, this is not the case, seeing as there is no information available from Samsung regarding this. What we can recommend however is that you endeavour to try to keep your device in circulation for as long as possible. This is to avoid your device ending up in landfill. When you put your phone on the market, it will get a makeover so that it is ready to be sold as a usuable second-hand phone. Despite any cosmetic damage that your phone might have, it can still be sold for a good price.
It is usually recommended to sell your phone sooner rather than later because the value of smartphones tends to depreciate as time goes on. However, there are certain periods in the year which are better times to sell your phone than others. These include during the build-up to Christmas and when the latest Samsung model comes out.
Even if your device is broken, there are various ways that you can get it back on the market. If your phone just has cosmetic damage, then this should be remediable. However, if your device has a more serious problem like water damage, make sure you check out your recycler’s Terms and Conditions to see how they deal with this.
Regardless of whether your phone is damaged or not, you should still be able to resell it. For instance, if your device only has some light wear and tear, then this ought to be simple to fix. On the other hand, if your phone has worse damage like water damage for instance, you will need to ensure that you have a look at your recycler’s T&Cs to found out what their policies are regarding this.
