Released in 2017, the Samsung Galaxy S8 was one of the first mainstream phones with an edge-to-edge infinity display, and despite the phone costing a small fortune to repair, the phone still holds up today as a consistently high performing device. In fact, it still stacks up against today's current mid-range and budget phones in terms of power, while outperforming them with the camera.
It only takes three steps to get money for your old Samsung Galaxy S8. Simply select the relevant condition and network of your device and choose an offer from our list of recyclers. Fill in your details and the recycler will give you a freepost pack to send your device in. If you want to speed up the process, you can print off your own label and send the device yourself.
Once the recycling company has checked your device, they will assess its condition and make sure it meets their expectations from the condition that was selected. They will then either get back to you with a new quote or stay with the original offer. You can choose to receive payment via bank transfer, cheque or PayPal.
Timing the sale of your device is important if you are keen on maximising the money that you can receive for it to put towards a new phone. Every phone is likely to depreciate a considerable amount over the course of their lifetimes. With new phones and upgraded tech getting released every year, older phones lose some of their value. This occurs in a predictable pattern every year, namely as every time a new phone gets released, the older models decrease in value.
When a phone is created, there is a considerable amount of resources that are used in the process. Because of this, the phone's environmental cost is heavily weighted on the production of the device with 80% of its entire lifetime emissions happening during the mining and production processes as opposed to usage. It is therefore essential to keep these resources in circulation if possible to reduce the demand on further mining.
Even if your phone does not function correctly, there are recyclers keen to build their Galaxy S8 trade supply by fixing and reconditioning broken phones. If your device has any deep scratches or a cracked screen, it will be classified as broken.
