Comparing prices for your mobile phone has potentially gained you an extra £172 cash and by recycling your Samsung Galaxy S9 you're also doing your bit for the environment!
To the right we list our Top Recommended Deal and below that we show all the mobile phone recyclers who will pay you to recycle your old Samsung mobile phone.
The Galaxy S9 was released in 2018 alongside the bigger Plus model and was available in three capacities: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. To sell your device, simply select the capacity and network or whether your device is unlocked and pick the offer from the recycler of your choice. Then, submit your details to start the process.
You can select whether you would like the recycler to send you a pack, otherwise you can print off a freepost label yourself to send your phone in, which takes a day or two off the total time that it takes for you to receive money for your Galaxy S9. Once your chosen recycler receives the device, they will check your phone to assess its condition. Then, you will hear back from them with a new offer or with the original quoted amount.
The Samsung brand does not hold its value as well as an iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S9 is no different. The price during its launch began at £740, but quickly fell in value as the sales started to flood in. The sharpest drops in resale value come as a new model is being released, or just after Christmas. Therefore, if you plan to sell your S9, try to plan around these dates and have a look at our Samsung price history to get a clearer idea.
The process for recycling your Galaxy S9 depends on the company that you have chosen to recycle with. Generally, when a recycler receives a device, they will check the functionality of it and ascertain if it is in good condition or not. Then, they will wipe the device and sell it domestically. If there is too much damage to sell it straight away, the recycler will make the repairs and replace the parts to be sold on.
If your device is past the point of repair, then the only option would be to responsibly recycle the device for spare parts, components or for the rare or valuable materials inside. This is a process that some companies specialise in due to this ongoing cycle of demand.
