At The Big Phone Store, we're never beaten on price and guarantee that any cash value is transferred to your chosen bank account after just a few days.
We accept any condition, any network and any storage option when comes to your Samsung Galaxy S8. We also passionately believe in the environment and promise to recycle all unusable parts or devices in the safest, most sustainable ways possible.
Why sell your Samsung Galaxy S8?
Because your Samsung Galaxy S8 continues to hold its value. So use any money you make to buy yourself a new phone or even better handset, like the superb Samsung Galaxy S20 or the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
And that's not all! We think there's a couple of other great reasons to sell your handset to us:
Less phone-clutter. On average, we upgrade a mobile phone every 18-24 months. So selling your unused device makes you phone-clutter free!
The environment. Unfortunately, many mobile phones end up in landfill every year - a lot of which could easily be repaired, reused or properly recycled. At The Big Phone Store, we take environmental sustainability seriously and promise that any parts or devices beyond repair are recycled in accordance with the WEEE Directive, the Environmental Protection Act (1990) and Hazardous Waste Regulation (2005).
Where can I sell my Samsung Galaxy S8?
Because of the popularity of your Samsung Galaxy S8, you won't be short of offers from buy back stores that want to give you cash or store credit for your device. But when it comes to unbeatable Samsung Galaxy S8 trade-in, look no further than The Big Phone Store!
How much can I sell my Samsung Galaxy S8 for?
At The Big Phone Store, we only use three things to determine the value of any Samsung Galaxy S8 handset - 'network', 'storage' and 'condition'.
Firstly, let's talk about 'network'. When selling a mobile phone, you're often required to state whether it's 'locked' or 'unlocked'. This basically refers to whether your device is 'locked' to a network provider (EE, BT, Sky Mobile, Virgin Mobile, etc.), or free to connect to any network you choose. We recommend that you get your Samsung Galaxy S8 'unlocked', as this tends to make valuations higher. It's pretty straightforward to do - just contact your network provider who provides all the information you need. Samsung are not able to 'unlock' Galaxy devices - only network providers do this.
Then there's 'storage'. The Samsung Galaxy S8 only offers 64GB of internal storage, so valuation is stable in this area.
Last up, we have 'condition'. Buy back sites regularly over-complicate how 'condition' affects valuation. At The Big Phone Store, we've made it really clear and have split our 'condition' criteria into four categories: New, Good, Poor and Broken. There are full summaries below and you can find additional information on 'condition' criteria in our Terms and Conditions.
But to give you a better idea of what we look for when determining the 'condition' of your Samsung Galaxy S8, see below:
New. In the original, sealed box. Must not be refurbished or reconditioned. Must be the factory original.
Good. Full working order. Only light wear and tear. No damage, scratches, defects, chips, dents, marks or imperfections. LCD screen must have no signs of discolouration, screen burn, missing pixels or any other imperfections. Must have Good Battery Health.
Poor. Full working order. Average wear and tear acceptable. LCD screen must have no signs of discolouration, screen burn, missing pixels or any other imperfections. Must have Satisfactory Battery Health and not require a service.
Broken. Has faults or is damaged. Must not be bent, crushed or in pieces. Must have no internal missing parts.
Can I sell my broken Samsung S8 to The Big Phone Store?
Absolutely! We accept all Samsung Galaxy S8 handsets, even if not all handsets hold monetary value. We recommend that you read our full criteria for 'broken' first. If your device meets these conditions (and most do), we guarantee to give you a fair price for it. Simple as that!
And even if your Samsung Galaxy S8 is broken or damaged beyond repair, you can still recycle it with us for free. At The Big Phone Store, we promise to dispose of every unusable part or device in the safest, most sustainable way possible.
How do I wipe the data from my Samsung Galaxy S8 before selling it?
Before sending us your Samsung Galaxy S8, you'll need to complete what's called a Factory Reset. You'll find any number of tutorials online to help with this, but we've come up with a quick guide to wiping your handset:
Make sure you 'power off' your device
Press and hold the 'volume up' and 'home' buttons at the same time
While holding 'volume up' and 'home' buttons, press and hold the 'power' button. The words 'Recovery Booting' should appear in the upper-left corner of your screen. Once this happens, release all the buttons
Select 'Wipe data/factory reset'.
It then warns you that you're about to loose all your data. Select 'Yes' (Note: this action cannot be undone). The process of wiping your Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge should take no more than a few seconds
Select 'Reboot system now'. And after a few more seconds, you're done!
