However, at Tradein.co.uk, we offer cash for trading in a range of old tech that includes far much than just mobile phones.

Let’s have a look at the surprising amount of devices you can trade-in.

We also offer great trade-in value for a range of Samsung tech. As well as accepting the full range of Samsung Galaxy S Series smartphones, we also pay out for Samsung tablets like the Samsung Tab 3 and even wearable Samsung tech, like the Samsung Gear Fit 2 and the Samsung Gear S3 Classic.

Did You Know that You Can Liberate Cash from All Kinds of Unwanted Tech?

Whilst most people are aware of the numerous smartphone trade-in services available these days, there is still a lack of awareness of the fact that trade-in services extend much further than just smartphones. Believe it or not, you can get money for your old games consoles, your old iPods and iPads and even your old Go Pro Camera.

If you’re someone who loves their tech, the chances are that you’ve got a fair amount of surplus devices in your possession and rather than letting them slowly become obsolete and worthless, you can actually liquidize the value inside to spend on something else.

How Easy is it To Do?

Well, believe it or not, it’s pretty simple, as all you have to do is go to our website www.tradein.co.uk and enter your device’s model number into the search bar provided e.g. ‘Playstation 4’ or ‘Apple iPhone 6’. This will typically bring up the value you will receive by trading it in, along with some examples of the variations in price that are dictated by its physical condition e.g. ‘Good’, ‘Pristine’ or ‘Fair’.

From there, it’s a simple case of going through the quick and easy ‘selling’ process on our website and sending your device to us so that we can verify its condition. Once we have your trade-in tech in our possession, it’s then just a matter of confirming receipt, verifying the condition and paying you your money via fast bank transfer. You’ll usually have your funds that very day, so no waiting around!

The service we provide has so far been enjoyed by more than a million customers since we began and we’re well on the way to our next million. The reasons behind our popularity are the simplicity of our trade-in process, the fair prices we pay for your trade-in tech and the fact that we take customer satisfaction very seriously.

You’re under no obligation to sell your mobile, so if you change your mind at any point up until the sale is completed or if we find that your device is a worse condition than stated when you sold it and the price we’re offering has dropped, you don’t have to take the deal. We’ll just send you your trade-in console, trade-in smartphone or trade-in iPad back to you free of charge, no questions asked.

However, that’s the only reason why you’d get less than stated on our website, as under the terms of our Price Promise, we guarantee to pay you that amount if you’ve described your device accurately. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that our smart device trade-in service is easy to follow and fast to pay out.

Come and See How Much Your Old Tech is Worth

To Trade in or To Sell? – That Is The Question

Smartphones are getting more and more sophisticated every day and as a result, people in the United Kingdom are changing their old iPhones and Samsung Galaxy tech ever 2 to 4 years. Most often this occurs at the end of a monthly phone contract, when the iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 that came with it, becomes yours.

Whether getting a new iPhone X on a new contract or an upgrade, the question naturally arises – what to do with your old smartphone? Trade in or sell it privately? Here we take a look at why trading in your old iPhone is often the best way forwards.

No Guarantees

Selling your old smartphone on an online marketplace website like Ebay can be a tempting proposition, but there’s a lot of competition to get a good price and you could end up getting much less than market value – even if you’re talking about a relatively new Samsung or Apple Smartphone.

There’s also no guarantee that you’ll get a bid for your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy if you do set a reserve price, and if you set it low and someone meets it – you’ll be obliged to sell it at that low price. There’s no getting around the fact that Ebay is an auction site and selling your smartphone at an auction is risky!

Time Consuming

When you trade in a smartphone with a company like ours, it’s a pretty instant thing. You send it, we verify it and you get paid. It’s that simple. Listing on an auction site means having to fill everything out, take pictures and wait the allotted time for the auction to end. This is averagely about a week, which means waiting even longer to get your money.


You get a set amount when you trade in a Samsung Galaxy or Apple iPhone with us, with no nasty surprises further down the line thanks to our price promise. The amount you get when your old smartphone sells for on sites like Ebay is not the same amount you’ll have paid into your bank. They take a full 10%, which is a hefty sum when you’re talking about a selling price of hundreds of pounds.


Selling privately means that you’ll be resetting your iPhone 8 or Samsung Galaxy S6 yourself and it’s fairly common knowledge that smartphones that have been through a factory reset can still be hacked with the right equipment and the will to do so. Trading in a smartphone is a secure way to ensure that it’s wiped properly with our specially designed flashing software, so it won’t come back to bite you in the future.

Trade In is King! So, when it comes down to it, trading in your old smartphone is the best, safest and quickest way to getting at the cash inside. It’s simple, it’s easy and we even pay the postage for you. What’s not to like? If you’d like find out more about trading your old iPhone or Samsung Galaxy with us, visit us online at www.tradein.co.uk or call us now on 020 3581 1991 between 9 and 5, Monday to Friday.

Samsung could be teaming up with LG for the Galaxy Note 8

Electronics manufacturing giant Samsung could be set to team up with one of its rivals – LG – for support with the production of the future tentpole release of the Galaxy Note 8.

LG Chem, a battery business arm of LG Group, has been tapped to build batteries for future products from Samsung, starting with the Note 8, The Investor reports.

Since the global product recall of the Galaxy Note 7 in October, which was prone to fire because of a battery fault, Samsung has been discussing supply deals with a host of battery makers.

A partnership with LG would see the firm join the South Korean smartphone company’s existing partners Samsung SDI and China’s ATL.

It usually takes more than six months to design, test and produce batteries for a new smartphone, which is why sources predict the LG Chem products will first appear in the successor to the Note 7, which is tentatively dubbed the Note 8.

“The talks have not yet been completed but it seems highly likely for the two firms to sign a deal,” an anonymous industry source told The Insider.

Samsung has rarely used parts from LG, a rival firm that hails from the same part of South Korea.

However, the unexpected discontinuation of the Note 7 has prompted Samsung to investigate the possibility of diversifying its supplier base, including new battery makers.

LG Display has also reportedly been tapped by Samsung to produce liquid-crystal displays for television sets. This comes after Samsung’s key supplier Sharp recently notified it would stop supplying the panels from next year.
