Selling your phone or other used devices online is a great way to get some extra cash without dealing with the hassle of finding buyers. Over the past few years, many buyback programs have launched, allowing customers to get instant offers for their used devices.

Buyback Review

Buyback Review was founded to evaluate buyback companies and hold them accountable for their business practices. Sending your phone into a random internet company requires a high level of trust. You want to make sure these companies actually honor the offers they provide you with.

At Buyback Review, we do an in-depth review of different buyback companies so our visitors can get the absolute best prices for their used devices. Here are a few of the things we consider with every review.


Let’s face it, when selling a device, the thing you care most about is price. You want to sell your device to the company who offers the best prices. We evaluate companies pricing in a variety of categories because there isn’t a single company that offers the best prices for all devices. Certain companies provide better prices for broken phones while others provide better prices for new phones. Similarly, some companies offer great prices on Samsung phones and mediocre prices on iPhones.

We dive deep into the different pricing to ensure you get the best price for whatever device you’re trying to sell.


Price is important, but you also want to make sure you actually get paid! You need to know you can trust a company before sending your device to complete strangers. We evaluate the credibility of every company using a variety of factors, including:

  • How long they’ve been in business
  • Customer experience (as expressed through online reviews)
  • Personal experience (during our evaluation process)

Honesty and Integrity

We expect every company we review to act with integrity and treat their customers properly. In most cases, this simply means paying the customer the amount of money they are quoted. Unfortunately, some companies have been found to offer high payouts only to lower the offer once they actually receive the phone. While this is sometimes the result of an inaccurate description from the customer, certain companies are infamous for taking an unethical approach to this. We do deep research to ensure the companies we vouch for actually deliver what they promise.

Customer Service

Last but not least, we evaluate the quality of a buyback company’s customer service. If you have problems with your order or questions about the selling process, you want to make sure you have access to a friendly, responsive team that is ready to help.
