Broken OnePlus Phone: Repair or Sell?

How much does OnePlus phone repair cost? Should you sell it or fix it? We’ll help you decide!

Have a broken OnePlus phone? Trying to decide whether to fix it before you sell it? Here’s an easy way to decide: compare its broken value to its net value after repair.

Value Broken VS Net Value Repaired (OnePlus phone in “good” condition – cost of repair)

In general, you’ll make more money if you repair recent models like the OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 – unless you need an expensive repair like professional screen replacement. In that case, you’re better off selling your phone in broken condition.

For example, a OnePlus 6T is worth around $230 in good condition. However, it costs around $230 to have a pro shop replace a broken screen, so you’d break even if you paid for repair. The phone is worth $42 broken, however, so you’d make $42 more if you sold it as-is.

For less expensive repairs, it usually makes sense to fix recent models before you sell (whether you do it yourself for pay a pro shop). However, you’ll typically get more money for older models if you sell them broken, unless you only need an inexpensive DIY repair like a charging port.



The best way to know for sure is to compare repair costs and OnePlus values. Use our step-by-step guide to make the right decision and get the most money for your broken OnePlus phone.

Online phone repair: How it works and what it costs

STEP 1: Identify OnePlus phone repair costs

How much does OnePlus repair cost? It depends on which repair you need and whether you’ll fix it yourself or take it to a pro repair shop. You can save money with DIY repair, but you also risk additional damage and voiding warranties and insurance policies.

NOTE: If your OnePlus phone is still under warranty, see if it will cover the repair. If you have phone insurance, see if the deductible is cheaper than repair costs.



The following table compares repair costs for two common OnePlus phone repairs (cracked screens and broken charging ports) so you know what to expect.

STEP 2: Calculate the net value of your OnePlus phone after repair

Once you know repair costs, you can calculate the net value after repair:

OnePlus Phone Value – Cost of Repair = NET VALUE

Use Flipsy to see how much your OnePlus phone is worth in good condition. Here are some example values:

MODELVALUE
OnePlus 6T (128GB)$230
OnePlus 6 (64GB)$190
OnePlus 5T (64GB)$130
OnePlus 5 (64GB)$100
OnePlus 3T (64GB)$71
OnePlus 3$57
OnePlus X$25
OnePlus 2$43
OnePlus One$20

Next, calculate the net value based on your selected repair method. This is how much you would get if you repair your OnePlus phone before you sell it.

As you can see, if you need an expensive repair like screen replacement you’ll get more value if you sell your OnePlus phone broken rather than pay for professional repair. In some cases, you’ll lose money if you pay for repair.

For newer models, you’ll get more value if you pay for less expensive repairs or complete repairs yourself. On older models, you’ll generally get more if you sell your phone broken – unless it’s a very inexpensive DIY repair, such as a charging port.

You should also consider your time investment. In some cases, you’ll get a few dollars more if you repair your phone before you sell it, but the extra money might not be worth your time.

A final consideration: if you plan to keep your OnePlus phone for another year or two, it might be worth paying for repair since it’s likely cheaper than buying a new phone. Just understand your phone will continue to lose value over time. That said, if you’re ready to upgrade or you want to get the most money for your OnePlus phone, now is the best time to sell.
