Generally, an iPhone is said to be in a broken condition if it has a broken screen, excessive dents or scratches over the phone, or broken microphone & buttons, faulty or broken camera, missing or broken battery, corrupted iOS, etc. 

Some of the online retailers, recycling companies or stores might not trade-in your iPhone if it’s reported stolen, fake, twisted in two, etc.

Needless to say, you’ll get the best value for your phone if it’s in the best condition possible. Keep it in a case to prevent bumps or scratches.
