Nowadays, flashy mobile phones often cost an arm and a leg – and sometimes, even a little more. If you’re not convinced by commercial hype but are still after standard smartphone functionality, or are convinced but don’t have money to back it up, a budget phone is a great alternative. Possessing the latest android technology and features, and an impressive range of functionality, take a look below at some of the best budget phones on the market.
The Motorola G Series is one that has found favour with many smartphone users. Despite its extremely competitive price point, these phones, especially the Moto G6, provide users with a smooth Android experience without any significant compromise on quality.
With its sleek 1080p screen and ergonomic design, the device is a favourite among critics as well. It comes equipped with a 32GB storage, as well as the option of slotting in a microSD card for further expansion. Given its Snapdragon 450 processor and 3GB RAM, standard tasks can be performed with ease. The phone also comes with a 12 MP camera, which is a decent spec for a purported budget phone.
Despite its many positives, however, the Moto G6 is not without its faults. While the camera has a decent shooter, the app makes the photography experience a little slow and laggy. Apart from this, its lightweight feel and lack of notification light are some of the other drawbacks users have reported.
If you’re a budding photographer but don’t have the big bucks to fuel your iPhone fantasies, this phone is the one for you.
With a dual 13MP and 2MP camera on both the front and the rear, this camera will leave beginners enraptured with its capabilities from the word go. Its Full HD screen and premium glassy finish is one that has many wondering how this even falls under the budget phone category. Its £199 price tag, however, most certainly qualifies its inclusion on our list.
Some of the cons potential buyers can expect are a slightly underwhelming interface which compromises Android’s finer features, a secondary camera that doesn’t fully live up to expectation, and the lack of NFC – Near Fields Communication. This is a phone’s capability to establish peer-to-peer communications, passing data between devices by placing them close to each other.
Another impressive budget phone on our list, the Huawei P Smart is one with an exciting range of features. For those who prefer wide screens, the phone’s 5.6-inch screen is a dream come true. With the Kirin 659 CPU in place, it also makes for a handy tool if you have a range of functions to execute, on the double.
Equipped with a 12 MP camera, the device is perfect if you want to get some gorgeous shots of your scenery (or yourself) up on the ‘gram. Given that perfection somehow fails to exist, the Huawei P Smart lacks lightning charging and is slightly compromised with certain issues in the quality of its make. Nonetheless, it remains an exceptional choice for users looking for a phone that won’t break the bank.
Xiami is among the latest Chinese smartphone manufacturers to gradually infiltrate the market.
Despite drawbacks such as a lack of water or dust resistance, a lack of NFC capabilities, and a few other factors, the phone remains an impressive option in the long list of affordable Android devices.
Featuring the Snapdragon 625 CPU, 4 GB of RAM, and a 5.5-inch IPS screen, handling multiple tasks on your phone is not longer a migraine-inducing activity. With its 12 MP dual camera, users are also privy to some of the better imaging technology that can be expected from relatively affordable devices such as this. Further, it has been speculated the Mi A1 is also set to receive the highly anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo software update – all of which makes the phone a great choice for those on a budget.
If your finances are not up for purchasing a high-end device, opt for some of the products highlighted above for a budget-friendly smartphone experience!
