10 best cheap smartphones


Let’s explore smartphones that are both good and cheap

If you want to own an Apple and Samsung flagship but they are too expensive, then I will introduce you to flagships that not only have modern features but are also cheap from $ 160 to $ 300.

As we know, most of the flagships are very expensive because they require technology and outstanding features, so it is difficult to reduce the cost. However, many manufacturers also produce affordable flagships in the Korean and Chinese markets.

Samsung, Google, and Apple are also developing more mid-range phones and they also care about modern features for them. For example, Samsung has a smartphone model for only $200 but it is equipped with 5G.

We may be concerned about the camera quality of mid-priced phones, but its quality is still very well taken care of. The manufacturer knows how to make quality cameras to give you the best photos to show off to your friends.

  1. Google Pixel 5A

Last year, Google launched two smartphones, Pixel 4A and Pixel 4A 5G. In the world of 5G phones, perhaps the Pixel 5G has the most suitable price of 499 USD. However, the launch of Pixel 5A this year will take the place of Pixel 4A 5G because it is a newer and more affordable model. The price of the Pixel 5A is only 459 USD, 50 USD cheaper than the old generation – Pixel 4A 5G.

Google’s Pixel 5A has a 3.5mm audio port along with stereo speakers, it is equipped with water and dust resistance, and Google also gives it three years of OS and security updates. It has a super-sharp camera, an indispensable feature for those who are passionate about photography. Its other advantages are a 6.34-inch screen (2400 x 1080 pixels resolution), using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chip, 6GB RAM and 128GB internal memory, and 4620mAh battery capacity.

However, this phone has only one camera on the back, the color is black, and does not support mmWave 5G.

  1. Google Pixel 4A

The second smartphone I would recommend to you is the Pixel 4A, which is the previous generation of the Pixel 5A above and its price is $349. This phone has Google’s quality camera algorithms, which are backed by Google’s top-notch camera, timely and guaranteed software updates for many years, 5.81-inch screen, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal memory, Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor, 3140mAh battery. 

The downside to the Pixel 4A is that it also comes in a single black color, a single rear camera, and older specs.

  1. TCL 20SE

The TCL SE 20SE is for those who care about the display experience and the basics. That’s why its camera is not as good as other flagships. It is also not 5G-equipped and only gets quarterly security patch updates for a period of 18 to 24 months. 

Users will have a good display experience with the TCL 20SE because the 6.82-inch screen with a thickness of 9.14 mm is very suitable for watching movies. The design of this phone is also quite nice and importantly, its price is only $189.99.

TCL 20SE has a big size so it’s hard to carry around, there’s no NFC, and the camera isn’t good.

  1. TCL 20S

This phone has an improvement added by Verizon. TCL 20S has a 6.67-inch screen, uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chip, 128GB internal memory with microSD, 5000mAh battery capacity, it also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging.

The price of the TCL 20S is $250 and it has a lot of outstanding features. However, the limited gaming performance will not be very suitable for those who like playing games, the camera is also not quality.

  1. OnePlus Nord N10 5G

The OnePlus Nord N10 5G once dominated the market in the past, but the development of new smartphones has faded its image. This phone has high quality, a big screen of 6.49 inches, good sound stereo speakers, has NFC, 128GB memory. $299.99 is the price of this phone.

However, the camera quality is not good.

  1. Samsung Galaxy A32 5G

This Samsung smartphone costs $280. This is a smartphone with a lot of advantages. It has 5G mobile network support, a high refresh rate, fast charging, NFC, and 4 rear cameras, 15W fast charge. Display is 6.5 inches with 90Hz refresh,  Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 with RAM: 4GB.

The 8-core CPU (2x 2.0 GHz and 6x 2.0 GHz) is its highlight.

Samsung Galaxy A32 5G has limited internal memory and RAM and is only available in one color.

  1. Moto G Play

Moto G Play has a very low price of about $159.99, a large 5000mAh battery, 6.5-inch screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor, 32GB memory. However, it has a 3G RAM capacity, a small capacity. This is a phone which you can consider if you want a cheap price and useful smartphone.

You can buy it at Amazon or directly from Motorola.

  1. Moto G Power

The most outstanding function of this phone is that it has a large battery capacity, the battery capacity is up to 5000mAh. The screen of Moto G Power is 6.4 inches, using Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 CPU, 4GB RAM with 64GB internal memory. The Moto G Power is available online for $219.99.

The device doesn’t get regular software updates, doesn’t have NFC, but at this price point, we don’t have much to complain about.

  1. Moto G Stylus

This phone is not only cheap, but it also comes with a smartpen. We know that Samsung is famous for its Galaxy Note with S pen but its price is very expensive. With Moto G Stylus, you only need to spend $ 229.99 to own a smartpen with the necessary functions.

In addition to the advantage of the pen, the Moto G Stylus also has an interesting ultra-wide-angle portrait action camera with a quad rear camera system, 128GB of internal memory, and 4GB of RAM.

You can use this phone to work with a 6.4-inch screen (2300 x 1080 pixels resolution) and a battery capacity of up to 4000mAh.

  1. Apple iPhone SE (2020)

Apple not only has expensive phones but it also has affordable phones for customers. The iPhone SE series was launched in 2016, and in 2020 Apple launched a new generation SE with Touch ID and larger size. It costs 399 USD and the three colors are white, black and red.

iPhone SE 2020 has stable battery life, great software support,

resistance to dust and water. It’s similar to the iPhone 8 but with a software upgrade.

iPhone SE 2020 has only one camera on the back and a small screen, but this is still a quality iPhone for people who like Apple and have a tight budget.
