Couponbox has created the ONLY budget cell phone gallery you’ll ever need in 2017.
Instead of counting down to what we think is the number one budget cell phone, we’re just going to start with it.
Here’s a spot-on review of it to whet your whistle:
#1. Galaxy J3 – $129.96
The Galaxy J3 is not the cheapest budget cell phone on our list, but it certainly comes close. At around $129.99, it has all the features you could want in a budget cell phone. It’s even got some amazing bells and whistles.
The rest of the budget smartphones have many of the same features and quality, all under $200, except for two.
Here they are:
#2. Moto G Plus (5th Generation) – $229.96
The 5th generation of the Moto G Plus is worth the extra money if you are looking for a fast budget cell phone or back up cell phone. It runs Android 7.0 Nougat and has a hot pair of cameras: 12MP rear- and 5MP front-facing.
#3. Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 – $168.96
If you are an electronics nerd, then you know that Xiaomi is always coming up with the goods for cheaper. This budget cell phone, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 comes equipped with 3GB RAM, 64GB of storage, a 5.5 inch screen, a 2.1 GHz 10-Core and a 13 MP rear camera. Now that’s a bargain cell phone!
#4. ZTE Axon 7 Mini – $199.96
The ZTE Axon 7 Mini is a great GSM phone with dual SIM and a super fast processor. On top of that, it’s just a beautiful budget phone.
#5. Lenovo Phab 2 – $199.96
The Lenovo Phab 2 is the perfect budget cell phone for use as both a main phone and a backup. This one is particularly great as a second (or third) phone for people who travel a lot. It’s got a dual SIM and two powerful cameras (13 MP rear and 5 MP front) that you might not expect to find in a budget cell phone.
#6. Blu R1 HD – $99.96
The Blu R1 HD could easily be on the top of the best budget cell phone list simply because of its amazing price of $99!!! It doesn’t pack the power of the other budget cell phones on the list (though a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor and 1 GB of RAM is nothing to snicker at) And for many people, the dual SIM, microSD capability of up to 64 GB, the 8 MP rear camera and the 5 MP front camera with front-facing flash is more than enough.
#7. Huawei Honor 6X – $229.96
For the final budget cell phone on the list, we go above $200 once more. And for good reason. This phone was built to compete with the iPhone 7 Plus which is easily three times the cost. This beauty and power of this budget cell phone can blow cell phones out of the water with its dual lens rear camera (12 MP and 2MP), dual SIM, 8-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage expandable up to 128 GB with a microSD card.
This phone could easily have been number one, if it weren’t for the amazing prices on the other budget cell phones on this list. Now go out and save some money on a new budget cell phone!
