The Top Affordable Smartphones

Smartphones are flooding the market. Thanks to their availability in literally every corner of the earth, smartphones are now cheaper and more affordable to those with lower budgets. What’s more, you don’t need to opt for the highend smartphone because the budget one is nearly as good – just make sure you’re getting one with solid quality.

Here are some of the best affordable smartphones on the market this year:


Samsung Galaxy J5

As Samsung reports, the Samsung Galaxy J5 has been revamped with longer lasting battery life and the trademark Super AMOLED. This gives it an edge over its competitors in this category even though the camera performance may not be as consistent as rivals. However, the screen display more than compensates for such a shortcoming. Still, make sure that you have the best protective phone case for your Samsung Galaxy J5 to expand its lifespan. The only other phone that does better is Motorola’s Moto G which we’ve also reviewed in this list.

Motorola Moto E (2015)

If you prefer a compact smartphone at a reasonably low cost and with an Android OS, the 2015 Motorola Moto E is the best choice for you. It has a battery life of thirteen and a half hours, fantastic screen and above average performance. You can watch videos for a longer time than when using its rivals in the same category.

Alcatel Pixi 4

The Alcatel Pixi 4 is the most affordable out of all the phones on this list. Conversely, it’s among the best available. The camera boasts 5 megapixels and it runs on Android Marshmallow.  In addition it features a 5 inch touch screen. In fact, its features make rivals look pedestrian.

The simplicity of this Alcatel allows for its use across all age groups. Even though it does not offer the best performance, the Pixi 4 is versatile and resourceful.

Lenovo P2

The Lenovo P2 offers the best in terms of battery life. One charge gives you thirty hours of uninterrupted use with its closest rival, the Moto Z Play, a distant second at twenty five. In other words, the P2 is the benchmark of affordable phones.

It weighs 177grams which is slightly heavier and bigger than its immediate rivals. But, the build quality and touch screen display are unmatched. More expensive smartphones are put to shame on certain features. It’s definitely the best budget phone on the market this year.

Moto G4

The reincarnation of the Moto G boasts a robust smartphone that is much faster to operate than the aforementioned phones. Thanks to an octa-core Snapdragon processor the G4 can process data at speeds higher than pricier smartphones. This gives it a larger market share especially in the second half of the year despite its larger than usual size when compared to its rivals.

The G4 camera combines Full HD resolution on the screen with an excellent camera that incorporates a 13mp sensor not to mention a battery that will last for days on end. All these features ensure a great user experience throughout.

If you are in the market for a smartphone that is cheap and has excellent features, you can pick any from the list above depending on your needs and requirements.
