Google is playing on your list of Gmail, Google Play, Cloud, and Calendar apps. The iPhone is giving everything in one with its App Store. If you crave one, you don’t need to budget for it for months; instead, look for the following list.
- 10 Samsung Galaxy s3
Price $ 250
The Galaxy S3 went viral at Samsung’s outlets. A couple of years ago, this phone was the perfect choice for most. With 16GB of storage, it’s not fixed there, as Samsung added a MicroSD slot. The screen is 4.8 inches and 720p, the camera is 8 megapixels, 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 2GB RAM.
- 9 Motorola Moto G
Price $ 180
The Motorola Moto G is doing a good deal with 8GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, a 4.5-inch screen, and a 5-megapixel camera. Motorola phones have always been distinguished by their long battery life, this merit works well on their smartphones.
- 8 HTC Desire 610
Price $ 170
The Desire 610 is distinguished by its beautiful design. It has also added the advantage of a front speaker along with a MicroSD slot. The screen is 4.7 inches, the processor is 1.2 GHz, the RAM is 1 GB and 8 GB of storage. The black color is a nice addition to the design.
- 7 Nokia Lumia 356
Price $ 145
Nokia has done well with the Windows 8 look, it became a major feature on their smartphones. The Lumia 356 has a 4.5-inch screen, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, and a meager 513MB of RAM. The camera is in the middle 5 megapixel level. The problem with Lumia is its lack of apps that are at the core of modern phones and small devices!
- 6 iPhone 5
Price $ 250
I know you are a bit surprised to see Apple on the list. However, this price would be available on used Apple iPhones and it all depends on their condition. The camera is 8 megapixels, 16 GB of storage, 4-inch screen and iOS 8.1.1.
- 5 HTC Desire 816
Price $ 250
With a front and rear camera, 1.6GHz quad-core, 1.5GB of RAM, you would probably enjoy this HTC more for its display. The 5.5 inches will give you the best screen you will find in a smartphone for movies and games.
- 4 Sharpened Aquos Crystal
Price $ 150
A smaller screen is still on the impressive side with the Aquos 5-inch screen. Other specs include 1.2GHz quad-core, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, MicroSD, and 8-megapixel camera. Although the display and the price of Aquos are tempting; the poor quality of the camera will make you think twice.
- 3 Large X Max +
Price $ 200
Phablets rarely come across this price point; In case you are unfamiliar with the term, phablets are so named due to their size that falls between phones and tablets. This Grand X Max is a ZTE product that brings you the robust 6-inch 720p display. The processor is 1.2 GHz, the RAM is 2 GB and the internal storage is 16 GB and external MicroSD. ZTE is making the most tempting offer with a front and rear camera with 13 megapixels for the first and 5 megapixels for the second; Long battery life is guaranteed.
- two Huawei Ascend
Price $ 300
A 6-inch screen, four cores at 1.6 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. Huawei offers a front and rear camera with 13 megapixels and 5 megapixels respectively. The camera has a good resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels.
- one One plus one
Price $ 300
This smartphone has very good specs for its price, but it is not widely available in stores. With 5.5-inch 1050p screen, 2.5 GHz quad-core processor, 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, 13 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel selfie camera; you have the smartphone of your dreams.
It may be that One_Plus_One sealed the deal; I would still love to know which one do you prefer and if there is another one that we miss?
