Hey there! looking for a new budget phone but don’t have enough money in the bank for those expensive shiny flagship phones well then you have come to the right place as we will be displaying a list of best budget smartphones which you could consider buying without it being a burden on your pocket.
P.s. the list will not include any iPhones because Apple doesn’t do budget, so if you’re thinking about buying an iPhone, well, then we can’t do anything about that can we…
Before displaying the list let me tell you that these budget phones do not compromise on the specs sheet as all of them have very high end specs offering very smooth performance. Numbers of budget smartphones have also released in the start of this year (2017) which will also be included in the following list. Also I will be displaying (in my opinion) the best budget smartphone there is at the end of this list as it is called the “flagship killer” and has been considered the very best by big tech reviewers i.e. “MKBHD” “THE VERGE” “CNET” and many more.
