The best 6 budget mobile phones

There are some really excellent deals on mobile phones. Even the really budget-conscious can find a great phone at a much smaller price. You can get great performance, with fancy high end features for a fraction of the price these days. It’s also a competitive marketplace, so there are lots of incentives out there.

However, whilst there are cheaper phones on the market, some of them far outweigh others. So we’ve put together a little guide to the top 6 that are really good value for under £200.

1. Moto G8 (

This handsome mobile phone from Motorola puts out a really strong performance and has a great battery life. It feels really premium with a substantial display. The battery lasts a full day even if you’ve been using it extensively. It’s a really affordable phone, at a great price.

2. Oppo A5 2020 (

This handset has a spacious 6.5m screen, huge battery life and great kerb appeal. Whilst you’ve only got two colour choices black or white, you do get a plastic screen protector and a silicone case for free. So you won’t have to splash out on the accessories.

3. Huawei P Smart (

This handset boasts a very nice camera, offers plenty of storage, and terrific battery life. It has a nice sharp design and the screen is a good size.

4. Honor 10 Lite (

It’s virtually identical to the Huawei P Smart but if you’re a selfie addict, or an avid Snapchatter its front-facing camera will nicely do the job for you.

5. Motorola One Macro (

A great budget phone, with a good size screen. It’s robust and the battery life is above average. It’s a great all-rounder.

6. Real me 3 Pro (

This sporty handset has an eye-catching design. It has a bright generous screen and plenty of features. The camera is top-notch for its price point, and the battery life is impressive too.

For those of you on a budget, you’ll find there’s a huge selection to choose from. Some of the cheaper phones do have very capable cameras, nice sized displays for playing games or watching videos, and an impressive battery life.
