The Nokia 3.1 is the economical type of phone that seems to fill the store shelves directly from the production line. Let me explain, it looks good enough and although specifications do not impress anyone, they are fair to the price that is sold.

It is still a reference brand equipment, but at this price level, there are better options available.

Moto G5

The disappointments are the battery and occasionally the performance of the phone. Again, it is difficult to discuss this issue when the price is the deciding factor at the time of purchase.

BQ Aquaris C

Hisense is another Chinese brand that bets strong on the price/quality ratio, even on models like the H12, with launch soon. This H11 Lite, on the other hand, bets on the 3,400 mAh battery and the screen whose diagonal is very close to 6 inches. Integrates fingerprint sensor, too.

  • Price: from 129.99 €

With the top-of-the-range XZ3 taking over as the “flag” among the top-of-the-range Xperia, there is still room in the “menu” of Sony Mobile to have cheaper models. The suggestion that we leave to the adepts of the brand that look for to spend little is this L1 with screen HD of 5.5 inches.

Attention to NFC support and the typical design of the previous generation of the brand, with curved surfaces and narrow margins between the screen and the edges of the device.

Important Considerations for Buying a Cheap Mobile Phone

There is a wide range of smartphones at the entry level, which makes the choice more complicated. The secret lies in our ability to find low priced models that already include some specifications and features that until recently were commonplace only in mid-range devices.

Admittedly, we do not find the premium features of these top-of-the-range phones on these phones, but NFC technology, the fingerprint sensor and the “infinite” screen are good examples of the added value of today’s smartphones.

A small “trick” to improve the performance of your most modest smartphone: install the least amount of apps and extras installed on your smartphone, as these elements may be occupying internal memory or running in the background, resulting in unnecessary resource consumption.
