If you’re a smartphone junkie like me and on a strict budget then you’ve come to the perfect place. This is a list of the phones with the best quality that will cost you the least. You will have the same experience with these phones than you would have had on a more expensive phone but the strain on your wallet will be a lot less. This is a way to have the best of both worlds.

iPhone SE

At £350 this IPhone is apples cheapest but still one of its best. Complete with a beautiful design, great camera and first generation touch ID not to mention sub 720p display. It is a hybrid between the IPhone 5s and 6s. Like the 5s it has a four-inch display and like the 6s it can easily be used with one hand.

One Plus 3


While this phone is not from apple, Google, or Samsung it still holds it own. Complete with 6GB of RAM and snapdragon 820 processor. It is the best option out of all the budget smartphones out there. At just £329 it’s worth every penny.

Samsung Galaxy A3

For £250 you will get a metal and glass design and incredible battery life. The Galaxy A3 is the smallest phone offered in the Galaxy lineup. It runs in a quad-core processor and has 1.5GB of RAM, the base memory very easily expands with a Micro-SD card. The battery life is so incredible it can last for two whole days. Now that’s what I’m talking about.

Motorola Moto G4

The Motorola G series has always been on the list of the best budget friendly smartphones. The screen resolution could not be any better at 1080p display that will always light up courtesy of the octa-core CPU that powers it. The 2GB of RAM will assist you with all your multi-tasking needs. If you want this phone you can have it at the low price of £150.

Honor 5C

The honor 5c looks and feels like something it is not, you may think it is an expensive phone but it only costs £150. The camera is front facing with 8-mega pixels. The battery lasts up to two days as long as you don’t do anything that strains too much battery like gaming. In conclusion, the honor 5c can easily match phones that cost two or three times the price.
