The hardware and operating systems on mobile phones have undergone considerable upgrading in 2015. Nowadays, the cheap mobile phones do more than merely letting you to talk and send or receive text messages.
Finding the cheapest phone is not impossible. The UK market is full of mobile phones that users can get on a budget but continue using to browse, take photos, record videos, make calls and receive or send text messages.
Some of the best phones on a budget include the following:
Motorola Moto G
You will struggle to find a much cheaper mobile phone in the UK market than Motorola Moto G, which was launched in 2014. The only downside to this phone is the disappointing battery life and a much lower sharpness compared to what the Moto G of 2013 has.
The 8GB version goes for £159 while the 16GB version sells for £189.
Sony Xperia M2 Aqua
The phone boasts of a good battery life as well as top-notch water resistance. Some of the less admirable qualities include the uncompetitive screen as well as clumsy waterproofing flaps. In terms of style, this phone resembles Xperia Z3.
For a phone only offer, customers have to pay £158.
Microsoft Lumia 640
Impressive display and great battery life are the two main selling points of this cheap mobile phone. The two main drawbacks include the fact that the phone is not one of the best looking and it also has an older processor.
However, paying only £118 for the phone only is a good deal.
Huawei Ascend G7
The phone offers value for money, in addition to possessing a premium design. The unoriginal design is perhaps one of the reasons the phone is cheap. The 720pixel screen is also not great news if you need a phone with better specs.
The phone costs around £199.
You will not find many cheaper 4G mobile phones than the EE Kestrel model. Quad-core power is one of the phone’s major attractions. The low build qualities in addition to the childish-looking Emotion UI are not good attributes of this phone.
Paying only £99.99 for this phone is a bargain.
HTC Desire 510
With a speedy operating system, the HTC Desire 510 is one of the best 4G mobile phones on a budget. The unattractive screen and limited internal storage are just but a few of the less desirable qualities of the phone.
With a retail price of £123.99, this phone is a bargain.
Nokia Lumia 735
The front facing camera takes good shots. The HD screen is a definite plus of the phone. On the other hand, the sluggish feel of the phone takes away from its impressive features. The frustrating keyboard does not help matters.
The phone alone costs £179.99.
Motorola Moto E
The solid design of Motorola Moto E makes the low price for this phone great. On the other hand, some of the display issues that the phone has provide a few reasons for the cheap price. The insufficient storage is also not good.
The phone goes for as low as £100.
Nokia Lumia 530
This is a tiny Smartphone that goes for a ridiculously small price. The phone is not only cheap, but also has support for micro SD card. The absence of a front facing camera and flash are some of the drawbacks that the phone has.
The phone is available at a SIM-free rate of £54.99 from the Microsoft store.
