Best cheap phones for BritsIn the market for a smartphone that won't decimate your savings account? Here are just a few of our favourite low-cost mobiles.
Prowling the UK high streets for a smartphone that won't decimate your savings, here are just a few of our favorite low-cost mobiles. Motorola's 3rd generation Moto G is it's best yet. With a five-inch display, 30 megapixel camera and a colorful customizable look. Perhaps our favorite feature though is a water-resistant frame which means the phone can survive an accidental trip down the toilet. The Lumia 640's best features are its crisp, colorful 5 inch screen, and an 8 megapixel camera that we found took some rather lovely snaps. It runs Windows Phone, which is easy to navigate and easy on the eyes. But be warned, it doesn't have quite as many apps as Android does. The Alacatel Onetouch Idol 3 may have a frankly, terrible name. But, it does have some nifty features. Including a bright, 4.7 inch screen, and a rather tasteful, slender design, which is something that is not always easy Easy to find on cheaper mobiles. Another Motorola mobile is the MOTO E 4G is very cheap indeed. But it's also good value. Boasting 4G a decent screen and loads of apps by the Android OS. We weren't too impressed with the camera but there's still a lot to like here. Finally something perhaps worth investigating is whether your carrier has slapped its logo on any own brand cheap phones. Recent efforts like the Vodofone Smart Ultra 6, or EE's Harrier Mini have piqued our interest in the last few months. See anything you like?
