At number five is a Huawei Honor 6X.

It's dual rear cameras along with lots of photo tools and most.
The auto six sacks.
Can creat that need depth of field effects.
It's also that a pretty big screen take 5.5 inch display.
The finger print sensors on the back and it's easier to reach.
At number four is the DTE play VH pro which you can pick up for arround 230 dollars.
It might not be the most exciting phone when it comes to design, but it does have great battery life.
The ZTE Blade V8 Pro survived 14 hours in our battery test.
The screen is nice and bright.
But we find the phone to be a. Bit on the heavy side, weighting in at 6.5 ounces.
The V8 Pro also had dual rear cameras and could handle low light situations admirably.
At number three is the Alcatel Idol 5S.
There's so much to like about This phone.
The fingerprint sensor on the rear, handles short cuts, like getting you back to the home screen, or pulling down the notification tray.
While the Idol 5S does not have optical image stabilization, it's digital image stabilization worked pretty well.
It cost around $200, if you get the Amazon Prime edition.
So what's the down side?
The battery life is short, at seven hours and 48 Minutes.
At number two is the amazingly cheap Moto E4.
It costs $130 unlocked or $99 if you get the Amazon Prime version with ads.
The E4 survived more than 14 hours in our tests.
The camera's a bit sluggish when it comes to processing pictures, that may be forgivable because of it's price tag.
The E4 also has a snappy fingerprint sensor that can handle shortcuts Kind of like the Idol 5S.
And the number one cheap phone is the Moto G5 Plus.
It starts at around $230 and it's well worth it.
You get a near stock version of Android on the G5 Plus.
The fingerprint sensor works as well as Apple's touch ID, and it also lets you use gestures as shortcuts.
The 12 megapixel camera is decent, although not great in darker environments.
The G5 Plus can also capture video in 4K.
As CNET editor, Patrick Holland, said, there is no better budget phone than Motorola's Moto G5 Plus.
