Affordable, not cheap: 15 best low-cost smartphones (2015 edition)
When it comes to technology, some people just don’t find it reasonable to spend crazy money on a gadget that gets old in just several years. Yet, those same people still want the full smartphone experience, the apps, and the speed. Are there any affordable phones that would fit all those criteria?

Good news is that with recent launches the answer is 'yes'. We now have phones that are cheap without being downright crappy, with an experience ruined by terrible issues - those affordable devices do not lag terribly, they have decent cameras, and some of them even come with a very likable design.

But which ones are they? We've picked the best affordable phones (running Android or Windows Phone), where affordable does not mean ‘cheap’ in any embarrassing way. Take a look at these best value-for-the-money devices that you can get right now, and let us know which you think is the best low-cost smartphone.

#15: Samsung Galaxy Core Prime

Price: $200

The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime offers the signature TouchWiz experience at a fairly affordable price. The spec sheet of the Galaxy Core Prime does not shine with anything, but apart from the low-res 4.5" display with a resolution of just 480 x 800 pixels, the phone is a decent solution: it packs a quad-core processor, a 5-megapixel main cam and a 2-megapixel selfie shooter, as well as a 2000mAh battery.

#14: Nokia Lumia 635 (AT&T) / 630 (International)

Price: starting from $100 off-contract

The Nokia Lumia 635 (630 internationally) is a handset with a 4.5” IPS display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 system chip, and a 5-megapixel camera, all fairly typical for an affordable phone. What’s not typical at all is the starting price of just $99.99 off-contract - that’s some 40% cheaper than the practically equally capable Moto G. The only downside? The Lumia 635 comes with Windows Phone on board, and the platform still lacks some essential apps. If you’re looking for the best value for the money, though, this is a clear winner.

#13: LG G3 s

Price: $240 off-contract

The LG G3 s is the more compact sibling to the flagship G3, coming with a slightly steeper price than most of the phones in this round-up, but also with a stand-out design with rear-positioned keys and a fairly well-balanced performance sheet. The ubiquitous Snapdragon 400 here powers a 5" 720 x 1280-pixel IPS LCD display with decent colors, a good, 8-megapixel camera and decent battery longevity.

#12: Huawei Honor 4C LTE

Price: $140 off-contract

Huawei has slowly but gradually expanded its presence from a local one into a globally noticeable brand, and its Huawei Honor is a device that has done a lot of the marketing in Huawei's favor recently. A 5" 720p smartphone running Android 4.4 KitKat with Huawei's own EMUI 3.0 custom skin on top, and offering a large, 2550mAh battery with the promise of 2-day longevity, plus a potent, 13-megapixel camera, and topping it all up with good call quality, the Honor meets all our requirements for an all-around solid performance.

#11: Huawei Ascend G6

Price: around $165 off-contract

The Huawei Ascend G6 stands out with its style and affordability among handsets most of which are affordable and well-performing, but not particularly good-looking. The Ascend G6 strikes that right balance - with a starting price of $165, it is on par with its competitors, but matches it in terms of performance and outdoes them in style. The G6 has got a 4.5” IPS display, a 1.2GHz quad-core chip, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front cam.

#10: HTC Desire 610

Price: $140 (AT&T GoPhone) | $175 (unlocked)

The HTC Desire 610 on AT&T GoPhone is really a steal at just $140: it brings a plastic, but original and very good looking design, a very decent 8-megapixel camera, and a fairly long lasting 2040mAh battery. The screen is also large and has decent colors, but it makes a compromise with resolution: it's a 4.7" display with 480 x 854 pixel resolution.

#9: Xiaomi Redmi 2

Price: $140 off-contract

The Xiaomi (pronounce "show-me") Redmi 2 is one of the most affordable of the Android bunch here, yet it packs pretty stellar specs for the price, and it runs buttery smooth. With a new, colorful and fun plastic design, the Redmi 2 has a playful appearance. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat with MIUI 6 on board, and that skin is very rich in useful additions. You also get a 4.7" 720p display, a good 8-megapixel main camera with a 2-megapixel front shooter, and a dual SIM option. It's a bit of an adventure ordering it from Chinese phone resellers, but hardly a risk as Xiaomi is one of the biggest brands in China that takes pride in good craftsmanship of its devices.

#8: Xiaomi Mi 4i

Price: $250

The Mi 4i from emerging Chinese phone maker Xiaomi is what the plastic iPhone 5c was to the flagship iPhone 5 at the time: a more affordable version of the handset that offered similar experience in a more affordable body. The Mi 4i shares this similarity with the flagship-grade Xiaomi Mi 4, a phone with a metal frame, and a variety of options for the back cover, while the Mi 4i has a plastic, wrap-around shell. It packs quite the punch with a Snapdragon 615 system chip and the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop with the company's popular MIUI v6. It's worth noticing, that for whatever reason, there seems to be a slight but consistent slowdown when you start-up apps even on this well equipped technologically device, and that could be quite the nuisance.

#7: Motorola Moto E (2015 edition)

Price: $120/$150 off-contract

The 2015 edition of the Motorola Moto E continues the tradition of the ultra affordable Moto E, but upgrades in a few key areas: it's got a larger, 4.5-inch display (with a qHD resolution), and it comes in an LTE version with a much more powerful processor. There is also a cheaper, $120 3G version with a Snapdragon 200, but for $30 more - at a starting price of $150 - the 4G LTE Moto E is a device that makes much less of a compromise with its Snapdragon 410 system chip and connectivity. The camera on both is also improved to a 5-megapixel one with auto-focus, but image quality is still far from stellar.

#6: Blu Vivo Air

Also known as: Gionee Elife S5.1 / Kazam Tornado 348 / Allview X2 Soul Mini
Price: $170 off-contract

Holding onto the BLU Vivo Air for the very first time, it’s hard to imagine that it’s priced at $200 – the outright cost for the phone; not subsidized. That’s pretty incredible given its world-class razor profile and the premium aesthetic that’s attached to its design. With a 4.8-inch 720 x 1280-pixel AMOLED display, a very decent MediaTek MT6592 system chip, and above average battery longevity, it's an impressive package for the price. The camera is a bit hit or miss, but it's hard to demand perfect at $200, isn't it?

#5: Samsung Galaxy A3

Price: $250

The Samsung Galaxy A3 is the most affordable phone in Samsung's new A series, and what makes it stand out among all other affordable phones is its all-metal super-slim body that looks very stylish. The big compromise with the Galaxy A3 is its low-res 4.5" qHD AMOLED display, but it more than makes up for that slight pixelization with good overall performance of the capable Snapdragon 410 system chip, a very good for its class 8-megapixel auto-focus camera and an also well-performing 5MP selfie shooter. With plentiful 16GB of internal storage, and an upgrade path to Android 5.0 Lollipop (promised by Samsung), the A3 is one of our favorite affordable phones so far in 2015.

#4: Meizu M1 Note

Also known as: Meizu Blue Charm Note
Price: $200 off-contract

The hard-to-get exotic Meizu M1 Note is a no-compromise affordable phone that blows the competition away with a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920-pixel display, a very good 13-megapixel main camera and a 5-megapixel selfie shooter, a colorful body with compact for its size dimensions (it's got super slim side bezels, a feature reserved for costlier devices), and a long-lasting battery. Problem? You have to order it from phone resellers (we consistently find the best prices at Pandawill.com) and you don't get the standard warranty you might be used to with first-tier manufacturers. If you're willing to go through the hassle of waiting for the order from China, the Meizu M1 Note is not likely to disappoint.

#3: Motorola Moto G (2014 edition)

Price: starting from $179

The Motorola Moto G (2014 edition) improves on the successful formula of the original G, adding a larger, 5-inch display with similarly pleasing colors and the signature, near-stock, fast Android experience. With a promise for a quick migration to Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Moto G is the most future-proof of all the afore-mentioned affordable devices. It can also be customized with colorful shells and that's a nice touch. Other spec highlights include a zippy, quad-core Snapdragon 400 system chip, spacious (but not record-breaking) battery, front-firing stereo speakers, and a much improved 8-megapixel camera. With the right balance of speed, looks, and camera performance, the Moto G is our pick for the best affordable smartphone money can buy.

#2: Asus Zenfone 2

Price: $199 off-contract

The Asus Zenfone 2 is a close tie for the first place with the OnePlus One, and quite honestly, it's very hard to pick a favorite between the two. The Zenfone 2 has the even more alluring price of just $199 off contract, basically offering a similar level of hardware prowess and design finish. The big difference seems to be in the processor: the Zenfone 2 features a brand new Intel Atom Z3580 system chip that runs tasks fairly well. The phone also features an impressive 4GB of RAM, and a fairly good camera.

#1: OnePlus One

Price: $249 off-contract

The OnePlus One came with quite the marketing campaign: it promised the skies, and in the smartphone world that meant the same processor and chops as other flagship phones for half the price. This charming promise did come true, but in very scant qualities: you had to sign up on waiting lists to buy the elusive OnePlus One, and waiting times were long. Now, nearly a year after its launch, the OnePlus One is officially available with no invitation required and at an extremely low price of just $250 off contract. It's a great value for the money: a fast, good-looking phone running Android 5.0 Lollipop and boasting a fairly color accurate 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920-pixel (Full HD) display.

True, the Redmi 1s is at par than Moto G with price tag of Moto E and that Redmi Note it'll scare the local brands like Micromax, Karbonn, Lava, etc. and even Xiaomi's home companies like Huawei, Lenovo, ZTE, etc.

Mi 3 has lesser price than Moto G and specs of Nexus 5 and other big OEM's flagships.

Well said. I used Mi3 and it feels like an S4/iPhone6 competitor and screen quality is amazing. I mean no other brand can offer such screen quality even for $400 for sure. If Xiaomi maintains good service in India they can blow away Samsung and others. Also Android One, Huawei Honor Holly should be in this list. This looks like a US list sans Redmi

6. Planterz (Posts: 1579; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)

Most of the phones listed are relatively new, but older devices need to be considered. Always remember to troll (in the deep-sea fishing sense of the word) eBay and Amazon for mid-range devices from a year ago.

For example, for $110 you can get a new LG F6. Dual core 1.2GHz SD S4+, 1GB RAM, 4.5" qHD screen, and LTE connectivity on T-Mo and AT&T bands. Sure, the Moto E is nice for the price, but I'd rather buy this. FF camera, LED flash on the main, bigger screen, and easily swappable battery. Oh, and LTE.

Examples like this exist for pretty much any provider in the US. And such phones should work on GSM networks outside the US. For $240 you can buy a brand new Nexus 4 off eBay, and that phone easily smokes all the phones on this list, for a few bucks more.

NOS midrange phones from a year ago, or even flagships from 2 years ago can be found for pretty cheap, and are often better than the crop of new "affordable" phones. Don't forget the forgotten phones.

9. Jason78 (Posts: 179; Member since: 10 Apr 2013)

An excellent strategy and one I personally use. I generally buy a 1 to 1 1/2 year old phone used on Ebay, use it for 3-6 months until something else catches my eye, and then sell it on Ebay for close to what I paid for it.

29. WahyuWisnu (Posts: 1001; Member since: 29 May 2014)

I do quite the opposite. In Indonesia, the price of second hand phone is not down by much, and early bird got a discount. So, If buy a brand new, just released phone, I got around 5-15% discount plus times some extra goodies. The downside to this is, I only have a couple of minute trying it when lining up for the early bird line. The upside to this were, if I don't like the phone, I could sell it in 1 months and almost lose no money (because early bird got a discount).

Usually after 3-9 months, I would sell the phone and lost around 10%-25% (depending on brand), and I use a brand new phone again. I consider that as RENTING the phone.

14. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3682; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)

Please remove that 530 crap, 520 is still a better choice than that pos.

posted on 28 Jul 2014, 11:33

20. Planterz (Posts: 1579; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)

They look pretty similar to me. Slightly better processor but slightly inferior GPU (Adreno 305 vs 302). Less built-in storage on the 530, but both have microSD expansion (I have no idea how WP handles app storage, so I don't know if internal space matters or not).

Both are OK options if one needs a cheap smartphone but doesn't want (or can afford) a big screen or plays graphically intensive games. But there are better Android choices than the 530 for the price (app selection for Android far outstrips WP). The off-contract prices for the 520/521 are tempting for those on an extremely tight budget. I have to admit this, despite being a WP hater, since the Androids at that price are horrible beyond belief, But even for those that are that broke, it's only a couple skipped fast food meals, 6-packs of beer, cans of energy drink, or a pizza delivery away from a far superior device.

At this price point no Android device gives better experience. There's no use of having millions of apps in the store if we can't install and use at least 20-30 apps without compromising on the performance. WP gives better and smooth experience with low specd device also.

Yes Redmi Note with beefier specs is even better than Redmi 1S or Redmi 2 at just few dollars more. I use it with Tmobile in US and it's been super reliable and smooth.

My list is even shorter because if it doesn't have LTE capability I don't even consider it worth not even $50.

If you don't talk/text/data much and don't mind 3G, the Moto G Boost Mobile version is one of the best, it is under $100 (Depends on tax). $79.99 sometimes at Target. Flash it to Android 4.4.4 Verizon ROM to use on Page Plus. Great gift for people who do little talk and just want a nice, fair decent specs smartphone.

From my experiences. I owned one.

PA said that WP is a downside...
#9 Nokia 635
What’s not typical at all is the starting price of just $99.99 off-contract - that’s some 40% cheaper than the practically equally capable Moto G. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE? The Lumia 635 comes with Windows Phone on board, and the platform still lacks some essential apps.

I think its all about preference, if you're into the very latest apps then the platform may not be for you and that's understandable, however for the average consumer having with WP having over 300,000 and growing including the majority of the most popular apps general consumers would be very satisfied.

For myself things features such as Live Tiles/ Live Folders makes Windows Phones a better deal than having a few apps I dont need launchers and such for my smartphone experience I simply want something streamlined others may feel different but the what choice is all about.

I dont see one OS being better than the other just different.

I am almost shocked by this comment....seriously...lol.

I will say this....I am going pre paid for right now...and I was tempted to get a Lumia just because of the price.....this was before the Moto G launched.

I always say my phone has to be a good phone first, everything else 2nd. And this is something Nokia, Motorola and BB excel at.

If it wasnt for the Moto G, I would have either got an old Moto phone or a Lumia. And WP would be my next choice just because of the choice in hardware. I have always stayed this since WP launched.

Yes there are.I'm really interested in seeing what 5 years from now what the landscape will look like, smartphones will make these current devices look like second generation Blackberry devices etc.

Who will survive who will not?, Will Android own 100% of the market?, with 80% percent it looks that way guess only time will reveal. Its interesting nonetheless.
