10 cheap smartphones from makers you've actually heard of

After presenting you with 10 luxurious, ultra expensive smartphones, it is time to take a look at the opposite side of the spectrum. Because you know, not everyone needs gems and precious metals covering their phone. Mr Average Joe will be just fine with a handset that can do email, access the web, and run most of the popular smartphone apps. At the same time, the smartphones we have selected for today's pick are all been made by respectable manufacturers – none of those non-sense Chinese knock-offs that last 25.3 minutes on a single charge. Do not hesitate to drop a comment below and say which one of these you would get, assuming your budget was tight, and if you can think of a smartphone that we should have included on the list, feel free to let us know!

Quite good phones indeed. But you could've picked other 4 phones rather than "similiar" ..kohh..kohh.identical..kohh...Samsung phones. If i had to pick I would go for the Lumia or the Desire C. Even though the HP Pre 3 for $75 is called stealing.. Damn such a nice phone.. such a nice-goodlooking OS. Ahhh... Hp has gone mad!

How about xperia mini and mini pro??? And u guys should have replaced mini 2 with xperia miro and galaxy y with xperia tipo and tipo dual. all these xperias have got much better looks, ICS, most possibly better camera, better sound quality, bigger battery and some other little features too...

why didnt you include xperia mini pro? its the same price as live with walkman, has a physical keyboard, Bravia screen tech, FFC and all the rest of the features of live with walkman with means it kicks the crap out of all the galaxies here and the desire C.......hell the xperia mini is even cheaper then live with walkman and a LOT cheaper then desire C! The xperias rule this price point furthermore HTC explorer is almost the same price as galaxy y and its again a lot better then Y but didnt get a mention

Where on earth can you pick up the Pre3 for $75? Last time I checked (over the weekend), they are still running for $300+usd! It did note it is from the firesale... Picked up a Pre2 with 2 touch stones over the weekend for less than $150. For us tech freaks/tinkerers, we don't really need eco-system, just creative mind and a great community.

Samsung is no. -1 brand for making smart phones in the world that promise to give smart phone with additional latest features at lowest online price. I am using Samsung smart phones from last two years. I have no issue from this phone .
