5 decent Android phones with big screens under $200 you can get in America

5 decent Android phones with big screens under $200 you can get in America
Hunting for a budget smartphone that isn't too limited can lead to some frustrating times. That's why we decided to do that for you. See, most sub-$200 phones come with cost-efficient MediaTek chipsets that don't provide reliable LTE coverage in America and other parts of the world, which might be a deal breaker to many customers. 

This doesn't settle the matter, however, as acceptable 4G-connected phones at a sub-$200 price point do exist, and they might be just what you're looking after. In fact, we're pleasantly surprised by the options that a budget a little over $100 bucks can unlock to you these days! 

Granted, none of these five contenders from Cheapsville are flagship material, but they seem to get the job done without breaking the bank. Take a look inside the slideshow and see for yourself. The blue links lead straight to Amazon, by the way.

All of these are crap, better get a Meizu M2 Note with much better specs.

It looks like you didn't notice the Lenovo K3 Note, which have a very similar specs to the Meizu M2 Note.

"The Lenovo A916 ...1GB RAM and 8GB of RAM." Well done to Lenovo being the first to put 9GB of RAM in a phone!

Does the K3 support HSDPA, etc? Wanting to know if it's a good fit for Cricket.
