The bigger of a pair of new mid-rangers by Lenovo, the Motorola Moto G5 Plus was well accepted by us here at PhoneArena. It comes with almost premium-feeling design and pretty solid battery life. The lower price tag offered by Amazong makes it even more appealing.
Motorola Moto E4
Regular price: $129.99 | Prime Exclusive: $99.99 (23% off)
Released just last month, the Moto E4 is for users that are looking for a somewhat cheap device that simply gets the job done.

Motorola Moto G4
Regular price: $169.99 | Prime Exclusive: $119.99 (29% off)
Last year's Motorola Moto G4 was not a bad device for its price range. And Amazon is offering a bargain on it, too, so it packs even more value for a mid-ranger now.

Alcatel Idol 5S
Regular price: $279.99 | Prime Exclusive: $199.99 (29% off)
A brand new device by Alcatel that comes with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625, 3 GB of RAM, and a 1080 x 1920 pixels display. The Alcatel Idol 5S is an upper mid-ranger that offers a lot of bang for its buck.
Regular price: $149.99 | Prime Exclusive: $99.99 (33% off)
The one thing that makes the Alcatel A50 memorable is a very special external accessory – a back cover with a grid of colorful LEDs. However, since it's sold separately you can only get the phone itself with a discount. It's a device for people that don't need a powerhouse in their pocket, but will still do the trick for the most basic of smartphone use cases.

A strictrly entry-level smartphone, the Alcatel A30 is for people that want nothing, but the essentials – browsing the Internet, making calls, and using IM services.
BLU R1 HD
Regular price: $99.99 | Prime Exclusive: $49.99
If you're looking for a smartphone cheaper than a lot of feature phones and you don't require it to be running Android 7.0 Nougat, take a look at the BLU R1 HD. It's severely lacking in the hardware and software department, but you get what you paid for.
