Budget Smartphones – What’s Best?

Getting a really good smartphone on a tight budget involves a bit of shopping around and may involve you making a compromise or two on the features you were originally looking for. However, it is certainly not impossible, and getting budget smartphones for a good price is exactly what the following list is all about.

There are so many new models and updates coming out seemingly every day that models very quickly become obsolete in the eyes of those who only want the absolute latest model in their pocket. Of course, this is good news for those of us who would prefer to get a great phone that maybe lacks a feature or two but makes up for that with a stunning price and a tried and tested performance. All the prices quoted are for getting the phone on a contract.

  • Apple iPhone 3GS. This isn’t the most up-to-date iPhone but it is still a top quality phone that you can get a lot of use out of. The features aren’t quite as high as on the more modern iPhone 4 but there are still all the basic things that you would expect on any good smartphone. On a contract you can get this for between $50 and $100.
  • Samsung Intercept. Unlike the iPhone this is a model that runs on the Android operating system. It is an attractive looking machine that makes up for its lack of some of the more advanced smartphone features by coming at well under $100 on most contract deals. In fact, you might just get it free, which is an incredible offer for such a good phone.
  • HTC Droid Incredible. This is an Android powered machine that gives a fantastic 8 megapixel camera. The screen display is a shade smaller than some other models, but 3.7 inches is still pretty good size. You should be looking to pay less than $100 for this ever popular phone, as it has been replaced in the modernity stakes by some more up-to-date models.

  • T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide. If you want a full, conventional keyboard input then this could be the one for you. The screen is reasonably if not spectacularly sized at 3.2 inches and all in all you get a great little phone for less than $50 these days.
  • HTC Wildfire. This is another smartphone that you should be able to get your hands on for under $100. It comes with a nice set of specifications such as the Android 2.1 system, a 5 megapixel camera and a 528 MHz processor. The screen is 3.2 inches and it has both GPS and Wi-Fi capability.
  • HTC Droid Eris. Here we have another HTC Android phone that shouldn’t cost you more than $100. It is nice and slim and has a reasonably sized touch screen that comes in at 3.2 inches. The camera is 5 megapixels and there all the basic features you would expect. The only really problem that users have reported with this one is a rather short battery life.
