Cheap Smartphones: How to Find One

When you are thinking of buying a smartphone it is an exciting time and you will be keen to get started and begin to check out the deals on offer. However, instead of diving in and buying before becoming fully informed about what is on offer it is a wise move to check out some tips and advices on getting the best deal around. You might think that all smartphone offers are basically the same but there are some things you can do in order to get a cheap smart phone that will still do the job.

1. Buy online. I think it is pretty clear to most of us by now that buying online is by far the best way to find the top deals quickly and compare different offers without the pressure of a salesman breathing down your neck. You will find plenty of sites offering smartphones at good prices and choosing a reputable one with a safe payment method and plenty of information on the product is the best approach. Be sure to check if the delivery charge is going to push the price up substantially or not. If there is a delivery charge then you might like to check whether buying something like a memory card or case at the same time puts you over any free delivery limit on the site.

2. Look for models that are no longer so in demand. This is a really important piece of advice. The smartphone market moves so quickly that a handset that is only a few months old can already be considered as an old model by many people. One of the best ways to get top bargains is by picking up a smartphone that is not the most up-to-date model around, as it will cost a lot less than the latest one.

3. Shop around. Not at all websites have the same phones at the same prices. Even if you see a good price on one site there is absolutely nothing to stop you from checking for the same model on a different site, just in case you can get a deal that will be the gateway to a cheap smartphone.

4. Check out different type of contracts. If you want an iPhone then you are a bit more limited as to the carriers you can use. However, Android handsets can be obtained with contracts from a number of different carriers, so it makes sense to choose the best deal around in this respect. Try and compare like for like wherever possible and be sure to remember what your own requirements are rather than being carried away by sales talk.

5. Consider pay as you go. Contract deals look more attractive because the initial payment is lower. Not everyone is suited to a contract though, and if you think that your phone usage may vary widely from month to month then you could consider a pay as you go option. As stated, the initial cost will be higher but you could save yourself from paying unnecessary monthly bills for periods when you aren’t using it much.

Cheap smartphones don't necessarily mean bad ones.  With a little research and knowing something about the phones themselves, you can get in under budget.
