Easter is a great time to give gifts or spoil yourself. If you are on a budget and wanta new phone, we present you the best budget smartphones this season.
Our Criteria For Best Budget Smartphones
Our criteria for picking our list constitute of three factors:
- Cost: Because this is a list of budget phones, cost is a huge factor
- Value for Money: This is a mix of software, how powerful the phone is, battery capacity, camera and storage
The idea is that the phones on this list are not the cheapest but also offer enough value for money to stand out from the rest of the pack. So, which phones make our list? Come find out.
The TECNO W2 has a 4.5-inch and 1 GB RAM (which is the minimum we recommend for multitasking). The main camera is an 8 megapixel snapper. It also has a 2,500 mAh battery to ensure that the phone keeps going longer than most of its competitors. Internal storage is 8 GB, so be sure to get a memory card. It runs Android 6 Marshmallow, which means that you won’t have problem with app compatibility.
Solo Aspire 2
SOLO’s Aspire 2 has the same screen size, RAM and internal storage as the W2 above. The main camera is an 8 megapixel unit as well. Battery capacity is lower though at 1700 mAh. Cost is N23,0000.
FERO A4501 is another 4.5-incher. But it has a one-up over the others – the display is protected by Gorilla Glass. That is a huge plus for a device at this price point. The RAM and storage are the same as the above two competitors. It has a 5 megapixel main camera though and a smaller 1600 mAh battery.
The Fero A4501 runs Android 6 Marshmallow as well and has USB Host for plugging in a flash drive or other USB device. Price is N23,000.00 only.
All the above smartphones are powered by a 1.2 or 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, so in terms of power, they are evenly matched. They all also have 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB internal storage and memory card slot. The most compelling of the three appear to be the TECNO W2 and the Fero A4501. It is up to you to decide whether you want to go with the beefier battery of the former or the Gorilla Glass protection of the latter. Happy shopping!
