Top 6 sub $150 Android smartphones
The phones are in price order starting from just $50 and topping out at $149.99.

Ulefone really do continue to impress us with their range of phones and the Ulefone BeX is no different. Costing only $89.99, the Ulefone BeX opts for a previous generation octacore Mediatek processor with 1GB RAM, and qHD display.
These details keep the cost low, but from experience with Ulefone devices the BeX is surely going to be a very well made device, and if it ships with the same ROM as the Be Pro then you will be getting a beautiful stock Android experience.
