We try to make a list of great low-cost phones each year, but this year is by far the best yet!
The following list includes new and old favourites that are available to buy now, and at these prices you would be mad not to!
5 amazing phones for under $150!
#1 Xiaomi Mi4C – $120
The Xiaomi Mi4C hasn’t received much love on international sites, but now that the price has dropped well below $150 customers around the globe are tempted by the phone.
The Mi4C was launched as a budget flagship for those wanting an updated Mi4 and didn’t want to spend too much on the Mi5. The Mi4C offers LTE support (1800/2100/2600MHz) , a Snapdragon 808 chipset, 13-megapixel main camera, 5-inch Sharp display, slim body and dual SIM support.
The most amazing feature though is the price as the Xiaomi Mi4C costs only $120 online!
#2 ZTE Nubia Z7 Max – $123
Nubia might be on version 11 of their phones, but many fans of the brand are still head over heals with the previous Z7 (which is only 2 generations old).
The Snapdragon 800 powered smartphone comes with LTE support (1800/2100/2600MHz), 2GB RAM, and 32GB internal memory. The device also boasts a 5.5-inch display.
#3 Lenovo Vibe P1 – $147
The Lenovo Vibe P1 is basically a metal clad ZUK Z1 with only a few spec changes. Like the Z1 it boasts a 5.5-inch FHD display and fingerprint scanner under the home button but features a Snapdragon 615 chipset and 2GB RAM to keep thinks affordable.
The Lenovo phone also supports LTE (1800/2100MHz), has room for up to 128GB SD cards, Corning Gorilla Glass, and 13 megapixel main cameras.
#4 Xiaomi Redmi Pro 3 – $144.99
Yup, another Xiaomi but this time its the Redmi Pro 3 with all metal body and rear fingerprint scanner. The Redmi Pro 3 has become a firm favourite with many reviews for its nice balance of low-cost and great build, plus performance is spot on too!
The Redmi Pro 3 is great for those of you wanting a smaller phone as it comes with a 5-inch panel and profiled metal body. Specs include a Snapdragon 616 chipset, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, 13-megapixel main camera, and LTE (1800/2100/2600MHz).
#5 LeEco X620 – $159
This one costs a little more than $150 but that extra $9 could be money very well spent. The LeEco phone comes with an all metal body, USB Type C and a 16-megapixel rear camera (the best of this list). The front camera is also an impressive 8 megapixel, and there is a fingerprint scanner, and decent 5.5-inch FHD display too!
Dual SIM, LTE (1800/2100/2600MHz) and a 3000mAh battery make up the rest of the specification highlights!
