While we do talk about smartphones and often complain that they are out-of-budget. The thing is that you need to have proper research before mourning over the smartphones rate. I do believe that certain smartphones are over-priced. But then, there are some very compatible smartphones introduced in the market for lower income groups/students.
The mobile phone companies are aware that they need to come up with economic smartphones to target larger array of consumers. This is true for companies like Apple and Samsung. We are here today with the best budgeted smartphones of 2022! We guarantee them to be under $500!
iPhone SE 2022
You believe it or not. Apple has the most budgeted smartphone for 2022. It costs around $429 and is available in most countries. This is a 3rd generation phone which is capable of updating to iOS for 7 years! With this price, it offers a 4.7-inch screen. However, it does lack night mode in camera which is something annoying. However, it has the same A15 processor as that of the iPhone 13 Pro Max.it is waterproof, has a decent camera of 12 megapixel. Offers 5G. Battery life is good, can make up to a day if not pushed hard. So if size and night-mode isn’t an issue and you want to have an Apple phone, go for it!. But i will say, if you are not willing to change phone over time, grab $50 extra and buy a 128GB one!
2. Google Pixel 5A
