Whether you are looking for a smartphone newly set price, or you usually have to advise models to family or friends, we offer 13 phones that currently offer the best value, depending on what you need in your everyday life and preferences.

Affordable smartphones: A great leap in quality

Until a few years ago, the red line between high – end and the other was too thick. Very few manufacturers dedicated effort and affection gave ranges that were not the highest. They were long in many markets subsidized by operators and terminals available to the vast majority of users for very little money.

But that time is over and manufacturers that did not have a strong presence among the best-known flagships spoiled the lower ranges. It was time to buy free terminals and a new “race” he emerged strongly. They were not only Motorola or Bq who terminals offering high quality at reduced price. Own brands that have everything with have a price above 600 dollars offered well-executed models, or let the option of previous generation models at a great price and perfectly solvent for the mad dash model year.

In search of better phone quality

“Not long ago trying to be productive or enjoy a smartphone with price content was not easy. But the segment has changed”

In addition to previous generation models, highly recommended other teams offer more than they cost are balanced mid-range, whereas we have told, took a few years of excellent terminals. Most of them are sufficiently prepared to meet his use much of consumers.

To achieve a balanced smartphone without a price to skyrocket, it is essential to know the needs and look at the specifications judiciously without being carried away by the numbers. What recently had to sacrifice when speaking of affordable smartphones, such as design or finish, no longer has it worked. Models from previous years or medium ranges with metal or glass bodies are the order of the day. And in return, as a rule not find fluency problems for common uses of the phone.

Also, diagonal screens have been set up in all ranges and is not unique to the high ranges. And there has also been an important qualitative leap in the panels, which sometimes differ only higher price models for the resolution. Even starting the internal memories no longer have to be very small to lower the price of a smartphone.

“The quality of the cameras of smartphones midrange, and finish up screens (except for the resolution) are finally up”

What about the cameras? Well, something similar to the screens. They maintain the kind of very reliable way, much more than a few years ago, but they are usually at a lower level to high-end. It is with the screen resolution where more level difference are today, but depending on the user, do not reflect the sometimes hefty price differences.

Below we propose 13 smartphones anything expensive and highly recommended if you want a very good terminal without spending too much.

Huawei P8 Lite

We can almost be considered as one of the absolute kings of the free market this year. And it has almost everything: irresistible price in recent months, thoughtful design in a single piece of aluminum, generous 5-inch screen (720p) and enough power along with a 13-megapixel camera.

Nexus 5X

The Nexus 5X is a terminal of the most recommended when we are able to catch a good deal. In our analysis and value their quality but commenting that the starting price was adjusted slightly against the competition. If we get a unit for less than 300 dollars, which is possible, it is an almost unbeatable terminal if your priority is power and excellent performance along with a very good camera and screen with1080p resolution. And do not forget that it is a Nexus, which entails warranty to get Android updates soon.

Alcatel Idol 3

One of the smartphones that we liked about 2015 have good construction, very light, spectacular display, camera performance and great results. The best option if you do not intend to have a phablet is to get the version with 4.7 – inch screen and 720p resolution (it is a very compact terminal for their good frames) coming out for less than 200 dollars, although with only 8 GB of memory internal (but extendable)

ASUS Zenphone 2

ASUS took very seriously balanced range of smartphones and were worth with a series of ZenPhone 2 models as varied. Best of all is the ZenPhone 2, we tested thoroughly, and we highlight the sound, internal memory of 32 GB starting (expandable) and good finish and screen 1080p. It is perhaps the most go weak in this comparison by the noise of the photos.

Moto G 3Gen

There can be no list of smartphones with better value without the presence of the mid-range and entry of Motorola. Were the great boosts the market and this privileged place they deserve? All this does not preclude have seen how competition has already matched and even exceeded them. Below 200 dollars is no longer the only or best option.

The most representative and widely recommended model is the Moto G 8 GB, with a large screen and substantially improves the camera. The finish, not very careful, it is a wise move by the inclusion of spatter resistance, but beware if you are looking for a lot of internal space because it is not the best model of comparative. It would have to go to 16GB with 2GB of RAM, more expensive but a good jump on the basic.

LG G4

Quite a high – end 2015, the best also and especially noted for its 2k screen, power and camera, a mid – range price when in its release its market price was around 650 dollars.

They are the opportunities in this buying guide insist that we should not let pass because the current pace of upgrades, processor, design and other specifications are clear enough for anyone and apart from the internal memory of 32 GB expandable not found frequently in these prices.

Manufacturers new batch entering directly with models of great value should be mentioned OnePlus, whose model X leaves a smartphone where the emphasis has been finishing and appearance, and is certainly the best packaging of all which we propose thanks to its metal body and glass.

Just landed on the market, the Lumia 650 is the current greatest exponent of the recent history of the terminals with Windows Phone, now Windows 10 Mobile: if you bet on this operating system, the specifications of smartphones meet more than what you pay for them.

In this Lumia 650 we can boast 5-inch OLED screen, but with discreet finish right design, and 8 MP cameras, which in these ranges are usually the best.
