These are the best Android phones under $300 worth buying right now. Lately, smartphones are getting overly expensive, but those aren’t your only option. If you don’t have $900 to spend on the latest Pixel 3 XL or Galaxy Note 9, try one of these instead. Budget Android phones that don’t cost an arm and a leg.
Buyers no longer want to pay top dollar or sign a new 2-year contract. Instead, they’re looking for great phones that are affordable. And lately, manufacturers have focused on delivering exactly that.
If you’re like a lot of people looking for a cheaper route, or simply don’t need to spend top dollar, these are the phones to consider. We recommend devices that deliver nearly the same experience as more expensive ones but at a lower price.
Be careful though, as cheap Android phones sold through carriers typically offer the bare minimum specs. They’re missing key features or have older and outdated software. Another way to cut costs on a smartphone is the display. Most budget phones have very poor screens or low resolution. Those are the phones you want to avoid, and what we avoid in our roundup.
Our suggestions all cost under $300 but are still good enough to recommend. No, you won’t get a curved display like the Galaxy S9+, but you can come close. Including a pre-owned Galaxy S8 for only $299. Basically, these phones are a lot better than you’d expect and still deliver a great experience. We’ll update this list with several more great cheap Android phones throughout 2019.
