Best Android Phones Under $300



Essential Phone

Essential Phone

Before Apple made the notch "popular" the Essential Phone PH-1 did it. This company is from the co-founder of Android itself, Andy Rubin. 

The Essential Phone is basically a Galaxy S8 in a smaller package made from Titanium and ceramic. This phone runs Android 9 Pie already, and got the update the day Google sent it to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. You're getting a 5.7-inch Quad-HD display with nearly no bezels. It runs on a powerful Snapdragon 835 (same as S8, Note 8, Pixel 2 XL) with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. This phone has dual 13MP cameras on the back and is built like a tank.

With the Essential Phone you're getting an amazingly impressive $700 phone that didn't sell very well, for whatever reason, and now has received so many discounts than it's only $309. Yes, that's $9 over our limit, but skip a Starbucks for a day or two and get this over ANY phone in our list.

    The 2015 ZTE Axon Pro smokes most of these and is selling for under $275

    Look up booting issues with Nexus 5x. Most are crashing with in a year. LG is able to repair the phones because the mother boards are no longer available. –that is why some people are not selling them and they are cheaper! They are great while they work but that is too much money for pay for less than a year!

      Can confirm the booting issue on Nexus 5X after ~1 year and a half of usage

    I’m looking for a new phone for my wife because her Nexus 5X turned itself off yesterday and now won’t get past a bootloop. It is 15 months old and from everything I’m reading online there’s no fix for it.
