Best Android Phones Under $500



Xiaomi Pocophone F1

Xiaomi Pocophone F1

Our next phone on this list is truly amazing at its price point. Xiaomi, the popular Chinese manufacturer, decided to completely destroy the budget or mid-range smartphone market in 2018. 

They basically took the same approach as OnePlus, by making an "affordable flagship" smartphone, then lowered the price to the bottom of the barrel.

The result is the Pocophone F1, a flagship phone that rivals the iPhone Xs, Galaxy S9, OnePlus 6, Galaxy Note 9, LG G7 and more but for only $299. We're not B.S-ing you, either. Unfortunately, the PocoF1 was SOO popular that eventually, the price went up, and they're impossible to find for under $300. 

It's basically a Galaxy S9 mixed with an iPhone X for under $400. You're getting a nearly bezel-free 6.2-inch HD display, a powerful Snapdragon 845 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, dual rear cameras, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and the latest Android software all in one affordable package. 

Plus, the Pocophone comes in several different RAM/Storage configurations making it cost even less, or a little more, and they have several colors to choose from. Give this a try if you're on a budget. We're hopeful for a 2nd model in 2019.
