Huawei Honor 5X
Another good choice for kids is the Huawei Honor 5X. Huawei is slowly becoming a very popular brand. In fact, they've sold more phones than any other company over the past 12 months, aside from Samsung and Apple. They're the #3 smartphone maker in the world.
The Honor 5X was announced and released in early 2016, but it's still a great phone for only $149. It's just a few dollars more than most on our list, but for arguably an even better experience.
This phone has a full metal design, great cameras, a fingerprint scanner, good sound, fast charging, the latest specs (as of 2016) and more for one low price. You'll get a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p Full HD LCD display, similar in size to the Galaxy S7 Edge or iPhone 7 Plus. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 615 processor with 8-cores and 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and has a micro-SD slot for users to add additional storage for apps, movies and games.
Other specs include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner for enhanced security and mobile payments, a 13 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front camera setup and a big 3,000 mAh battery. It should get an update to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat soon too. This is a premium looking phone for a low price.
