Moto G5 Plus
The Moto G lineup has made our list of the best cheap Android phones every year since it was first released. Each year it gets a little better too. And while the new 2018 Moto G6 is excellent, it's $240 and slightly over our price point. Instead, we recommend the impressive Moto G5 Plus from late 2017.
The Moto G5 Plus comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, fingerprint scanner, premium metal design and an extremely capable camera considering the price. A 12 Megapixel rear and 5MP front camera setup. You'll also get 32GB of storage, 3GB of RAM and a microSD slot for storage expansion. There's a big 3,000 mAh battery and even a 64GB model with 4GB of RAM if you want to spend a little more money.
This phone is often available for under $190 if you find it on sale. You can also get the older Moto G4 with a 5.5-inch screen and no fingerprint scanner if you're after a bigger screen. Personally, I'd just get the Moto G6 Play from our first slide.
