The importance of smartphones in our present-day world can not be overemphasized. As of today, there are folks who make a living with a smartphone. In fact, smartphones are becoming an integral part of our everyday lives.
This is exactly why they do not have to be too expensive. As of today, there are about 14 billion smartphones in the world. According to Statista.com, this number will likely rise to almost 18 billion in 2024.
As we edge towards the end of the year, we have had several requests for a list of 2020 budget/affordable phones.
This device could have easily been in the number one spot if it supports the 5G network. We all know that 5G is not yet in many parts of the world. If you don’t care about 5G, then this should be your first choice.
This smartphone was released in May 2020 and there is a reason why it sold about 6 million units in Q3 2020 alone. With a $146 launch price, this device offers a 5020 mAh battery that supports an 18W fast charge and 9W reverse charging.
It also comes with a MediaTek Helio G85 with MIUI 12 (Android 10) software running. Its 6.53 inch IPS LCD display with the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 is a strong selling point. However, its major selling point is in the camera department. The Redmi Note 9 offers a quad-rear camera setup with a 48MP main sensor.
This is the cheapest smartphone on our list and you can understand why it is here. For the Redmi 9A, it’s all about the price. In fact, the price is about the only attractive thing on this smartphone.
It sells for less than $100 which is not common to see especially from manufacturers that are among the top 5 in the world. Besides its price, another selling point is its huge 5000 mAh battery that supports only 10W charging. It also boasts of up to 128GB of internal storage and up to 6GB of RAM.
Why many may argue the inclusion of this smartphone on the list, the Honor 9A offers some pretty decent features. However, before we go into the details just know that it does not have Google Mobile Services.
Released in April 2020, Honor 9A has an average price of $140. While some stores sell this device for a little more than $130, others have it for a little more than $150. Its triple rear cameras, the large display (6.3 inches), and perhaps its large battery (5000 mAh) are its major selling points.
Realme C3 hit the market in February 2020 and it comes with a 6.5 inch Corning Gorilla Glass display. On the rear, you have a dual-camera setup (12MP + 2MP) while the front has a 5Mp shooter. This device is a proper entry-level smartphone with a huge battery. It uses a 5000 mAh battery like most devices on the list.
