When we use the term ‘Budget’ we mean great value and not cheap for the sake of cheapness. For example the iPhone 5s 16Gig selling for around $500 is not a Budget phone it’s a bit of a rip off. Sure if you really wanted a iPhone and is currently the cheapest model and is in run out.
A budget phone is one that is as capable of working and looking like a top range phone with minimal compromise and as good as a mid range phone without the cost. Mid range phones in 2016 are usually superseded top range phone that is a couple of years old so can be budget phone too but that’s dependent on cost. The Budget phone also needs to be able to last 2 years.
All things considered the winner of our Budget phone recommendation is the Oppo R7s. The Oppo R7s is Andriod OS phone and priced around the $450 mark as we write. (Review coming up next) It’s spec list does not match the current top end models but its not a huge gap in spec and hits the mid range without the mid-range pricing. The screen quality and size along with the in the hand feel easily makes it the winner for a budget phone. Other features of the R7S features a metal body, dual sim, nice screen and camera fast Octa-core CPUs large RAM and expandable memory slot.
When the Oppo R7S is combined with a pre-paid SIM specifically an appropriate $30 pre-paid plan, the ones with enough data and unlimited calls and text you’re looking at a 12 month total cost of $810 and over 24 months $1,170 – in additional if you get a plan with roll over benefits there’s plenty of credit left over for a additional music streaming and other apps you can actually buy!
