Cheap smartphone whose biggest advantage is the operating system, Windows Phone 8.1 . With it, the phone runs much smoother than Android competitors at a similar price. Despite a very powerful CPU and a small amount of RAM its speed is quite fast. Its also a small phone, its 4-inch display also makes good use of its dimensions. The Lumia 435 is a good smartphone for browsing the web, checking your e-mail, using social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as watching movies from YouTube. Will perform worse when taking pictures, because the camera is only 2 megapixels. We recommend it especially for the people for whom it will be their first smartphone in life.

Camera: 5 megapixel (rear)
Recording movies: 720p
MicroSD card slot: No
Weight: 142 g
Operating System: Android 4.4 (update to 5.0)

It is true that the Motorola Moto E is now in its successor, which will soon be released on the market, but the first-generation model is still a pretty good alternative to the cheapest Lumina. On board we see Android 4.4 with a future update to version 5.0 Lollipop. So we can expect some upgrades. 200 dual-core Snapdragon processor, however, will not stand out particularly in high performance in games. For the purposes of multimedia you’re better of with the Moto G-2 gene. , that has a larger display, and the CPU has “more steam.” However, for it you will pay more. The Moto E may be what you are looking for in terms of batter life with a capacity of 2000 mAh, which is more than many of its competitors.

LG L Fino (L70+)

top 10 affordable phones 6

Recording movies: 480p
MicroSD card slot: No
Weight: 145 g

The affordable LG L Fino makes a good case mainly for its software. A good example is the function of self-portraits using a hand gesture or facial ad-dons due to its vast option that allows users to adjust lighting when taking “slefies” in the evening. The effect is not as strong as in the case of using regular flash, but the light is softer and natural. LG devices are  also known for its Knock security code, or four fields on the screen, which we have to touch in the correct order to unlock the smartphone. This resembles a normal PIN code, but it is harder to guess as it is based on the clues left by the finger on the glass. The onscreen keyboard is height adjustable, so you can adjust its size to the size of your hand, so that typing is more comfortable.
