Sometimes you don’t have to pay your salary to get something cool.
It is believed that really cool things can be found only in the flagship smartphones or – so to speak – in the not-the- cheapest middle-class smartphones .
But this is not always the case. After digging properly, we found very, very cheap smartphones with a large amount of RAM, inexpensive smartphones with NFC, budget smartphones made of glass… in short, let’s go! Now we will reveal all the secrets.
The cheapest smartphone with 6 GB of RAM: Hisense U30
The usual amount of RAM in smartphones priced up to 4 thousand giyven – 2 or 3 GB. If 4 GB, then it’s very cool. But we also found smartphones with 6 GB of RAM, and the most interesting seemed to us Hisense U30: this smartphone periodically pops up in various stores for about 3-4 thousand hryvnia. This volume will come in handy in games, and in general it has a very positive effect on the speed of Android in general and various heavy applications in particular.
Hisense U30 is also an interesting leather back panel – this is, by the way, a unique feature not only for the budget segment, but also for the smartphone market in general. This model also boasts a decent Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset, Full HD screen, 4400 mAh battery, 48 megapixel camera and NFC chip.
The cheapest smartphone with a glass body: Redmi Note 7
Also, of course, the smartphone is not the first freshness, but still cute. One of the main features of the Redmi Note 7 is a glass case, which costs less than 4,000 hryvnias. And not just any, but a very advanced Gorilla Glass 5, which is not always found in new smartphones.
In other respects, everything is also good: a decent Qualcomm chipset, a 48-megapixel camera, a 4000 mAh battery and a screen with Full HD resolution, which, incidentally, in the segment of “up to 4 thousand” is also disappearing. Except that NFC is missing. But in another – a very decent option.
The most practical and inexpensive smartphone with NFC: ZTE Blade A3 2020 NFC
Of course, there are cheaper smartphones with NFC, but we chose the ZTE Blade A3 2020 NFC because of another rare and useful feature – a removable battery. The main thing – do not be mistaken and do not just buy ZTE Blade A3 2020. It has no NFC, and it costs only 500-700 hryvnia cheaper.
Elsewhere in the ZTE Blade A3 2020 NFC everything is pretty boring: 1 GB of RAM, 5.5-inch screen, the simplest cameras.
The cheapest smartphone with stereo speakers: Nokia 2.1
The presence of stereo speakers is a thing that the flagships are proud of, and not all. And here, look, stereo and smartphone for 5,000 rubles. By the way, Nokia 2.2 and 2.3 no longer have stereo speakers. The device “sings” loudly and pleasantly and you can save on the purchase of a Bluetooth speaker.
Other charms of Nokia 2.1 – a 4000 mAh battery and Qualcomm iron (albeit quite simple). Well, a pure version of Android without unnecessary add-ons from the manufacturer.
The cheapest smartphone with fast charging: Redmi 8A
In smartphones in the segment “up to 5 thousand” fast charging is rare, they all mostly support only the usual 10-watt units. Meanwhile, the Redmi 8A can be “friends” with the 18-watt. Yes, it is not included in the delivery, you will have to buy it, but the smartphone itself is compatible with it, so keep that in mind.
The Redmi 8A also offers a Qualcomm chipset, a very large 5000 mAh battery and even a speaker with a self-cleaning system. In short, it is not for nothing that we called him a brilliant ultra-budgetary in the review.
