When you hear the term ‘Budget phone’ you may think of phones from the past such as the old Nokia devices that people referred to as ‘bricks’. However, in 2019 this is not the case. Budget phones are now sleek in design and packed with all the latest innovations.
Smartphone manufacturers have spotted a gap in the market, as customers and businesses grow more annoyed with the ever increasing price of high-end devices.
In this article, we will take you through our top picks for ‘budget’ business smartphones.
Huawei P Smart (2019) – From £19 a month
Huawei P Smart (2019) has loads of features packed into it, we are really impressed with this handset!
Firstly, the P Smart has a huge 6.21-inch display with an all screen design. Similar to what you can find on the latest premium devices, this means no buttons on the front. Although not an OLED screen, you can’t argue with the colours and brightness found when viewing this device.
On the rear of the smartphone you will find a dual lens, AI-powered camera set up. This will make it easy to capture the perfect shot whatever scenario or time of day. Not only on the back of the device is there an impressive camera, on the front there is an incredible 8MP AI-powered camera – Making it easy to capture the perfect selfie!
Battery life will be sure to get you through your working day, coming in at 3400mAh, up from 3000mAh with the 2018 model. Running out of memory won’t be a worry; the P Smart comes with 64GB of internal memory with the option to extend by 512GB with a memory card!
Samsung J4 Plus – From £19 a month
The J4 Plus is a fraction of the price of Samsung’s flagship devices.
Packed into this smartphone is a fast 1.4GHZ processor that lets you perform at speed and you can also find pre-installed business apps – including dual messenger letting you keep personal and work life separate.
Keeping information secure is important in business, especially with GDPR. You will be confident your data will be secure with this J4 Plus, due to Samsung Knox ‘Defence grade security built from the chip up’. Also, facial recognition enables secure and comfortable unlocking.
Motorola G7 Plus – From £19 a month
We are most impressed with the design of this smartphone; it certainly doesn’t look or feel like a budget smartphone. Moto G7 Plus features a glass design with an aluminium frame, like what you can find on premium devices.
A 6.24” all screen HD+ display makes for immersive viewing pleasure. There is plenty of space to perform your daily tasks, and when its time to wind down watch your favourite shows on the ultra-wide display.
Performance is efficient on the G7 Plus, its Motorola’s fastest G series smartphone to date. Never run of out of storage with 64GB with the option to extend further by 512GB. Finally, Motorola has given the G7 Plus a TurboPower charging system, which will give you 12 hours of charge in 15 minutes!
