So let’s play according to that budget of yours in no particular order actually.

1. Infinix Zero 5 Pro

If anyone asks me, I will recommend Infinix Zero 5 Pro for them as the best quality smartphone under low and competitive budget. The Phone if it was to be compared, is almost performing same like iPhone XR, either way, different in an operating system. 

With Helio P25 Optical Zoom, 128GB ROM, 6GB RAM, 5.98″FHD LTPS(2.5D) and 4350mAh battery life, you can perform any activity with the gadget taking advantage of the camera too which has about 13MP. The battery lasts even on consistent usage for at least a day plus. Where to buy Infinix Zero 5 Pro? Price starting from N125,000

2. Moto G6 play

This is the very budget smartphone from the line of the 2018 Moto G series, which is the way to go if you are on the budget route. The Moto g6 play dorns the 5.7-inch screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio which should do justice to display given its price range with a whopping 4000mah battery juice to stay alive.

Starting at $169 the G6 play is forfeiting some features given the price point, following some corners being cut on the part of the camera. If you know that you are in for not so many snapshots with a decent processor, this is the device for you.

3. Moto G6

This is a more superior sibling to the G6 play on the Moto G series which means you are supposed to get some add-ons which don’t mean it’s out of the budget range. Fortunately, on this device, we have a smooth near stock version of the android Oreo while still being affordable.

The Moto G6 is housing a dual camera that could give the much trendy portrait mode found in the high end devices like the one plus 6 wow it does sound like a budget like it is termed even it starts at a cheap £249.

Released in May 2018, the Moto G6 has a slice on its battery with a 3000mah even if it’s got 4GB ram with a decent Snapdragon 450 to keep things going smoothly. The phone has got 5.7-inch LCD display which has got a 3D glass back with rounded edges for easy handling and beautification. Available in several colours, it exists in Deep Indigo, Silver, and Blush blue shade colour options, the device has got the very recent USB C port.

4. Huawei Honor 10

This device is very difficult to overlook if you are in for value in the budget cadre which means this Honor 10 is a bold statement as against the high price witnessed in the flagship region. The device first appeals with its atheistic design which sets the phone apart from the rest on this list, trust me you would be in for a surprise.

The honor 10 houses a5.84inch FHD screen that is powered by a Kirin 970 chipset that would drive serious 3D gaming without issues and also an AI mode that could be auto optimises the pictures taken on the smartphone.

Well, something must be taken off way to make it a budget smartphone, you must be thinking what is; the dual camera on the Honor 10 doesn’t have the Leica branding on the camera if that really important to you. Also, there is no micro SD support. Starting at $399.9 the smartphone offering a 3400mah battery which is also a comprise form me on the device.

Arming the device is a dual camera of 12mp-20mp and a 64 expandable internal storage. Now, this smartphone is what you pay for but without the NFC functionality.

Maybe it was popular for its name or its function, the Pocofone is an all-rounder of what a budget smartphone should be in any ramification but does exist with its cons nonetheless. The pocophone is an impression of the first OnePlus One which arguably is the flagship breaker obviously in 2018.

The device boasts with of a 6.12 inch full HD IPS display, a flagship Snapdragon processor which is found in the Note 9, OnePlus 6 making it a wonderful bargain following the price of the device.

8. NOKIA 5.1

You read right, Nokia made the list just for what it represents cum value its offering with a metal unibody to give it a premium finish. The 5.2inch crisp display could be passed for an expensive device or flagship offering, but you are still in for more at what this device could offer.

Arguably the device is a beautiful looking device that could set itself apart due to its trimmer look compared to its predecessor as its fashioned from just one block of aluminium. The Nokia 5.1 has a front 8 megapixel camera and 16MP front-facing camera to give the best shot with a 2970mah non removable battery to keep up for the daily activities.

Being a budget smartphone, the user experience has a lot of smoothness to its credit since it is powered by a more performance oriented MediaTek helio P18 octa-core chipset. Running on the stock form of Android, this means you don’t suffer from bloatware and you get security update for three years.

9. Honor 9 lite

Actually, 2108 gave birth to a lot of midrange flagship performing device and Huawei the brainchild behind the honor brand is keeping things a whole lot busy. The Honor 9 lite is worth the thought since it has a whooping four camera set up for the rear and front that has a 13 and 2 megapixel respe1ctively to give superb snapshots.

As expected the device is powered by an octa-core Kirin 659 chipset with an 18:9 display and a 2.5D rear glass back…. What you get is a premium finish that comes in three beautiful colors of sapphire blue, midnight black and the glacier blue. Still allowing for the micro SD card, the device under the hood is powered by 3GB of RAM and 3000mah battery along to keep things alive and running. Priced at a sterling $200, it turns out to become a wonderful bargain should you decide to take on the honor brand, or basically the honor 9 lite.

10. Alcatel 1X

The only smartphone with a suede to do the covering at the back on the list is powered by MediaTek MT6739 chipset which is good and very fit fitting for a midrange. Maintaining a form factor, the Alcatel 1x is fluid while still maintaining huge bezels that no one wants to see and a screen that is worth its price.

The android system is built on Oreo Go which was created by android for cheap devices, so it could become accessible to all and sundry. This doesn’t mean some functions are cut out, but the regular android functions still come out well for the very low budget users. As cheap as this device gets, it target was well imagined, the smartphone has a 1GB of RAM and a 16 GB of storage space to keep things up in storage.

To the display, the Alcatel 1 X has got a 5.3 inches with a 16:9 aspect ratio which powered by 2460mah of battery. Not very much of fancy on this device, but it still got its camera to do the snap shot; an 8mp rear facing and 5 front selfie snapper


This segment gets thicker and busier with the entry of the Asus Zenfone Max pro M1 that is a value for money in the budget arena. The device gets more interesting with the processor that is crammed into this device and a mammoth 5000MAH of a battery which is huge and covered in the polycarbonate body to go with

A display of 5.99 inch of display with optional variants in a storage of 3GB 32GB storage or a 4GB 64GB storage and a 6GB 64 GB storage for you to make a choice from. In terms of software, the phone runs an Android Oreo 9.1 from the box for smooth sailing, whereas in the screen estate, an IPS LCD screen is mounted for good visuals. The camera setup is fitted with a 13MP and a 5MP to get a dual setup coupled with a front camera with an 8MP for selfie shot


Not the regular 6.0 inch screen we get in 2018, the smartphone has aa lot to offer given what is built under this device which does the job appropriately. Running a capable 712snapdrgon processor chipset at 1.5ghz, the device comes in with a 3GB of RAM given an aluminium build for a great finish and still for a great price.

Worthy of note is that accessible fingerprint on this device and a quick charge that gives a about 50 per cent within just 30 minutes of charge. On this ZTE AXON MINI is kept a 16 Megapixel to snap on the rear and an expandable SD card slot of about 128GB.

If you are out in the market for that premium feel on the smartphone, the ZTE Axon Mini is a loaded option for you. It starts at $280

13. NOKIA 3.1

Released in May 2018, this is a very strong player on the budget secti9on that makes it a strong consideration within it’s a class. The Nokia 3.1 comes in polycarbonate body that is quite stronger than what is gotten from the glass covered body found in the top flight that comes with smudges and fingerprints on them very easily.

Running on the bloatware-free Android one, the screen estate on the device is 5.2 inches wide producing a 1440 ×720 resolution for display, that means not much is expected from this department. Jumping directly into the battery pack for this smartphone, what you pay is actually what you get, on-board the Nokia 3.1 we have the 2990Mah for battery life. For the price, we are not very surprised about the MediaTek 6760 chipset which obviously is far from producing a superlative performance. Crammed under is the 2GB of RAM which performs sluggishly some of the times during use which is likely.

So if, you ask me it’s for those that would use a smartphone front many functions apart from basic and WhatsApp. Don’t expect a miracle at this price point…..its price for us is what we actually got. The device starts at $140


Power might just be what you need for a Zoom like it’s the case in the Asus Zenfone 3 which means you are up for plenty of battery life. The 5.5inch smartphone might be chosen for some persons who are very interested in power efficiency, wherein it’s being claimed the device could last for up to 2days after a single charge.

Apart from winning a lot of awards from the battery section, the device under the hood packs the Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor while its 32GB ROM can be expanded to a whopping 2TB. What’s more, you get a 3GB RAM for running processes to keep things alive and adding a 4k UHD recording ability. Very many things to admire about this device, the camera which is of 12mp ability with an outstanding picture quality that comes to life on a very vibrant true display that makes this device the monster I choose to call it. Price start from $150. Get it on Amazon


Though this device is playing exclusivity to just Verizon, if it’s worth it, there are ways around it even it sounds like discouragement from the onset. My honeypot is the is the AMOLED screen on the device which is a found on the premium devices and an expected battery life of 3000mah to keep the smartphone alive.

The screen department isn’t what you naturally get from the regular devices released late 2018 which means it is less than the 6.0inches but actually 5.1 inches that is less conventional. the memory is quite expandable to a huge 512GB that uses the sim 2 slot which is powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset.

This is the flagship in a cute body…yes exactly my take for this device, so if you are into decent looking and cute budget device this is a start for you. Get it on Amazon

16. Realme 2 pro

This device of the Oppo family, like what you have when you say Poco is to Xiaomi, but very good looking I must confess, like it or not this device comes with the drop like notch which means it’s very recent. This is the smartphone that brings you closer to what is the trend for devices in 2018 but it handsomely created for the midrange section.

On this device, you get 4k recording and a 16mp recoding running on a Qualcomm 660 chipset which is capable of running things smoothly. With a 6.3 screen LCD display, there is plenty to expect at this price range which of course is something to cheer. The Realme 2 pro hosts a dual camera at the rear and a single camera for the front section with an expandable storage of 256GB dedicated memory slot. The device is available in different colours like black, deep blue and the light blue variant. For power, the device is powered by a 3500mah battery that should be well enough to keep them up for use and also as a daily driver. Price start from $250. Get it on Amazon


These devices stated are the good pick from the budget section for those who have got intentions, they get the job done depending on what they are proposed for. 2018 have been an interesting year from the look of the list which means its customer healthy, just go and make the right pick.
