MOTOROLA MOTO E (2ND GENERATION) XT1524 8GB BLACK

Video Review of Motorola Moto E

Samsung Galaxy J5

It’s been a while since Samsung manufactured a really amazing budget handset, but the J5 presents its back on form. It not just has an amazing battery life, but its Super AMOLED screen is also a true battery, supporting it to deliver top, punchy colours that put other LCD-based cell phones to shame.

Best Budget Phone

 The camera performance is not pretty as consistent as the Moto G sensor, but the mobile wonderful display definitely does your shots justice when presenting them to family and friends. The J5 is a sterling effort from Samsung, and an extremely worthy substitute to the Moto 5.

Admittedly, it is not the quickest handset around, as its quad-core 1.2 GHz 410 Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 1.5GB of RAM put its daily performance on par with almost every other mobile phone.

Microsoft Lumia 640

The Microsoft Lumia 640 is the best Windows Phone for those on a budget. Its lovely colours help make it stand out from the crowd, and its battery life is top. If you want a slightly larger budget Windows phone, the Lumia 640 XL is a top substitute.

Nokia Lumia 640

 

Microsoft Lumia 640 is still wonderfully made phone. Calculating 141x72x8.8mm, it’s pleasantly slim and its sharp edges permit you to hold it strongly even when you are using it one-handed. It is a much clever handset than its fully chunky plastic predecessor, and it is easily as best looking as its more costly big brother, the Lumia 735.

Colour exactness was equally remarkable, as earlier Lumia phones tended to fall over there. The Lumia 630, for example, just sheltered 84.9 percent of the RGB colour range, but the Lumia 640 sailed past this with an extremely evenly spread 90.7%, leading to more beautiful images. Colours were perhaps a pretty flat matched to some of the more saturated displays you will find on Android Smartphones, but we were very happy with the full standard of the images.

Vodafone Smart Prime 7

If you believe final years Smart Ultra 6 was a pretty too large for you, then Vodafone Smart Prime 7 is the cost-friendly Smartphone you have been waiting for. Accessible for only €75 on PAYG Vodafone service, this amazing budget mobile phone is a big buy for primary-time mobile phone owners. Its Vodafone pre-installed applications make it incredibly simple to keep track of your data allowance and handle your bill and you can also set it up to get texts and calls through your website browser if you have bad signal at home, making it clear than even to keep up to date with your family and friends.

Vodafone Smart Prime 7

Admittedly, the Smart Phone 7 clever, charcoal looks are not pretty as fun as the Moto E coloured swappable cases and frames, but its understand design actually jobs in its favour. You would not even know it was a Vodafone mobile at primary glance, as the dark, small Vodafone logo blends in subtly with the rest of the handset. Its power keys and textured volume are another top touch, as they not just feel top under your thumb, but are also very simple to find by touch alone. It is little details like this that truly raise this handset above other affordable Smartphone, and makes it feel more high-class than it truly is.

The one bad thing about the Lumia 640 is the Microsoft plan to stick with previous year quad-core 1.2GHz 400 Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset instead of latest 410 Snapdragon. It is not much of a problem in daily use, though, as Window 8.1 is still lot quick enough, with perfect menu transitions and fast loading times.
