  1. Great information in your review of phones under $300. If you’re on a tight budget but need a new phone, there are a few solid options that cost $300 or cheaper. Most of the devices are from Motorola, and you may notice there are no Apple products here and that’s because they have no products close to this price range. However, regarding the Motorola models they include the Moto G Stylus and G Power, we also recommend Samsung’s Galaxy A50.

    A budget phone may be less expensive, but I see some of the same options and features many of the more expensive phones have including, fingerprint sensor readers, solid cameras and the elusive headphone jack. I really like the fact you listed each phones specs with pros and cons for each. Makes it very easy to comparison shop. I have always had an iPhone, but after reading your review and the cost of the new iPhone and what I need a phone for, the less expensive options work for me. Thanks for the info.

      Thank you for your detailed comment!

      Yes, sadly in this price range most of the iPhones fall out of this category. Yes, there are other options. But, these is the most popular ones I found in my research.

      Glad you enjoyed the article and it seems it changed your smartphone selection criteria. Please let us know which one you selected. 🙂

  2. Thanks for listing all the smartphone recommendations under $300. I’m looking for one for my working phone, so I don’t really need advanced features. After looking carefully, I think Xiaomi Pro will be the best choice for me. I already heard my friends that used Xiaomi quite satisfied with the performance despite its ‘low cost’. Will buy it soon. Thanks.

  3. This is an excellent, appropriate, comprehensive, and thoroughly cost-effective article. I am especially stunned at how cheap the IPhone SE (2020) is — it’s nice to know that it is both the cheapest and smallest iPhone thereof! All of these phones, as mentioned, are definitely worth the purchase. Although this was never made explicit, I’d argue that the smartphones mentioned are probably better than at least a third of all >$300 smartphones on the market. Again, because of the efficacy of your article, I am seriously thinking about getting an iPhone SE. My only complaint is that RAM was jargon for me — I have no idea what it means, yet I am happy to do my due diligence (i.e. research). Thanks for this awesome post!

      Thank you for your comment!

      Glad you enjoyed the article! 

      You are right by saying that some of these smartphones are actually greater than the premium smartphones out there. However, some premium smartphones still are better while others are not.

      RAM stands for random access memory. RAM gives applications a place to store and access data on a short-term basis. It stores the information on your smartphone actively while using it so that it can be accessed quickly. The higher the size of the RAM memory your smartphone has, the better and faster the smartphone would respond to applications.

      Hope this helps. 🙂

  4. I like the overall layout of your post, everything was properly spaced out making the content easily readable. You definitely gave a wide variety of phones to choose from within the $300 range, and the detailed description of every phone ,added real value. I also liked the use  of the internal link for more information concerning phones and you delivered exactly what you set out to do ,showcase smartphones $300 and under.

  5. I am on a budget. But I also need to have a relatively good smartphone due to my work. It has to take relatively good pictures, take good videos and have enough RAM to support some rather heavy apps. After reading your post, I think my best choice is a Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro. I like the fact that I can now do a well informed purchase. Thank you!
