High-end flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, the Google Pixel 7 Pro and the Oppo Find X5 Pro are packed with the latest specs and gadgets. You often pay for that, though. Still, you don’t have to compromise hugely on quality if you’re looking for a more affordable model. Here are the five best mid-range Android phones.
Best midrange Android smartphones in 2023
#1 Google Pixel 7a
The Google Pixel 7a is a midrange device that feels like a flagship in almost every way. The 6.1″ display has a smooth 90Hz refresh rate with a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels. Under the hood you will find a Google Tensor G2 chip that provides powerful performance.
Thanks to the more-than-awesome primary camera (64MP, f/1.9), rap performance and Google’s excellent software, this is an Android phone that’s hard to beat in the mid-range at the moment. The 4385mAh battery also ensures long-lasting enjoyment.
#2 Samsung Galaxy A54
Samsung has launched another strong midranger with the Galaxy A54. The battery life is strong, with 5000mAh of power. The Exynos chipset also knows how to hold its own for most users, although there are certainly more powerful Android smartphones out there.
Smartphone photographers will enjoy the strong 50MP main camera. Moreover, this device uses a beautiful 6.4″ super-amoled display with 120Hz image refresh rate. And certainly the year-long guarantees in terms of software updates sound good to our ears.

#3 Nothing Phone (1)
The appeal of the Nothing Phone (1) lies mainly in its striking design. The back is partially transparent and contains LEDs that can serve as notification signals. Furthermore, the price-performance ratio is definitely in order, making it one of the best Android smartphones you can find in the mid-range.
With a screen size of 6.55″, this is one of the largest Android phones in this list. The OLED display is also smooth and sharp, with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a pixel density of 402 ppi. Thanks to the 4500mAh battery, you can also get away with the phone for a nice long time.
#4 OnePlus Nord 2T
When it comes to great midrange Android smartphones, the OnePlus Nord 2T definitely belongs in that list. This all-rounder features 80W fast charging and has a slightly faster processor than the standard Nord 2. Battery life is also definitely in order thanks to its 4500mAh.
If you like shooting snapshots with your phone, the Nord 2T is right up your alley with its 50MP main camera. Furthermore, the device features a beautiful amoled display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a pixel density of 409 pixels per inch.

#5 Motorola Edge 40
A cheaper alternative to the Pro version, the Motorola Edge 40 certainly doesn’t fall short of a mid-range Android device. The back of the black model is made of fake leather, so it feels and looks different from what you are used to. There is also a blue version, which is plastic though.
This device has the highest image refresh rate in this list, which is 144Hz. This is especially useful for mobile games where speed and responsiveness matter. Still, there are certainly midrange Android phones with more powerful chipsets to choose from. However, the smartphone is nice and big (6.55″) and the cameras are fine as well.
