Buying a new smartphone quickly leaves its footprints in your wallet. Although, in terms of Android, the market has plenty of options to offer you that can limit the impact.
Cheap is relative, of course, but there are some Android devices that are a bit more affordable than other options. Here are them for February 2022.
Android: 5 cheap smartphones
It’s hard to say which smartphones exactly fit under the card cheap and which not. In principle, you can get a smartphone for € 100, but it is often not much good. That’s why we look at WANT for Android smartphones that you can buy for under €400. Devices from this category fall, relatively speaking, at the bottom of the market. In terms of price, because in terms of performance, the following five models are impressive:
#1 Samsung Galaxy A12
As a consumer, the Samsung Galaxy A12 actually offers you everything you need. For the recommended retail price of €199, don’t expect too many luxury features, but count on being able to do your thing on Android every day. The smartphone features a 6.5-inch LCD screen, has four different cameras on the back and has a MediaTek processor with 4GB of working memory. In terms of storage capacity, you sacrifice a bit with 32GB, but the 5000mAh battery makes up for that. In any case, this ensures that you can do up to two days on a single charge.

You get a display with 90Hz refresh rate, a quad camera system and a strong processor with 8GB or even 12GB. Thanks to the 4500mAh battery and fast charging, you take the smartphone everywhere with you without worrying about the battery for even a second.
