Best Android Smartphones Under $300

There are thousands of Android smartphones currently on the market for users to choose. However, for the price of under $300, it’s not easy to find an Android smartphone with the great performance, premium design, and an excellent camera. So, in this post, we will list the excellent mid-range Android devices under $300 that bring a good experience daily.

Huawei P9

The first device in our list is the Huawei P9. It is a 2016 flagship with a high-performance as well as a premium design. Although it has been a year old, the P9 is still a high- end smartphone. It’s pleasant to hold in hand, which proves the success of the Chinese manufacturer.

In terms of specs, the Huawei P9 comes equipped a HiSilicon Kirin 955 chipset along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of flash memory. Especially, its camera can meet even the needs of photographers who want to venture beyond the automatic mode.

As for battery life, it’s quite disappointing as the phone just lasts more than half of a day. Fortunately, with the latest update, its battery usage has been improved.

Honor 7X

Can you believe that a mid-range smartphone that comes with an 18:9 screen, great performance and a metal body for only less than $200? Honor has made it possible.

The Honor 7X comes with a modern design and the display covers the entire front of a metal unibody with a dual rear camera at the back. Powering the phone is the Kirin 659 octa-core SoC, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. The Honor 7X is packed with a 3340mAh battery and currently runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, but the Oreo update is already confirmed.

Moto G5S Plus

It’s a small upgraded version of the Moto G5 Plus, which was released earlier this year for only $230. With the price of $280, the G5S Plus is still an affordable phone, in terms of the extra features.

Comparing to the previous model, with G5S Plus, you will get a bigger and better phone. The phone features a 5.5-inch Full HD display instead of a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, an 8MP selfie camera instead of the 5MP camera; and especially a dual 13MP rear camera instead of a single 12MP camera like G5 Plus.

Honor 6X Pro

If the Honor 7X still costs you much and you want to save extra dollars, the Honor 6X Pro is a great choice as it’s now available for under $200. But you will need to sacrifice a little in performance.

The Honor 6X Pro features a bright 5.5-inch FullHD LCD IPS display, with a HiSilicon Kirin 655 processor inside packed with Mali-T830 GPUs, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable memory.

Everything will run smoothly and there is no lag for the daily use. But the phone still stops at Marshmallow version, and Nougat is not available for the installation.

Although powering the phone is only Snapdragon 435 SoC along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage, it can easily meet your daily use without any worry.
