Best budget smartphones in 2022: TOP 10 rating

Budget smartphones are becoming more popular, as evidenced by the gradual decline in the average price of the phone in the world. The choice of users can be understood, because why overpay for an expensive flagship when most of the functionality can be found in a rather cheap gadget. And the design, autonomy and other parameters of inexpensive phones have become markedly more interesting over the last few years. However, there is also the reverse side of the medal. In the same price range you can find both very worthy models and frankly mediocre phones. The Unite4Buy of the company tried to make for you an objective rating of the best low-cost mobile devices capable of meeting the needs of the vast majority of potential buyers. This TOP 10 will present a number of the best phones of the most famous manufacturers from China, characterized by beauty, autonomy and performance against the background of opponents in the value category. Let's familiarize ourselves with the most current affordable Android smartphones of 2022.

  • Realme 8 is still the leader
  • Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 5G - hit revision
  • Realme 8i is the budget king
  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 4G Global is a steady success
  • Realme 9i - ruthless competition
  • Xiaomi Redmi 10 - still a bestseller?
  • Realme C25Y - better than ever?
  • UMiDIGI A11 Pro Max - in millimeters from success
  • UMiDIGI A11S - beautiful and inexpensive
  • Blackview A90 - hiding flaws
  • 1. Realme 8

    Pros:

    • powerful processor for the price segment Mediatek Helio G95;
    • excellent 6.4-inch FullHD + AMOLED panel;
    • under-display fingerprint scanner;
    • beautiful thoughtful case design;
    • the main photomodules with the main module of 64 megapixels are also capable of shooting in the evening;
    • 128GB ROM and microSD card slot;
    • NFC contactless payments;
    • autonomy at the level of 10+ hours of active screen time

    Cons

    • the body is made of polycarbonate, which is prone to scratches and chips

    Extra features

    • under-display fingerprint scanner;
    • NFC contactless payments

    The gold of the budget smartphone rating goes to Realme 8. This phone is the best in the price segment in terms of the overall balance of all parameters. The design of the device is strict and at the same time extremely stylish. A bezel-less display, a beautiful combination of matte and glossy textures on the back panel, and a small camera unit allow us to call the device one of the most attractive in the value category. Of course, the 16-megapixel selfie camera in the corner of the AMOLED screen and the fingerprint sensor installed under its glass also contribute to the perception of the gadget. The only tangible disadvantage of the appearance of the phablet is the plastic case, which is not only prone to scratches, but also feels inexpensive to the touch. But the 6.4-inch AMOLED display deserves a lot of compliments. An impressive margin of brightness, an amazing FullHD + resolution for a diagonal, and a high-quality oleophobic layer will help you enjoy the content you play. Specifications did not let us down. Although the Mediatek Helio G95 CPU does not support 5G networks, it makes up for the lack of performance and energy efficiency. As a result, the processor, along with 6GB of RAM and the Mali G76 MC4 graphics accelerator, organizes smooth and comfortable gameplay in most modern demanding game projects, and also helps the 5000mAh battery realize its full potential. It only takes two days to charge the battery. 64-, 8- and 2-megapixel photomodules provide very good photo opportunities for organizing daytime and even evening photo shoots. NFC contactless payment is present, interesting for its thoughtful interface and the RealmeUI shell. But there is no stereo sound, which can upset users who are used to it. But the subtle flaws pale in comparison to the abundance of competitive advantages of a great Android smartphone at a modest price.

    2. Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 5G 4/64GB

    Pros:

    • 5000mAh batteries are enough for a couple of days of active use of the gadget;
    • IPS-display will delight you with a bright and rich picture with FullHD + resolution;
    • picture refresh rate at 90Hz;
    • Mediatek Dimensity 810 processor is enough for many games;
    • case design is attractive and stylish;
    • IR port for controlling household appliances;
    • 64GB/128GB ROM and microSD card slot;
    • excellent for the price segment, two main photomodules with a main camera of 50 megapixels;
    • stereo sound;
    • NFC;
    • 5G support

    Cons

    • scratch-prone plastic case;
    • advertising in the MIUI shell

    Extra features

    • picture refresh rate at 90Hz;
    • IR port for controlling household appliances;
    • stereo sound;
    • NFC;
    • 5G support

    Silver rating goes to Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 5G. The smartphone for the most part repeats its predecessor, correcting its minor flaws. So, for example, a full-fledged stereo sound appeared in the phone, which does not upset the volume. Autonomy of 9-10 hours of active screen time, issued by a 5000 mAh battery, is preserved, but the battery itself is now characterized by fast charging at 33 W. The appearance has also undergone changes. The block of photomodules looks more interesting, the screen frames have become a little narrower. The IPS display is slightly brighter at FullHD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. A slight increase in performance visited and technical specifications. The Mediatek Dimensity 810 CPU and the Mali G57MC2 graphics accelerator are a pretty good bundle not only for daily tasks (messengers, browser, watching videos), but also for many games. Only mastodons like Genshin Impact will cause problems and the need to drop graphic presets to low or even minimal values. 64 / 128GB of ROM are expandable with MicroSD cards, so memory shortages can be avoided. The 50- and 8-megapixel cameras are headed by the Samsung JN1, which has already met several times, which tries to ensure the quality of photos not only during the day, but also in the evening. Noise does not completely hide the detail and color reproduction of events. NFC, infrared and support for 5G networks complete the list of advantages of an Android smartphone, but it has not done without annoying shortcomings. Advertising in proprietary MIUI software and scratchy plastic case can reduce enthusiastic emotions from the device, but there is no limit to perfection.

    3. Realme 8i 4/128GB

    Pros:

    • 5000mAh battery is enough for one and a half to two days of active use of the gadget;
    • Mediatek Helio G96 processor and 4GB of RAM guarantee the successful launch of many demanding games;
    • 6.6-inch OGS panel has good brightness and contrast;
    • picture refresh rate of 120 hertz;
    • 64/128GB ROM can be expanded with memory cards;
    • NFC contactless payments;
    • the main cameras are good for daytime and even evening shooting

    Cons

    • plastic case;
    • battery charging could be faster

    Extra features

    • picture refresh rate of 120 hertz;
    • NFC contactless payments

    The third in the ranking was the affordable and at the same time extremely functional Realme 8i. The design of the gadget is far from the last reason for its acquisition. A neat small block of three cameras slightly protrudes from the body, the texture of the back panel shimmers beautifully depending on the angle of the device, the side fingerprint sensor and rather narrow screen bezels only enhance the attractiveness of the exterior. It's a pity that the phone is mostly made of plastic, which loves to collect scratches and chips. The IPS display will surprise you not only with the brightness and clarity of the image, but also with an almost record refresh rate of 120Hz. Specifications are presented by Mediatek Helio G96 CPU and Mali G52MC2 video adapter. With such a processor, you can already count on the successful launch of really demanding games. Although Genshin Impact will have to set the minimum graphics presets, the gameplay will not look like a slide show. Surprisingly, the power efficiency of the chipset is not bad either. You need to charge a 5000mAh battery only once every one and a half days. If we talk about the size of the internal storage, then the standard 64/128GB did not forget to add a microSD card slot. The three main photomodules are headed by the popular 50-megapixel Samsung JN1 sensor for this TOP-10, but the camera software is better optimized in the gadget, so even evening shots are not without an abundance of details. NFC contactless payments are present, but stereo sound is not. However, the only speaker is quite loud, it is unlikely to miss a call. Thus, we have an inexpensive, but at the same time productive gadget with sufficiently high-quality photosensors. Isn't that a reason to consider buying it?

    4. Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 4G Global 4/64GB NFC

    Pros:

    • high-quality four main cameras with a main module of 50 megapixels;
    • 5000mAh battery is enough for 8-10 hours of active screen time;
    • beautiful case design for the price segment;
    • Mediatek Helio G88 processor ensures smooth Android 11 interface and some demanding games;
    • IR port for controlling household appliances;
    • frameless 6.43-inch AMOLED screen does not disappoint with picture quality;
    • 64/128GB ROM and MicroSD card slot;
    • image refresh rate at 90Hz;
    • NFC contactless payments (but not in all versions of the phone);
    • stereo sound

    Cons

    • the design of the MIUI shell is peculiar and the buyer may not like it;
    • PWM effect of the installed AMOLED screen;
    • plastic case;
    • the processor could be more productive within the cost category

    Extra features

    • IR port for controlling household appliances;
    • image refresh rate at 90Hz;
    • NFC contactless payments (but not in all versions of the phone);
    • stereo sound

    Fourth place in the list of the best goes to the recently released Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 4G Global. The appearance of the novelty continues the concept of the tenth generation, which is expressed in a similar camera unit, the same side fingerprint sensor, similar colors. Replace the plastic with glass... The 6.43-inch AMOLED display is great in terms of resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels), brightness and picture refresh rate (90 hertz), but the image can still cause negative due to PWM effect. There is no DC Dimming technology. Specifications copy those of Realme 9i. Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 CPU and Adreno 610 video accelerator are trying their best for lag-free operation of the MIUI shell interface, there are no problems with the chipset and with the browser, messenger. But when the turn of resource-intensive games like Genshin Impact comes up, the processor passes. On the other hand, fans of increased autonomy will be delighted when they see another 8-10 hours of active screen time from a 5000mAh battery. Note that the battery also supports fast charging at 33W. Among all the main cameras, the 50-megapixel Samsung JN1 sensor and the 8-megapixel wide-angle photomodule deserve a positive assessment. They can be used for fruitful daytime shooting with impressive detail shots, and evening photos sometimes come out quite good. The developer did not save on stereo sound, NFC contactless payment (not present in all variations of the device), and infrared. Thus, if you are not confused by some simplifications in terms of the performance of the mobile assistant, then an Android smartphone is recommended for purchase.

    5. Realme 9i 4/128Gb

    Pros:

    • thoughtful case design;
    • bright 6.6-inch display;
    • picture refresh rate of 90 hertz;
    • good for the price category Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor and 4GB of RAM;
    • nice three main cameras (50MP) for daytime shooting;
    • 5000mAh battery will give more than 9-10 hours of active screen time;
    • 64/128GB ROM and MicroSD card slot;
    • stereo sound;
    • NFC contactless payments

    Cons

    • the plastic of the case is still easily scratched;
    • processor could be more powerful

    Extra features

    • picture refresh rate of 90 hertz;
    • stereo sound;
    • NFC contactless payments

    Opening the top five is the latest Realme 9i, which is able to please the market audience for a huge number of reasons. Firstly, the design of the device resembles that of the manufacturer's flagships due to a similar body shape, a similar camera block, and familiar colors. The back panel, although made of plastic, feels pleasant in the palm of your hand thanks to the original texture. The side fingerprint scanner and small display bezels with a selfie camera in the corner (16MP) also have a positive effect on the exterior. The installed IPS-screen does not lag behind the decisions of opponents both in terms of image resolution (FullHD +) and its smoothness (refresh rate of 90 hertz). The brightness of the OGS display does not fail either. The technical characteristics are energy efficient, however, in terms of performance, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 and the Adreno 610 video adapter are not surprising and actually duplicate the previously released 665th chip. Thus, undemanding games function without problems, but Genshin Impact will have to be left for more productive Android smartphones. A separate microSD card slot is an excellent addition to 64/128GB of ROM, hundreds of photos and videos created by 50 and 2-megapixel photomodules will find a place on such internal storage. The main sensor of the Samsung JN1 tries to create good pictures even in the evening, even if the results are far from ideal. Thanks to the economical processor, the 5000mAh battery will require you to search for outlets only after a couple of days, the battery is also characterized by fast charging at 33W. Stereo speakers and NFC contactless payments are other reasons to take a closer look at not the most powerful, but very balanced device.

    6. Xiaomi Redmi 10 4/64GB

    Pros:

    • nice design of the device;
    • good frameless high-resolution screen;
    • Mediatek Helio G88 processor can run many demanding games;
    • support for NFC (contactless payments);
    • separate slot for microSD cards;
    • decent main cameras for the price segment;
    • IR port for controlling household appliances;
    • picture refresh rate in 90HZ;
    • stereo sound

    Cons

    • body materials can quickly lose their appearance;
    • the MIUI interface is replete with ads and sometimes lacks responsiveness;
    • Screen brightness may not be bright enough for direct sunlight

    Extra features

    • support for NFC (contactless payments);
    • IR port for controlling household appliances;
    • stereo sound;
    • image refresh rate in 90Hz

    The sixth position goes to the already classic Xiaomi Redmi 10. Note that the version with NFC contactless payments is recommended for purchase, because it costs a little more, and its functionality is important for millions of users. The appearance of the gadget is beautiful for the low-mid price segment. The exterior includes a technological block of four cameras, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and a screen without wide frames with an 8-megapixel front camera at the top. It's a pity that the developer simplified the case materials (plastic) to reduce the cost. The 6.5-inch IPS screen, although not the brightest in the world, tries to compensate for this lack of contrast, color reproduction and picture clarity at FullHD + resolution. Not forgotten by the manufacturer and the refresh rate of 90Hz. Specifications will not be a cause for disappointment. The Mediatek Helio G88 CPU and the MaliG52MC2 video accelerator, although far from the title of gaming, still cope with many projects like PUBG or World Of Tanks, and also organize the responsiveness and smoothness of the MIUI proprietary shell. The fact that 64/128GB of ROM is easily expandable with MicroSD cards is also pleasant, without the need to sacrifice one of the SIM cards. Of the four main photomodules, the main 50-megapixel Samsung JN1 sensor and the 8-megapixel wide-angle lens will really come in handy. They make excellent daytime shots, leaving little room for evening shooting. True, noise cannot be avoided. Stereo sound, up to a dozen hours of active screen time from a 5000 mAh battery combine with the advantages listed above to create a great budget Android smartphone. And advertising in the software, polycarbonate back panel and other minor flaws are not able to negatively affect the situation.

    7. Realme C25Y 4/64GB

    Pros:

    • not devoid of attractive features smartphone design;
    • bright and contrasting 6.5-inch OGS-screen;
    • Unisoc Tiger T610 processor and 4GB of RAM will provide an opportunity to get acquainted with many games;
    • the main triple camera for fruitful daytime shooting;
    • 5000mAh battery guarantees about 8-9 hours of active screen time;
    • 128GB ROM and microSD card slot;
    • NFC contactless payments

    Cons

    • low resolution IPS display;
    • plastic body with a number of outdated design aspects

    Extra features

    • contactless payments NFC

    Pleasant in all respects, Realme C25Y also appeared in the rating in question. The appearance of the novelty is not the most relevant due to the form factor of the 8-megapixel selfie camera and the fingerprint sensor located on the rear panel, however, the small screen frames for the price category, the corrugated surface of the case and the nice triple camera block allow the exterior to still leave a positive impression. A similar situation is with the 6.5-inch IPS panel. In terms of brightness and contrast, it is even better than the displays of the previously reviewed phones, but the HD + resolution does not allow the OGS screen to be given an excellent rating. But the performance of the Mali G52-MC2 video adapter increases from such a solution. As a result, the Unisoc Tiger T610 CPU, together with 4GB of RAM, copes with PUBG and even makes it possible to try Genshin Impact graphics on the minimum presets. But you should not expect a complete absence of lags. The ROM size has reached 128GB, so MicroSD cards are most likely not useful. The 50- and 2-megapixel main photo modules, topped by the latest Samsung JN1, do not fall into the dirt in front of rather complex shooting scenarios. Even though the evening shots are spoiled by noise, they are not ashamed to be posted on Instagram or VK, where the increased quality of photo content is not needed. The energy-efficient processor and OGS-display bring the autonomy received from the 5000mAh battery to 9-10 hours of active screen time. The device is also not without NFC contactless payments. It is thanks to the scattering of competitive advantages that the device was able to climb so high in the TOP-10.

    8. UMIDIGI A11 Pro Max 4/128GB

    Pros:

    • excellent battery capacity of 5150mAh for 10-12 hours of active screen time;
    • Mediatek Helio G80 processor is suitable for running most demanding games;
    • the main triple camera at 48MP copes with daytime and partly evening shooting;
    • modern case design that was made of class;
    • The 6.85-inch IPS display is not without brightness and contrast;
    • 128GB ROM and microSD card slot;
    • laser thermometer

    Cons

    • cameras are still not ideal when shooting at night;
    • no NFC contactless payments;
    • minor flaws in the software (app crashes, lack of translation in places)

    Extra features

    • laser thermometer

    The UMiDIGI A11 Pro Max was also on the list of the best, capturing the eyes with a well-designed appearance. There are also reasonable screen bezels, and a selfie camera in the display itself (24MP) loved by millions of people, and a fingerprint sensor located on the side. The rich colors of the glass cover are pleasing to the eye, as is the block of three photomodules. The IPS screen, which has grown to 6.8 inches, has a FullHD + resolution, displays a clear and bright picture, which lacks only an increased refresh rate. The processor of the device is the popular Mediatek Helio G80, which works in conjunction with 4GB (or 8GB depending on the version) of RAM. If a mobile assistant is needed directly for calls, browsers or social networks, then the CPU will cause only positive emotions. It is also good in not the most demanding 3D games like World Of Tanks Blitz. But for the smoothness of Genshin Impact, you will have to turn to a different price category. But there is really a lot of internal storage, it is represented by 128GB of ROM and a microSD card slot. Three main cameras, led by a 48-megapixel sensor, provide a wider range of photo opportunities in comparison with the previously reviewed devices. Now you can try creating evening shots for Instagram. A capacious 5150mAh battery will require charging every two days with moderate use of the phablet. This is where the list of pros ends. Unfortunately, NFC contactless payment and stereo speakers are not included in it, however, even without them, the gadget looks quite competitive.

    9. UMIDIGI A11S 4/64Gb

    Pros:

    • modern case design with a glass back panel;
    • energy-efficient and at the same time not the weakest Unisoc Tiger T310 processor with 4GB of RAM;
    • 64GB ROM and microSD card slot;
    • not the worst three main cameras for the price segment;
    • high-quality 6.53-inch OGS screen with good brightness;
    • autonomy at the level of 8-9 hours of active screen time;
    • laser thermometer

    Cons

    • evening photos are not good for cameras;
    • no NFC contactless payments;
    • low screen resolution

    Extra features

    • laser thermometer

    UMiDIGI A11S climbed to the ninth line in the TOP 10 budget smartphones. The phone differs from other opponents, first of all, by its thoughtful design. It is difficult to find a stylish glass panel with a modern design of three photomodules in the price segment. At the same time, in order to preserve ergonomics, the developer moved the fingerprint sensor to the side face, without chasing the excessive diagonal of the display. The almost frameless IPS screen of 6.53 inches, although it does not set records for image clarity at a resolution of 1600x720 pixels, compensates for the shortcomings with a margin of brightness and good contrast. In general, the selection of technical characteristics is also successful. CPU Unisoc Tiger T310 works together with 4GB of RAM and PowerVR GT7200 graphics core, tries not to upset the functioning of Android 11 and undemanding tasks, many 3D games are available to the buyer, with the exception of Fortnite, Genshin Impact and similar projects. However, devices that cost twice as much do not always cope with them. 16-, 8- and 5-megapixel cameras are not afraid of daytime shooting, the color reproduction of events is preserved, albeit without an abundance of details. Of course, the evening shots are no longer so beautiful due to the appearance of noise. But autonomy cannot be criticized. The 5150mAh battery allows you not to think about sockets, power banks and similar things for a couple of days. Unfortunately, there are no contactless payments or stereo sound in the gadget, which is partly due to its price tag. Asking for more for such a democratic amount of money is simply wrong.

    10. Blackview A90

    Pros:

    • the beauty of a stylish and ergonomic body;
    • bright 6.39-inch OGS screen;
    • a good processor Mediatek Helio P60, capable of running many modern games;
    • high-quality for the price segment main 13-megapixel camera with two auxiliary sensors;
    • capacious 4250mAh battery (8 hours of active screen time);
    • 64GB of ROM plus a microSD card slot, so rare in the price range to recommend for purchase.

    Cons

    • the case is made of inexpensive plastic;
    • low screen resolution;
    • the phone is not at all suitable for evening shooting;
    • no NFC contactless payments

    The ranking of the best budget smartphones opens with the recent Blackview A90. This phone has made quite a serious step forward in terms of functionality and design. The fingerprint sensor moved to the side, a nice gradient back panel and a modern triple camera unit look more than interesting and competitive. Evidence of the professionalism of the designers and the neat lens of the 8-megapixel selfie camera. Of course, the distinctive features of a low-priced Android smartphone are also visible. So, the case mostly consists of inexpensive plastic, and the wide bezels of the screen are hard to miss. The 6.39-inch IPS screen combines both a good margin of brightness and a low HD+ resolution. The picture is visible on a sunny day, although it looks faded, but small fonts sometimes seem blurry. Specifications cause positive emotions. The Mediatek Helio P60 CPU, 4GB of RAM and the Mali G72MP3 video accelerator provide excellent smoothness of the Android 11 interface, most applications start instantly, scrolling occurs without noticeable lags. Surprisingly, there are no savings on the size of the internal memory either. 64GB of ROM will be enough for many users, for the rest there is a slot for MicroSD cards. According to the photo opportunities, the revolution did not happen. Don't let the once flagship 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 sensor confuse you, because due to cheap optics and mediocre software, it is only capable of daytime shooting of static objects. Auxiliary 2 and 0.3-megapixel photomodules are located behind only for beauty. But the 4250mAh battery does not upset, usually providing about eight hours of active screen time. As a result, all the pros and cons listed above form a far from ideal, but still relevant and balanced gadget, which is not a shame to recommend for purchase.

    The best performance in the Antutu benchmark and modern games is demonstrated by the Mediatek Dimensity 810 (Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro 5G), Helio G95 (Realme 8) and Helio G96 (Realme 8i) processors. With these chipsets, it is possible to hope for a successful launch of any modern games, even if the graphics settings are sometimes close to the minimum.
