Our top three bargain budget smartphones
Looking to buy a smartphone outright? On a super-tight budget?
Don’t despair. Because these days, you can get a perfectly good handset with access to loads of apps and a decent camera, for no more than £50.
There’s not a huge amount of choice at that price-point, so to save you searching, we’ve rounded up our top three favourite budget bargains.
Alcatel Pixi 3
The Alcatel Pixi 3 has been designed to be comfortable to use, with a small and lightweight body that will easily fit into your hand, purse or pocket. The 3.5-inch display is big enough for playing games and watching videos, but also small enough for your thumb to slide across. Rear and front-facing cameras are present and correct, and the battery saving mode will help you keep going longer if you find yourself running low on power.
You can buy the Alcatel Pixi 3 from Carphone Warehouse.
ZTE Blade L110
The ZTE Blade L110 is small and lightweight Android smartphone with a 4-inch display. On the back of it there’s a 5MP camera with a flash, so all your photos will be bright and clear. There’s also a selfie-camera on the front.

Archos 40 Power 3G
The Archos 40 Power 3G boast a huge battery life, and will keep you going for a couple of days before you need to recharge it again. It also features a 4-inch display, 5MP camera and dual-SIM functionality – so you can insert two different SIMs and take personal and work calls from the same phone.
