New Budget Friendly Smartphones – Global TV TechTalk July 15, 2015

Alcatel Idol 3


Smartphones are an important investment that we don’t always get much choice in since it’s wrapped into a plan. Most of the time though it comes with a plan that we pay every month for one or two years so that we don’t feel like we suddenly have a hole in the wallet. Today there are some great budget alternatives such as Idol 3 by Alcatel that you can purchase without a mobile contract. It is a fully reversible phone that offers you the best user experience however you hold it.

Bell: $349.95

Telus: $360

Videotron: $349.95


Sony Xperia M4 Aqua


Sony launched a fully waterproof and dust proof budget smartphone that you won’t ever be afraid to drop into the water again. On the contrary it’s almost highly recommended so that you can take advantage of Xperia M4 Aqua’s camera’s features to take the most amazing shoots. Now, there’s no reason to miss out on spontaneous plans just because your phone is dead, the phone has an exceptional battery life that lasts up to 2-days.

Price: $300


Microsoft Lumia 435


It appears that most of our time we spend on mobile is limited to only 5 apps. If you keep on spending hundreds dollars for your smartphone but feel like you don’t need that many features because you end up just sending texts and making calls- this phone was made for you! Microsoft Lumia 435 is a cheap Windows smartphone perfect for regular use. This windows phone is colorful and built to last.

Price: $120


Que 5.0 Unlocked Smartphone


It’s very unusual to be able to get a smartphone for less than $200 but Que accepted the challenge and launched a range of really cheap phones. Basically even though the quality of your photos won’t be as good as a LG G4 Que 5.0, it enables you to do pretty much everything a regular smartphone can do.

Price: $170
