However, with a reasonable budget, you still can get a decent phone that does not look like it was run over by a city bus. The phone you get will have reasonable processing power with single or dual-core processors. The camera power may not be to the standards of Sony Xperia Z1, but you will still enjoy quality snapping as well as a front-facing camera. You will still have unlimited access to app stores like Google play for your apps and games among other things.
The HTC Desire 500 packs style and elegance and has been ranked as the best looking cheap phone. This midrange phone runs on Android 4.1.2 which may a little old for some people. However, this is compensated for by the HTC’s slick Sense UI 5.0 with Blinkfeed. The processor is a snapdragon 200 quad-core with a 1GB RAM. This offers satisfactory processor speed. The camera of this phone does not disappoint either. It is an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash and autofocus. The 4.3inch 480 by 800 screen is bright and vivid.

It has a 480 by 800 3.8 inch LED screen that offer impeccable quality display. The Windows 8 operating system delivers superior performance. The phone has a 1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU with provides satisfactory overall performance. Simply put the phone is cute, stylish, and has impressive performance. On top of it all, the phone is remarkably easy to use.
The best overall affordable phone is the Motorola Moto G. One of the downsides of the phone is that this phone is neither slim nor light. At 143g and with a thickness of 11.6mm, the phone is clearly not the slimmest. That, nonetheless, does not translate to that it is an ugly phone. It has a superb 4.5-inch 720p IPS screen. One of its other downsides is that the phone does not have micro SD card slot. This is, however, compensated for by a large internal storage capability of either 8GB or 16GB. Running on 4.3 Jelly Bean and with a RAM of 1GB, this is an amazingly fast cheap phone.
