Can’t Afford the new iPhone X? Fear not, here are some alternative smartphones that are around the budget!

Due to the nature of Apple’s steep price, which is painful, there are some options for iPhone that still satisfy the urge to have an excellent smartphone without spending too much on it. Introducing Android-powered handsets to satisfy “gadget lust,” while leaving change for the bills.


Released last April, but overshadowed by Samsung. LG G6 offers a big screen experience that fits comfortably in hand with a 5.7″ screen, weighing 163g (little thick).

It is a Single Sim or Hybrid Dual Sim. Thus, the user can put Sim in the slot and a microSD to the other slot or put two sims in both slots.

It has a pretty strong battery with a 3300mAh and a dual 13 Megapixel cameras on the back. All of this with 4GB RAM and a latest from Qualcomm, Snapdragon 821 Quad core.

There are choices for the internal ROM 32GB, 64GB and 128GB and expandable up to 256GB via microSD. It’s like a Samsung S8, only cheaper; it’s only $585!

Again, another contender from LG. The LG Q6 is cheaper than LG Q6. For only $253, it offers the same full-screen experience on G6 on a smaller screen.

LG Q6 is a dual Sim handset but still expandable to 256GB via microSD even using the dual sim slot at the same time. It is smaller compared to G6 with a 5.5″ screen.

User can choose between 16GB, 32GB and 64GB with 2GB RAM, 3GB RAM, 64GB RAM respectively. The camera is not dual like G6 but still, has a 13 MP capability.

The processor is downgraded to as expected; it has Qualcomm’ Snapdragon 435 Octa-core. The battery is pretty good too with 3000mAh.


Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

The release date is not definite yet, but it’s a pretty good handset for only $500. This ceramic-built handset is a 5.99″ with an 81% body to screen ratio. Like other smartphones, the user can choose different ROM; these are 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

Unfortunately, Mix 2 is not expandable, but it has 8GB RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core which enough fast for a handset. Along with the useful features, it has 3400mAh battery that can last long.

iPhone SE

At $350, anyone who is Apple product addict can afford this. It’s near a third of the cost of the iPhone X. The handset is petite, which is a nice bonus for people with small hands.
