Smartphone Buyers Guide: Best Value For Money SmartPhones 100$-200$

Elephone-P9000-Helio-P10-765x573

August has been a busy month in Chinese smartphone market, talking about new model launches. There have been new models like Redmi Pro (end of July) and Redmi Note 4 from Xiaomi, M3E from Meizu, Cool1 from LeEco and Coolpad marriage,┬áQ5 series from 360. More will come before the end of this year including some flagship models. There is a big war between phone makers to catch a piece of this billion $’s cake.

As the second version of our “Smartphone Buyers Guide” today we will take a look for the models that cost between 100$-200$. There are so many choices when we include old models from last year too, I mean models with old chipsets that has been updated with new series. So they will be eliminated, otherwise this list won’t end ­čÖé As an example, I didn’t include Meizu M2 Note or Meizu Metal in this guide, even though both are still very good phones under 200$,┬ábecause there is M3 Note out and you can buy it under 200$ too. There will be some exceptions, of course, if it’s a bargain.

Speaking of Meizu, let’s start with this makers phones under 200$.

6000 Series Aluminum alloy, means you have a very solid phone in your hands. Meizu always been about “quality”and last year even its budget phones carried production quality to next step. M3 Note, powered by the octa-core 1.8GHz MediaTek Helio P10 chipset is capable of every daily needs of yours, plus more. 4100mAh battery power will be enough for heavy use whole day, for regular use 2 days. When it comes to fingerprint I’m a fan of front placement, simple idea, I want to unlock my phone to see my notifications when it’s on the desk with a simple touch, don’t want to bother to grab it and place my finger to the back of the phone. Meizu’s mTouch is one of the best in the market, combining 3 key functions in 1 and adding fingerprint sensor to it. As we know from the reviews, both cameras of M3 Note do the job for this price range, i mean they are good enough for most of users. Maybe not as good as Oppo R9 with the same chipset inside (Helio P10), but you get Meizu M3 Note for the half price.

Yes, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 will be on the market soon, but Redmi Note 3 Pro with Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 Chipset will still be most users first choice in this price range. Especially for gamers, because of the Adreno 510 GPU of course. For 5.5″ inch screen size lovers, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note series has always been very popular because of its┬áprice/performance ratio. Note 3’s 4000mAh battery will help at least one day under heavy use, more with regular use. Phone has a metal back, but its not unibody, you can take out the back metal cover, still feels nice in hand with matte finish. Has a decent 16MP camera with PDAF supporting 0.1s ultra-fast focusing + two-tone flash light. Finger print sensor is on the back that unlocks your phone in 0.3s. ┬áRedmi Note 4 will come with Helio X20 CPU as we all know, so┬áQualcomm fans probably won’t change their Redmi Note’s for a while.

5″ Redmi 3 series was updated with a new chipset recently, powered by a Snapdragon 430 CPU and the model name became Redmi 3s. Snapdragon 430 brings us Adreno 505 GPU with. These specs made Redmi 3s the most powerful 5″ phone in this price range, made it the little brother of Redmi Note 3 Pro. Redmi 3s has an even bigger battery with 4100mAh capacity and having only HD 5″ screen, this little brother will last longer. With that battery, the Redmi 3s┬áweighs only 144 gm, which is good. 13MP/5MP front and rear cameras and fingerprint sensor sounds as the minimum standards in phone industry lately.

Redmi 4 is behind the corner : http://www.gizmochina.com/2016/09/03/xiaomi-redmi-4-appears-tenaa-fhd-3gb-ram-699-yuan-105-price/

A BIG surprise in every aspect ! You want┬áthe biggest screen size in a smartphone ? And you also want the biggest battery with it ? 6.44 inch + 4850mAh battery for under 200$. Biggest brother of the family, comes with same CPU of Redmi Note 3 Pro, Snapdragon 650, but with less Ram, 2GB for this edition. 16GB for ROM option is not very important because Mi Max has a SD card slot. If you spend┬ámuch of your time looking on a mobile phone’s screen during the day, especially for media, biggest screen powered with the┬ábiggest battery for just 183$, I think this phone is ┬áa bargain for its┬áspecs.

MediaTek Helio X20 (and X25 with more CPU speed) series started to power many phones.┬áIt’s a flagship-grade CPU for sure, not the fastest yes, but little under 100K Antutu score is still something. Heli0 x20 is a deca/10-core CPU to remind you. GPU is also powerful enough, a quad-core Mali T880. This combination is better than any on the market, except flagships like Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8890 from Samsung, but hey, we are talking about under 200$ phones here, remember.

Le 2 comes in a metal unibody, very well crafted. The screen is 5.5″ in-cell full HD IPS panel. The phone has no 3.5mm headphone jack, first in the market, you get audio from Type-C port in Hi-Fi format. Don’t worry, there is adaptor included in the box, if you still want to use your beloved headphones.

Back Camera is 16MP, supporting 4K video shooting mode, front is 8MP, both sensors are from OmniVision. They give you surprisingly good results for this price range. Only downside may be, for some, battery capacity is 3000mAh. So if you want the most powerful phone in this price range and flagship grade build quality, LeEco Le 2 is your choice.

PS: I need to say something about the colors. I’m enough of these gold, rose gold, grey or white, missed all black phones like in the old days. Matte black would be amazing on Le 2 and I think, most of you will agree. Hopefully, new models will have this options :┬áhttp://www.gizmochina.com/2016/08/19/black-leeco-le-2s-back-cover-looped-antenna/

The whole success story of LeEco (LeTV) began with this model X600. Dont need finger print ? Is 16GB enough for you (for me its still enough) ? Then just grab this hero for about 117-118$ on some online stores, this will be a real bargain for you. Coming with octa-core 2.0 GHz Helio X10 chipset and 3GB of Ram has a very good configuration for this price. Screen is from Sharp, very vivid, design is very attractive even, for my taste its better looking then X500 or X620, has a style for sure. Sound output is one of the best and 3.5mm headphone jack is present. Helio X10 is last years first example of MediaTek’s Helio series and if we should compare it this years P10, X10 is still better when it comes to performance, except energy efficiency of course:

 

  • Helio P10: Single-core ÔÇô 882, Multi-core ÔÇô 3371
  • Helio X10: Single-core ÔÇô 905, Multi-core ÔÇô 5154

An interesting model from IT giant Asus. Does not have a finger print sensor but has a whole screen to scan your hand-print ! “Equipped with high-tech touch chip owned high capacity of information operation” says Asus. “A totally new way to protect your information”. X500 has a very attractive design and good screen to body ratio with aerial aluminum alloy. Very good cameras indeed for this price, 13MP rear and 8MP f/2.0 aperture front. Promises good low light performance. CPU is last year’s first edition octa-core from Qualcomm, Snapdragon 615, don’t expect much raw performance but it is energy efficient for sure. 3GB Ram is more than enough, you can put a SD card in it so 16GB of Rom is not a big issue. Phone is not unibody so you can change the 3030mAh battery with your second one, many still prefer this solution. 5.5″ full HD screen with 3rd gen Gorilla protection.

The Kirin 650,┬á16nm FinFET manufacturing process (less chip size = less heat), new midrange class octa-core CPU from Huawei’s own kitchen. Clocked at 2.0GHz and holding┬áMali-T830 MP2 GPU in it, promises many things on paper. ┬áThe iPhone 5SE killer (who cares?) Honor 5C uses this┬áarchitecture.

I’m not a fan of Huawei phones, because they always cost more against what they give back to customers in the name of performance.

Honor 5C comes with 5.2″ FHD screen, may be the optimum┬ásize┬áfor many smartphone users. Does not have any protection glass. Cameras are ok on paper, build quality is: metal back on plastic body. Finger print is on the back. Onscreen keys, reduces screen size to 5″ at home screen. You get a decent performance for this price that’s for sure, the rest is kind of a taste.

Kirin 650 loses to Helio X10

Product size: 149mm x 75.7mm x 8.3mm, 140gr

Editor’s Choice (if you can find one to buy). ┬áMediaTek X20 is a very good chipset, like I stated before. Supporting it with 4GB of Ram is very future based (talking about Android versions). Plus┬á IP67 dustproof and waterproof and a very good design (149mm for a 5.5″ is awesome), having hardware keys (big fan of this red round home key and two little tiny dots, ok the idea belongs to Nubia we all know) and not loosing from screen size in that matter is very ergonomic. 32GB Rom supported with an SD card slot. Good cameras both rear and front, 13MP rear┬áSony IMX258 sensor, f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, 5MP┬áfront, f/2.0 aperture. And all these specs for under 189 $ (official price is even under 150$), believe me most of us don’t need more than this in a smartphone. Downside being, you can’t find 360 N4 easily to buy, and there is upgraded version announced that has 5000mAh battery inside. If 360 manages to produce those phones in enough numbers to feed the smartphone market, can be the next succeess story from China. Their next line is worth to look if you haven’t yet :┬á360 Q5 & Q5 Plus.

I decided not to include any MediaTek┬áMTK6753 based phone in this article (MTK6592 was the king of this class), because┬áfor a little higher budget you can get a Helio P10 or X10 even. Elephone S3 is an exception because of its bezel-less design. This phone just don’t have any bezels both sides like Nubia Z11 and has a full metal frame. It has 3GB of Ram, 16GB of Rom supported with an SD card slot. A fingerprint sensor on the back and 13MP+5MP camera configuration with not bad sensors at all. 5.2″ screen size is pocket-friendly. I think Elephone S3 is worth 150$, this is a very good looking and solid phone for sure. Not everybody knows about Antutu benchmark, there are still plenty of users who use these machines as mobile phones only, and I am one of them ­čÖé

For buyers just around the limit of 100$, please check our “phone buying guide under 100$” too.┬áPepsi P1S┬ástill is the┬ábest value for money with its 96.99$ price, having┬áMTK6592 64-bit Octa-Core (sorry, it’s a 32-bit CPU) ┬á1.7GHz CPU and a fingerprint scanner in a metal body of 5.5″ size.

            Selam kardes, iyi Bayramlar.

            Sen Yasir’e ald─▒rma, arada bir a┼č─▒r─▒ dal─▒yor oraya buraya. Ama k├Ât├╝ niyetli de─čil gibi.

            Bu arada g├╝zel bir yaz─▒ olmu┼č eme─čine sa─čl─▒k. X600 kullan─▒yorum, pil d─▒┼č─▒nda memnunum. 360 n4s ├Ânerir misin, nerede bulabiliriz? San─▒r─▒m beni vibe p1 paklar, ┼ču an 123 dolara da bulmak m├╝mk├╝n. X600 113’e kadar dustuyse tam kelepirmis, ├žok iyi cihaz ├ž├╝nk├╝.

            Aleyk├╝m Selam, iyi bayramlar Hirant. ├çok te┼čekk├╝rler. X600 baz─▒ sitelerde 120$ alt─▒ evet ama yak─▒nda biter stoklar o fiyatlara. 360 N4S ┼čiddetle ├Âneririm tabi de bulmas─▒ zor. Yeteri say─▒da ├╝retemiyorlar belki, belki kendi kanallar─▒ doyunca internete d├╝┼čer. Burdaki edit├Âr arkada┼čtan ara┼čt─▒rmas─▒n─▒ rica etmi┼čtim bakal─▒m ne ├ž─▒kacak.

            Ja ja ja. U and yashir lost us here

          • Muhammad Yasir

            wait , ‘MY’ EID ? you’re from Turkey and your name is Osman and you don’t celebrate Eid ??

            thanks for the greetings. same to you

            as for the politeness… most people know me around here , so im not the one acting like an odd joe. i believe Linus is incharge of this website … you can ask him about me , if you think im just trolling or being reckless !

            and i don’t think you should bring religion into the behavior debate , if any thing , it weirds things out even further. even a christian or a jew or even atheist can act differently. kindly , don’t make religion the center of this all. I usually am polite … tho i din’t know that you’ll take it this seriously.

            so , sorry for calling you dumb.

    • Hakim Farouk

      Is it a lil too extreme to call someone dumb when clearly it was a typo Yasir..

      • Muhammad Yasir

        ok fine… but this ain’t the first time i have seen this blunder

  • Venci

    Nice article

  • niek

    Nice article, however I’m looking for a phone in that price range with B20, I don’t care that much about camera, Elephone S3 seems nice but the battery seems very low… any idea?

    • androidbrick

      Your desired screen size ? Battery never been an issue if there is quick charge option, and Elephone S3 has that feature.

      • niek

        5.5″ would be perfect. I think battery might be an issue even with quick charge because I’m usually not near a power supply

        • androidbrick

          Wish you can find a 360 N4s to buy, with 5000mAh battery and around 200$. Maybe in these days they will come in some stocks of some online resellers.

          • niek

            I didn’t know about this phone it seems great, thank you! However, it seems that B20 is missing ­čÖü

          • Rick Flair

            Apparently none of the cases fit on the RN3 with lte 700 as it’s taller not sure if your talking about that one?

          • niek

            I don’t know if I can include link but I’m talking about a phone you can find in a shop where geek are buying stuff (item 371104)

    • Hakim Farouk

      But avoid Elephone. Trust me. The software on their phones are not usable. They are good at gimmick marketing but with no solid products. If you go to their official forum, you’ll find out that the whatsapp app on S3 can’t send pictures and etc. Their forum will tell you all about the real deal about Elephone. I was an elephone user. Don’t be fooled

      • niek

        Thank you for your feedback, I appreciate.

  • jirkous

    again no B20 phone with nice camera :-/, only that ele-crap here got the b20

  • Karly Johnston

    Le Max 2 is on sale for $249. Nothing beats that deal.

    • androidbrick

      You are right, it might be the hero of our upcoming 200-300$ class guide.

    • Lastnoob

      where?

      • Karly Johnston

        Gearbest

  • Hirant

    Why this list doesn’t include cool1? This is also below 200 USD price mark, on some online resellers. And have SD 652, Type C, 4000 mah battery, dual front camera, LeEco black border design and a solid metal build, as far as I recall…

    Probably on my shopping list, altogether with Lenovo Vibe P1 and the infamous Redmi Note 3 Pro (2GB/16 GB) version…

    • androidbrick

      We did not include “pre-order” status models, otherwise yes Cool1 and Redmi Note 4 should be here too, next month’s article ­čÖé

  • Mateus Marta

    Mi4? Mi note? Letv one pro? Just to name a few.

    • androidbrick

      “There are so many choices when we include old models from last year too, I mean models with old chipsets that has been updated with new series. So they will be eliminated, otherwise this list wonÔÇÖt end”, there are already many Xiaomi alternatives that i included from 5″ to 6.44″, so.

  • Wolvie

    Why the shitty elephoney phone is in the list.?????

    • androidbrick

      “Elephone S3 is an exception because of its bezel-less design.”

  • androidbrick

    Get ready for 200-300$ Guide, which makers phone will be the Editor’s Choice ? Bets are open.
