When it comes to the best budget smartphones, the Honor 7X can easily make it to any list we make. 

The device has a 5.93-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio display giving out a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels and a pixel density of 407 pixels per inch. The Honor 7X has a dual camera setup at the back (16MP + 2MP) with Phase Detection Autofocus. The device has started receiving Android Oreo update as well. 


If you are looking for a budget smartphone which features a dual camera, the Honor 7X is certainly one of the best smartphones you can go for.

Oppo A1

oppo A1 full review

The Oppo A1 was recently announced and is one of the budget smartphones that are operating on Android 8.1 Oreo. Though there are some key areas (the absence of a dedicated fingerprint scanner for instance) which the company has cut short with the Oppo A1. Nevertheless, it runs on the current latest version of Android.

The device features a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 aspect ratio, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage.


Honor 9 Lite

Honor 9 Lite full review

The Honor 9 Lite is yet another amazing choice for a budget smartphone running on Android Oreo 8.1 with EMUI 9 on top. 

Not only does it feature a dual rear camera setup (13 MP + 2 MP), it also has a dual camera setup at the front (13 MP + 2 MP). The device runs on Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box and features a face unlock mechanism. There is a pretty swift fingerprint scanner at the back of the device as well. Talking about the back, the rear of the device sports a glass design which looks absolutely premium.

Xiaomi Mi A1 (Xiaomi Mi A2 also lined up)

mi A1

Xiaomi Mi A1 is one of the best budget Android smartphones when it comes to the camera experience. On top of that, the device runs on Android One meaning that it not only runs on Android Oreo, it is also sure to get Android P in the near future.

With the Mi A1, we get a dual camera setup (16MP + 16MP) at the back which supports 2x optical zoom. Though there is no bezel-less game going around with this device, the fact that the Mi A1 runs on Android One means that you would be receiving regular Android updates. The design of the device is not bad at all. If, however, you desperately want that 18:9 aspect ratio, you are not going to find it in here.


Nubia V18

The Nubia V18 is an amazing looking smartphone running on Android Nougat (with Android Oreo coming up in a matter of weeks). It features a great spec sheet and if you can wait for the latest Android update to arrive on this device, it is worth giving a try.
