Who buys cheap, which buys twice. In any case, says the vernacular. But the adage also applies to smartphones? Of course, the expensive devices, Samsung and Apple at the top cavort in the upper regions of the Our site leaderboard. But cheap Smartphones that ten times less expensive than an iphone, are also ten times worse? And how much fun is the everyday life with equipment for 80 euros or even less? Our site dares the check.
Overview: something good cheap smartphones?
Dominate the plastic bomber
The Artsy have to hide while not walking the bashfully, but already their look can not even begin compete with the noble design of the Smartphone elite. Measured on the lower price the cheap alternatives are at least clean processed, only the sharp-edged and scratch-prone ARCHOS 40 does power then still too cheap. The customer for less than 100 euros of course don’t expect chic aluminium garments, all candidates have stuffy plastic housing. The Lumia 550 by Microsoft after all, resembling a mid-range Smartphone with its plastic back in the elegant piano lacquer.
Little light, much shadow necessary
Fight well but while design can be only hard facts count for the built-in technology. The resolution of most Bildschirmchen is comparatively low, come with the Doogee X 5 and the Lumia 550 only two representatives on the still sharp HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels). All other candidates fall off dramatically with lousy resolution and image quality. A slate look at the displays enough to distort the colors completely and make text illegible. Course, Such screens are in the Museum of technology. Insufficient brightness of the displays upsets in dark rooms while hardly, but who wants to check the message location outside in the sunlight, can see hardly anything too dark screens. The displays with diagonals between 4 inches (10.1 cm) and 5 inches (12.6 cm) are also pretty small, but it brings not only disadvantages. The small cheap Smarties are certainly better in the hand as many premium Phablet.
Technology of the China bar
Good who scrolls down just 70 euros for its new smartphone, which is also no radiant bright pixel Monster. But the sluggish operation of the Artsy is quickly annoying, the slow entry level processors are the most stubborn brake in everyday life. Notice the user both the wipe through the app launcher and launching apps that approve is sometimes more than just a Memorial second. After all, you can simple apps like whatsapp & co. Easily use, 3D games bring the little calculator significantly to their limits. Slowest is a trademark device: Sony’s in the years come Xperia E1 is the snail under the very inexpensive and very lame cell phones with its two processors. Just for comparison: the current Middle class has eight cores and cycles twice as fast. Most likely still the Huawei Y3 and the Microsoft Lumia 550 convince in this comparison. Both benefit from the operating system: a specially modified by Huawei Android interface (EMUI) running the Y3, the Lumia uses the efficient Windows 10

No security issue
Microsoft’s resource-conserving system comes with the outdated technology nor the best way, because the Android smart phones in this price range do not put on the latest version of the software. Usually come Android 5.1 or the two-year-old Android 4.4.4 for the usage. Only positive exception: thanks to update now with Android, the Motorola E2 runs 6.0 Marshmallow. Otherwise require the low cost here their toll: major software updates are usually in short supply and the manufacturer simply unprofitable. He then rather immediately brings the successor on the market. The customer shall bear the risk of the security risk of viruses is nowhere as big as in the lowest price range. For malicious software, there are certainly enough security vulnerabilities.

Please no longer smile!
Who needs still a proper SLR camera? Straight answer: everyone who buys a mobile phone for less than 100 euros. Whether to little sharpness in detail shots, washed-out and unnatural colors or disturbing noise none of artsy delivers photos with satisfactory quality. There not really worth the targeting of the subject. Especially as by starting the camera app a few seconds can pass up to the finished photo so long rarely waits the target object of the snapshot. Material from the ramp of rest of is blame for plight: the main cameras have maximum 8 and in most models, for example the Samsung Galaxy S2 scored only 5 megapixels it before five years of 8-megapixel photos. The front camera of cheap mobile phones are still weaker. Apart from the 5-megapixel camera of the Doogee X 5, which delivered the best results in the practice test, the front camera lenses for Selfies are useless. It lacks color, contrast or sharpness here at all! Sony has probably pulled the emergency brake and immediately dropped the front camera on the Xperia E1.

LTE is a rarity
The LTE cellular-Turbo is in the middle and upper classes now standard, but in the lowest region of the price still a rarity. Up on the Motorola E2, all Android models of this comparison can use only the noticeably slower UMTS networks. Even Microsoft’s Lumia 550 joins the LTE elite. Who pays monthly for an expensive mobile phone rates with LTE, should look at least on the shelf of the middle-class Smartphone. This saves time and nerves! Pluses could actually collect the Artsy with high endurance, finally, the weak entry-level technology needs too much juice. But in practice the batteries with their low capacity rarely for more than a day is sufficient.

Better access to the middle class
The entry-level devices are simply bad smartphones? No, because in addition to the low price they offer an extra that even many iphone – 6s- and Galaxy jealous S7 owner: a second SIM card fits into any model of this comparison. An extra-Smartphone for the profession is therefore superfluous. Many hybrid devices a memory card you can instead of the SIM insert, which extends the mostly low disk space for little money. But overall meet the cheap mobile phones today’s standards no longer. As secondary device for the holidays or secret parallel worlds, they are still a reasonably viable alternative. But not for the young who want to explore the seemingly endless expanse of the World Wide Web on your own the outdated software is simply a high security risk. Our site therefore recommends: spend better some extra money, there are already solid middle-class, about the Motorola Moto G3, with better technology for 150 euro. For 200 euros, for example, the honor of 5 C offers an even better value for money. Who wants to save and yet not renounce to a Samsung – or Apple device, should look around actually on the used market. There are Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and the iphone 5S of Apple from 200 euro.

Conclusion: cheap smartphones are no alternative!
Weak displays, slow technology and obsolete software, that can lead to security problems of cheap smartphones are many no longer recommended. Only the Microsoft Lumia 550 offers yet a real value with stylish design, solid hardware and modern operating system.
