Affordable smartphones under $150
Smartphones are fantastic, but they’re certainly not cheap. Even when you bundle them with a 2-year contract from a phone carrier, you’re still likely to pay upwards of $300 for a brand new phone. Well if you’ve had enough of the price gouge, you’ll like what’s happening over at MetroPCS, where they’re listing several Android smartphones for under $150. And best of all, you’ll get Cash Back with your order.
The Optimus L9 is a slim phone with a .36-inch profile to fit anywhere you can think to store it. Its 4.5-inch QHD Gorilla Glass 2 display is hard to scratch and break – a big plus for clumsier phone users. The L9 comes with a 5MP camera that can record in HD at 1080p. You can even take pictures while in camera mode just by saying “Cheese!”. Featuring the Jelly Bean OS, the Optimus L9 is optimized with the latest layout from Google, including an improved voice search option.
The Galaxy Exhibit doesn’t jump too far from the strong feature set of the LG phone we just discussed. It too has a 5MP rear-facing camera that can zoom, auto focus in addition to supporting a front facing camera that supports video chatting. The voice activated features do get a nice boost in the Samsung phone. With S Voice you can make appointments, set alarms and even update Facebook. Voice Search also lets you search the web, and the results will be spoken back at you. Perfect for on-the-go searching.
The Nokia Lumia 521 is a Windows 8 phone that might not be quite as super powered as the Samsung or LG models, but it has more than enough juice to get most tasks accomplished. It features a 4-inch display with a 5MP camera that can shoot video in 720P. Using the Windows OS Live Tiles feature, the phone’s home screen can be customized to your exact specifications and users get 7GB of storage via Microsoft SkyDrive, which syncs via your phone and computer. Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint come pre-installed on the phone, making the Lumia a mobile office right out of the box.
No matter which phone you choose, you’ll be saving yourself some big bucks, especially once you factor in the 4 percent Cash Back offer. Why wait for the next iPhone when you can get a capable smartphone for half the price right now?
