What are peoples thoughts on the best budget phone out there at the moment.. and i'm talking sub $500
was hoping the oneplus 3t would drop into that range but seems it will sell out before getting there.
I don't think you can beat the Xiaomi Redmi 4X Pro from AliExpress for under $200NZ. Great camera, fast chipset, great build quality.
Vodafone Smart Mini7 - $34 at the warehouse, buy one for each ear!
Fully recommend the Vodafone Smart V8 for $350. Bought one last weekend as a replacement for a broken Lumia 735 and it's my first Android phone after persisting with Windows for a few years. Loving it so far, seems a really device for the price and comes with the latest version of android too. Few people I've showed it to have been surprised the price is that low, including a couple of people using Samsung S7's. Didn't want to spend more than $400, and was tossing up between this and a couple of others and very happy with my choice in the end.
