Despite what you may hear on popular tech blogs, not everyone needs a top-of-the-line phone. If the extent of your phone use is texting friends and surfing the internet, there’s no need to spend over $1000 on a high-end model when perfectly serviceable options like the iPhone SE 2 and Android budget phones like the Pixel 3A, Galaxy S10E, and Galaxy A51 exist. But how do these options stack up?

Since we provide iPhone repair, we’ve had a lot of experience with the iPhone SE since its introduction in 2016. The new model has an A13 Bionic processor, wireless charging, and iOS 13, all for a budget-friendly $399.

The Galaxy A51 will set you back even less at $280. This price gets you an impressive camera with 48 megapixels, but upgrade to the Pixel 3A and you’ll get a camera that takes fantastic photos in the dark, AR in Google Maps, and time-lapse video for $360. Spend even more for the Galaxy S10E to get a Snapdragon 855 chip, long-lasting battery, and wireless charging.

Which budget phone is right for you? We recommend comparing them in person before making a decision. Even a budget phone is an investment that you’ll want to put some thought into!
