The Best Smartphones for Less Than 160 Euros

November 2020 update. Looking for a great affordable smartphone? Below, you will find the best smartphones reviewed by us that cost less than 160 Euros, or around $200. Entry-level smartphones will require quite a few compromises from their users but are more often than not more than sufficient for simple tasks and perfectly adequate at running simple applications.
Daniel Schmidt, Stefanie Voigt (translated by Finn D. Boerne),

The flagship smartphones from the established manufacturers always get the most attention. However, not everyone is willing to pay 500 Euros or more. Many people are actually looking for suitable smartphones in the inexpensive entry-level segment, and the price is obviously one major factor. There is no doubt that on paper the specifications reveal significant differences compared to the super smartphones, especially in terms of performance, display and picture quality of the integrated cameras. However, this does not mean that you cannot be happy with an inexpensive smartphone if you have moderate expectations. We list the best smartphones with a current street price of less than 160 USD/Euros that have been reviewed by Notebookcheck over the last 14 months (if the device is still available). The following rankings might be interesting as well:

Editors' Comments

This month, we see the LG K51S make the list.

1st – Xiaomi Redmi 9

Redmi 9

The Redmi 9 features a 6.53-inch IPS display and is powered by a MediaTek midrange SoC. The two available SKUs differ in RAM and storage size with the lower-tier model offering 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage and the upper-tier 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The quad-camera includes an additional ultra-wide-angle lens as well as a macro lens for improved versatility.

It offers a long battery life thanks to its large battery, and even includes an audio jack and NFC despite its low price. The FHD+ panel is adequately bright, and the only downside worth mentioning is the somewhat poor mono speaker.

Pricecompare

2nd – Honor 9X Lite

Honor 9X Lite

The Honor 9X Lite is a well-made update to last year’s model. Unfortunately, it has to make do without various improvements due to the ongoing trade war between the United States and China in order to continue offering Google’s services. Among others, these include the aging SoC as well as the fairly old version of Android, version 9, that Honor is shipping the device with. To make matters worse Honor has not yet officially announced whether or not the Lite 9X is going to receive a major update.

These issues aside the 9X Lite offers a color-accurate display, plenty of storage space, and a decent dual-camera.

Pricecompare

3rd - realme c3

realme C3

The realme C3 comes with a 6.5-inch large IPS display running at HD resolution. It is powered by a brand-new MediaTek mid-range SoC and 3 GB of RAM, and features a total of 32 GB of internal storage. The large 5,000 mAh battery made up for its shortcomings in the triple-camera department.

Visually, we liked the device a lot despite its all-plastic case, and it also comes with a fingerprint reader. Considering its low price, the realme C3 offers a lot for its money.

Pricecompare

4th – Motorola Moto G8

Moto G8

The Motorola Moto G8 offers a great overall package. It combines a 6.4-inch HD IPS display with a Snapdragon 665, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, and a large and long-lasting 4,000 mAh battery. The cameras worked well and produced decent images, and the camera offers an ultra-wide angle and a macro lens.

Considering its low price, the G8 is a decent overall package without major weaknesses.

Pricecompare

5th – Samsung Galaxy A21s

Samsung Galaxy A21s
Samsung Galaxy A21s

The Samsung Galaxy A21s offers a 6.5-inch PLS display running at a fairly low HD+ resolution. With 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage it is equipped adequately. It is furthermore powered by a Samsung octa-core SoC and features a decent quad-camera with ultra-wide-angle lens, macro lens, and depth-of-field sensor. It also comes with an audio jack as well as FM radio.

Its highlight is without a doubt the 5,000 mAh battery that makes for excellent battery life. It also offers fast Wi-Fi and a somewhat decent speaker. In return, its GPS capabilities are lacking.

Pricecompare

6th – LG K51S

LG K51S

The LG K51S is a colorful entry-level smartphone with a large display and battery. Its 6.55-inch IPS display only supports HD resolution resulting in a fairly low pixel density. Its Helio P35 SoC may not be the latest SoC available but it is still fast enough as long as you keep your expectations in check.

Its RAM and storage capacities of 3 and 64 GB, respectively, are decent. The latter is user-expandable, and the device also supports NFC and comes with a headphone jack.

Pricecompare

7th - Samsung Galaxy A20e

Samsung Galaxy A20e

The Samsung Galaxy A20e is one of the more compact smartphones on the market and also comparatively light at 141 grams. It has a 5.8-inch HD+ display, 3 GB RAM, and 32 GB internal storage, which can be expanded via microSD. The dual-camera features an additional ultra wide-angle and takes comparatively good pictures in daylight conditions. 

The Samsung smartphone can convince with its pretty long list of features, so it does not require many compromises. The battery also provides long runtimes, only fans of demanding games and selfies will not be happy with the A20e.

Pricecompare

8th – Huawei Y6s

Huawei Y6s
Huawei Y6s

The Huawei Y6s features a 6.09-inch large IPS display running at a native resolution of 1560 x 720. It is powered by a mid-range SoC made by MediaTek, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal storage space that can be further expanded via microSD card.

In our review we praised its good camera and battery life. It also features a fingerprint reader.

Pricecompare

9th – Sony Xperia L4

Sony Xperia L4

The Sony Xperia L4 offers a 6.2-inch IPS display running at a fairly low HD+ resolution. It is powered by an older MediaTek SoC that is quite common among affordable smartphones, 3 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of microSD-expandable storage.

Its triple-camera performed decent under good lighting conditions and includes an ultra-wide-angle lens as well as a depth-of-field sensor. Its battery may not be the largest, but it still manages to offer decent battery life.

Pricecompare

10th – Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite

Moto G8 Power Lite

With its 6,5-inch display, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of microSD-expandable storage the Motorola Moto G8 Power Lite shares a lot of its characteristics with the Moto G8. The lower price required a few cut corners though, among others a weaker SoC. In return, battery capacity was increased to 5,000 mAh.

The cameras turned out to be mediocre at best and failed to entice us during our test. The speaker performed comparatively well, unfortunately the microSD reader lacks support for exFAT-formatted memory cards.
