All Brands Await You, Except Apple
Samsung, LG, Sony, Acer… Most manufacturers offer input smartphones or midrange in their collection, alongside their flagship models. Only Apple remains confined to expensive equipment sold, very expensive even compared the characteristics of the iPhone to those of their competitors.
Meanwhile, several brands have chosen to specialize on smartphones “for all”. It is either Chinese groups hidden behind European brands as Alcatel, Wiko (French) or Kazam (UK); either Chinese telecom giants like Huawe i or ZTE.
A Look At The Height
At first glance, difficult to distinguish a cheap another smartphone. Most show good quality finishes, they may not have much to envy the top models. Their hull will probably stripped of frills Invent manufacturers to stand out on the more expensive models (fake plastic stitching on the Galaxy Note 3 Samsung, for example). In general, our laboratory testing is positive enough with respect to the strength of the models we tested.
Do not expect to enjoy a high definition screen on these models. The manufacturers include a screen with a definition of 480 x 800 pixels or 320 x 480 pixels. This is much less than the 1136 x 640 pixels of the iPhone 5S or 1920 x 1080 pixels Samsung Galaxy S4 , but nevertheless sufficient (do not opt for a smartphone with definition screen less than 320 x 480 pixels). The display is “pixelated” but the screen is typically reactive, which is more important.
For lower prices, smartphone manufacturers also sacrifice the internal memory. You rarely find more than 4 GB, which may be insufficient if you store music, applications, photos. You will need to expand the storage capacity with a memory card of 4, 8, 16 or 32 GB (sold between 8 and 45 €).
However, the low cost models, you often find two SIM card slots to manage two lines on the same device.
Cheap smartphones are generally not compatible with the 4G mobile networks. They are content to 3G, which can already browse the Internet comfortably. However, it will happen in the course of compatible models less than 200 € from the major manufacturers.
Because their vocation is to provide the bulk, cheap smartphones are not references for photo and video. Although they sometimes offer valuable options (focus, scene modes, adjusting white balance, for example), the quality of the shots is generally not at the rendezvous.
Android, the operating system developed by Google team the vast majority of smartphones, let alone cheap smartphones. Unless you opt for a used smartphone (see box below), you will not find any iPhone that works with the system iOS competitor at least € 400.
The Android interface is simple and intuitive enough. No problem with use, therefore. The differences between the marks come from the software layer applied by manufacturers to customize their interfaces.
With a small budget, you can find some models under Windows Phone, Microsoft’s system. Unlike Android, the operating system is not offered free to manufacturers, who logically tend to turn to Android.
Used Market: Bargains
You want to buy an iPhone, but put no price? Turn to the used market ! In recent years, the market for second-hand smartphones has grown significantly. Since the establishment of the e-waste recycling industry, in 2006, retailers have the obligation to collect old mobile consumers who want to get rid of. To encourage them to, most of them are buying them, test them, clean them, erase them, and calls into sales. Several mobile operators have opened the Internet a used mobile shop (Bouygues Telecom, SFR, Sosh, etc.), on which one can find such an iPhone 3GS 16GB at € 134.90, a Nokia Lumia 625-180 € or a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to 250 €. Of course, the battery is not new. It is also possible that the hull is scratched (smartphones are classified according to their state). But operators are fairly strict and eliminate damaged models.In addition, they offer a reassuring guarantee of 6 months part and labor (such as the Consumer Code requires it). A good reason to prefer these shops to private sales sites like Ebay or Good corner.
