The best mobile phones for less than 100 euros (June 2018)

Choosing a mobile phone is becoming more complicated, as there are more models and with fewer differences. Even harder is choosing on a tight budget, where opting for a bad decision can take its toll. We propose the Best mobiles for less than 100 euros.

However, we can have a good mobile, even if we have a very tight budget. Of course, keep in mind that the experience that a mobile will offer you at this price will be far from what we would expect if we look for performance in games or photographs, features that if you are interested maybe you should aim for higher budgets.

A mobile of 100 euros serves for messaging, music, video and web browsing modestly. The mobile will respond well, but do not expect miracles. Do not expect to be up to date in terms of updates.

The best: Nokia 3

The Nokia 3 is one of the mobiles with which Nokia announced on its return to Android. At the time of its launch we found a good mobile, but perhaps a little expensive for the benefits it offered. Over the months it has become a terminal that offers a better balance, and that right now for 99 euros is the best you can buy.

While the Nokia 3 does not have that version of Android optimized for modest computers, it does not need it either. A mobile that is also updated to Android 8.0 Oreo and with a great update policy. In fact, the Finnish company has already announced that all its mobile template will receive Android P, so it will be the best updated affordable mobile.

The best: Xiaomi Redmi 4A and 5A

New Xiaomi Redmi 4A for less than € 70

The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi arrived in Spain in style, bringing their most popular mobiles. This appointment could not miss the Xiaomi Redmi 4A, which is probably the best selling mobile in the history of Xiaomi (at least, it is the only one that during 2017 entered the list of mobiles sold worldwide).

How did you get a mobile like this to be among the best sellers worldwide? Well, because it has a good power for the price we find, in addition to enjoying good performance with a layer of customization such as MIUI. It is also the mobile with the best camera at this price, taking acceptable photographs in good light.

In recent months, Xiaomi has also brought the Xiaomi Redmi 5A to Spain, a mobile that has a slightly better camera (although not too much). It costs 109 euros, so if you want to have a better photographic experience, you are interested, although I recommend you opting for the Redmi 4A of 32 GB of memory, improves that for the same price it shows much more.

Other alternatives

Android Go and well updated: Nokia 1

If you are concerned about user experience and updates, it was usually not a good idea to bet on affordable terminals. However, Google has been working on a project called Android Go, a version of Android better prepared for teams with more restrained resources.

Nokia has been one of the first companies to bet on this new version of Android with Nokia 1. It is a mobile with fair specifications, but with an Android version updated to version 8.1 Oreo, with applications that according to Google have been optimized to improve the user experience in affordable terminals.

Warning: The Nokia 3 at the time we wrote this article is available for only 10 euros more and offers a better experience. Choose this mobile only in case the Nokia 3 has raised the price again.

Huawei Y6 2017

Huawei Y6II, all the informationHuawei's most affordable mobile is also under the 100 euros band. A terminal with modest specifications and with all the features of the Huawei customization layer. A terminal less recommended than the previous ones but that is not bad either.

Absolutely cheap: Alcatel U5

If you are looking for the most affordable mobile possible, an emergency mobile, Alcatel has a model for you.

Keep in mind that this mobile will not be able to offer a user experience that we consider to be good, but it has the minimum performance we expect for extremely tight budgets, where every euro is important.
