Looking for a budget smartphone that’s up to date? AT&T has a few new options that you may want to consider.
The three phones are built by Samsung, and they all fall under the $200 mark. Sure, their features might not knock your socks off, but hey, these are budget phones.
Samsung Galaxy J3
First up is the Samsung Galaxy J3, which is set to go on sale on May 3. It has a price tag of $170 and is the best of the bunch. It includes up to 16GB of onboard storage, as well as a MicroSD card slot, enabling you to expand storage by up to 128GB. It has a 5.0-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels, as well as an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Last but not least is the 1.5GB of RAM. In all honesty, while the specs certainly aren’t anything to write home about, this is not a bad phone for the price.
Samsung Galaxy Express Prime
The second device is the Samsung Galaxy Express Prime GoPhone, which is on sale for $130. The phone includes 16GB of internal storage, and a MicroSD card slot. It also comes with an Exynos 3475 processor and 1.5GB of RAM. The Express Prime GoPhone, as the name suggests, will only be available through AT&T GoPhone, though.
Samsung Galaxy Express 3
Last but not least is the Samsung Galaxy Express 3, which comes with a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen and a 2,050-mAh battery. It has a 5-megapixel rear-facing and 2-megapixel front-facing camera combo, and is also only available through GoPhone for just $80.
These days, the words “budget phone” just don’t taste as bitter as they used to. All of these phones are a great way to experience Android, and while they might not be the best phones for the tech enthusiast; for the budget-minded or the first-time smartphone owner, they aren’t bad at all.
