AND THE BEST AFFORDABLE 4G SMARTPHONE IS
HTC DESIRE 816
The Desire 816 is more than just a midrange phone; it is well executed on a number of fronts. Although its chassis is made of polycarbonate, the Desire 816 still shines as a very well built smartphone. In fact, it is one of the slimmest in its category despite having a 5.5-inch display. Its Sense 6 interface is one of the most polished customized Android overlays that is easy to get accustomed to and feels snappy. More importantly, it is the most consistent performer across the board.
NOKIA LUMIA 635
As far as price is concerned, the Lumia 635 beats the competition hands down. That said, it does not mean a compromise in performance. The Lumia 635 also managed podium finishes in two of the three benchmarks, an impressive feat considering its specs. Sure, the Lumia 635 may have the smallest screen of the lot, but it has great storage support and with the latest Windows Phone 8.1 OS, manages to close the gap with its Android peers in the aspect of user experience.
