Nokia 3.1

(€139 from Three Ire­land)

If you want to see just how far bud­get smart­phones have come, Nokia’s new 3.1 is a per­fect ex­am­ple. The 5.2-inch hand­set has the kind of fea­tures that would have been con­sid­ered pre­mium a few years ago, like a 13-megapixel rear cam­era, de­cent 3,000mAH bat­tery and solid build qual­ity. It cuts costs by omit­ting things like a finger­print sen­sor but keeps the beloved head­phone jack.

Fu­ji­film X-T100

(€699 with 15-45mm lens from Conns Cam­eras)

The main ad­van­tage to Fuji’s new small 24-megapixel cam­era is its flip-out touch­screen. It also takes Fuji’s ex­cel­lent X lenses. The down­side is that you have more lim­ited man­ual con­trols. If you’re con­sid­er­ing it, go for the combo kit pack (€200 more at €899) which in­cludes an ex­tra (great) XC50230mm tele­photo lens.
