Nokia 5.3 Budget Android Smartphone
→ RATING: 8/1O $200
Costs $200! OK performance. Decent screen. Reliable battery life. Uncluttered software. Includes two Android version upgrades and three years of security updates. Plastic body = less glass to shatter. Additional niceties: a headphone jack, expandable storage, and NFC for contactless payments.
No water resistance. Easy to block the bottom-firing speakers with your hands. Cameras perform poorly in low light. Doesn’t support Verizon’s network.
