If you’re a mid-range shopper, now is the time to buy a smartphone. In fact, this list serves to explain why this is the case. Here’s a roundup of the best smartphones available to launch this year. Please note that prices are indicative and based on US prices. International prices will vary.
Moto G7 Play – $ 170
Motorola has always been one of the most popular budget phone makers, so it’s no surprise that their current version of the Play phone received an update in 2019. No matter which region you are in, it will be a smart phone at a reasonable price.
The G7 Play features a 5.7-inch display with 720 x 1512 pixel resolution. Inside, you get 2GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 632 processor.The G7 Play is powered by a 3,000mAh battery and you also get a 13MP main camera as well as an 8MP selfie camera.
Quite the middle of the park, to be honest, but it should be noted that no territory has been massively attacked to achieve a low price. You get an acceptable experience in every way.
Moto G7 Power – $ 220
If you want a slightly better Motorola phone, check out the Motorola Moto G7 Power. Basically, this is a direct update to Play in every sense. First, let’s talk about the unique feature that makes the G7 Power stand out.
It has a huge 5,000mAh battery, larger than some flagships. And to top it off, the 6.2-inch display has a resolution of just 720×1570, which, while not the nicest one, means that the battery drain is much lower.

Huawei P Smart 2019 – $ 200
