Taking the brilliant foundations of its predecessor, the Nokia 5.1 Plus adds a bigger screen and a larger battery to boot, making this one tough budget smartphone to contend with.


What is the best phone in 2019?

These Prime Day deals are all well and good, but what’s the best smartphone that money can buy? If you want a snappy, we’d be tempted to say the Huawei P30 Pro. It’s got the best camera and stunning battery life, in particular.

Of course, Huawei is going through a bit of a tough spot right now from a political perspective, which might scare you off. There are plenty of excellent alternatives, such as the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus with its class-leading display and curvaceous design. Or the OnePlus 7 Pro with its fluid software, responsive (and notch-free) 90Hz display, and blistering performance.

In terms of pure bangs for your bucks, it’s difficult to look beyond the Xiaomi Mi 9, which provides the kind of aggressive price-performance ratio that should make Apple, Huawei and Samsung sweat. Find out more about how we decide the best phones here.

What is the best cheap smartphone?

If your budget doesn’t stretch to any of the aforementioned flagship phones, don’t worry. The entry-level smartphone market is just as vibrant, as our best budget smartphones round-up will attest.

We’d particularly direct your attention to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7, which offers strong performance, decent battery life and a great screen for a low price. The Moto G7 Plus is another strong budget contender, thanks to its classy design, clean Android software, and strong camera performance.

What are the best mid-range smartphones?

If the premium phones are bit too expensive, but budget phones don’t cut the mustard, then you’ll be suited well by picking out one of the best mid-range smartphones we’ve listed for you. Top of the pile is the Xiaomi Mi 9, which is good enough to rival flagships with its screen and cameras, and yet retains a temptingly affordable price. The OnePlus 7 also makes our list thanks to its powerful performance — if you’re a keen mobile gamer, this would be an excellent choice from the mid-range. For its fantastic camera performance, the Google Pixel 3a also makes our list.

What smartphone deals can you expect?

Based on recent launch patterns, there are a couple of smartphones which are prime candidates for a sharp knockdown in price. This includes the Google Pixel 3, following the launch of its cheaper Pixel 3a little brother, and the OnePlus 6T, which we expect to tumble in price now that the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro have hit the shelves.

At this point, Prime Day is particularly well-known for its deals on cheaper phones (read our guide the best budget phones). In recent months, we’ve seen several price drops on the Trusted Reviews favourite, Xiaomi Mi 9, with some discounts being as high as £100. Don’t be surprised if another phone from the Xiaomi family sees a price drop during the sale.

What is Amazon Prime day?

Amazon Prime Day is a deals bonanza on Amazon comparable to Black Friday or Cyber Monday in the online sales stakes. This year it’s held on July 15 & July 16, and we know to expect a whole raft of savings from products across Amazon’s vast catalogue of products. If you’re looking for a new SIM-Free mobile phone, then there’s a good chance that a few tempting prospects will pop up. We’ll flag the very best deals for you right on this page, so make sure to keep checking back.
