Best smartphones under $400 -2015

1. Google Nexus 5

Google Nexus 5No other Android smartphone this year has been so eagerly awaited as the Nexus 5, which was released at the end of October. This year’s ‘‘official device’’ from Google is characterized by great hardware specifications at a relatively affordable price like all of the Nexus range. As well as the latest Android software, the Nexus 5 offers up a Snapdragon 800 processor with a clock speed of 2.3 GHz and 2 GB of RAM in support, plus a 5-inch display with Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels, 445 ppi). Considering this, the Nexus 5 is evenly balanced with many of the more expensive high-end devices from other manufacturers. The camera offers a resolution of 8 megapixels and an optical image stabilizer, and the battery is adequate with a capacity of 2,300 mAh. Both the camera and the battery are acceptable, but not exceptional.

It is not perfect it is easily the best smartphone for under $400. Not only is it better than any other Google device, it can comfortably compete with the current top smartphones in the high-end market. The Nexus 5 is available for purchase via the Google Play Store and certain retailers. The version with 16 gigabytes of internal memory currently costs $349, while the 32 gigabyte version costs $399.

PROs                                                                                                                     CONs

Price/performance ratio                                                                               Internal memory not expandable

Latest Android version with guranteed updates                                Battery not replaceable

Design and build quality                                                                                Poor camera performance

2. HTC One mini

HTC One MiniHTC has followed the model of Samsung by introducing a mini version of its flagship model HTC One. The One mini follows the same design aspect as the larger model; the case is also made of aluminum but is supplemented by a white plastic frame. The power of the One mini is quite different to the original One: the Snapdragon 400 processor is clocked at 1.4 GHz and only features 1 GB of RAM. However, both HTC’s Sense 5 user interface and the camera features are identical between both devices. The 4.3-inch display has a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels (342 ppi).

This is a real alternative to the HTC One for some. If you appreciate the design of the HTC One but find that the size or price interferes too much, then the One mini offers a very similar smartphone with the same high quality workmanship and software.

Its plus points are design and build quality along with that amazing BoomSound™ in stereo speakers. But you’ll end up with a non expandable internal memory and a much weaker processor and RAM than its big brother.
