Continue our journey to discover the best smartphones by price range. In this article, we deal with the segment between 100 and 150 euros , the one in which a good part of users identify themselves. Thanks to the interest from brands such as Xiaomi , Samsung, Motorola and OPPO it is possible to buy a valid smartphone even on a tight budget while still enjoying a more than satisfactory user experience.

It is clear that in these figures there are compromises to be accepted: the materials are cheaper, the photographic performances are far from the top, the NFC is often missing and at least for the moment there is no support for 5G which is still in phase. arrival, just think of the Redmi Note 9T 5G . Either way, smartphones sold for under $ 150 have everything most users need.

  • The best smartphones under 100 euros

  • The best smartphones under 500 euros

Note : the prices shown do not include shipping costs.

Redmi Note 9

NFC : Yes

Redmi Note 9

The Redmi Note series is the most successful at Xiaomi. The drop in price makes Redmi Note 9 one of the best smartphones to buy for less than 150 euros. Unlike the POCO M3, here we find the NFC chip and a fourth 8 megapixel wide-angle camera. The design also changes and becomes more classic: it has everything that most users need and is available in the version with 64 GB or 128 GB of internal memory. We recommend the latter even if it slightly exceeds the threshold of 150 euros.

Redmi Note 9 is preferable if you need NFC and want to have a little more fun with the wide-angle camera.

Samsung Galaxy A02s

NFC : No

Galaxy A02s

Samsung Galaxy A02s is one of the cheapest proposals on the list . It is a basic smartphone suitable for those who do not have high demands. The performance is still excellent, thanks to the Snapdragon 450 processor (among the best in the entry-level segment) combined with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. The internal space is a bit narrow, which is why it is recommended for those who do not have to do large operations with the smartphone. The display is large (6.5 inches) and the choice of a matte finish for the rear shell helps prevent dirt and fingerprints. There are three cameras and the 5,000 mAh battery ensures a long autonomy.

Samsung Galaxy A02s is the best Samsung smartphone in this price range and on top of that you will have the peace of mind of the first brand in the world.


NFC : No

OPPO A53s 5G

OPPO smartphones are rivals to Xiaomi’s proposals. Right now, the best OPPO smartphone in this price range is the A53s . It is a smartphone that can count on a performing processor, a fluid screen thanks to the 90 HZ refresh rate (usually present in higher price ranges) and a large 5,000 mAh battery, capable of ensuring excellent autonomy. The design is a bit retro with the fingerprint sensor placed on the rear panel but the body is characterized by the usual bright and iridescent colors – that is, they change according to how the body is hit by the light – typical of OPPO smartphones.

OPPO A53s is a smartphone suitable for all audiences, the bright colors make it suitable even for a very young audience.

Motorola Moto G10

NFC : Yes

Mottorola Moto G10

Moto G10 is the cheapest proposal of the Moto G range which also sees the presence of Moto G30 and Moto G100. The real strength of this smartphone is the incredible autonomy (up to three days with a single charge) given by the 5,000 mAh battery, a low energy-consuming but performing processor and the low resolution of the display (HD +). The processor is the same as the OPPO A53s, but Motorola’s proposal also offers the NFC chip, a 48 MP camera and an 8 Megapixel wide-angle lens and clean software. In short, it is a great alternative in this price range.

Moto G10 is ideal for those who want a smartphone with great autonomy while still having elements such as NFC and the 48 MP camera available.


NFC : No


OPPO A15 is the direct competitor of Galaxy A02s. In fact, they share most of the technical characteristics except for a few details: the processor and the graphic interface. Elements that however do not translate into a big difference in daily use. The aesthetics are also very similar. Only the positioning of the rear photographic structure changes. The battery drops a little but the guaranteed autonomy is equivalent. In short, the choice in this case will depend on your preference for one or the other brand.

OPPO A15 is currently the cheapest smartphone on the list and is suitable for those who want a basic smartphone, without great pretensions.



Xiaomi Poco M3

Arrived at the end of 2020, Xiaomi POCO M3 immediately attracted attention for the low price and for its rear design. The shell is in fact made of rough plastic which creates a leather-like effect that contrasts with a glossy plate that houses the photographic module consisting of three cameras. A large 6.5-inch display and a 6,000 mAh battery that ensures extraordinary autonomy are the other strengths of the POCO M3. Too bad for the absence of the NFC.

POCO M3 is a smartphone that does what it promises and if you do not have great expectations it will not disappoint on any occasion.
