1. Samsung Galaxy M31

The Samsung Galaxy M31 is one of the more expensive options on this list, starting at Rs 15,999 (~$220) in India. But this follow-up to the Galaxy M30 and M30s definitely brings the heat.EDITOR’S PICK

The best budget camera phones you can buy

Much like its predecessors, the battery is the biggest selling point of the Galaxy M31. But you’re getting an even larger 6,000mAh cell here compared to previous devices. The quad-camera setup is pretty impressive at this price too, featuring a 64MP main camera, 8MP ultra-wide shooter, 5MP macro camera, and 5MP depth sensor. You’re essentially getting a Realme and Xiaomi rival at this price point.CHECK PRICING

Samsung Galaxy M31 specs:

  • Display: 6.4-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Exynos 9611
  • RAM: 4/6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 64, 8, 5, and 5MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 6,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

2. Samsung Galaxy A30s

The cheap Samsung Galaxy A30s phone


The Samsung Galaxy A30s is a slightly tweaked version of the Galaxy A30, as the name implies. The Galaxy A30s differs from the A30 thanks to its higher resolution triple rear cameras, the addition of an in-display fingerprint sensor, and a lower resolution OLED screen (HD+ versus Full HD+).

It’s not the most powerful budget phone, featuring a lower mid-range Exynos 7904 processor, but you’re getting a 4,000mAh battery for a decent level of endurance. And it’s reasonably priced on Amazon.CHECK PRICING

Samsung Galaxy A30s specs:

  • Display: 6.4-inch, HD+
  • SoC: Exynos 7904
  • RAM: 3/4GB
  • Storage: 32/64/128GB
  • Cameras: 25, 8 and 5MP
  • Front camera: 16MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

3. Samsung Galaxy M10s

The Samsung Galaxy M10s -- best cheap Samsung phones


The Samsung Galaxy M10s isn’t the most spectacular budget phone out there, but it’s certainly a step above the cheapest phones on this list. You’re essentially looking at a Galaxy A10 with a bigger battery, two rear cameras instead of one (with an ultra-wide 5MP sensor), and the same 8MP selfie camera. And the lower mid-range processor with two big CPU cores means that general performance should be a step above sub-$150 Samsung phones.CHECK PRICING

Samsung Galaxy M10s specs:

  • Display: 6.4-inch, HD+
  • SoC: Exynos 7884B
  • RAM: 3GB
  • Storage: 32GB
  • Cameras: 13 and 5MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

4. Samsung Galaxy A10s

The cheap Samsung Galaxy A10s.


Samsung’s Galaxy A10s trades the Galaxy A10’s power for endurance and cameras. That means you’re getting a 4,000mAh battery instead of a 3,400mAh pack, a 13MP+2MP rear camera pairing instead of a solitary 13MP shooter, and an 8MP selfie camera instead of a 5MP sensor.

You’re also getting a rear fingerprint scanner if you opt for the new phone, which should make device unlocking and general authentication more convenient. The A10s lacks the A10’s big CPU cores, though, but the Helio P22 chipset should still do the basics just fine. It retails for less than $200, making it one of the best cheap Samsung phones for pure price/performance ratio.CHECK PRICING

Samsung Galaxy A10s specs:

  • Display: 6.2-inch, HD+
  • SoC: MediaTek Helio P22
  • RAM: 2/3GB
  • Storage: 32GB
  • Camera: 13 and 2MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

5. Samsung Galaxy A01

Looking for the cheapest Samsung phone but don’t want an Android Go device? That’s where the Galaxy A01 comes in, running Android 10 and One UI 2.0. You’re definitely getting a low-end experience though, featuring a Snapdragon 439 chipset, 2GB of RAM, a microUSB port, a 3,000mAh battery, and a 13MP+2MP rear camera duo.CHECK PRICING

Samsung Galaxy A01 specs:

  • Display: 5.7-inch, HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 439
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Storage: 16GB
  • Camera: 13 and 2MP
  • Front camera: 5MP
  • Battery: 3,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

And that’s it for our look at the best samsung basic phones, but it’s worth noting that there are plenty of cheap devices from other brands too.
