The Best Mid-Range Smartphones in 2019 to Help You Stay on Budget

The latest and greatest gadgets often come with a price tag that many of us aren’t willing to look past. Newer models in smartphone lines can cost 20%-35% more than the device that came before it. Luckily, the mid-market range of smartphones is highly competitive. Users can find an abundance of premium quality options for a better value. We’ve also found that older models from Apple and Galaxy come in at a significantly lower price point while still boasting all the feats of a high-end device. If quality and affordability are on your new device checklist, check out CPR Cell Phone Repair’s recommendations for the best mid-range smartphones in 2019.

A Bigger Bang for Your Buck: Our Picks for Best Mid-Range Smartphones in 2019

From exceptional battery life to fast wireless charging, these budget phone features will make you think twice about shelling out for the latest smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S8

The Samsung Galaxy S8 is perfect for someone who’s craving the sleek look of an edge-to-edge screen, like the iPhone XS. Its Super AMOLED display is as clear and vivid as you’ve come to expect with any premium device. Another area you won’t compromise with is its picture-taking ability. You’ll see a lot of enhancements from the latest model, including a new 8-Megapixel front camera, 12-Megapixel rear camera, and better low light capabilities. A Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, virtual home button, and facial recognition make this one of the more advanced handsets from Samsung.

Google Pixel 3A

Google’s debut of a more affordable model to its flagship line was long-anticipated. Customers rave about its camera performance, with stand out features being its 12.2-Megapixel rear camera and Night Mode for low light images. The Google Pixel 3A runs on Android Pie so you can bank on a quality software experience. It too has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 64 gigabytes of storage and an 18w fast-charging battery.

Apple iPhone 8

It may seem ludicrous to include an iPhone with a 2017 release date on this list. But, given the frequent additions to the iPhone lineup, this model proves to be an excellent budget-friendly option for those who can’t part with the iOS experience. Some improvements from earlier models include wireless charging, full HD video, and an A11 Bionic processor. With enhanced portrait lighting effects, TrueTone color technology (as featured on the iPad Pro), and 256 gigabytes of storage, you won’t mind upgrading to last year’s pick.

Motorola Moto G7

Since 2013, Motorola’s Moto G lineup has been immensely popular for several reasons. Like its predecessors, the Moto G7 also boasts a 3,000 mAh battery life and Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It also features a headphone jack and USB-C port which is becoming less popular in more expensive phones. Like the Galaxy 8, this Motorola device has an edge-to-edge 6.2″ display that hosts an 8-Megapixel front camera and a fingerprint sensor. Of all the budget smartphones, this one truly looks like one of its pricey competitors.
