Buying the best phone (in terms of specs) is not possible for everyone, and its also not recommendable if you are a newcomer in the world of smartphones, or even if your needs aren’t that lavish.
After doing a brief review of dual-core Android smart phones, we thought of sharing the list of inexpensive budget Android smartphones.
The following phones were selected mainly for people who are new in this smartphone world or for those who can’t afford expensive phones (only the phones with low prices and rich feature set were selected).
