This device, which is released for those looking for a low-budget smartphone, shows that it is low-budget with many features. The device has a 6.5-inch PLS LCD screen and comes with HD+ resolution. Galaxy F04’s screen is quite behind compared to its competitors.

While its competitors have screens using 90Hz and IPS LCD panels, the Galaxy F04 has PLS LCD and 60Hz display. This leaves the Galaxy F04 behind its competitors. Powered by the MediaTek Helio P35 chipset, Galaxy F04 uses the Android 13-based One UI interface. However, we have to say that even the interface performance is not enough for daily use.

The device, which has a 13MP main camera and a 2MP auxiliary camera, is also behind its competitors in recording photos and videos. The 5MP front camera will not satisfy those who like to take selfies. Its 5,000 mAh capacity battery is enough to last a day. It also offers 15W fast charging support. Samsung Galaxy F04, which has a price tag of 90EUR, will not satisfy users because it is behind its competitors. There are better smartphones in the same price segment.

Honor X5

Honor X5 is an ambitious smartphone among the low-budget smartphones developed by Honor. Honor X5’s screen has a 6.5-inch TFT panel. This screen comes with HD+ resolution. Honor X5, which has a screen that lags behind its competitors, will not be among the preferences of those who care about screen quality.

Honor X5, which uses the MediaTek Helio G25 chipset, comes with Android 12 GO edition. This shows that it uses an Android operating system that requires low system requirements for low-equipped smartphones. However, even with these features, it will not satisfy in daily use.

The device with 8MP rear camera does not have a camera quality that can meet daily needs. The 5MP front camera will not satisfy those who like to take selfies. Video recording features are also quite inadequate. Coming with a 5,000 mAh battery, the device has a battery life that can last for a day. With a price tag of 90EUR, this device is quite inadequate for its price segment. For this reason, you can turn to better options instead of buying this smartphone.


POCO C65 is a smartphone for users looking for an affordable budget-friendly smartphone. The features offered by this smartphone for its price are at a level that can compete with its competitors. The 6.74-inch screen has a brightness of 450 nits and a screen refresh rate of 90Hz. This screen with HD+ pixel resolution uses an IPS LCD panel. The device, which comes with MediaTek Helio G85 chip, was released with Android 13-based MIUI 14.

Offering 6GB Ram and 128 gb storage support, the device is quite sufficient for users. The device, which has two 50MP and 2MP rear cameras and an 8MP front camera, can meet average needs in daily use. POCO C65, which has a 5,000 mAh battery, comes with 18W fast charging support. POCO C65, which has a price of 80EUR, seems like a good option for those looking for a low-budget device.

Redmi A2

Redmi is a company that usually produces low and mid-range budget smartphones. Redmi A2 has been launched as a low-budget smartphone. Redmi A2 comes with a 6.52-inch IPS LCD display. This screen has 400 nits brightness and HD+ resolution. The screen features are quite good for the price. Using the MediaTek Helio G36 chipset, the device uses the MIUI 14 interface based on Android 13 GO. Performance is not satisfactory even in daily use.

With 2GB RAM and 32GB storage, the device has quite insufficient RAM and storage options today. The device with 8MP main camera and 0.08MP auxiliary camera has a very insufficient camera performance for today. The front camera performance of the device with 5MP front camera is also quite insufficient like the rear camera performance.

The 5,000mAh battery is sufficient for daily conditions. However, the fact that it offers 10W fast charging support shows that the battery will take a long time to charge. With a price tag of 78EUR, the device lags behind its competitors. There are better options in the same price segment.

Smartphones are getting better and better day by day. The development of smartphones shows that technology, which is very expensive today, can be accessible over time. With the development of technology, smartphones will develop further. As smartphones improve and new ones are released, the old ones will become more affordable.
