    Huawei mate 20 x has a stylus. I’m watching this video on mine now

  2. billy bekiaroff on April 9, 2020 at 7:57 am

    Are you Bulgarian mate ?

  3. Rohan Johnson on April 9, 2020 at 8:05 am

    Xiaomi phones dose not give good coverage in the u.s for most of you who are talking about mi 9t redmi note 7 note 8 and note 8 pro they have limited coverage

  4. Mandy Waynick on April 9, 2020 at 8:06 am

    I would consider budget for phones sub $300, 300-500 mid, 500-700 high end and 700-1000 your paying for the brand

  5. Lai Chun Tang on April 9, 2020 at 8:07 am

    China Mobile N5 Pro is currently the best ultra budget phone. $86 for Snapdragon 636, 4+64GB, 1080p LCD screen, dual camera, NFC with glass back. The Stylo 5 isn’t even close.

  6. Kal El on April 9, 2020 at 8:10 am

    Budget phones = under US$100

  7. LazyAndBeyond on April 9, 2020 at 8:11 am

    None of them sadly are better than getting an old flagship
    Get a lg v40, better than every phone listed in everything (apart than camera of 3a but still very close and u got 2 extra cams in v40) for 200$
    If u want cheaper get g7, same CPU (sd 845) one less camera (no telephoto just normal and ultra wide) lcd instead of oled (even tho lcd it’s still the best lcd ever put to a phone, it beats the budget oleds u find in these phones), a little bit smaller battery (3000vs3300) for about 150$ or less

  8. GAMIR_SFM on April 9, 2020 at 8:12 am

    Pixel… Pixel is fanboys Google phone.

  9. Vasanth Sithambaranathan on April 9, 2020 at 8:12 am

    You have misunderstood the term budget phones

  10. KingsManTech 3 on April 9, 2020 at 8:14 am

    For more subscriber’s, just put ph price.

  11. Omar Lopez on April 9, 2020 at 8:14 am

    Why do spme youtubers leave the price out? You only specified the price of the first phone man.

  12. Mandy Waynick on April 9, 2020 at 8:18 am

    Why is the price not included for a budget phone list…. I mean the price is why you’re watching

  13. Vamsi Krishna Reddy on April 9, 2020 at 8:20 am

    Even though my phone is A50, Since Pixel 3a doesn’t fall into the budget category I dislike your analysis.

  14. Alwayswannafly 633 on April 9, 2020 at 8:21 am

    No xiaomi mi9t?

  15. Hani on April 9, 2020 at 8:21 am

    Playspeed: Set to 1.25

    Thanks me later.

    Guy takes ages to speak

    Google pixel

  17. dato 17 on April 9, 2020 at 8:23 am

    realme x2 ????

  18. christian azubuike on April 9, 2020 at 8:23 am

    the camon 12 air and spark 4 are the most budget friendly devices are encountered in 2019, especially considering the specs they carry

  19. unknown m on April 9, 2020 at 8:24 am

    Mi9lite !!!

  20. alex dodony on April 9, 2020 at 8:25 am

    Huawei y7.
    Great phone, battery seems to last forever. Camera is decent and an upgrade on my old y6. Screen is great and the phone seems very durable. Only gripe is the quality of sound could be better but I honestly don’t think at this point there is a better phone out there. Recommended!

    I think the budget price range should be from $100-$300 USD. So the options in this category are the Moto E6=$100-150, Moto G7 Play= $150-$200, Moto G7 Power= $200-$250, Moto G7=$250-$300, the LG K40 =~$150, LG Stylo 5= $180-$250, the Nokia 2.3=$120-$140, Nokia 3.2=$130-$150, the Nokia 4.2=$140-$180, Nokia 6.2=$200-$250, and the Nokia 7.2=$300-$350,

  22. XxGoldExpertxX on April 9, 2020 at 8:27 am

    Dont buy LG they are trash believe me i have the G6 and the camera is garbage, slow and buggy. And sucks with games.

  23. Alusine Kargbo on April 9, 2020 at 8:28 am

    Huawei Nova 5T is what?

  24. shihlin1 on April 9, 2020 at 8:32 am

    The LG Stylus 5 SUCKS !! It shouldn’t even be on this list.

  25. Hair hair on April 9, 2020 at 8:33 am

    I recommend vivo y11

  26. Samuels Guitar-song-Covers on April 9, 2020 at 8:33 am

    Can’t afford $170. This is mid-budget. Sorry I ain’t rich

  27. 3MAR00SS on April 9, 2020 at 8:34 am

    3a a50 and redmi not8 best of the best

  28. Wojak Feels on April 9, 2020 at 8:35 am

    I completely disagree all these are "budget phones". I think anything under $200 would be considered that. The A50 was $300 MSRP. I’d agree the A10 or maybe even the A20 is considered budget, but not the the A50. The pixel is definitely NOT a budget phone.

  29. Stephen Louden on April 9, 2020 at 8:36 am

    Find a deal on a phone and plan you an afford with the phone including specs you desire most. That’s all that matters. Best advice is to switch to another carrier during a holiday promotion to save the most…like I did.. Picked up a Note 10+ for 500$ when I switched.. So to everyone shipping, be patient and always ask what promo or deal is available. Good luck

  30. Hadrian Xx on April 9, 2020 at 8:38 am

    These are not budget phones!

  31. Jeruel Remoquillo on April 9, 2020 at 8:39 am

    Realme 5 pro?

  32. doc25phd on April 9, 2020 at 8:41 am

    budget phones are around £50 not £150-£200

  33. SuperSix Delta on April 9, 2020 at 8:41 am

    Redmi Note 8 Pro is $300.00 here in Australia and the Pixel 3a is over $500.00. I know which one I’ll be ignoring.

  34. Samuel Oyem on April 9, 2020 at 8:42 am

    Among budget phones Infinix with mediatek processors has done a really great job.

  35. Xal Ahdi on April 9, 2020 at 8:42 am

    Budget is like $150 or less man… these phones are $200+

  36. Matthew Demonroe on April 9, 2020 at 8:43 am

    Im pretty sure htc is still under radar and conteact to build the pixel phones

  37. Dyendil on April 9, 2020 at 8:44 am

    Pixel 3a specs are worse then most. Why is it number one? Honor 8x has better specs and way cheaper… I don’t get it.

  38. Roberto Rodríguez on April 9, 2020 at 8:44 am

    the xiaomi has a mediatek processor; why did you mention a snapdragon 800 series processor?

  39. kouzou8 on April 9, 2020 at 8:45 am

    How can you talk about budget phones and not include a Huawei one? The reason they’ve have reached at the top as a tech company is because they have specialized on delivering quality on a budget.

  40. LasagnaKat on April 9, 2020 at 8:45 am

    Number 3 should’ve been at least iPhone 7/7plus. Not the greatest specs, but definitely has a very powerful processor and decent camera for only 1-2 hundred today

  41. PJR7 on April 9, 2020 at 8:45 am

    Budget phone video without the actual prices 🤔

  42. matrix 2 on April 9, 2020 at 8:46 am

  44. Richy One on April 9, 2020 at 8:47 am

    A budget phone in under $100 dollars ..

  45. Aldred De jesus on April 9, 2020 at 8:48 am

    hello why no samsung galaxy a70

  46. E schaefer on April 9, 2020 at 8:48 am

    Just got a Motorola G7 Optimo Maxx and I love it. Large, nice looking, long battery life and quick. Most of these phones all look nice but are super slippery and really need a case for a more secure grip.

  47. Andre Nunes on April 9, 2020 at 8:49 am

    Razer Phone 2 if you’re willing to pay 400. I got mine for 300 when it went on sale.

  48. HavocEnzo on April 9, 2020 at 8:49 am

    These are totally not "budget phones"

  49. shihlin1 on April 9, 2020 at 8:50 am

    The Moto G7 has appeared on just about every budget and mid-range list. No surprise there !
