Flagship Level Phones Under $300 In 2020


All you need is a smartphone and an internet connection provided by an internet service provider in my area and you have the world, literally in the palm of your hands.

Smartphones are constantly rising in popularity and demand, encouraging smartphone companies to invest more and more into their products. Larger batteries, extra cameras, higher resolution screens, stronger than necessary processors, and many other gimmicks you don’t need.

This led to a massive increase in prices. Phones like Apple and Samsung went up to $1500, a ridiculous price tag to pay for a smartphone. With such ridiculous price tags, it was natural people would switch to older models or go for more budget-friendly options, which is a rising market on its own.
