Life is practically impossible without a good smartphone today. It is especially true for post-pandemic life. Everyone needs to stay online and if you don’t you might miss out on the next big thing. So far the primary way for everyone to achieve that is through a smartphone. The best phones should offer performance and be affordable. ( 5 best phones of that sort are mentioned here).

Despite the phone being such a necessity, there is a limit to how much one can afford to spend on it. Let us be honest, we all talk about our preference between Apple and Samsung and which is the best. We often word our opinion about every year’s flagships from every noteworthy company but in reality, we cannot afford these brands or their flagships. Well, at least not all of us.

The reason may vary from person to person. You may be a student who just can not spare so much on just a phone or a single parent who has kids to take care of or just anyone to whom spending a whopping $1000 on a single phone just does not make any sense. Regardless of your condition, the situation is the same.

Luckily, we are here with the solution. We have compiled a list of the 5 best such phones which are budget-friendly and can fulfill the needs of today’s consumer

Here are 5 best phones that you can buy for just under 400 Dollars:


Realme GT Master edition is a good-looking phone with a good camera set-up. In addition to 8 GBs of RAM and 256 GBs of storage, having the Snapdragon 778G chipset gives it a seamless performance especially while running most of the popular games on high graphics.

It boasts a  Super AMOLED display with a frequency of 120hz. With a battery capacity of 4250 mAh, it won’t be hungry often. When it does get hungry, it will be full rather quickly because it comes with 63W fast charging which fully charges it in a little over 30 minutes.

The specs of this phone are the point. The only problem one might have regarding this phone is the company. Realme is a relatively new company so it might be hard for the customers to put their trust in it. However, as far as this product is concerned there is no margin for any sort of doubt regarding the value this phone provides the user.

With an Antutu rating of 541.610, it is better than 89% of phones out there.

2. XIAOMI 11 LITE/5G      $300

With the same chipset as GT master, Xiaomi 11 lite/5G provides some smooth performance. Options are also available in terms of the models and storage. The original model comes in 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB RAM and 128/256 GB storage options.

AMOLED display with cornering gorilla glass with 90Hz frequency is more than sufficient for everyday use and even decent gaming.

It also comes with a 4250 mAh battery and 33W fast charging. Its stand-out feature is its top-notch power efficiency. Its front camera is as good as the GT and the selfie camera also performs well for almost $100 less.

Xiaomi is a well-reputed company and they have put forth this phone intending to provide the buyer value for their money.

It has an Antutu rating of 355.871 making it better than 81% of phones in the market.

3.POCO F3              $350

My favorite of all the phones on this list has to be POCO F3. The reason being POCO F3 is excellent for high-quality gaming. Other phones on the list also serve the purpose but the F3 is exceptional in this regard. Snapdragon 870 chipset and OMLED 120 Hz display give the most magnificent gaming experience that one can get for the price.

It also comes with a 4520 mAh battery and amazing 67W fast charging. Cameras both main and selfie will not disappoint.

I have personally seen this device in action and let me just say that it will not let you down.

Antutu’s score of 714.008 set it apart from 94% of the competition.

4. SAMSUNG A52s               $400

Next on the list is Samsung A52s. It is a bit of a controversial phone as many consider it overpriced but considering what it brings to the table it might be a little too cruel to say that.

It has Snapdragon 778g chipset same as GT and XI 11 lite and 8GB RAM so the speed is not an issue here. Moreover, it also comes it a 64 MP main camera and a 32 MP wide selfie camera.

As far as gaming is concerned, it is one of the best mid-range gaming phones out there.

The power department is also well-taken care of with a 4500 mAh battery and 23W fast charging.

Samsung is one the biggest name in the mobile industry and is very well reputed among the masses. So this phone could be the best option for people who are looking for brand value as well as performance.

An Antutu rating of 487.190 shows it to be better than 88% of devices.

5. XIAOMI 11 T              $399

Finally, we have Xiaomi 11 T. this phone runs a Dimensity 1200 chipset which is comparable to Snapdragon 778. However, Density 1200 is known for giving better performance in gaming.

With a big battery capacity of 5000mah (biggest on this list), AMOLED 120Hz display, and the mentioned chipset this is the best phone this list has to offer for all the gamers out there.

There is also an exceptional 108MP rear camera and a decent 16MP selfie camera.

While it may not be the prime option for the average user due to the chipset but is the go-to phone if you are serious about gaming.

It has an Antutu score of 575.899 and is considered better than 91% of devices.
