Whether there is a cheap and cheerful? Choosing a budget android-smartphone –



As a result of ?????? Management Selection flagship smartphone main conclusions were simple: that you liked, and then take it – by and large, did not disappoint either one.

In the public sector is different: here it is full of pitfalls. This approach makes buying more thoughtfully, though the device itself is several times cheaper.

In this article we look at smartphones android-priced about 5000 rubles.

Leading manufacturers

Yes, surprisingly, even leading manufacturers have something to offer in this price segment. True, the device characteristics are obtained with appropriate. And striking example – a smartphone Nokia X.

Nokia X

Nokia X – one of the most mysterious devices our guide. For many years, the Finnish company resisted offensive “android” in every way, sometimes just pretending it does not exist. However, in February of this year the surprise of many, a new family led by Nokia X.

officially calls the operating system Nokia Nokia X 1.0. It is quite obvious that for tiled style interface hides WP8 Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Technically gadget also carefully mimics a Windows-based device company: here set a four-screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, dual-core Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon S4 Play, 512 MB RAM and 4 GB of internal memory.

Well, the first “smartphone Nokia for Android- Applications “was a surprise proposal and to some extent even unique. However, Nokia X can not be called productive apparatus, not least because of the modest reserve of RAM. In addition, formal application store Google Play Store is not available here, which does not appreciate the potential owners. A brake and non-functional smartphone with its diagonal screen size could be smaller and lighter.

However, as the sale, neat corporate design, plenty of bright colors and (once) a resounding brand can attract many. We are your readers enthusiasts to buy this product at a price at least 4,500 rubles can not recommend.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 2

South Korean giant has captured all price niches. And in the public sector there are both relatively new model and veterans. For example, Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 was released back in 2012, but Ace Ace 3 and 4 did not bring significant improvements characteristics. Therefore, Ace 2, which is sold to this day, given the price often looks attractive than their successors.

In Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 dual-core processor installed outlandish NovaThor U8500 with Mali-400 and 768MB of RAM. On board a total of 4 GB of memory, and because of firmware problems have to dig to get the ability to install games and cache card microSD.

For Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 is available Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. A device with a 3.8-inch display (480 x 800 pixels) sold for 5000 rubles.

Samsung Galaxy Trend

Purpose Samsung Galaxy Trend becomes clear from its name – whether in the trend. In the trend of modern Android-smartphone. Visually, the device is not much different from Galaxy Ace 2, although it was imprudent to expect diversity of design engineers from Samsung.

main advantage of Samsung Galaxy Trend is a four-inch display with a resolution 480 x 800 pixels. Otherwise, everything is much simpler: a single-core processor with 1 GHz and 512 MB of RAM can only digest interface TouchWiz, multiple tabs in a browser and undemanding games.

in Russia Samsung Galaxy Trend distributed through mobile operators held shares. Its retail price without contract starts from 4000 rubles.

LG Optimus L7/L7 II

Almost at the same price (about 5000 rubles) sold just two generations LG Optimus L7. The insignificant difference in cost caused by close specifications. In both devices mounted display diagonal of 4.3 inches with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and filling budget.

In the first generation of LG Optimus L7 used single-core Qualcomm processor MSM7227A Snapdragon. We have two successor core Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon, and everywhere is outdated Cortex-A5 1 GHz. Another relative advantage fresher model – 768 MB of RAM instead of 512.

LG Optimus L7 II is available with a SIM-card and two, with the two versions differ visually from each other.

LG Optimus L5 II

Before us is another inexpensive model LG – Optimus L5 II. It has a processor of another model, MediaTek MT6575, although in general the situation is not affected: one core at a frequency of 1 GHz and 512 MB of RAM can not provide the desired performance.

As befits the rank, Optimus L5 II slightly smaller than Optimus L7 II: diagonal reduced to four inches. Resolution remains the same – 480 x 800 pixels. LG Optimus L5 II costs about 5000 rubles.

Sony Xperia E1

segment most inexpensive smartphones can be seen not only B-brands and companies from China. Someone seeking to purchase inexpensive device with a famous name plate, and then perfect Sony Xperia E1. This is a novelty in 2014, and visually it even slightly resembles the flagship of the Japanese company.

But Sony Xperia E1 technically inferior even competitors from China. Dual-core processor Qualcomm MSM8210 Snapdragon 200, Adreno 302 graphics accelerator and 512 MB of RAM will be sufficient except for the opening of the telephone book. Of course, unpretentious games on the device also started, but a greater can not count. Screen – four inches and 480 x 800 pixels.

Sony Xperia E1 could be an attractive solution for those looking for a smartphone pretty illustrious company. In other cases it is better to pay attention to its competitors.

HTC Desire V

If you’re lucky, for 5000 rubles will be able to buy even a “white» HTC Desire V, and in the major federal networks. This device is not the first freshness: it entered the market back in 2012. Two-year period could not affect the relevance of characteristics: single-core processor Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon (1 GHz), Adreno 200 graphics and 512MB RAM hardly meet the requirements in 2014.

Nevertheless, I have a HTC Desire V and dignity. The device looks neat, besides it is HTC, and for many this name is worth a lot. Someone already hooked on proprietary interface HTC Sense and is no longer a smartphone without it, so cost of devices will choose HTC Desire V.

But in all other cases it is necessary to look at the more powerful competitors.
