    "Nokia has been known for good-quality cheap phones for a long time, and Lumia 635 doesn't disappoint either. Personally, I don't like the OS and the looks of the phone, so I would much rather go with a cheap Samsung instead."

    "I was looking for a cheap smartphone for my grandma and looked into Jitterbug Flip for a while. There're definitely better alternatives on the market. The phone is very very cheaply made and you can find a comparable Samsung for about the same price."

    "Jitterbug Smart is a great option for people who want a very simple and inexpensive smart phone. It is especially good for older people, or people with limited dexterity. The screen is a very simple format, and there are even health apps built into the phone, including access to a medical alert system for emergencies. I got my grandmother a Jitterbug Smart. She loves it and it makes us feel more comfortable that she can stay in contact."

    "I admit I was skeptical, but this phone pressed all the right buttons for me. I was looking for a relatively inexpensive smartphone to have as a backup in case of an emergency, and the BLU Life One X is perfect for that. It feels sturdy, and it should have plenty of power for whatever you need it to do."

    "The Moto G5 has all the fetures of a big flagship mobile but for a price that manageble. It has Dual Sim card slots. I didnt understand that at first and found that you could only use one card at a time with one card being a 2g connection. It is Open GSM so i can take it to what carrier i like most. Having the cpu and ram that it does makes it really responsiv. Not to mention the battery last ages and it has the latest OS."

    "It's not necessarily an inexpensive phone. There are other phones sold that are much cheaper than this phone that can give you the same features. This phone is nice though. I like having the option of a removable battery for purposes of replacement. I can replace it rather than having the phone fixed or replaced. It's more convenient for me. There is enough memory on the phone for my needs so i'm happy with that. The phone felt slim which is also nice. I don't like a thick phone. It's easy to carry and store for when not in use. I also take a lot of pictures and the camera worked well for me as well. Overall, it's an affordable phone and one that suited my needs if you're looking for something simple with no bells and whistles. "

    "This Samsung mobile is worthable for its price and quality. But its performance was not so good. The mobile does not have current updates if you are not an AT&T user. The device is also unlocked for international use."

    "The iphone is the answer to all problems. The bigger screen allows you to utilize the calendar easier so you never miss an appointment again. You want to take a killer selfie and make your ex jealous, this phone is the answer. The camera is the best in a phone so far and allows you to complete several edits. You will also never be late to work again as you can set alarms for every minute. The games are a much better resolution and the quick operating system allows you to beat your opponent. "
