Unlocked cell phones for the budget conscious are not a rarity and there are some pretty useful quad band models working on the GSM network for just under $100. Some of these mobiles also offer dual sim options, camera, MP4 and Bluetooth.

These less expensive unlocked phones, are feature phones and canâ??t offer you 3G internet speeds like smart phones, but the best of them however do support Java applications and allow basic web browsing.

Whatâ??s more, you no longer need to feel humbled by the design of these handsets for the best cheap unlocked phones even come with flip or slide panels or QWERTY keyboards embedded in a sleek design.

Photos lack detail.

It looks great, has class-leading battery life and we love its light, bloatware-free approach to Android.

Surprisingly for a Rs. 5,000 phone, the Canvas Spark 3 looks and feels pretty good.

Despite this, the Moto E remains an impressive phone that puts rival low-cost smartphones well and truly in the shade.

Low light photographs are quite bad.
