'best sub-$200 smartphones'
'The Moto G remains the only phone we've given 10/10 and is still one of the best cheap phones you can buy. '
'Such a sharp screen makes small text easily readable in the browser.'
'Similar to the Moto X, the phone sports a curved back for a comfy grip, along with sturdy Corning Gorilla glass and a splashproof body. '
'Disappointing battery life'
'The Lumia 830 is, mostly, a very good phone, but before you buy you need to make peace with some tricky weaknesses. '
'There is very little the Nokia Lumia 830 got wrong.'
'Thanks to the arched nature of the phone, it ergonically contours in our hand to provide a natural grip.
'The build quality is close to top notch and it really does feel like a smaller One M8, although I did find the nanoSIM tray on the left of the device didn't sit completely flush with the case.'
'The HTC One Mini 2 is a nice phone, but at launch it's a little expensive. '
'Granted, it's not a phone that stands out from the crowd but one that looks solid, dependable and by no means cheap.'
'A Killer Mid-Range Smartphone'
'8 GB of built-in memory, expandable via the newly added microSD card slot.'
'Still the best budget Android smartphone'
'New, improved Windows Phone 8.1.'
'The screen disappoints next to the best Android phones at the price, but otherwise this is a likeable phone for those on a budget.'
'As a low-end phone, things are quite basic with an LED-less rear camera, a rear-facing mono speaker and a microUSB charging port at the bottom. '
'As we’ve seen on Android phones packing this chip, the handset can cope reasonably well with even fairly flashy games and intensive apps. '
'The LG G2's display is very bright, and it's certainly very readable in bright daylight.'
'It's thin enough to fit into your pocket without too much fuss. .'
'The display remains cool to the touch.'
'Text on the G2 looks incredibly sharp, and it makes for a really great viewing experience.'
'Lower screen res than rivals.'
'Night shots are devastatingly noisy, and contrast issues plight shots in even the most ideal of lighting set ups.'
'Mixed battery performance.'
'Bad. Buttons on rear.'
'Using a large screen and flashy design means the Xperia M2 can easily pass for a top-end phone at a glance. '
'We found that it could last for two days of normal use between charging. '
'Having a 4.8-inch display is great, but you miss out on the pristine, sharp look you get from a 720p phone like the the 4G Motorola Moto G or Alcatel One Touch Idol S. '
