9 cheap alternatives to the iPhone that are almost as good
You no longer have to spend a fortune to get a great smartphone.
Many major Android phone manufacturers now make phones that are almost as good as high-end devices like the Galaxy S6 or the iPhone 6, but cost significantly less.
Below are some of the best phones that are good enough to get you by without breaking the bank.
Motorola Moto G LTE (Unlocked) and Moto E (Unlocked)
The latest Moto G with LTE comes with a good 720p 4.5-inch screen and a microSD port so you can store more music or photos. It also runs an unmodified version of Android for snappy performance.
The Moto E is the low-end model, as it has a 540p 4.5-inch screen, but it's still perfectly capable as a smartphone, and it has a microSD port for more storage, as well as LTE.
Both phones work on most networks if you put in a SIM card.
Huawei P8 Lite (Unlocked)
Huawei's P8 Lite is a good-looking phone with a metal border that gives it a premium look and feel compared with most mid-range devices, which tend to be plastic only. It can either have two SIM cards, or one SIM card and a microSD card for expandable storage.
Samsung Galaxy Alpha (AT&T)
The Alpha looks positively premium with its metal border. It also has a sharp, bright, and colorful 720p 4.7-inch display, as well as LTE and a snappy processor inside.
Price: $199.99 without a contract
