There’s an ever-growing army of phones - not just phones but smartphones - below the £150 mark, with at least three hands required to count recent sub-£150 mobile deals.
Here we’re focusing on the £100-150 range, with four very different phones from four very different manufacturers.
Needless to say, if you've any recommendations, or if I've missed anything obvious, feel free to chime in below. But remember: this is specifically £100-150; I'll be back soon(ish) with Five of the best mobile phones under £100.
