Today, it is very important to own one of the best camera phones, since for most of us our smartphone is also the only camera we possess. It is also the only truly handy camera when you come across a memorable situation or an unforgettable landscape you wish to immortalize.
Apple iPhone SE (2020)
Not all of us can afford a high-end phone like the Samsung Galaxy S series or Apple’s iPhones, but the good news is that you don’t have to spend $1,000 to get a phone that combines top-notch performance with a beautiful design; in fact, there are plenty of mid-range devices that provide an equally excellent experience. Some of them cost half the price or even less. Check out our rankings of the best smartphones that cost between $300 and $600.
Looking to buy the best phone in 2021 means searching for a device that should last you a couple of years at the very least. The update interval for new smartphones is ever-growing and for a valid reason: even in the low-end market segment it has become increasingly difficult to buy a piece of junk. In other words, you don’t have to splurge in order to get a good phone. The truly daunting task, however, is to decide which, among all those in existence, is the perfect phone for you.
The new Apple iPhone SE (2020) is a wolf in sheep’s clothing: performance and camera wise it goes toe to toe with all other competitors in its price range – despite having only one camera, portraits with a bokeh effect are amazingly beautiful. The battery life is good but not great and Internet connections via LTE and Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi 6) are very fast. Both the design and display are a bit dated but if you are looking for a compact iPhone that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, this is your best option.
