Reviewing the best budget smartphones with a price under £200 here in the UK, for Spring 2022. I’ve fully tested a selection of favourite cheap phones including the Moto G31, Xiaomi Poco X3 Pro and Redmi Note 11, Nokia G50 and G21, plus other top affordable phones. Check out my unboxing and reviews right here on Tech Spurt to see more on the gaming, camera, battery life and beyond.
My reviews start with Motorola mobiles, including the Moto G31 with its OLED screen (a rare feature at this budget price). It’s one of the best for media fans, despite the limited performance. Alternatively the Moto G50 and G22 are also great options.
The Nokia G21 and G1 are the best for stock Android fans who want the reassurance of future updates. Meanwhile Xiaomi has several smartphones in this round-up of the best budget blowers in 2022, including the Redmi Note 11. One of my personal favourites with fairly dependable camera tech, aside from the poor video recording support.
Don’t sleep on Poco either – that X3 Pro is still an absolute blinder, while the Poco M4 Pro 5G will suit those on a strict budget who demand strong specs.

Technology, Prophecy, and Interactivity
Until recently I was expecting a whole new age of interactivity; But with the smart phone, the technology universe seems to have hit a wall; New tools are added, but no new metaphors; I get the feeling that we are re-hashing low-graphic games from the 80’s; This is what formerly would be called the “Emerging Age of Interactivity”; But which now seems like the emerging age of obscure prophecies about when and if the effulgent dreams of technology will ever be fulfilled with satisfaction;E-Reader Sales In Decline
