Reviewing the best mid-range Android smartphones of 2023 so far with my favourite camera tech, top gaming performance and brilliant battery life. For a budget of around £300-£500 UK you can grab the Pixel 7a, Samsung’s Galaxy A54 5G, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus and plenty more mid-range phones. These are the best budget-friendly mobiles I’ve personally reviewed here on Tech Spurt!
If you’re after an even cheaper handset, check out my reviews and round-ups of the greatest Android smartphones under £300 and £200 too.
Manufacturers like Google, Nothing, Samsung, Xiaomi and Realme all offer a selection of compelling smartphones at a mid-range asking price. The Pixel 7a is still the best around for camera performance but rivals like the OnePlus Nord 2T and Samsung’s Galaxy A54 5G aren’t far behind. The Nothing Phone 1 & 2 offer unique features like that Glyph lighting, plus premium bits such as wireless charging.
Meanwhile the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Plus is a bit of a mouthful but also a great mid-range smartphone, boasting impressive specs for a budget-friendly cost. For less cash you can also grab the regular Pro (check out my full comparison review to see how they stack up). And that Poco F5 Pro is one of my favourites for gaming at this price point.
So many to consider, so which is your personal favourite mid-range mobile?
