While you cannot expect too much from a $199.99 smartphone, such as a waterproof rating or wireless charging,
the Samsung A14 5G packs enough remarkable features into its moderately-priced body to make our list of the best phones for less than $500.
The OnePlus 10T 5G is located near the summit of the OnePlus product line, just below the flagship OnePlus 11,
and this deputy is eager to perform as well as its superior, albeit for a lower price of $499.99 for the 8 GB model.
The Moto G Stylus 5G is notable for its stylus, which is included in the $499 bundle but can be purchased separately for $179.99.
Although the Motorola Moto G Stylus 5G has a 48-megapixel main sensor, it is not particularly adept at capturing close-ups or images in low light.
As 5G connectivity becomes more widespread, cheaper phones are beginning to support it,
and the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G offers quicker networking speeds for approximately $300 – albeit with a few drawbacks.
However, this is not the case, as the Nord N20 5G is a more potent budget phone with an extremely affordable price of $284.99.
The phone's storage is a respectable 128 GB, expandable to 512 GB, and it has 6 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 695 SoC, making it fast enough to operate the majority of applications and games.
The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G is an affordable, all-inclusive solution that meets the needs of contemporary lifestyles.
This is the best value smartphone Samsung currently produces and the best smartphone available for less than $500.
