Android Jelly Bean
Cheap smart phones are very much in demand since the market is now ruled by the Android operating system. With all the cheap smart phones available, the cheapest that you can get is a dual-core smart phone, which runs with Android Jelly Bean 4.1 OS. After comparing all the available units in the market, it shows that this holds the title for the cheapest dual core smartphone with Jelly Bean 4.1 OS. For a Samsung Galaxy S III Mini, it only costs around £239, and that already includes a free SIM. As a good alternative, you can opt to get Google Nexus 4, which includes a quad-core processor and the latest Jelly Bean 4.2 OS for just the same retail price.
Samsung Galaxy S III
The Samsung Galaxy S III Mini is similar to the regular Galaxy SIII unit. Both have pebble-like rounded corners and bowed sides for its design. The phone has a 4-inch screen display, 8-16GB of phone storage, and 5MP for its back camera. Some of its specs include 1GB of RAM, and its camera with 1GHz dual-core processor that gets a 763-point score on Geekbench 2. Considering all these nice features, it is a sensible choice for those, who want to buy a low-cost smart phone.
Huawei Ascenda G330
A common problem with cheap smart phones is the use of an older Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS and a good example of which is the Huawei Ascenda G330. Despite this, various cheap handset models are coming out this year that already includes Android Jelly Bean 4.1 OS with a single core processor. If you want to get the best of both the worlds, you can opt for a high end smart phone that normally costs £400.
