Samsung is one of the best brands when it comes to mobile phone handsets. Given, there are problems that are unique to the phone as is with other brands, but all in all, Samsung is a good choice. The company has come up with a number of great phones, especially smart phones that have served the needs of the market. Not only are they trendy and functional, but they bring convenience and go above and beyond the basic features that one needs on a phone.
However, the phones can be quite pricey depending on what the buyer is looking for and the specifications that they would like to have on their phones. In as much as the price is determined by how long the phone has been on the market, being cheaper for phones that have been around longer and more expensive for phones that have just been released, Samsung phones still tend to be a bit higher in pricing than other brands such as Techno and HTC. So, which budget phone should one buy when looking for a Samsung?
