Best Midrange Smartphones from $200 to $400

February 2018 Edition

When premium phones are out of financial reach and entry-level handsets just don’t make your cut, something in between is the next best thing. This is our updated list of the best midrange smartphones retailing from US$ 200 to US$ 400.

Formulating this category was tricky, since you can’t set an exact price and some of these devices are, in fact, the flagship phones of their respective brands. To simplify things, we chose a price range that simply sits between our other lists for best budget, upper-midrange, and premium smartphones.

Here they are in no particular order:

Huawei Nova 2i / Honor 9i / Mate 10 Lite ($290)

Huawei once again confuses us with their elaborate naming scheme, but one thing is for certain: The Nova 2i is easily one of the best smartphones you can find in this price range. A total of four cameras (two in front and two at the back) and a near-borderless display are standout features at this level.

ASUS ZenFone Max Plus ($229)

Bringing together a near-borderless display. large battery, and dual cameras to a single midrange smartphone is a generous proposition. ASUS made that happen with the ZenFone Max Plus, and it’s been turning out well so far. While it may not have a model number to its name, this handset still has the latest software tricks from ASUS.

Xiaomi Mi A1 ($230)

Putting stock Android on a Xiaomi handset is a match made in heaven. Being the first of its kind, the Mi A1 offers consistent software updates, a surprisingly good dual-camera setup, and the great battery life you’d expect from this brand. This is the phone for Xiaomi fans and Android purists alike!

OPPO F5 ($315)

When you’re after great-looking selfies without having to spend on a premium handset, anything OPPO throws at this segment is a sure-fire bet. This season, the OPPO F5 makes the strongest statement for flawless portraits while offering a near-borderless display and solid overall specs.

Vivo V7 ($300)

Although the Vivo V7+ came first and is considered more feature-packed, the V7 is a much better deal in our eyes and deserves this spot more. A 24-megapixel front-facing camera with Face Beauty 7.0 software and midrange Snapdragon 450 processor make this pretty phone even hotter.
