Best cheap Samsung phones 2023


Samsung is the largest Android manufacturer by some margin, and the South Korean brand has managed to extend its lead over the last two years. That’s largely driven by best-sellers in the entry-level and budget Galaxy A series, with Samsung now offering a diverse portfolio of devices that start at just $159 and go all the way to $1,899. 

If you’re looking to pick up a Samsung phone on a budget, there’s never been a better time. The latest Galaxy A series combines powerful hardware with a lot of features that have traditionally been limited to Samsung’s costlier phones. So without further ado, these are the best budget Samsung phones.
