Three Great Budget Camera Phones in 2021

So it’s time to get a new phone. We’ve all been there, and, news flash, we’re all going to be there again at one point or another. But the thing about the times is that they’re pretty tough, and not everyone can afford to splurge on the latest iPhone out there. Others just really don’t need that much from their phone, which is commendable. And yet, if there’s one thing we would all like to have on our phones, it’s a great camera. So, we thought to ourselves, why not compile a brief list of some of the most budget-friendly high-quality camera phones out there? So that’s, ugh… what we did.

Boasting one of the best bang-for-your-buck cameras currently available in the market, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro is definitely an option budget buyers should consider. It’s worth mentioning that its most glaring faults are its lack of support for 5G data speed innate advertisements in the phone’s user interface.

Okay, so we know we just said that not everyone can afford the latest iPhone, but that statement may just not hold true for the iPhone SE. The iPhone SE is one of those rare occurrences of Apple releasing a budget iPhone that’s actually really good. While the iPhone SE does pale in comparison to other iPhones’ cameras, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bad considering that iPhones have notoriously great cameras.

The Pixel 4A may just be the quintessential Google Phone experience for those of us on a budget. It’s a great Android phone for anyone looking for a great camera, guaranteed software updates, and storage space. But there’s no such thing as a perfect phone: the Google Pixel 4A, unfortunately, doesn’t support 5G data speeds. All things considered, still an incredibly viable option.
