    Helpful information, but I wish you and other reviewers would approach each phone exactly the same. Sometimes you mention a feature for one phone but don’t mention its presence or absence for another. The information is not presented in the same order for each phone, either. It would be better to decide which features are important to highlight for all the phones, go in order by feature, and explain for each phone if the feature is present and its characteristics. After your speedy review, I have been left still not sure whether some phones have head phone jacks, for example, which is something I want. I wish all the reviewers could slow down in their delivery and leave out superlatives. An example is the battery. Some you give specs for and say how long a charge will last, then for another, you just say its "solid." I am having such a hard time deciding on an affordable replacement phone, and no reviews have yet helped me make a decision. Thank you for your effort, though.

    I was expecting to see phones between $50 and $150. (The cheapest one on the list is $179.) I think your definition of "Budget" and "Cheap" are very different from mine.

    Budget and mid-range are two different things. Waste of time

    Impressive review for a small channel. Thanks!

    number 5 170$ and number 1 350$, I am sorry, I just checked that and didn’t bother watching anymore, a comparison like that just doesn’t make any sense. Then you have lots of other brands that might fit in between and get better ‘points’.

    yeah ok

    There is no way a video of budget phones in 2021 can be made and the Redmi Note 10 Plus not be mentioned… hands down one of the best ‘flagship killers’ made in 2021

    The Moto G Power is a good phone
    I can attest to it
