Top 5 Cheapest Android Phones in US – June 2013

Android smartphones have become cheaper and cheaper. You can now find some of the cheapest Android phones for around $100, or less. Let’s take a look at some of the cheapest ones right now in US.

Star I9220

The Star I9220 is currently the best cheapest Android phone, that you can pick-up for $150, or less, depending on the vendor. It’s also a dual SIM phone, which are becoming increasingly more popular in the rest of the world, because it makes it easy to talk more cheaply with people in other networks, or it makes it easier to use another SIM when travelling. These are the specs of the Star I9220:

  • CPU: dual core 1 Ghz ARM Cortex A9
  • Display: 5″ TFT LCD, 800×480 resolution
  • RAM: 512 MB RAM
  • Storage:  2 GB, microSD slot (up to 32 GB)
  • Camera: 8 MP
  • Front-camera: VGA
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • OS: Android 4.0

Acer Liquid Z110

The Acer Liquid Z110 costs about $110, and it’s one of the cheapest Android phones that Acer has made that also comes with dual-SIM. It doesn’t come with Android 4.0, but Android 2.3 should be quite fast on its 1 Ghz processor:

  • CPU: single core 1 Ghz ARM Cortex A9
  • Display: 3.5″ TFT LCD, 480×320 resolution
  • RAM: 512 MB RAM
  • Storage:  4 GB, microSD slot (up to 32 GB)
  • Camera: 3 MP
  • Front-camera: No
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • OS: Android 2.3

Samsung Doubletime I857

The Samsung Doubletime i857 is a QWERTY keyboard Android phone that also sells for around $100. Android phones with physical keyboards are very rare these days. If you’re a heavy “texter” that used to have such phone, this might be a good option for you if you’re looking for one of the cheapest Android phones without a contract that has a nice keyboard. Here are some of its other specs:

  • CPU: single core 800 Mhz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1
  • Display: 3.2″ TFT LCD, 480×320 resolution
  • RAM: 256 MB RAM
  • Storage:  260 MB, microSD slot (up to 32 GB), 2 GB card included
  • Camera: 3 MP
  • Front-camera: No
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • OS: Android 2.2

LG Optimus One

The LG Optimus One was one of LG’s most popular Android smartphones, and it was also one of the first to bring the unlocked price of an Android phone to $150. Now it costs a bit less, like $130, but it’s still a pretty good value for such a low-end phone. You can see its specs below:

  • CPU: single core 600 Mhz ARM11
  • Display: 3.2″ TFT LCD, 480×320 resolution
  • RAM: 256 MB RAM
  • Storage:  170 MB, microSD slot (up to 32 GB), 2 GB card included
  • Camera: 3 MP
  • Front-camera: No
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • OS: Android 2.3

Huawei Ascend Y

Huawei has been making great progress in the smartphone market, and I believe that at least at the low-end, they’ve managed to match even companies like LG in smartphones. The Huawei Ascend Y is one such cheap Android smartphone, and its specs look pretty good, especially for the low price of around only $80:

  • CPU: single core 800 Mhz Cortex A5
  • Display: 3.2″ TFT LCD, 480×320 resolution
  • RAM: 256 MB RAM
  • Storage:  120 MB, microSD slot (up to 32 GB), 2 GB card included
  • Camera: 3 MP
  • Front-camera: No
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • OS: Android 2.3

These are some of the best and cheapest Android phones you can find right now in US for around $100 unlocked, and they should all be good choices if you don’t have a big budget for a smartphone. These type of Android phones work best as alternatives to feature phones. So if you were planning to get a feature phone for around $100, you’ll be better off buying a full Android phone, like these above. If money is no issue, then just take a look at these top Android phones for this month.
