Each year, a new smartphone is released and creates a new demand for an extremely expensive product. Most times, the average consumer buys a phone with more capabilities than they’ll ever need, just because it’s the latest and greatest.

It can be hard to find other unlocked smartphone options when the media is filled with just two brands. But smartphones still meet one basic need – communicating. Depending on who, how often and where you communicate, different smartphones will fit your lifestyle. We’ve compiled a comparison of budget-friendly smartphones that can fit into every lifestyle.
