Today we have such a wide range of products, that every customer has a choice of a variety of phones, whether he wants to spend $100 or $1000.

If you are in the lookout for a smartphone, here are some mid ranged mobile phones that are really worth their price.

Samsung Galaxy 3

Samsung Galaxy 3If you are looking for something that is hassle free and tried and tested, then Samsung Galaxy 3 is the safest bet. The Samsung Galaxy 3 comes with the latest Android Jelly Bean OS and is geared with Exynos 4122 chipset that holds a Quad core 1.4 GHz Cortex A9 processor and a Mali-400MP GPU  making it a powerful phone . It comes equipped with GPS, WIFI and Bluetooth 4.0. The Galaxy 3 boasts a 1 GB RAM and 16 GB of internal space; which may be a little less, but the phones comes with a Micro SD slot. The Galaxy 3 also sports an 8 mega pixel camera and a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen for crisp sharp images. It has a Li-Ion 2100 mAh battery, which can give up to 21 hours of talk time on 2G.

Panasonic P51

Panasonic P51The Panasonic P51 is a standard smartphone powered with the Android v4.2 Jelly Bean OS, and is paired with a Quad-core 1.2 GHz processor and a 1 GB RAM. One of the key features in this phone is that it can accommodate two working SIMs, which is a popular pick if you want to avail different services from different network providers. The Panasonic P51 also comes equipped with an 8 MP camera, WIFI support, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS support and a Micro SD slot. The only disappointment in the phone is that it comes with only 4 GB internal memory, which is quiet little in comparison to others in the market.

LG Nexus 4

LG Nexus 4The elegant LG Nexus 4 is quite an impressive phone. Powered by a Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon chipset coupled with a Quad-core 1.5 GHz processor, the Nexus 4 is loaded with a 16 GB internal memory, comes with a 2GB RAM (which is pretty neat) and has the latest version of the Android software. The phone also comes loaded with other necessities like WIFI, Bluetooth4.0, GPS support and wireless charging. The pit fall with this piece is that is does not have a Micro SD slot, and its Li-Po 2100 mAh battery is non-removable.

Nokia Lumia 520

Nokia Lumia 520If you are tired of just Android phones and want to try out a new OS, well here’s your opportunity. Introducing the only Windows OS phone in this list is the Nokia Lumia 520. This set comes geared with Qualcomm MSM8227 chipset with a Dual-core 1 GHz processor and Adreno 305 GPU. The 520 has an allotted 8 GB of internal space, which is extendable via a Micro SD card. It has, however, a fairly low RAM- 512 MB, but that doesn’t take away from the snappy performance of the phone. Bottom line the Nokia Lumia 520 price is fairly reasonable, and can be purchased at below $160, what more does one need!

iPhone 4

iPhone 4For people looking for a phone on a budget, Apple almost never makes it to the list. But if you are still keen on an Apple phone and are willing to compromise just a little, you can surely get one under a budget, and the iPhone 4 is one phone that makes the perfect fit. The iPhone 4 is a fairly decent phone, with all the glitz and glamour that comes with the Apple tag. Compact, aluminium unibody with snappy responses, a 1 GHz Cortex-A8 processor and PowerVR SGX535 GPU along with 16 GB storage with 512 MB RAM, which may seem a little lesser as compared to other phones, but on its own is a worthy contender. The iPhone 4 boasts a 5 megapixel camera and at a price of $400  it is not a bad deal at all.
