Honor View 10 (save £80)

Currently ranked 8th in our Top 10 smartphone list, the Honor View 10 was already one of our top recommended budget mid-range phones. But at this £340 price point, this smartphone becomes essential for bargain hunter.

Highlights of this handset include a 5.99in 2160x1080 display, a surprisingly great twin-lens rear camera and impressively speedy internals that sail through Android Oreo.

Sony Xperia XA2 (save £100)

After slicing a hefty £100 off the price for Amazon Prime Day, Sony’s mid-range smartphone just became a whole lot more attractive.

Sure, it has a somewhat outdated design compared to its competitors, but the XA2’s fantastic 23MP camera and long-lasting 3300mAh battery more than make up for that.

Moto G6 Play (save £24)

The Moto G6 Play was such a steal on release that we were worried that Motorola might have reconsidered and doubled the price - and to be honest, the G6 Play would still be worth it.

Turns out Motorola has actually done the opposite though, reducing the price to an even more affordable £136. OK, so it’s not a huge discount, but you should count yourself lucky you’re getting such an excellent smartphone - with a brilliant battery life and slyish design - for under £150.

Huawei P Smart (save £55)

One of the best budget options if you fancy a 18:9 screen on your smartphone, the Huawei P Smart represents fantastic value.

Made from aluminium, this is no cheaply made plastic affair. It feels like a premium product, with all-round specs. Plus there’s a dual-lens rear camera, although just mind that it doesn’t have the best low-light performance.
