Best phones under PS200:

Realme 5 Pro Redmi Note 8T Motorola Moto G8

Honor 9x Samsung Galaxy A2 0e Nokia 6.2

Editor’s note: We will update this list of very good telephones under PS200 as new telephones launch.

1. Realme 5 Pro

Realme is a relatively unknown symbol in the UK but the Oppo offshoot has been humbly crafting some of the best budget phones in recent years. That includes the Realme 5 Pro, which is easily one of the best telephones under PS200 to date.

The Realme 5 Pro races on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 712 SoC which employs it ahead of most of the other phones on this list in terms of raw power. It also has a large, near bezel-less 6.3 -inch Full HD+ display with a waterdrop notch, a meaty 4,035 mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 fast billing, a rear fingerprint sensor, up to 8GB of RAM, and expandable storage.

That’s all without mentioning the quad camera( that’s right, four cameras !) on the rear — a 48 MP main sensor, 8MP ultra wide-angle lens, 2MP macro camera, and 2MP depth sensor.

The only potential deal breaker is the software. Realme’s ColorOS bark leaves a lot to be desired with confusing menus and bloat. If you can put up with it though, the Realme 5 Pro is pound for pound easily the best value phone on this list.

At the time of writing the Realme 5 Pro is retailing for PS209. You could technically import it and compensate in Euros or wait for a sale to get onto under that supernatural PS200 mark, but candidly, this is one case where I’d recommend deforming the regulation and only compensating the additional PS9. It’s worth it.

2. Redmi Note 8T

The Redmi Note 8T is the latest in Xiaomi’s budget Redmi line, and it gives solid recital at an enticing toll moment. Coupled with a quad-camera setup, headphone jack, microSD card slot, huge battery life, and fast billing, it’s a welcome addition to the increasingly gathered sub-PS2 00 market.

The Redmi Note 8T is no slouch either with a nice Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and a large 4,000 mAh battery.

Like the Realme 5 Pro, the Redmi Note 8T also has a 48 MP main camera, an ultra wide-angle lens, a magnitude sensor, and a macro camera. It also has a similarly contentious application bark, with Xiaomi’s MIUI being something of an acquired taste.

However, for just PS169, the Redmi Note 8T is one of the best cheap phones in the UK by a wide margin.

3. Motorola Moto G8

Motorola’s G-series telephones have been a mainstay of the UK’s mid-range for years now and the Moto G8 is another winner for the venerable plan family.

The low-resolution 6.4 -inch display isn’t the best out there and the Snapdragon 655 won’t win any hurry experiments, but the Moto G8 does come with a few unexpected perks like a triple camera( standard, ultra-wide, and macro ), a fingerprint sensor, and a clean application experience.

For PS179 it’s hard to is our opinion that the Moto G7 Power isn’t one of the best telephones under PS200.

4. Honor 9x

Honor 9X back full

There are plenty of enormous Honor telephones available in the UK, but the Honor 9X is the best you can get under PS200.

The selfie camera is also a pop-up shooter which leaves the 6.59 -inch display uninterrupted by notches or perforate openings. There’s too a microSD slot, a USB-C port, and a headphone jack, as well as a sizeable 4,000 mAh battery.

There’s technically an modernized explanation available in the form of the Honor 9X Pro, however, the Pro variant needs Google Mobile Assistance and so doesn’t officially support the Play Store or Google apps. Stick with the original.

5. Samsung Galaxy A2 0e

Samsung’s entry-level telephones ought to have moderately median for years, but the A streak has offered some enormous designs recently. Example in part: the Galaxy A2 0e.

The phone’s 5.8 -inch display, which is mostly uninterrupted except for a small waterdrop notch, makes it one of the more pocket-friendly alternatives on this list.

On the camera front you get standard and ultra-wide shooters on the back and an 8MP selfie snapper. It too passes Samsung’s One UI software, which is about as feature-packed as they come

There are more powerful alternatives on such lists, but for PS169 or below there’s plenty to like about Samsung’s inexpensive phone.

6. Nokia 6.2

It’s hard to choose simply one phone from Nokia‘s increasingly mystifying portfolio of mid-range and entry-level telephones, but the Nokia 6.2 just about peripheries out the competition right now.

The Nokia 6.2 may not have the raw power of some other telephones under PS200, but it appears far more premium thanks to its high-tech polymer build. You too get a Zeiss triple-camera with a 16 MP main shooter, 5MP profundity sensor, and an 8MP wide-angle camera.

Throw in 64 GB of expandable storage, 4GB RAM, and the near-stock Android One software and you’ve got yourself a great phone for PS179.
