With just a few days left to finish 2017, and it's about time we did a little recap. Here's a good look at the best smartphones that we can get for less than 300 euros today.

In this sense, we find ourselves diving directly into the most premium mid-range of the big telephony brands. Between 200 and 300 euros - about $ 250 / $ 350 - you can get really attractive and powerful smartphones, managing in some aspects to exceed the specifications of many high-end terminals.

The 10 best smartphones for less than 300 euros (2017)

The truth is that it has not been easy to compile this list. We are at a time when the proposals are almost endless, so some terminals have had to be left out of this top 10. Phones as interesting as the Xiaomi Mi Note 3, the Redmi 4X, the VOGA V or the Asus Zenfone 3, among others. But let's stop rhetoric and go to the nougat.

Xiaomi Mi A1

We started the list of the best mobile phones under € 300 with one of this year's big hits, the Xiaomi Mi A1. Xiaomi's first pure Android launched for the European market has a Full HD screen with 403ppi and 450 nits. You saw a Snapdragon 625 Octa Core 2.0 GHz processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space expandable.

All this with Android One as the operating system, a 3080mAh battery and one of the best cameras, without discussion, within the mid-range, with a 12.0MP + 12.0MP dual rear lens with f / 2.6 aperture and PDAF. A terminal with capital letters.

Price: 221.31 euros, about $ 260 to change.


The UMIDIGI S2 Pro presented this same month of December has been very loaded in all aspects. A Full HD + 2160x1080p display with Helio P25 Octa Core running at 2.6GHz, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage expandable!

If this was not enough, they have mounted a 13.0MP + 5.0MP dual rear camera with flash and autofocus, and a powerful 16.0MP front camera. All this with a battery capable of withstanding whatever is thrown at it, thanks to its 5100mAh. Definitely, one of the best mobiles for less than 300 euros.

Price: 255.10 euros, about $ 299.99 to change.

ZTE Axon 7

A chita shutting up the ZTE Axon 7 has crept into the list of the best of the year with all the right in the world. We are talking about a terminal with Snapdragon 820 at 2.15GHz, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 20.0MP rear camera and a 3250mAh battery. All this with a 5.5 ”AMOLED 2K display, USB type C, and a really remarkable sound. All this for just over 200 euros.

Price: 225.90 euros, about $ 265 to change.

Ulefone Armor 2

The Ulefone Armor 2 is probably the best rugged phone around. Not only does it have IP68 certification that ensures the integrity of the phone against shocks, water and dust. It also equips one of the most powerful hardware that we can find in an off-road smartphone. 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 4700mAh battery, 2.6GHz Helio P25 CPU and a 16.0MP rear camera. What more could you want?

As for the rest of the Ulefone Armor 2 specifications, it should be noted that it has NFC technology, dual satellite positioning system with GPS and GLONASS, SOS emergency button, USB type C and fast charging function.

Price: 201.53 euros, about $ 236.99 to change.

Huawei Honor 9

Huawei is always synonymous with quality. Although this Huawei Honor 9 was somewhat inflated in price when it came out about half a year ago, it can currently be obtained for just over 280 euros. In this way we obtain an excellent phone in terms of quality / price ratio.

In the guts of the Honor 9 we find a Kirin 960 Octa Core CPU running at 2.4GHz, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Also, equip a 12.0MP + 20.0MP dual rear camera, Full HD screen and a 3200mAh battery with USB type C and fast charging. All this with a 3D glossy curved glass finish that gives the phone a really distinguished look - yes, watch out for finger marks.

Price: 289.11 euros, about $ 339 to change.

Elephone S8

The Elephone S8 is the company's great bet for the upper-middle range. It equips the best Mediatek processor to date, the Helio X25 10-core 2.5GHz, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage and Android 7.1. All accompanied by a great 21.0MP camera and a powerful 4000mAh battery. In terms of design, the most striking thing is its 6-inch frameless display with 2K resolution which is a delight.

Price: 204.08 euros, about $ 239 to change.


Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017)

The best Samsung terminal for the mid-range is called Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) and has a premium finish typical of high-end terminals -remember that we are facing a phone of less than 300 euros-. If to this we add a Exynos 7870 Octa Core 1.6GHz, 3GB of RAM, 5.5 ”Super AMOLED screen, NFC, a 13.0MP camera with f / 1.7 aperture and a 3600mAh battery, we already have a full-fledged mid-range. The 16GB of internal storage falls a bit short, but nothing that can't be fixed with a good SD card.

Price: 259.90 euros, about $ 305 to change.


If we are looking for a phone with a great battery with a price below 300 euros, we cannot overlook the AGM X1. A terminal 5400mAh with fast charge that promises an autonomy of up to 3 days. Hardly bearable.

As for the rest of the features, we find a phone with a Snapdragon 617 Octa Core CPU at 1.5GHz, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable internal storage. It has a Full HD screen, 13.0MP dual camera and IP68 water protection. The ideal phone for long trips, in which charging the mobile battery can be difficult.

Price: 244.65 euros, about $ 287 to change.

Apple iPhone 6 (Refurbished and certified)

One of the great sections of Amazon is its collection of refurbished iPhones.. They are second-hand phones that have been reviewed, tested and certified that also have at least one year of warranty.

In this way we can get a reconditioned iPhone 6 for less than 300 euros. A compact and highly effective terminal, with a 4.7-inch screen, Dual-core 1.4 GHz Typhoon CPU, PowerVR GX6450 GPU, 1GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage, 8.0MP camera (f / 2.2, 29mm, 1/3 ″, 1.5 µm) and 1810mAh battery. Its specs are the lowest on the entire list without a doubt. However, it is still one of the best options to make the jump to Apple for a much more affordable price.

Price: 299 euros, about $ 350 to change.

Moto G5s Plus

Motorola's most attractive bet for the mid-range is called Moto G5s Plus, a terminal with a metallic unibody design, 5.5 ”Full HD screen, processor Snapdragon 625 Octa Core 2.0GHz, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 13.0MP dual rear camera and Turbo Power fast charging battery.

All with a very clean and light version of Android Nougat that provides a most pleasant user experience, and a fast fingerprint reader like few others.

Price: 221.99 euros, about $ 260 to change.
