When you’re facing bad credit problems and need a mobile phone contract, without credit checks causing you trouble or high costs getting in the way, our guide covering the best value phones at the end of 2015 is what you need. If you already have bad credit, mobile phone contracts don’t have to be prohibitively expensive but it’s important to choose wisely. Luckily, there are plenty of affordable contract phones available that offer great value for money.
Here are our top 5 starting points if you’re looking for budget contract phone ideas:
5) EE Kestrel
This model starts from only £99 which is a great price for a 4G phone with decent specifications all round. The most common drawback is the basic design and overly simplified EE-branded operating system.
4) Huawei Ascend G7
A lesser known brand, Huawei has created the Ascend G7 taking plenty of design cues from a much more famous smartphone, which might be a positive or a negative depending on your outlook. Unlike the iPhone it’s clear you’re getting great features for a low price, although the screen resolution is perhaps the least impressive.
3) Microsoft Lumia 640
Since taking over Nokia’s line and developing a wide range of similar looking Lumia models running Windows, Microsoft have finally managed to nail down a few low cost models that don’t compromise on features. The outer design leaves a little to be desired, but the 640 has plenty of impressive specs to compensate.
2) Sony Xperia M2 Aqua
Available on some excellent value contracts at the moment, the M2 takes design inspiration from the rest of the Xperia range but without the hefty price tag. Screen quality is the biggest compromise, but the waterproof feature, battery life and Sony operating system are some of our favourite highlights.
1) Motorola Moto G (2014)
Our top pick of the budget smartphones for the end of 2015 is the Moto G, a great example of a fading brand making a new name for itself. It finds the perfect balance between decent specs and saving money, so despite a few drawbacks (no 4G and a slightly underwhelming screen), it tops our list comfortably.
We think these are some of the best starting points when you’re looking for a new budget smartphone before the end of the year, even if you’re looking for guaranteed contract phones with no credit checks. Going for a high quality budget phone that’s going to last a while is the best way to manage your future contract cost and ensure you don’t run into trouble, but getting past the first stage can still be tricky when you have poor credit history behind you.
