More and more affordable smartphones with 5G are appearing. That’s great, because with such a device you can use the 5G network, which will be a lot faster than 4G in 2022. Android Planet lists five 5G smartphones under 250 euros.
Affordable smartphones with 5G in the spotlight
5G has been available in the Netherlands since the summer of 2020, but for the time being mainly a future-proof extra. Because a crucial 5G frequency band will not become available to telecom providers until the end of 2022, the network will only then become faster than 4G. The advantage of buying a 5G smartphone now is that you are ready for that moment. It is extra nice that more and more cheap devices are suitable for 5G. 5G support will no longer be a feature that you pay extra for, but a standard feature.
Time to list five competitively priced models. Below you will find – in random order – five smartphones with 5G under 250 euros. It is good to know that the overview is not a complete test. We do, however, refer – if tested – to the review of a device.
1. Samsung Galaxy A22 5G
With the Galaxy A22 5G, Samsung also offers a competitively priced 5G smartphone with a smooth 90Hz screen. The display refreshes more times per second (90 times) than a standard 60Hz screen (60 times) and therefore looks smoother. The display is 6.6 inches large and looks sharp thanks to the full-HD resolution.
The Galaxy A22 5G has 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage memory and a sturdy 5000 mAh battery. Charging is not very fast with 15 Watt, but it does use the USB-c port.
The device has three cameras on the back and runs on Android 11. You can count on Android 12 and 13 and four years of security updates. That is exceptionally long for a budget smartphone and means that the Galaxy A22 5G is protected against solved security vulnerabilities until June 2025.
You can buy the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G separately for 229 euros or get it in combination with a subscription. Below you will find the best deals.
2. Motorola Moto G 5G
The Motorola Moto G 5G is one of Motorola’s most affordable 5G smartphones. The device has a large 5000 mAh battery, a large 6.7-inch full-HD screen and 64GB of storage.
The smartphone runs on a Snapdragon 750G processor, which is also in, for example, the OnePlus Nord CE 5G. Motorola adds 4GB of RAM. The Moto G 5G has three cameras on the back and runs on Android 11.
A serious point of attention is that the smartphone does not receive further version updates and can therefore not count on Android 12. Motorola will roll out security updates until November 2022. The update policy is therefore the weakest point of the Moto G 5G.
In our extensive Motorola Moto G 5G review you can read what we think of the smartphone. Check below for the best prices of a Moto G 5G with subscription or choose the Moto G 5G separately.
3. Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G
Xiaomi also sells affordable smartphones with 5G in 2021. Think of the Redmi Note 9T, which has been succeeded by the Redmi Note 10 5G. This device has a large 6.5-inch full-HD screen, smooth MediaTek processor and 4GB/64GB of working and storage memory.
A large 5000 mAh battery provides the smartphone with power and charges quickly via the USB-C connection. The Redmi Note 10 5G is equipped with Android 11 and will receive two years of updates. So you are assured of Android 12 and 13 and security updates until the spring of 2023.

4. Oppo A54 5G
Oppo offers, among other things, the A54 5G as a competitively priced 5G smartphone. This model has a beautiful 6.5-inch full-HD screen with a smooth 90Hz refresh rate.
The smartphone runs on a somewhat slower Snapdragon 480 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. On the back you will find four cameras. A hefty 5000 mAh battery provides the Oppo A54 5G with power, but charging takes a few hours. Oppo supplies a slow 10 Watt charger.
The device comes with Android 11 and will receive updates to Android 12 and 13. You will also receive security updates until April 2024, which is longer than usual for a budget smartphone.
Here you will find the lowest price of a separate Oppo A54 5G. You can also purchase the Oppo A54 5G with a subscription.
5. Poco M3 Pro
The Poco M3 Pro is a competitively priced 5G smartphone with a large 6.5-inch full-HD display that looks smooth thanks to the 90Hz refresh rate. The device runs on a fast MediaTek processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage memory.
Three cameras are placed on the back. The smartphone is equipped with a large 5000 mAh battery and runs on Android 11. Poco promises updates to versions 13 and 13 and will roll out security updates until May 2023.
The software is a point of attention, because not everyone will like the busier MIUI shell.
You can buy the Poco M3 Pro separately or in combination with a subscription for 219 euros.
