Smartphone for students: you should pay attention to this

Smartphones are for sale in all kinds of price ranges, from many brands and each with their own unique features. It is therefore quite personal which device suits you best. As a student you don’t want to spend too much, but you are certainly looking for a phone that holds its own in every area.

For example, it must be powerful enough for everyday tasks, it is nice if the cameras are good and the battery life is long enough, but years of support is also a smart choice. In this overview you will find the five best smartphones for students, in no particular order, with a maximum price of 500 euros.

Sometimes it pays to buy a device directly with a subscription, because you can save a lot on the purchase price. Pay attention to the monthly device costs, because if they become too high, you will get a BKR registration.

#1. Nothing Phone (1) – 469 euro

The Nothing Phone (1) is a popular and striking device, because Nothing does it just a little differently. The smartphone mainly revolves around the design, because that makes everyone look back. Hundreds of LEDs can be found on the back, which light up with incoming calls, notifications or while playing music.

The package of hardware is well coordinated and the software is nice to work with. Unnecessary applications or extras are not present and it feels fast and smooth. In everything the Phone (1) does well, but in no area is it excellent.

#2. Google Pixel 6a – 449 euro

The Google Pixel 6a can of course not be missing from this list. It is Google’s entry-level device, but the device has a lot to offer. How about the clean version of Android 12 and years of updates? This way you can enjoy the latest possibilities throughout the study and you are always safe thanks to monthly updates.

The smartphone is equipped with its own processor that we know from the more expensive Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. The 6a can also be called relatively small thanks to the screen of only 6.1 inches. It is available in different colors, so you can also choose which one suits you best.

#3. OnePlus Nord 2T – 349 euro

The Nord series from OnePlus has been known for years for the good ratio between price and performance, and that is no different with the OnePlus Nord 2T. This midranger scored a big pass in our review. This is partly due to the colorful and smooth screen, fast processor and excellent set of cameras for this price.

Striking is the fast charging function, with which you can charge the battery of 4500 mAh at lightning speed. That goes with a maximum of 80 Watts and you often don’t even find that with much more expensive models. You can also go for years ahead with the device in terms of updates, because Android 13 and 14 are also coming in the future.

#4. Samsung Galaxy A53 – 339 euro

The most affordable smartphone in this top five comes from Samsung. However, make no mistake, because the device measures itself with the best in this price range. The Galaxy A53 belongs to the popular A-line and that is not without reason. For example, the update policy is the best and you can easily complete the entire study with the device.

The hardware, battery and cameras are also fine. For example, you can use your phone for everyday tasks, performing calculations or planning meetings. Samsung no longer supplies a charger, so you have to arrange it yourself.

In addition, it already runs on Android 12 by default and we will see three major Android updates and four years of security patches in the future. All in all, definitely a device to consider and take with you in your search for an affordable smartphone!
