1.- Motorola Moto G 2014
We are required to make this special article from time to time due to the new smartphones that arrive in a very few months. However, the Motorola Moto G 2014 is still the first of the smartphones with prices below 200 euros. It costs 180 euros, has a five-inch high-definition screen, a Snapdragon 400 processor, a 1 GB RAM, and an 8-megapixel camera. It’s like the original Motorola Moto G, but with major improvements that make it even a rival to flagships. The internal memory of this 180 euro version is 8 GB, although in this case it can be expanded by means of a microSD card. And best of all, it has Android 5.0 Lollipop, having been the first smartphone to receive the update without counting the Nexus 6, the Nexus 9 and the Nexus Player that were launched together with the new version of the operating system. I would also highlight the fact that it has Gorilla Glass 3 glass.
2.- Xiaomi Redmi 1S
Xiaomi and its mid-range smartphone take second place. This smartphone is between the Motorola Moto G 2014 and the original Moto G from last year. Its screen is 4.7 inches, but also high definition, with Gorilla Glass 2, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor and a 1 GB RAM. It has an internal memory of 8 GB, expandable by means of a microSD card. The camera is eight megapixels. The best thing is that this smartphone is priced at 125 euros.
3.- BQ Aquaris E5 HD
The BQ Aquaris E5 HD is manufactured in Spain, and it is another of the best smartphones that we can buy for less than 200 euros. Its price remains at 190 euros, and we put it in third place because the processor is MediaTek. Although it is not from Qualcomm, it is still quad-core and clocked at 1.3 GHz. The RAM is 1 GB, while the internal memory is 16 GB, expandable by means of a microSD card. The screen is five inches, and high definition, and in this case it has a Dragontrail glass (difference between Dragontrail and Gorilla Glass). This smartphone is Dual SIM, and has the advantage that the technical service is in Spain.
4.- Xiaomi Redmi Note
The fourth place is for another Xiaomi smartphone, the Xiaomi Redmi Note, a smartphone that stands out for having a 5.5-inch screen, although with a price lower than 200 euros, being able to buy for just under 180 euros. Its screen is high definition, without being Full HD. It has the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor as the first two, but with a RAM of 2 GB. Also, the camera is 13 megapixels, with a secondary front camera of five megapixels. To all this we must add that it has 4G. Even so, for us it ranks fourth in this list of the five best smartphones for less than 200 euros. The other three seem to us smartphones with a better quality / price ratio.
5.- Motorola Moto G 4G
The Motorola Moto G that they launched last year did not have 4G, nor did it have a microSD card reader. Thus, they launched a later version called Motorola Moto G 4G, which was the same, although with 4G connectivity, with a microSD card, and in two colors, black and white. It has a price of about 175 euros, so in our opinion it is better to buy the Motorola Moto G 2014 (although it does not have 4G). However, if you are looking for a cheap smartphone with 4G, it is probably one of the best options.
