The best mid-range Android phones of 2018

24 mayo, 2021

When we buy a new mobile we want it to be good, beautiful and cheap. Now that Christmas and the Three Kings are here, mobile phones are a good gift, but in many cases we do not want to spend astronomical figures. Here we leave you with the best Android phones between 200 and 400 euros, which we have classified as mid-range despite the fact that it has less and less meaning.

We believe that it is one of the most important price ranges and it is that it covers many different types of Android phones. From those mid-range that are more than enough for the majority to the most competitive mid-ranges that are sold at very competitive prices. Regardless, we hope that it helps you find that mid-range at the best price, always taking into account its quality.

The best entry-level Android phones of 2018

Motorola Moto G6 Plus

Moto G6 Plus

Motorola announced months ago the Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Plus, two classic mid-range that cannot be missing from any list. The always known and often recommended Moto G series is back for another year, now more premium than ever. A series that has recently been accompanied by the Motorola Moto One.

5.9 “FullHD + expanded screen, Snapdragon 630, 4/6 GB of RAM and 12 + 5MP dual rear camera, f / 1.7 arrive covered in a suit that does not seem mid-range. A mobile that has yet to drop in price and show that Motorola is still in the top positions in terms of quality / price.

Huawei P Smart +

Looking for cameras? Well, here are four cups. OR four lenses: two in front of 24 + 2MP and two behind 16 + 2MP, in both cases with flash. All this spiced up with a 6.3-inch FullHD + screen, ‘notch’ and a glass construction that can be faulted.

The Huawei P Smart + wants to become the affordable option with the new Kirin 710 that seeks to transfer the experience of artificial intelligence to all audiences. A terminal to follow closely for its quality price.

bq Aquaris X2 Pro


The new bq Aquaris X2 Pro is the first device from the Spanish manufacturer to arrive with dual camera and 18: 9 screen. We also have a crystal design that seeks to take a step beyond the classic design.

It is an Android One device powered by a powerful processor Snapdragon 660, 4/6 GB of RAM, 3,100 mAh with fast charging 4.0+ and a photographic section with double 12 MP camera and f / 1.8 aperture.

Samsung Galaxy A8

Samsung presented us with its Galaxy A8 at an exorbitant price but little by little it has been placed where it belongs. And for just over three hundred euros we have a very competitive mid-range.

A 5.6-inch Super AMOLED display with an outstanding quality, Exynos processor, 3,050 mAh with fast charge and a 16 megapixel dual camera that offers a good level in most situations.

Xiaomi Mi A2

My A2

After many months recommending the Xiaomi Mi A1, it is time to make the leap to the Mi A2, the just renewal to be the mobile “good, nice and cheap” of 2018. We are facing a device with the powerful Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM, 18: 9 screen and a double rear camera that has taken an exceptional quality leap.

It does not have NFC or 3.5mm jack, but in quality / price it offers a user experience far above most of its rivals. One of the best mid-range and one of the easiest buying recommendations.

Honor Play

The Honor Play is the Chinese manufacturer’s mobile to compete in this new mid-range with high-end features. We have the powerful Kirin 970 processor with artificial intelligence, 6.3-inch screen and an excellent autonomy of 3,750 mAh for a price of less than four hundred euros.

A mobile for those looking for autonomy, good design and a first-rate screen. Its dual rear camera could offer a better level, but for its price it is difficult to ask for more.

Huawei Mate 20 Lite


Huawei has done an excellent job with the Mate 20 Lite. A device with ‘notch’ on the screen and 19: 9 format, which make it a very compact mobile despite its 6.3-inch screen. Inside we have a Kirin 710 processor with artificial intelligence and a generous 3,750 mAh battery with fast charging.

We do have NFC, fingerprint reader and a combination of up to four cameras. Double rear camera with up to 24 megapixels and double front with 20 megapixels. A mid-range with a great design and very interesting for the end of the year.

Nokia 7 Plus

Nokia offers us a Android One very complete mid-range. A terminal that exactly matches the idea that many of us have in mind of what a mobile phone in this category should be. An advanced processor like the Snapdragon 660, clean software like pure Android, a generous 3,800 mAh battery and dual rear camera with ZEISS optics.

The Nokia 7 Plus only has size as a problem, but it is a very balanced and interesting terminal for what it costs.

Honor 8X

Honor 8x

The Honor 8X is a new mid-range with a generous screen size, up to 6.5 inches, good processor with artificial intelligence and 4GB of RAM.

In the back we have a double camera and the fingerprint reader. And it also stands out with its 3,750 mAh battery. But the most competitive is its price. Honor is always very aggressive in this regard but for 249 euros on its official website it is an offer to think about it.

Honor 10


The Honor 10 is a terminal that offers top-notch features at a very low price. We have the same processor Kirin 970 that incorporate the high-end of Huawei, a glass design with a very striking appearance and a very compact size.

In the back, a double camera powered by artificial intelligence is added and we have 6GB of RAM memory, perfect for playing games without messing up. If you are looking for a mid-range (or high) for less than 400 euros, this Honor 10 offers a excellent price quality.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite

Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite

This year Xiaomi has opted to ‘unfold’ its high-end range into several models, including a variant of features and a more adjusted price. But even if we talk about a terminal with the last name ‘Lite’, this Mi 8 is a very solvent device in many aspects as we already saw in our in-depth analysis. Its specifications include its 6.2-inch screen, the Snapdragon 660 processor or the double rear camera, all with a metal and glass design that does not go unnoticed.

Pocophone F1


POCO, Xiaomi’s secondary brand, presents us with a mobile with some features and an unbeatable price. We have a mobile with a 6.18 “screen, the Snapdragon 845 processor inside and a double rear camera that offers excellent results in all kinds of situations. A true high-end that, except for its plastic body, looks good in almost all its aspects.

The Pocophone F1 will not have the most graceful name but for those who do not mind buying online it is a terminal with impressive features for its price. A mobile with the best quality / price and that puts the rest of the terminals in serious trouble.
