A decade ago nobody would have thought that smartphones would be this advanced. Now, you can do almost anything with a single touch, which makes securing your device a number one priority. Different approaches were used by different brands over the years, but the two most successful technologies are the fingerprint sensor and face unlock. Earlier they were only available with premium smartphones but with time, they have made their way into the budget price segment. Here’s a list of some of the best budget options you can find on Amazon. These have been curated based on their listed features.

Mi Redmi 8 Phone

Xiaomi’s sub-brand, Redmi, has been the king of budget smartphones for quite some time now. The Redmi 8 is a 6.22-inch smartphone with a resolution of 1520X720 giving the device a pixel density of 270ppi. The smartphone has an entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM, making this device capable enough for most common applications available on the Play Store. The smartphone has a 12MP+2MP setup to click good quality pictures. In terms of security, the device has a fingerprint sensor at the back and uses the 8MP front camera for face unlock. The splash-proof smartphone has an IR blaster and a USB Type-C port that supports fast charging out of the box.

Realme 5i

Realme is pretty new to the budget smartphone battlefield but has gained quite a bit of ground for itself. The credit goes to its budget-friendly devices like the Realme 5i. One of the main selling points of this product is the 12MP+8MP+2MP+2MP rear quad camera setup that separates it from the rest of the competition. The front 8MP camera can be used to capture some good-looking selfies and to secure your device through face unlock. It even has the physical fingerprint sensor at the back for unlocking the phone. The Snapdragon 665 processor along with 4GB of RAM should be able to perform well enough to handle all your daily tasks without taking a toll on the 5000mAh battery.

Vivo U10

If you’re looking for a smartphone with enhanced security, big battery and fast charging, then you should definitely check out the Vivo U10. The smartphone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which can be extended up to 256GB using a microSD card. To power up all this hardware, Vivo has installed a massive 5000mAh battery in the phone. When it comes to optics, Vivo has packed the smartphone with a 13MP (primary) + 8MP (wide angle) + 2MP (portrait) rear camera setup. The 8MP selfie shooter can also be used to unlock your device using face unlock technology, thus preventing unauthorised access. You can enjoy all your favourite movies, TV shows and animes on the 6.35-inch display. The 18W Type-C fast charging should make sure that your schedule isn’t hampered by slow charging speeds.

Realme U1

If your main priority while buying a smartphone is a good selfie camera, then you can’t go wrong with the Realme U1. It packs a 25MP front-facing camera for your selfies and also secures your device using face unlock technology. The 13MP+2MP rear camera lenses are a good pair for some decent photos and full HD video recording. Under the hood, you get a Mediatek Helio P70 processor with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage so it should perform all your everyday tasks without any major hiccups. The 6.3-inch display with a resolution of 2340X1080 pixels should make for a good display to enjoy all your games and videos. All this is powered by a 3500mAh battery that will last you about a day, as claimed by Realme.
