The 5 best mobile phones launched this year that do not exceed 200 euros

One of the advantages and disadvantages of mobile technology is how quickly it depreciates. The vast majority of mobile phones quickly lower their price within a few months of their launch and features that belong to higher ranges They are making their way among the lowest. Thus, today, it is not difficult to find examples that stand out for their screen or cameras within the economic range, below 200 euros. They are not mobile phones that do so for an advanced set of features, but they do meet the requirements for the majority of users and are notable in some specific aspect. We review the most interesting mobile phones that have been launched in the last semester and that you can now find at a lower cost than their launch, within this price range.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 13 5G

He Redmi Note This year it has come out in two versions, 4G and 5G, and with different processor and memory configurations depending on the case.

The most interesting is the 5G, which stands out both for its design and for its screen and battery.
