Smartphones have never been so essential in these times of cloud computing, bring-your-own-device and getting online, both as leisurely playthings and as vital productivity tools across almost every industry imaginable.
Still, not every business has the budget to kit staff out with the latest top-end device, so we've assembled a list of the best cheap smartphones on the market today.
Whether they're solid all-rounders or pack a price-busting premium feature, these value handsets show you don't need to pay a great sum for a great phone.
EE Harrier Mini - £85
It's the cheapest device on this list, but the EE Harrier Mini sports the kind of features we'd expect on something far pricier: 4G connectivity, HD 4.7in display, 8MP rear camera and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The latter point is a big win for EE's compact effort, as many Android phones are still stuck on the older 4.4 Kitkat version. Lollipop, however, gives the Harrier Mini a wealth of performance optimisations and security upgrades, as well as new features like guest accounts and a battery saver mode.
The Harrier Mini will also support EE's WiFi Calling service once it becomes available for the Harrier range, which is "soon", according to EE. WiFi Calling effectively carries calls and texts over wireless internet without the need for a mobile signal - great for anyone living or working in areas with patchy coverage.
The service is currently available for iPhones and the Samsung Galaxy range, so the Harrier Mini will be one of the first budget devices to take advantage of it.
