Huawei Ascend Y550 4G
The Huawei Ascend Y550 4G is a 4G Android smartphone with a Quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5 megapixel camera, 2 megapixel front facing camera and a 4.5″ inch screen. What makes this phone special is that it runs Android KitKat and has support for LTE Cat 4 networks – something that is usually only found on the expensive models. You can pick this phone up from Vodafone for just $99. In fact, you’ll also get a $40 prepaid starter kit ($750 of cap credit and 2GB of data for 28 days) and a free subscription to Spotify for 3 months! Such a great deal.
$99.00 via [Vodafone]
Nokia Lumia 530
The Nokia Lumia 530 is one of the cheapest Windows Phones available. It has a quad-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of Storage, 5 megapixel camera (no front facing), 4″ inch screen and MicroSD card support. This phone only supports 3G, so you won’t be able to experience super fast 4G speeds on this one. You can pick this phone up at Woolworths for $39.50 (on special). It’s locked to Telstra and comes with a free case.
Huawei Ascend G510
Another Huawei phone to add to the mix. The Huawei Ascend G510 has a dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of Storage, 5 megapixel camera (no front facing), 4.5″ inch screen, MicroSD support and has Android Jelly Bean. Again, this phone only supports 3G, so you’ll be stuck in 2003. This phone is available from Officeworks for $49.00 and is locked to Optus.
