If you want to buy a mobile in Spain by 2021, you have multiple options available. If you are looking for a great phone that meets all your criteria, these are our best options, from the most affordable price to the best Android phones available on the market.
The cheapest we recommend: Motorola Moto G9 Play and Poco M3
There are many affordable phones on the market, but if you are looking to spend little money and have good performance, the Motorola Moto G9 Play are very competitive options. Both models have a hardware configuration powerful enough for day-to-day applications, as well as gigantic batteries and a photographic experience that is not bad at all.
The key choice between one model or another would be whether you want NFC connectivity to pay with your mobile or you prefer 128 GB of memory, in the same way as the choice of the system. These would be your options:
- With pure Android, NFC and 64 GB of storage: Motorola Moto G9 Play for 149 euros.
- With MIUI and 128 GB of storage, without NFC: Poco M3 for 159 euros.
The best in quality / price: Poco X3
The Poco X3 NFC has been one of the revelation mobiles of 2020, and it is no wonder. Xiaomi has managed to offer a great balance in technical specifications with great performance, a good camera and great sound at a price that is usually around just over 200 euros. Because of the difference in price between the 64 and 128 GB model, we recommend the second one more, but if you are looking to save up to the last euro, the 64 GB version is great.
- Poco X3 NFC 64 GB for 188 euros.
- Poco X3 NFC of 128 GB for 205 euros.
The cheapest mobile with 5G that we recommend: Motorola Moto G 5G Plus
Although 5G is expanding, there are already more and more mobiles and these are increasingly affordable. The Motorola Moto G 5G Plus is one of the phones that most caught our attention last year, and as its price has been falling it has seemed more and more attractive.
The Snapdragon 765G processor is a mid-to-high-end processor and one of the chips with the best balance between price and performance to enter 5G. In addition to that we have a fluid screen at 90 hertz and a great camera system. A safe and recommended option even if there is still no 5G in your area.
Moto G 5G Plus for 279 euros.
If you are looking for a small mobile with a camera that always hits the mark: Pixel 4a
The Google Pixel 4a is a completely niche mobile, and you don’t need much explanation to want it or discard it. If you are looking for a mobile that is comfortable to handle with one hand and with a spectacular camera, it is the best option you have on Android. A very well polished Android system at the software level with very good application performance and Android updates for 3 years and without any waiting.
Google Pixel 4a for 389 euros.
High-end at the lowest possible price: realme X50 Pro 5G
The realme X50 Pro is a mobile that we analyze with a lot of skepticism, and that is that the company drastically raised the price compared to its previous flagship, the X2 Pro, which for us was the mobile of the year in 2019. Looking at the realme X50 Pro with perspective After testing the rest of the flagship phones of 2020 and seeing how their price drops to 400 euros, the realme X50 Pro has become a really solid bet.
For 400 euros you will not find a better mobile, and if you want a much better mobile on a technical level you will have to pay several hundred euros more. Its only notable absence is wireless charging.
realme X50 Pro 5G 128 GB for 399 euros.
The high-end yet most affordable: Galaxy S20 FE
Although the realme X50 Pro is a mobile that has almost everything at the height of the high-end, there are some featurespremium to which you do not have access. Wireless charging for example would be one of them, and if you want to have it all, there is no better option than the Galayx S20 FE.
This more affordable edition of the Galaxy S20 offers a great balance between size and weight (since the rest of the brands have opted for more excessive sizes and weights) and does not renounce the best of the high range. We have performance, maximum fluidity, a very competent camera, water resistance and wireless charging at a price that, although not for everyone, is one of the most affordable if you are looking for a mobile with these characteristics.
- Galaxy S20 FE 4G with Exynos 990 processor for 527 euros.
- Galaxy S20 FE 5G with Snapdragon 865 processor for 628 euros.
If you want the best of the best now: Samsung Galaxy S21
Although most of the phones on the list are very good, they still all belong to 2020. If you want the best of the best in Android, today your only option is the Samsung Galaxy S21, available in Spain. If you are looking for the best of the best for Android and you want it, it is the best option, although our recommendation is to wait a few days to have more options. Xiaomi will present the Mi 11 on February 8, and as the weeks go by there will be more flagship models that arrive.
- Galaxy S21 5G for 849 euros.
- Galaxy S21 + 5G for 1049 euros.
- Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G for 1249 euros.
