Cheap will always be second best to Free.
Sometimes we need extra cell phones for emergencies like when we run out of battery, or we break our primary phone. Or we can use a separate phone as a music player, a usb, or a camera. Obviously our primary cell phones would be the better one and the extra one can be just any phone. And not everybody has the leisure to buy an expensive one just for the purpose of an extra or emergency phone. But there are phones that are still good enough for less. Here’s a list of cell phones that can be purchased for less than $20.
Nokia Lumia 928 – $9.99
The device was released just this year May 16. The main features of the Lumia includes a 1080p HD video and photo recording, Optical Image Stabilization, 8.7 MP PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon Flash, and has a 4.5in 1280×768 AMOLED 334 PPI touchscreen display. Armando Rodriguez from PC World wrote, “The Nokia Lumia 928 is excellent for capturing images in low-light environments, but the phone falls victim to Windows Phone’s various shortcomings.”
AT&T U2800A – $19.99

HTC One V – $14.49
