Best Budget Phones For Battery Life (2021) | Poco, Moto, Xiaomi & more…


Reviewing and comparing the best budget phones in 2021 for battery life, as (hopefully) we can once again emerge from our homes. Here’s my favourite affordable smartphones from Xiaomi (including the Redmi 9), the Poco X3 NFC and M3, plus Motorola’s Moto G9 Power and more. Check out my full unboxing and review videos for these mobiles, plus my other best of round-ups for the greatest budget friendly smartphones.

We start with a look at the Moto G9 Power, which offers a massive 6000mAh battery for a price under £200. It’s a respectable handset on all accounts, with a stock Android vibe and strong enough PubG performance. Matching that battery size is the Poco M3, yours for just £150 in the UK. This handset can be a little juddery here and there but you can still game if you like and the Full HD display is a step up from Motorola’s smartphone.

A bit more cash bags you the Poco X3 NFC or Moto G9 Plus, with better overall performance (although a reduced battery size).

You can also grab great cheap phones from Xiaomi, with excellent longevity. And Doogee offers a mighty 10000mAh cell in its S88 Pro, which is one of the best budget blowers for outdoor enthusiasts. Full reviews of these and more here on Tech Spurt!
