  • - Hey, guys, this is Austin.

  • And this is the cheapest smartphone available on Amazon,

  • the Pocophone F1.

  • Just kidding, this is for obscenely rich people.

  • These are the actual cheapest smartphones we could find

  • on Amazon with Prime shipping.

  • And a huge shout out to LastPass for sponsoring this video.

  • LastPass relieves the stress around

  • keeping track of all of your passwords

  • and losing access to your accounts.

  • Now, I've personally been using LastPass

  • for over five years now, way before they

  • ever sponsored the channel.

  • With LastPass, you never have to remember

  • or write down another password again.

  • Not only will it keep all of them

  • safe and secure inside your LastPass vault,

  • but on top of that, you can even generate

  • random passwords for each individual site.

  • You know, if you're one of those people

  • who uses the same one-two-three-four password

  • on every single site.

  • Don't do that.

  • Bad idea.

  • Use LastPass.

  • And LastPass even works on sites

  • as well as apps on mobile devices

  • such as iOS and Android.

  • You can even unlock your vault

  • with just your fingerprint or face.

  • And with access to advanced

  • two-factor authentication options

  • such as a YubiKey, LastPass is not only convenient

  • but it's a safe way of keeping

  • all your passwords secure online.

  • If you aren't already using LastPass,

  • you should definitely check it out

  • at the link in the description.

  • Again, huge shout out to LastPass for sponsoring this video.

  • Now let's get into some cheap smartphones.

  • Starting out with, we have the Blu Advance A4,

  • one of the more popular options on Amazon,

  • at $55 with nearly a thousand reviews.

  • Inside, you will find a quad core processor,

  • but it's backed up by only 512 megabytes of RAM,

  • eight gigs of storage, as well as the brand new

  • and incredibly cutting edge Android 6.0.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • That's some very high-end packaging.

  • Wow, I hope the battery's not in this,

  • because this is incredibly light.

  • Wow.

  • So believe it or not,

  • this is actually a four-inch display,

  • which at one time was considered

  • large for a smartphone, but this, this just seems tiny.

  • Wow, we actually have a lot of accessories.

  • So not only is there a battery, but there's also a case.

  • We've got our micro USB for charging,

  • as well as our power adapter,

  • and is that a screen protector?

  • All right, not bad for 55 bucks.

  • Next up, we have the Kenxinda V5, at a whopping $51.

  • Now, this one, this one's got

  • a little bit of a higher spec I think.

  • Yeah, look at that.

  • We've got a full one gig of RAM,

  • a 1500 milliamp hour battery, as well as Android 7.0.

  • That's actually a lot better than six, at least.

  • Oh wow.

  • That's very white.

  • Okay, all right.

  • Oh wait, it's gold on the back?

  • For style, it's definitely a little bit of a unique look.

  • This is also another four-inch phone,

  • which by 2018 standards feels absolutely tiny.

  • But I've got to say, I actually kind of don't hate it.

  • I miss the days of smaller smartphones.

  • Pop open the box and we have the charger

  • with an attached micro USB cable,

  • as well as, look at that,

  • we've got ourselves a headphone.

  • A pair of headphones, to be more specific.

  • That's very impressive.

  • And what is I hope a package, yes,

  • that has a headphone jack.

  • I knew that.

  • Last but not least, we have the DOOGEE X10S.

  • Now, with a massive budget of $62,

  • this is the most expensive phone here,

  • but if you take a look at the specs,

  • it actually doesn't look too bad.

  • So on top of having a five-inch display

  • instead of four-inch, we do have a much larger

  • 3300 milliamp hour battery,

  • and importantly, Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition.

  • Wait a minute.

  • Oh, I thought the phone was orange for a second.

  • I got real excited.

  • So wait, so not only it has a case on it,

  • dude, this is actually a metal phone.

  • Look at that.

  • (tapping)

  • Wow.

  • So this does come with a screen protector in the box,

  • as well as what looks like to be a charger.

  • In the bottom we have our micro USB cable

  • and some random accessories that I'm never gonna read.

  • So all three phones charged up and updated.

  • Let's start with the Blu Advance A4.

  • The issue here is that this just feels ancient.

  • Not only is it made out of incredibly cheap plastic,

  • but also the hardware itself just feels really out of date.

  • Now sure, this was okay a couple years ago,

  • but right now, there's just better phones,

  • even when you're buying the cheapest things on Amazon.

  • The Ken phone I will definitely say

  • has a lot of flare, kind of like the real Ken himself.

  • So what I like about this is that

  • it is a little bit of a unique look, right?

  • And I think especially when you're talking

  • about a phone that cost you $50,

  • that's completely unlocked, that you can get

  • straight from Amazon, that's cool,

  • but there are definitely some down sides.

  • And the big one is the screen.

  • If you look at it directly head on, it's okay,

  • but as soon as you start tilting it off to the side,

  • the viewing angles are, well,

  • they leave a lot to be desired.

  • And on top of that, this is only a 480 by 800 screen.

  • That resolution, my friends,

  • should have been left in 2010 where it belongs.

  • Not in 2018 on a, well to be fair, a $51 phone, but...

  • Which brings us to the DOOGEE,

  • a phone which actually feels usable in 2018.

  • So first of all, it's a bigger phone.

  • Having a five-inch display instead of a four-inch panel

  • looks a lot nicer, and on top of that,

  • it is a much nicer display.

  • It is IPS, and while the actual resolution

  • is still 480 by 854, the actual screen itself,

  • it's much brighter, it seems, you know, usable,

  • and not garbage town like everything else.

  • It also feels pretty decent in hand.

  • Now, yeah, it is a little bit on the heavy side,

  • but if you pop off the back,

  • what you do find is that massive 3300 milliamp hour battery,

  • or sorry, 3360 milliamp hour battery which is back here.

  • Little side note with the DOOGEE phone,

  • if you actually buy one of these,

  • you actually should take off the back panel

  • because there's a little plastic tab

  • which keeps the battery contacts

  • from being connected to the phone.

  • There's been a time or two where I've

  • picked up a DOOGEE phone and thought it was broken,

  • which I just had to, you know,

  • remove that piece of plastic.

  • Pro tip.

  • Of course, we do have the included pair of headphones

  • that come with the Ken phone,

  • which means that I've got to,

  • I guess I should listen to the radio, right?

  • Does that seem fair?

  • I mean...

  • (indistinct pop music)

  • Is that Jesus song?

  • I'm not doing this for no reason.

  • I have to get service.

  • Or, I have to get a radio station.

  • Why am I listening to radio on a $50 phone from Amazon?

  • This is a poor choice of my time.

  • This is running Android 8.1 Go Edition.

  • Now, that's a fairly up-to-date version of Android,
