March. 05, 2020
Buying a phone for your kid is a balancing act of getting something they'll want to use without spending a fortune.
There are tons of great handsets that your kid and wallet will equally love.
1. Motorola's Moto G7
Motorola's G-series has become famous for offering quality experiences at low price points, and the G7 is no different. The glass back gives it a premium in-hand feel while the 6.2-inch Full HD+ display is bright and colorful for homework and Fortnite. There's also plenty of power for the G7 to keep up with everything your kid throws at it, including a Snapdragon 632 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 3,000 mAh battery for all-day endurance. When the phone needs to be charged up, it does so over USB-C with 18W wired charging speeds.
2. Samsung Galaxy A50
This is the best mid-range phone Samsung and it packs quite the punch.
From a design standpoint, one of the most notable aspects of the A50 is its 6.4-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. It's bright, colourful, crisp, and has very minimal bezels all around. Assuming your kid's hands are big enough to comfortably handle the A50, this display is reason enough to look into the phone.
Above the display is a 25MP front-facing camera, which is great news if your kid is an avid selfie-taker. As for the rear cameras, the A50 is equipped with a 25MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide sensor, and 5MP depth sensor. Under the hood, you'll find a Samsung Exynos 9610 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, and a 4,000 mAh battery. In other words, the Galaxy A50 is fast, has room for tons of local files, and could potentially last two full days on one charge.
3. LG Stylo 5
Just like the Note, the LG Stylo 5 comes with a stylus that can be used for whatever your heart desires. Use it to take handwritten notes, create a work of art, or more easily navigate the phone's interface. It's a nice touch of added functionality you won't find with any of the other phones on this list, and when your kid is done using it, the stylus is stored in a hidden slot on the bottom frame of the phone.
As for the rest of the Stylo 5, it has everything your child needs for a good experience. There's a 6.2-inch Full HD+ display, 13MP rear camera, 5MP selfie camera, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage that can be expanded up to 2TB with a microSD card. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor isn't the most impressive out there, but it should be plenty powerful for most apps and games your kid wants to use.
