Living without a smartphone in 2018 is like living in the '60s without a TV. However back then, to lay your hands on a good one meant you have come into great wealth. Luckily, this is not the case with smartphones in 2018. Because in the age of mass-production and unprecedented technological advancement, almost everyone can afford a smartphone. If it's not an iPhone X - which literally costs more than some cars - you still have a pretty good variety of options to make your pick. So without further ado, here's a list of the best smartphones you can get in Egypt for under EGP4K.

Honor 9 Lite

If you're looking for value for money, this is the right device for you. It comes with a built-in 64GB memory, 4GB Ram (which is far ahead of anything in this price range), and two dual front and back cameras. It can also shoot videos with a 1080p quality. It's worth mentioning that Honor is a sub-brand of the leading Huawei, so you know it's good. This catch is only available for purchase via Souq.com.

Price: EGP3400+

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

This 5.5-inch Chinese beauty comes in a bright grey colour, 3GB Ram, and 32GB internal memory. It has a 13MP rear camera and 5MP at the front. It's also a dual-sim device which is one way to keep your business and private lives apart.

Price: EGP2800+

Huawei Y9

Another double-dual cameras on an affordable device, the front of which is 8x2MP and the rear is 13+2MP. It also comes with Android 8.0, 5.9 inch of screen space, and a 4GB RAM. Released in April 2018, this phone is highly equipped to accommodate the most advanced Android version, and it comes in black, gold, or blue.

Price: EGP3900+

Honor 7A

Sorry, competitors, but Huawei seems to doing something right. While this one is not as advanced like other models listed on here, it's quite advanced for what it's worth. It also comes with double-dual cameras with built-in depth sensors, 3GB RAM, and an aluminum body, so it doesn't break your heart a little when you accidentally drop it.

Price: EGP2300+

Infinix Hot 6 Pro

Out with China, in with Hong Kong. The little island may be virtually colonised by China, but they're nevertheless competing for a piece of the global smartphones market with this brand, Infinix. If a 6-inch device with 3GB RAM, dual SIM, dual rear camera, 4G connection, AND the most recent Android system wouldn't make it on such a list, what will?

Price: EGP 2600+

Huawei GR3

Proving that affordability doesn't necessarily mean less. This 5.2 inch is also one of the best value-for-money devices you can get in Egypt. It comes with a 3GB RAM, dual rear camera, 8MP front camera, 16GB internal memory. So wouldn't recommend it to someone for whom snapping selfies is a pastime.
