What are the best budget Android smartphones currently available? Read this list to find out!

The world is an easy place to live if you're after a budget smartphone these days. Top-tier devices are capable of having amazing features and performance, but in 2014, you don't have to splash your cash to get your hands on a quality phone. Most manufacturers provide budget models, and many of them use the Android operating system from Google. Fast, customisable and very intuitive, budget Android smartphones provide an excellent alternative to paying out your life savings on expensive flagship models.

Nokia X - £100

The Nokia X is Nokia's initial foray into the world of Android. The Nokia X range (Nokia X, X+ and XL) was announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February. "The Nokia X is built on Android open source software. We have differentiated and added our own experience," Nokia head Stephen Elop said.

These are good looking phones, with a unibody design that comes in a range of bright colours like green, red and yellow. You can also opt for black or white if your tastes are not that vibrant. The Nokia X measures in at 115.5 x 63 x 10.4mm and weighs just 128g.

The Nokia X has a good-enough 1GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, with 4GB storage and 512MB of RAM. The 4GB of storage isn't too big, but there's a microSD card slot for expanding that.
