The top 5 list is based only on these rivals.

Some users did install the Google Play Store on recent Huawei phones, but please be aware that officially you won't get Google apps, and some essential apps may be missing too.

You can click on any rival to know more about it too.

These are the lowest prices found on any of these stores: Amazon.com, eBay.com, Best Buy, and Walmart.

Prices on eBay are in $US for reference but are Europe-based.

Prices marked with ! are from renewed/refurbished/carrier-locked phones (except eBay, that are from new devices, unless they are out of stock, then they can be from bids, and then from pre-owned devices).

We're only including devices that still receive security updates.

Disclaimer: We earn a small fee from qualifying purchases. It doesn't affect any item's price or eventual reviews .
