Suppose your smartphone is broken or you want a spare device. What is the cheapest smartphone in the world then? In any case, don’t pick this one, because that’s probably also the worst…
The flagship devices, such as the iPhone 14 and the Samsung S22 Ultra, are becoming more and more expensive. But luckily there are also plenty of phones to buy that are very cheap and still offer quite a few functionalities.
So are you on black seed and do you really need a new phone, or do you just want to spend as little money as possible on a smartphone? Then read on.
However, with a cheap smartphone you have to be careful whether the technical specifications match what you need. To achieve a low price, the manufacturer has to make compromises. Often those are the things you want to see in your smartphone. Below we describe a phone where that turned out very wrong. Fortunately, this phone is not for sale in the Netherlands.
The cheapest smartphone in the world also turns out to be one of the worst
The cheapest smartphone in the world is probably the Shivansh ismart Super Mario, on Amazon India for sale for 2990 rupees, about 36 euros. For this amount you get a device with Android 9, 2 GB memory and 16 GB storage, support for 2G and a hilariously bad promo video.
This is probably the only phone in the world with “jio sim”, known as dual sim in other phones. But that’s not all. A beautiful set is also included with which you can mash all SIM cards into the welcoming slots of this marvel of technology.
The Indian buyers of this Trabant among the phones are without exception extremely outraged at the poor quality of this thing.
After three hours you have to charge this phone again. And that’s not all. For example, a user’s battery was no longer working within 10 days. The Shivansh iSmart Super Mario is therefore probably not only the cheapest, but also the worst smartphone in the world.
Fortunately, such incredibly bad phones are not sold in the Netherlands. Of course you pay almost twice as much for the cheapest model here.
