Going Smart on a Budget

As teenagers, we're not all six-figure earners. Generally, we don't have the ability to go and spend hundreds of dollars on a new smartphone because we simply don't earn that money. Although many teenagers have jobs, we have a limit on our spending and sometimes we rely on our parents for money. So what happens if you don't have $500 to spend on the latest smartphone? I know when it comes to phone-buying time, I think it's a truly awesome experience. I adore looking and shopping for phones -- although that's sad, it's true! Today's post is something that may help many people. I'm going to round up four of the hottest budget devices on the market today. Every phone on the list is a smartphone and many run android! I've made sure that all devices are available internationally, and if you need any future help on budget phone buying, please contact me on Twitter -- it'd be my pleasure!
