4. Apple iPhone SE

Despite the fact that it is an iPhone, the price will be lower than if you purchased a Google Pixel 6. The Apple iPhone SE may be purchased for a price of $420.

Furthermore, despite the fact that Apple was a late entrant into the 5G market, the company is offering a viable choice to people, particularly those who are interested in purchasing an iPhone. The display of the iPhone SE is only 4.7 inches in size, and the device is powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic chipset. It is the least expensive iPhone model that is compatible with 5G. It should be noted, however, that it only supports the 5G network that operates on the 3.45 GHz frequency and not the 5G networks that Verizon and T-Mobile offer. If you are contemplating purchasing an iPhone SE, it is imperative that you investigate the 5G connectivity options that are offered in the area where you live.

5. Motorola One 5G Ace

The display on the enormous Motorola One 5G Ace is 6.7 inches, making it a very large smartphone. It is clear from the very name that it is compatible with 5G networks.

Purchasing a Motorola One 5G Ace is a smart use of one’s financial resources. It includes three cameras on the back and a camera designed specifically for taking selfies on the front of the device, all of which are good cameras. Despite the fact that it is a low-cost phone, the microSD card has the capacity to store up to 5 gigabytes of information.
