Tech News and Commentary
Dave and the team are traveling to CES 2020. Stay tuned for the latest from Las Vegas next week!
John in Decatur, Illinois and asked: “What’s the best prepaid phone that has an octa-core processor and is at or under $50?”
John, $50 doesn’t buy a lot in the smartphone world and beggars can’t be choosers.
You can buy a $49 LG Tribute Dynasty and it will have an octacore processor, but that’s the only one we’ve been able to find that meets your requirements.
You will find a few quadcore phones, and some more expensive octacore phones but that’s all we could find for octacore phones.
Keep in mind that eight cores or less, a budget phone is a budget phone and it probably won’t perform very well when you compare to other devices. If they could make it cheap enough to sell for $50 but sell it for $800 because of how it performs they’d be selling it for $800.
You may be better off looking for a phone with fewer cores and better overall software and hardware if you’re looking for a better experience.
