The Best Cheap Android Phone EVER, 2021 | $100 Android Smartphone

The Umidigi A9 Pro is my pick for 2021’s best phone at $100. It has a 6.3” 1080P+ screen, a premium glass and metal design, the Helio P60 chip paired with 4GB of RAM, and a full set of workable cameras. This is the first impressions for my 2021 edition of my best phone at $100 series.

My name’s Jason R. and this channel is where I create quality tech and lifestyle videos. I’ve been at this for years and have built an audience I’m extremely grateful for, in addition to developing a style that’s unique and to the point. I make reviews, tech roundups, tutorials, educational videos, and vlogs, and across all these sub-genres, I try my best to make the videos aesthetic, calming, and succinct.

I’m also a full-time student studying mechanical engineering, so I understand I have limitations on both the financial and time management sides. Regardless, I do my absolute best with what I’ve got (which is why budget tech is a big chunk of my content, and why you can trust I approach evaluating it from an organic perspective). But I do strive to put together top-notch content from where I’m at in the hopes you’ll join my journey and help this project branch out 🙂

    I got one delivered to Canada from the US store for about CAD160 (USD119+shipping) about 4 months ago, and I’ve found it to be solid and dependable. The Sony camera array is surprisingly good for a phone at this price.

    Ah i remember being subbed to you 1.2 years ago. Im back 😀

    watched this vid when it came out and had a dream about the phone last night lmao, so weird. Might get it w h o k n o w s

  12. Delta on April 20, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    What’s strange is that the camera quality is really good lol wasn’t expecting that usually budget phones don’t care about camera quality one company does and that’s google their software is incredible producing excellent images even at a 400 price tag.

    Jason once again helping people who don’t have the budget for popular flagships 🙂

    I would recommend activating developer settings to make the phone more snappy
