The Pixel 7A looks great, but the Xperia 10 V is the budget movie-focused phone that I’m most excited about

There are no two ways to do this, smartphone prices are skyrocketing, and there are no signs of slowing down any time soon. I still remember the day Apple announced the iPhone X in 2017, with its thousand pound/dollar price tag – and since then we’ve seen Samsung, Sony and Oppo all release phones that exceed that figure.

Fortunately, there are plenty of brilliant budget phones that buck this inflated price trend, with Google’s Pixel a-Series, Sony’s Xperia 10 and newcomer Nothing Phone (1) not compromising too much when it comes to crucial aspects like the screen, sound and performance . So why mention these phones when we’re eagerly awaiting the iPhone 15 and Xperia 1 V? It looks like 2023 will be a big year for budget phones, with Google and Sony unveiling their respective devices just hours apart.
