Let’s start with the newest addition to this list, and it doesn’t have a mini suffix either. The 128GB storage variant of the Apple iPhone 13 can now be conveniently purchased in this budget.

It has IP68 ingress protection and runs the latest iOS 15, with more OS updates to come over the years.

The Apple iPhone 13 features a brighter 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED screen with a resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels and is compatible with HDR10 and Dolby Vision. At its heart is the latest A15 Bionic chip, which powers the entire iPhone 13 series. The two 12-megapixel cameras on the back are similar to those of the iPhone 12, with a different orientation and a slight improvement in image quality. Battery capacity has also been increased from 2815mAh to 3240mAh, resulting in a noticeable jump in battery backup.
