10 best smartphones for online students

Smartphones are no longer fancy toys for children to use in their spare time. They are now the portal for their education as online learning continues for many students. This means they will need to upgrade their devices to keep up with the technology used for classes. The best smartphones for students do not necessarily have to be expensive. They just need to have the basic features that allow the students to interact with lessons comfortably.

How to choose the best smartphones

As students enter another school year from home, choosing the best smartphones should be dependent on their last smartphone experience. Students need a phone that moves fast, has plenty memory, an excellent camera, clear audio and displays a screen big enough to view assignments.

Some unnecessary gadgets that might jack up the price of the best smartphones are extravagant features such as face unlock, fingerprint unlock and gestures that activate certain apps. Here are 10 best smartphones for you to choose for online students.
