The last time we updated our prepaid phones list it was a list of trade offs. You got a very different experience when you spent just a couple of hundred dollars on your phone up front. With some serious power now available for just a few hundred dollars it's an amazing time for those looking to buy a new phone outright.
The fact we can even include Google's latest flagship Nexus 5, which comes in under AU$400, shows just how far we have come. We'd say that pushes the upper limit a little for the truly budget conscious, but for something so powerful it's a steal for a an outright phone.
So here is our current list of all of the handsets we've reviewed that are currently available at great prices outright. Do note that some of these reviews are older than others, so the RRPs listed will be higher than the price the phone is sold for now.
