If you are on a tight budget and need a new cell phone you’re going to love the deals on these mobile phones for under $20. There are not many tangible things left you can buy these days with a crisp $20 bill but today we are going to try and prove that trend wrong.

ZTE Atrium

ZTE Atrium $14.99

With some smartphones running upwards of $1,000 I am going to show you how to save a boatload of cash and get your next phone for pennies on the dollar compared to having to mortgage your house and sign a long-term in-debt contract to buy the latest phone out there. Let’s dive into today’s deals and show you just how far you can stretch that $20 in your pocket.

Walmart has a ZTE Atrium Android phone that runs on the Straight Talk Network, has 4 gigabytes of memory and is currently on clearance for $14.99. This phone runs on a 3G prepaid plan, has the Android KitKat operating system and sports a 4 1/2 touch screen display with Wi-Fi capability.

The next deal we have on a mobile phone for under $20 is also from Walmart and it’s the ZTE Zephyr 4GB prepaid smartphone. This phone runs on the NET10 carrier and runs on the Android 4.4 OS. It has a 4-inch touchscreen display and is Wi-Fi capable.

ZTE Majesty

ZTE Majesty Pro $19.99

The next deal we found is the Pixi Avion by Alcatel. This phone runs on the Straight Talk Network and is selling for $9.99. It’s a prepaid smartphone, runs and on the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, has a 4 1/2 inch touchscreen display and the best thing about this phone is that it’s also a 4G phone. To be able to get a smartphone with all these features today for just $10 is amazing and you can find it online at Walmart.

After digging for some more money-saving specials we found a deal at Best Buy on a ZTE Majesty Pro 4G prepaid cell phone. It runs on Simple Mobile, has 8 GB of memory and sells for only $19.99. This smartphone has a 4 1/2 inch touchscreen and a 5-megapixel camera. There is also 8 GB of internal storage which really makes this phone an unreal bargain for just 20 bucks.

ZTE Warp

ZTE Warp $19.99

This next deal we found on a mobile phone for under $20 is on Amazon and it’s the Tracfone LG 3G prepaid phone coming in at just $19.99. This is a popular flip phone from LG. There is no month to month mobile plan and if you don’t require all of the latest fancy apps that modern smartphones have today, a basic flip phone such as the LG TracFone may be a wise choice. This Android phone runs on the Lollipop OS comes loaded with apps and even has a hands-free capability. It also has an MP3 player, a camera, and averages around 4 hours of talk time. With no contract and the fact that this phone is under $20 make this a no-brainer deal. 

The last phone deal we found for today under $20 is the ZTE Warp prepaid phone that runs on Patriot mobile. This phone comes with 15 days of free service and with plans starting out for as low as $20 a month.

The next time you’re due for a new cell phone you may want to try and not get locked into a long-term two-year contract with an overpriced smartphone. Not when you can buy a fully functional mobile phone that runs on a modern Android operating system for under $20. You may want to jump on one of these deals today before they are gone forever.
