Best cheap USB-C phone?

My mom's Nexus 5X is showing its age.  She tends to ruin micro-USB sockets, so USB-C is pretty much a requirement.  She is not a gamer, so does not need a high performance phone.  Any recommendations?




  • Hi John,

    There's a lot to choose from so it might depend on some other factors like how much you want to spend or size of the phone so what I would suggest is reaching out to our Personal Shopper team. They are our team here that can help you find the perfect phone based off of your specifications and will give you a few options to choose from. If you fill out the form they'll get back to you as soon as they find something.  

  • Absolutely agree with pinging the personal shopper team for more options. I've also had good luck with the LG VX0 series. I owned the V20, and I hear really good things about the V30. They're really close to stock, which should be an easier transition from the 5X.

  • I know this post is a few months old, but if your mom is still looking for a new phone, I would highly recommend the Motorola Moto G6.  I think they go for about $199 unlocked, and it works on every band you can think of.  It has a USB-C plug and very respectable specifications.  I got one for my mother and she's tickled.
