In the offer of Polish operators we will find a similar set of phones offered for PLN 1 in low monthly commitments. I decided to check which models are worthy of interest in particular subscriptions.

In Poland about 60% of mobile phones are sold to operators. Contrary to appearances, this is not a downward spiral, as in some countries the percentage is noticeably higher, but the share of operators is still high. The reasons for this situation are different. Some subscribers prefer the convenience of subscription, while others are just accustomed to such a form of buying a new phone. Of course, a large group of customers want to spread the price of a smartphone in time, with the right package for calls, messages and data (and many other services). For those who are looking for a phone at the operators, I have allowed myself to look at the offers of each network and recommend the best in my opinion smartphones in the most popular price ranges . I tried to select only those models that can be bought for a nominal zloty at a given monthly commitment, although in some cases I allowed myself to increase this amount to 100 zlotys. Important note. This entry is not intended to compare the offers and the profitability of individual operators. This will be in the near future my colleague Konrad. But I choose only the best smartphones from the available subscription.

Subscription up to 40 zł

Just a classic phone

If we are looking for a cheap subscription with a phone for a zloty with no installment fees it is (gently speaking) we have been swept . No additional charge for the equipment will not work, and for a symbolic zloty we can get at most a classic phone like the new Nokia 3310. In this situation, it is difficult to recommend the purchase of any model.

Subscription to 60 zł

Subscribe to LG K10 (2017)

The situation is not much better when we decide to subscribe to 60 zlotys. Our maneuverability is limited to several basic models. In case we are still determined to buy a phone with such a monthly fee, I recommend adding a few hundred zlotys to the discussed zloty and using the LG K10 (2017) .

LG K10 (2017) offers everything an average user needs for decent hardware for basic tasks. The MediaTek 2GB RAM delivers smooth and efficient operation of Android Nougat, and the 5.3 "HD display allows for relatively comfortable viewing of content. It is worth mentioning that the batteries can be exchanged on their own, which is a rare occurrence. This is a worthy successor of last year's hit, which you can buy at any Polish operator. The LG K10 (2017) is available from every operator, but is offered under different conditions. In Play we have to pay 299 gold on our subscription and on T-Mobile 99 gold. In the case of LG K10 Plus (2017) is 1 zł for start and it's for subscription for 49.99 PLN, but there are also monthly installments for the same equipment, raising the monthly fee to almost 70 zł. The same tactics uses Orange, so at startup we pay 149 gold with a total fee of 60.99 zł, and get a subscription with a very basic data package.

Subscription to 80 zł

Motorola Moto G5s or Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017)

By choosing a subscription for around 80 PLN we can afford a lot of models for a zloty to start, but my unmistakable favorite is the Motorola Moto G5s .

Motorola Moto G5s is worth recommending. Decent components (Snapdragon 430 and 3GB RAM) provide smooth operation of the phone, especially when combined with pure Android. The manufacturer diversified the software from Google with only a few extras, and each one could be called practical and convenient (for example, turning the smartphone to turn on the camera, or a karate gesture to launch the flashlight). There's also a 16-megapixel camera, a metal case, and an updated Android Oreo. Moto G5s can be at T-Mobile for less than 9 gold and at Play for equal gold . In the case of Orange for the phone we do not pay anything , but the monthly fee consists not only of the subscription, but also installments. Plus does not offer this model. An alternative proposal is Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) . The Koreans have significantly improved their last year's model, adding a metal case, better camera, more powerful SoC and fingerprint reader. I put this model lower than the Moto G5s, but I will not be surprised if this Samsung product proves to be more popular. Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) we can get at T-Mobile in the accepted subscription for 1 or 29 gold, depending on the specific offer. On Play, a one-time fee is $ 99 . To receive in Plus a monthly fee close to 80 zlotys , you will need to subscribe for PLN 49.99 and installments for 36 months – in this configuration, they will charge us 1 zlotys. In Orange for this moment we will not find the Galaxy J5 in the tariffs we are interested in.

Subscription up to 100 zł

Motorola Moto Z2 Play and LG Q6

Choosing a subscription for about $ 100 significantly increases the list of possible choices. While reviewing the offerings of individual operators, I noticed that the Motorola Moto Z2 Play is a strong favorite, although the amount we get at launch is only available at T-Mobile.

Motorola Moto Z2 Play is one of the so-called. Superstars , who in some respects are able to compete with the flagships, though mostly last year. The Moto Z2 Play is the ultimate in speed and performance, with the Snapdragon 626, 4GB of RAM and a clean Android version. The advantage of the device is also a nice Super AMOLED display. Do not forget about support for Moto Mods, which is a modular accessory that extends the capabilities of this smartphone. At the lowest price Moto Z2 Play can count T-Mobile customers, where the phone costs 9 zł . The offer of other operators is worse. Orange has priced the phone for PLN 99 , but it requires signing a contract for a total of almost PLN 130 per month (including device installment) – with a total charge of PLN 100. Play, where we leave up to 619 zł – to get Z2 Play for 1 zł you have to choose subscription for up to 150 zł. Plus does not offer the Moto Z2 Play – in this case only select another of the models I propose. Another alternative is the LG Q6, which we find for 1 zł also in other operators. This is a mid-sized smartphone similar to the Moto G5s, but equipped with a 18: 9 FullVision narrow-screen, which in this class of equipment is so far something special, especially in operator deals. Thanks to its use, the LG Q6 is much lower and narrower than the Moto Z2 Play mentioned earlier, although both phones have displays with the same diagonal. The LG Q6 is clearly cheaper than the Moto Z2 Play. The Violet operator wants $ 1 for the $ 90 charge, just like T-Mobile , which adds an extra case and toughened glass. Plus, we'll meet with a similar start fee , choosing a combination with a combined monthly cost of $ 95.99 and a Bluetooth speaker gift. In Orange, the total amount for LG Q6 is exactly 88.99 zlotys, with no extra charge on your phone.
