Do you feel that your phone is running a little slow? Many of us suffer from this problem, but at the same time, a lot of us don't want to spend a lot to buy a shiny, fast new phone. Most of the time, sluggish phones are the results of not having enough RAM and having too much bloat on your phone.

If you've done the needful and cleaned up your phone, yet still experiencing that unbearable slowness of being, it may be time to shop for a new phone. Here are a few ones that won't break the bank, but pack enough RAM to keep you waltzing smoothly through your day.

10. Xiaomi Mi 5X

Xiaomi has gotten into the groove of offering their previous year's flagship features and design at really affordable prices the following year with an "X" model. The Mi 5X is exactly that, a device that brings the best of the Mi 5 and packages it into an ultra-affordable offering that won't break the bank. The 4 GB of RAM and great internals make this a very affordable quality handset that won't bog you down.

The Flare S6 Plus continues the tradition and raises the bar with fast performance, 4 GB of RAM, modern features like USB Type-C and a FullView display, along with a capable dual-camera setup. You do pay a bit for that low cost by getting subsidized with marketing.

  • Pros: FullView display, Good Battery life
  • Cons: Recycled design, Aging chipset

7. Vivo V5

Vivo has been competing for head to head with OPPO, and the V5 is set to take the selfie-king crown from the incumbent.

  • Cons: Bland plastic design, not ideal for gaming

6. ASUS ZenFone 4 Max

  • Pros: Long battery life for days, decent camera, decent performance, affordable
  • Cons: Clunky, boring design, poor ZenUI

5. Xiaomi Mi A1

The Mi A1 could very well be the perfect budget phone. It has it all: a great dual-camera setup, fast performance, and a clean Android install being part of Google's Android One program which is meant to showcase the vanilla Android experience. If you liked Xiaomi's features and pricing but didn't like the proprietary UI, this is the Xiaomi phone that will make you change your mind.

  • Pros: Solid build quality, stock Android experience, great value, great 1080p display
  • Cons: No NFC, no IP6x dust and water resistance

4. Honor 7X

HUAWEI is an expert at bringing amazing phones to the mid-range, and the Honor 7X skirts the point of entry-level while staying strong on a beautiful skinny bezel design, all-metal build, and a powerful camera. There's little not to like, and the few compromises aren't that bad, like the lack of USB Type-C.

  • Pros: Beautiful display, metal build, fast performance, solid battery, amazing value
  • Cons: No USB-Type C

  • Cons: Older Android Marshmallow

2. ASUS ZenFone 3 Laser

ASUS provided an update to the ZenFone 3 Laser, providing a 4 GB option that really made this mediocre device into something that shines in its segment. It's a little older, but that just means the price has gone down while providing really good performance. The laser autofocus lets you take great pictures without delay with a quick snap, so shoot away with abandon.

  • Pros: Sleeker aluminum body, excellent battery life, snappy performance, fast camera performance
  • Cons: Mediocre camera, screen hard to use outdoors, no NFC and USB Type-C
