We live in an age where even our kids need phones. Although some parents do allow it from a very young age, we think that’s an obvious mistake.
Spending too much time in front of a screen from an early age can develop other psychological problems. Some even blame the growing autism rate among children because of that.
Phones can be extremely addictive and harmful to the development of children. That’s why you should always take safety measurements and only allow usage for a few hours.
But, seeing as this topic is about kids and phones, we decided to tell you about the best ones that will fit perfectly the profile of children.
Without further ado, let’s start.
1. iPhone SE
Your ideal buy for a kid’s phone would be a medium-sized screen that would attract high levels of detail. While the iPhone SE certainly has an impressive FULL HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, the 4.7-inch screen is certainly a big plus.
But what makes this phone so great is the fact that is has a pretty solid camera. That may be enough to introduce your kid to photography at an early age.
The rear camera can capture beautiful imagery and can record videos in 4K.
As for the storage part, well the iPhone SE comes with a 16 or 64 GB of internal memory while the RAM isn’t specified even on their website.
The massive storage capacity means it’s more than capable of meeting all of your kid’s entertainment needs.
2. Google Pixel 3a
The first Android phone on our list and it’s the Google Pixel 3a. This phone has an impressive camera that outshines the SE’s. This makes it a great investment if your kid wants to get into video recording.
The screen is fairly bigger, a massive 5.6-inch OLED, and has 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of storage space.
This means that the phone can hold quality videos, imagery, and games. While it doesn’t come with an SD card slot, it is more than enough to meet all of the needs of your children.
3. Samsung Galaxy A10
Yet another Android phone on our list but this time it’s from industry giants Samsung.
This one is a highly affordable unit that is quickly becoming one of the most highly sought-after devices of 2024. The FULL HD resolution paired with the 5.8-inch screen makes it a must-have when it comes to watching YouTube or Netflix.
Your kid will have hours of fun watching their favorite cartoons with little to no effort. Samsung’s extremely friendly user interface makes it a great option for your kid.
It can run any game more than decently and the internal memory of 64 GB is more than enough to meet their needs.
The Galaxy A10 can also be used as a smart device, seeing as it is a smartphone. But you should be careful when turning your home into a smart one as your children can have direct access to key features through their phones.

4. Nokia 5.3
Nokia is making a comeback on the market, and it all starts with the Nokia 5.3. Although this isn’t the first smartphone by the Finnish superpower, it is one that is recommended for your kid.
First off, the phone is very affordable and has all the qualities needed for your kid to use. You aren’t looking for an iPhone X, and that’s exactly what the Nokia 5.3 is.
The impressive rear and frontal cameras are great for taking selfies and recording in FULL HD.
The 32/64 GB of internal memory is more than enough for your kid to download all the games on the store. With that said, Nokia 5.3 is an Android phone that uses the Google Play Store.
It can integrate wonderfully with various tracking apps, which will bring an added level of safety when browsing it and using it.
5. Motorola Moto G8
The G8 is an impressive unit that is quite affordable and quite user friendly. So far we’ve only numbered only a single iOS phone, as the Moto G8 is yet another Android unit.
But this one is quite different than the rest. For example, it has a huge 6.7-inch gorilla glass screen that can sustain fall damage with little to no effort.
The impressive 5000 mAh battery can keep your kid entertained for a whopping 9 hours straight. And don’t for a second that this is a heavy phone. The Moto G8 weighs only 197 grams making it one of the lightest 6.7-inch phones on the market!
That is more than enough when it comes to child use. Other impressive features on the G8 include a triple 48 MP rear camera with a 12 MP frontal camera, 64 GB of internal memory with 4 GB of RAM, and a camera that can record in FULL HD 30 FPS and 120 FPS.
This phone is one of the best on this list (spec-wise) and your kid will enjoy it a lot.
6. Asus ROG Phone 2
Asus is a well-known company that manufactures laptops and computer hardware. But they recently got themselves involved in making smartphones.
As such, it would only be a shame not to mention the ultimate kid phone for 2024 – the Asus ROG Phone 2.
Don’t take our word for it, we’re only saying what they’re saying. But what makes this phone so great? Well, the Asus ROG Phone 2 is designed for you to play games on.
The mega-hugely-awesomely impressive FULL HD, 4K, and 120 Hz screen offers the best gaming experience possible.
The slick design will appeal to every kid on the planet, and the 48 MP camera will tempt even mom to take a picture on. The 12 GB of RAM, 512 GB storage capacity (yes you read both of those things right), and the 6000 mAh battery makes this phone an absolute must-have.
Beware as the unit costs a fortune.
