Vlogs are definitely one of the most fun-filled and engaging pieces of content you can watch online, but many shy away from getting into vlogging themselves despite their interest. Most of the time, it’s because of the common misconception that you need high-end equipment to make good vlogs, when in fact, many famous local vloggers like Jeorella have mentioned that they only use their smartphones to film their vlogs. The good news is, you don’t have to splurge a lot on an expensive model for its high-quality camera to get started with vlogging. Here are some affordable smartphones that budding vloggers can check out with great lenses for less:
