|Bottom line|| |
Virgin Mobile is a predominantly prepaid carrier that offers a wide variety of handsets and services for a young audience.
The Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G LTE is a good Android choice, but for the same price, the LG Viper gives you greater camera power.
Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X.
If you're in need of a low-cost prepaid phone, the Awe will satisfy, but if you want a quick-moving phone, move on.
Nokia's Lumia 521 is one of the best bargain smartphones on any platform, but skip it if LTE is of paramount concern.
