|Bottom line|| |
At $99, the Alcatel One Touch Evolve is an affordable Android phone, but its dismal performance makes it not even worth that price.
Even if you're on a tight budget, you should skip Alcatel's One Touch Fierce in favor of a better prepaid phone.
Nokia's Lumia 521 is one of the best bargain smartphones on any platform, but skip it if LTE is of paramount concern.
If you’re looking for a compact Android handset, the LG Optimus F3 will satisfy prepaid customers. As an on-contract phone, however, look to other free smartphones that are better.
A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
