|Bottom line|| |
The LG Optimus V is a great entry-level Android smartphone if you want to go the prepaid route.
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.
The competitively priced Kyocera Rise is fitting for texting enthusiasts looking for a starter smartphone with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
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.
