|Bottom line|| |
Though you won't get blazing data or processing speeds on the Kyocera Event, as an affordable smartphone it's an excellent choice.
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 LG Optimus V is a great entry-level Android smartphone if you want to go the prepaid route.
A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
