|Bottom line|| |
Huawei's T-Mobile MyTouch is ideal for first-time smartphone users who want 4G speeds and decent specs, but be aware that you'll be buying into an antiquated OS.
Nokia's Lumia 521 is one of the best bargain smartphones on any platform, but skip it if LTE is of paramount concern.
Get the T-Mobile Prism 2 if you want an inexpensive and dependable 3G phone, but skip it if you prioritize speedy performance.
The reasonable $80 price tag, dual-core processor, and Android 4.0, make the LG Optimus L9 a reliable midlevel handset.
Its laundry list of features require time and effort to truly master, but the Galaxy S4 is the top choice for anyone looking for a big-screen, do-everything smartphone.
