|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.
The reasonable $80 price tag, dual-core processor, and Android 4.0, make the LG Optimus L9 a reliable midlevel handset.
Even if you're on a tight budget, you should skip Alcatel's One Touch Fierce in favor of a better prepaid phone.
At $99, the Alcatel One Touch Evolve is an affordable Android phone, but its dismal performance makes it not even worth that price.
A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
