|Bottom line|| |
Though the ZTE Score M makes satisfying calls, its sluggish processor and network speeds aren’t worth the trouble.
MetroPCS' LG Motion 4G is worth it for price-conscious customers who want a contract-free 4G LTE-enabled device, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a swift processor.
Though the Avid features Ice Cream Sandwich and operates on MetroPCS 4G network, the carrier has other LTE devices that are faster, smoother, and sometimes, even cheaper.
Consider the Huawei Vitria if you're looking for an affordable Android LTE phone, and aren't put off by entry-level specs.
Nokia's Lumia 521 is one of the best bargain smartphones on any platform, but skip it if LTE is of paramount concern.
