Samsung Galaxy Core Prime
REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Core Prime ( grey)

One of Verizon and MetroPCS' least-expensive phones, the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime makes a decent entry-level choice, but it still isn't as good as the competition.

The Mi Note Pro has what it takes to compete with current top phones, but few outside China will get to actually experience its power.

LG Volt
REVIEW

LG Volt

Affordable LTE connectivity and a long-lasting battery may be hampered by meager call quality, but the low price tag just might sway the right folks.

Huawei P8 Lite
REVIEW

Huawei P8 Lite ( white)

The Huawei P8 Lite's affordable unlocked price is compelling, but the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is a much better deal.

Xiaomi Redmi 2
REVIEW

Xiaomi Redmi 2

The low price of the Redmi 2 makes it an appealing option, but you'll be better off paying a bit more for Xiaomi's more premium offerings if you can afford to do so.

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua ( black)

The M4 Aqua starts well with its luscious looks and affordable price, but the abysmal camera and storage woes quickly take the shine off an otherwise decent handset.

Huawei Honor 6 Plus
REVIEW

Huawei Honor 6 Plus ( black)

With its good screen, strong processor and solid camera, the Honor 6 Plus is well-equipped for most all the social-networking fun you could want and doesn't ask for much cash in return. It's a shame about its clunky, outdated software, though, which does somewhat take the shine off.

Asus ZenFone 2
REVIEW

Asus ZenFone 2 ( 5.5in, 64GB, 4GB RAM)

The Asus ZenFone 2 is too expensive for its above-average ability, but if the price agrees with you, the smooth performance and splendid low-light camera won't disappoint.
