The 3G-only LG Realm isn't a terrible phone, but $20 more gets you the Motorola Moto G's heartier hardware and better design.
With disappointing call quality and no features to speak of, the LG Unify's only value comes from the flexible service plan.
LG Wine III ( U.S. Cellular)
While the LG Wine III is a solid and reliable feature handset, U.S. Cellular has cheaper alternatives worth considering.
Sony XPERIA Z3 ( black)
The Sony Xperia Z3 is Sony's most formidable to date with a formidable display and promising features that easily give Android competition from HTC, LG and Samsung a run for their money.
Though the ZTE ZMax has some design flaws, they're minor enough to overlook if you want an incredibly inexpensive phablet off-contract.
Sony Xperia Z3 Compact ( white)
Although it's a disappointment Sony hasn't increased the screen resolution along with its size, and the camera's quirks are rather odd, the Xperia Z3 Compact's improved design, vast amounts of power, decent battery life and waterproof body help it maintain its position as one of the best mini flagships around.
Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2
If price is your guide, Alcatel's OneTouch Fierce 2 is one of your lowest-cost choices. Otherwise, opt for a Motorola Moto G or Samsung Galaxy Avant instead.
Kyocera Hydro Life
The Kyocera Hydro Life delivers useful features for a low price, but its disappointing performance makes it worth considering only if you absolutely need a water-resistant smartphone.
LG G Vista
Given its midrange specs, the LG G Vista for AT&T and Verizon is a solid buy if you want a big "phablet" at a low cost.
The BlackBerry Passport's bullish focus on productivity spawns a fantastic keyboard, but its blocky shape makes one-handed use difficult.
