The Speed's price may be tempting, but skip it for better prepaid handsets that are faster and more reliable.
Sharp Aquos Crystal ( white)
Don't fret about the unremarkable features -- the Sharp Aquos Crystal is a great buy with a compelling edgeless display that renders it unlike any phone currently on the market.
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.
Kyocera Hydro Icon
The Kyocera Hydro Icon might be inexpensive and waterproof, but a general lack of noteworthy features and a rather poor camera make this one tough to recommend.
Boost Max ( Boost Mobile)
Consider the Boost Max if you want a cheap Android handset with a lot of screen. But if you can pay a little extra, the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 is the better budget phablet.
ZTE Warp 4G ( Boost Mobile)
At $199 sans contract, the ZTE Warp 4G is the best choice for frugal shoppers on Boost Mobile.
ZTE Warp Sequent ( Boost Mobile)
The Warp Sequent's impressive performance and decent midrange specs are a step up for ZTE, but its sluggish 3G speeds and price don't merit a purchase.
Samsung Array ( Boost Mobile)
The Samsung Array excels at communication, but anyone wanting more out of a phone should look elsewhere.
LG Venice ( Boost Mobile)
Boost's LG Venice has respectable midrange specs including a snappy processor and a vivid screen, but if you want 4G data speeds, look elsewhere.
Samsung Galaxy Rush ( Boost Mobile)
Android 4.0 and an affordable price help make Boost Mobile's Samsung Galaxy Rush a decent no-contract option, but lower-end specs are disappointing nevertheless.
