ZTE Grand X
The ZTE Grand X will satisfy your basic smartphone needs, but the carrier has better prepaid handsets at the same price, if not cheaper.

If you're willing to trade screen size for a superior physical keyboard, the BlackBerry Classic is a fantastic productivity phone for old-school QWERTY junkies.
Get the Kyocera DuraForce if a rugged handset is a priority; otherwise, AT&T has other handsets in the same price range with better cameras and faster internal speeds.
Microsoft Lumia 535 ( blue)
The Lumia 535's cheap price, big screen and colourful body earn it plenty of points, but its lack of 4G LTE, unimpressive display and sometimes sluggish interface mean this phone isn't suitable for anything more than the basics.
Posh Orion Pro X500 ( white)
The Orion Pro's disappointing features completely overshadow its low price and dual-SIM setup.
Although the YotaPhone 2's e-ink display is wonderfully novel, and can result in much better battery life, the phone needs to be considerably cheaper if it's going to be a sensible purchase over other Android phones.
HTC Desire 510 ( black)
The HTC Desire 510 doesn't have the specs to excite committed tech fans, but it handles the basics well, has 4G LTE for superfast data speeds, and it doesn't cost the earth.
The Sonim XP7 stands up to the elements without sacrificing performance, but you'll need to decide if its durability is worth its premium price.
CAT B15Q ( black)
The Cat B15Q is a thoroughly rugged phone, but archaic connectivity options and a disappointing display keep it from shining outdoors.
Motorola Droid Turbo ( 64GB, black ballistic nylon)
Even with its hefty design, the Motorola Droid Turbo's robust battery, powerful processor and vivid display put it on the short list for Verizon customers.
Nokia Lumia 735 ( green)
Although the Lumia 735 doesn't have the best camera, it's colourful, curvy and comfortable, has a good display and an affordable price -- all of which go a long way to making up for it.
Samsung Galaxy Note Edge ( charcoal black)
Samsung's swooshing Galaxy Note Edge is a triumph of novel design, but its high price tag and minimal extra usability make for a niche appeal.
Google Nexus 6 ( 32GB)
Although the Nexus 6 trails the slimmer Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in processor performance and native productivity features, it's still the most powerful pure Android handset available and the largest Nexus yet.
Huawei Ascend Y550 ( white)
Even with its affordable price, the Huawei Ascend Y550 offers little to get excited about. If you're after a budget Android phone, you'd be wise to look elsewhere.

HTC Desire Eye
Although its flash-equipped front camera is eye-catching, its image results aren't as impressive as I'd hoped. Still, the flash will illuminate your face where other phones can't, and the Desire Eye comes with fun software, is well-specced and waterproof too.
Sony Xperia Z3v ( white)
Sony's variant on the Xperia Z3 is nearly the same excellent overall phone on Verizon, albeit with a slightly dated external design.
Huawei Honor 6 ( white)
Its software might not be perfect, but the Honor 6 packs an impressive lineup of specs for a brilliant price. If you want the crisp screen and fast speeds of the top-end phones but don't fancy the price tag, the Honor 6 is a great phone to go for.
LG G3 Vigor ( burgundy red)
The LG Vigor has much of the same style and features of the G3, but at a fraction of the price.
Posh Memo S580 ( black)
Lackluster performance and a poor display make the dual-SIM Posh Mobile Memo not even worth its budget price.
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.
