HTC One M9
REVIEW

HTC One M9 ( 32GB, gun metal)

The updated HTC One M9 packs speed and software improvements into a handset that remains lustworthy in middle age, but it doesn't exceed the competition where it counts.

ZTE Grand X
REVIEW

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.

Kyocera Hydro Life
REVIEW

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.

Motorola Moto E
REVIEW

Motorola Moto E ( black)

The Motorola Moto E is unquestionably cheap and has a set of specs that makes it more than capable of handling your basic everyday tasks. Its price, however, isn't much lower than the Moto G, which has a better camera, more powerful processor, improved screen and longer battery life. Unless you're shopping on a very tight budget, the Moto G is still the best value phone around.

REVIEW

HTC Desire 816 ( grey)

The HTC Desire 816's combination of solid design and quality performance strikes all the right chords to make it a compelling phone for its price.

Yezz Andy AC5
EDITORS' TAKE

Yezz Andy AC5 ( unlocked)

At $219 unlocked, the Andy AC5's 13-megapixel camera and quad-core processor may look tempting, but other handsets perform better overall.

Skip the ZTE Prelude altogether and nab another inexpensive prepaid handset, like the Nokia Lumia 521 or LG Optimus F6.

Kyocera Hydro Plus
REVIEW

Kyocera Hydro Plus ( Cricket Wireless)

Though the Kyocera Hydro Plus is an inexpensive water-resistant phone with an included music service, skip it for better and even cheaper splash-proof alternatives.
