Looking for a cheap large-screen phone for T-Mobile

by slipd / October 22, 2014 1:54 AM PDT

What are some of the cheapest large-screen (at least 4.4") smartphones that'll support 4G LTE with T-Mobile in the US?

For example, the LG F6 is about ~$100 new, but I was wondering if there's anything better out there under $150? I'm okay with used or older model phones.

Or how can I do this research myself? Like, how do I know if a random phone from Amazon/Ebay is compatible with T-Mobile's 4G LTE?

How about 3G / HSPA+ instead?

Okay then, what about without LTE? Besides the LG F6, are there any good phones under $200 that'll support T-Mobile's 3G / HSPA+?

Didn't find such.

The problem is pretty simple. Smart phones cost more than this to make so flipping out a 20 buck radio for another 20 buck radio gets you squat.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
