There are phone options available for every budget!
We all know about phones that launch like the Galaxy S8, the iPhone 7/7 Plus, and the LG G6 that take over the airwaves these days, but not everyone wants to buy a device that costs over 600 dollars, shoot not everyone wants to buy a device that costs over 200 dollars.
But not much is said typically about prepaid devices that exist in the market these days. Carriers such as Cricket, Boost Mobile, and Virgin Mobile exist for those people who want to save a little money, while using their cellphone service.
These days, MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) can be stable enough to satisfy a vast majority of the people who need cellphones in their daily lives. Smartphones that are available on MVNOs are as capable as their flagship counterparts. This is not something that existed a few years ago.
As I kick around the mitten here these days (that’s Michigan for those who do not know), I’ve noticed Boost Mobile stores pop up on just about every corner. MVNOs (or Prepaid carriers for short) like Boost Mobile are a pretty easy way to get a decent phone and save hundreds of dollars while you’re at it. Because we care about every one who needs a phone these days, here’s a list of some Boost mobile phones that are available on the carrier. Click the header link to get pricing on each device.
The stylus wielding inexpensive alternative to phones like the Galaxy Note series has come back for a 3rd version. The G Stylo 3 specifications;
- 5.7″ display
- 13MP rear/ 5MP front facing camera
- 16GB storage (expandable via MicroSD) / 2GB of RAM
- Fingerprint scanner (rear mounted)
- Android 7 Nougat
- Snapdragon 435 Processor
Not a bad idea for someone who wants a big screen for not a huge price. The G Stylo and Stylo 2 both performed relatively well so, one could only believe that the G Stylo 3 would also perform nicely also. Also for those who are looking for a smartphone with an embedded stylus without the costs, the LG G Stylo 3 might be perfect. Click the title link if you are interested in buying the device.
Its hard to imagine that there have been so many versions of the LG Tribute, but alas, we have the LG Tribute. The inexpensive LG Android device does not have the most amazing features, however for those who need a basic device to use, the LG Tribute 5 should work out just fine. Here’s some specs:
- 8GB ROM/ 1GB RAM
- Android 5.1 Lollipop
- MicroSD expandable to 32GB
- 5MP Rear/5MP front facing camera
- Snapdragon 210 quad-core processor
I mean, not the best specs on earth, but not a bad idea for a kid, or for a backup device.
Samsung makes the affordable J series of phones for those who are in need of a decent device while saving some extra dollars to put in their pocket.

- 4G LTE capable
- 5.5″ touchscreen
- 8MP Rear Cam/5MP Front facing Cam
- 2GB RAM/ 16GB ROM
- MicroSD expanable to 256GB
- 2.2GHz Octa-core processor
- 3300mAh battery
Like I said, not a terrible device for the price. Check the link if you are interested in buying.
ZTE MAX XL
ZTE is known for their prepaid offerings, especially on Boost Mobile. ZTE always has a solid offering on tap for those who are interest in a new device.
