So you have decided to go for a prepaid plan and want to go with Sprint, but what phone will you get? We have already showed you the best phones on the Now Network, but every carrier also has a set of devices that are priced and optimized for their prepaid services. These are the smartphones we are focusing on today.
We have already told you what our favorite prepaid smartphones for Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile are. I am not a huge fan of Sprint, but they are still a big player in the USA. This means many of you probably love them! We will show you what the best options in the list are, but we decided to reduce this specific list to the top 3 phones (we chose 3 for the other carriers). Sprint only offers 5 prepaid options, so it would be unfair to do a top 5 list.
Without further ado, let’s jump into this list and get your shopping started!
Samsung Galaxy S5
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the top phone in Sprint’s available options. It also happens to be he only smartphone in the list that is offered at a high price. The phone costs $599.99, which goes right in line with how much the phone costs everywhere else (off-contract, of course).
As it has no real competition within Sprint’s prepaid options, it happens to be the biggest and baddest device around. Its specs include a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a capable 2800 mAh battery and a 5.1-inch 1080p display.
It’s a beauty if you can afford the hefty off-contract price.
Those who want iOS, and iOS only, don’t have many options. The only Apple smartphone sold for Sprint’s prepaid services is the iPhone 4s. It’s not a new phone, nor is it amazing anymore, but the iPhone 4s offers quite a good experience for those who prefer the simplicity and clean nature of Apple’s interface.
Oh, and it happens to cost only $149.99. That would be the off-contract price, guys. It’s a sweet deal, if you ask me.
Sharp AQUOS Crystal
Out of the remaining 3 smartphones on the list, I have to say my favorite is the Sharp AQUOS Crystal. It is probably not the strongest of the three, but I chose it because it’s offered at an affordable price and carries fairly good specs. I also kept in mind that it happens to be the best-looking smartphone of the pack.
This phone is a beauty. It comes with a solid construction and what seems like a bezel-less front that will leave anyone in awe. Specs are fair, too. Packed inside is a Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a 5-inch 720p display and a 2040 mAh battery. Not bad for $149.99, right?!
