  • The Kyocera DuraForce is an adventure-ready Android smartphone that strikes a nice balance between price and performance.


  • 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.


  • You can't beat the price of the Moto G, but the more expensive and more powerful Nexus 5 remains your shrewdest unlocked Android option.


  • Sporting an outstanding outright price of $179 for the base model, it's something many people believe to be mind-boggling. Just when we thought $349 for the Nexus 5 was pretty darn good, but this obviously takes the cake. It's unlocked, there's variety with its color casings, and the Android experience is also easy to understand, so it's hard not to like it. All told, Motorola is defining what it means to be an entry-level player.


  • The Moto G is the best-built, unlocked smartphone under $200 available today.


  • Although it does have some flaws, the $199.99 HTC One X+ is currently the best Android buy on AT&T.


  • We can't say that HTC "took a sad song and made it better" by upgrading to the One X+, as the One X handset is pretty capable. HTC, however, changed the specs where it most counts, and as a result we have a handset that can go neck and neck with the seasonal Android flagships in everything but camera performance.


    The overclocked quad-core processor might be still a 40nm affair, but it delivers benchmarks on par with the Optimus G and Note II, and, unlike the G, the HTC One X+ ships with Jelly Bean out of the box.


  • The HTC One X+ for AT&T gains quad-core power and pumped-up internal storage to help keep it in the thick of the pack, if not quite on top of it.


  • If you're looking for an inexpensive Android phone to fall in love with, AT&T's $50 Pantech Discover is it.


  • Are you strapped for cash and still yearn for some kind of sweet smartphone, but don't want to settle on a typical entry-level device? Well, you're in luck because the Pantech Discover is going to be the right fit for you albeit, it's still without its own set of flaws. Overall, it doesn't outperform the class leading contenders in the space, but rather, the Discover has that nice balance between price point and feature set.


  • The Pantech Discover for AT&T gets you the same features and performance you'll find in smartphones that cost more than twice the price, making it the best budget phone there is.


  • With top specs and a striking design, HTC's Windows Phone 8X makes a smart choice for anyone ready to dive into the Windows Phone OS.


  • Taking into account the $99.99 on-contract price attached to the HTC 8X right from the onset, it's at an attractive price point that would handedly reel in some curious bystanders. To HTC's credit, we absolutely love the direction they went with the 8X's design, as it seemingly stands out magnificently from the staple of cold industrial designs we're normally bombarded with. When you talk about the wow factor, they've really hit out of the ballpark with this one, but resounding beauty is more than skin deep.



  • The HTC 8X is the best-looking Windows Phone 8 handset on T-Mobile, but you'll pay extra for the design.
