The Best Phones from Metro PCS 2014



If you're interested in Metro PCS's subscription plans, you should probably know that the phones they carry are mostly entry-level (texting phones) to mid-range smartphones (mostly operating on Android OS). They only have a few high-end models, and if you're looking for Apple devices, you won't find any of them under this carrier. But then, high-end and popular doesn't always translate to the best, does it? You just might be surprised.

Here's our verdict on the best Metro CPS phones, according to a scientific compilation and averaging of their online review scores.
