Best-Rated Metro PCS Phones May 2017



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). 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 PCS phones, according to a scientific compilation and averaging of their online review scores.

#1.

#1. iPhone 7 Plus
Average Stars Awarded:
Description:

The iPhone 7 Plus features a quartet of fresh (as far as iPhones go) specs on the outside...

Noteworthy:

  • Performance: The iPhone 7 Plus is hailed as being twice as fast as the iPhone 6, with a 64-bit A10 Fusion chip and an M10 motion coprocessor under the hood
  • Special: it brings back Apple's signature Touch ID fingerprint technology, but this time through a solid-state, Taptic-Engine-powered pressure-sensing Home button
  • Imaging: it brings the dual-rear-camera technology to the iPhone by touting two 12-megapixel shooters bedecked with a quad-LED flash, 4K imaging, and a sapphire lens cover

#2. iPhone 7
Average Stars Awarded:
Description:

Apple's very first splash-ready (IP67-grade) iPhone, the iPhone 7, responds to the bevy of 2016-released high-end Androids with its solid-state Taptic Engine Home button (with Touch ID), 4.7-inch LED-backlit 3D Touch Retina HD screen, and 12-megapixel sapphire-covered camera with 4K video support and a quad-LED-light true-tone flash system...

Worth mentioning:

  • Special: it reinvents the signature iPhone Home button into a solid-state (cannot be physically pressed) taptic-feedback pressure-sensitive key-slash-fingerprint-reader
  • Imaging: it graces its 4K-video 12-megapixel f/1.8 main camera with a promising quad-LED true tone flash and a 6-element lens touting a sapphire crystal cover

#3. Samsung Galaxy S7
Average Stars Awarded:
Description:

Samsung built around the premium-tier specs of the Galaxy S6 for its MWC 2016 Galaxy S7, a 5.1-inch Quad HD always-on-screen flagship equipped with the 14nm Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core (2.1GHz + 1.6GHz) processor, a 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, and a 64GB UFS 2.0 memory with an up-to-200GB top-up memory support...

Noteworthy:

  • Special: it has two photodiodes on its pixels (instead of one) through the Dual Pixel camera technology, which means that its 12-megapixel camera potentially focuses quicker and more-accurately than conventional solutions
  • Connectivity: it promises up to 450Mbps maximum data speeds on LTE Cat 9 networks, which is blazing fast when compared to the 300Mbps and 150Mbps max data rates scored by many of its rivals

#4. iPhone 6S Plus
Average Stars Awarded:
Description:

The 2015 iPhone 6S Plus takes after its predecessor (iPhone 6 Plus) in terms of its 5.5-inch screen, though this time, the 3D Touch technology, which enables new touch gestures based on the pressure applied, is at the ready...

Noteworthy:

  • Performance: The iPhone 6S Plus supplants the iPhone 6 Plus's A8 chip for an A9 CPU with an inbuilt M9 motion coprocessor, which as of its release, is Apple's most capable mobile processor
  • Special: it introduces 3D Touch (unofficially known as Force Touch), a pressure-sensing display technology that apparently facilitates a more accurate tactile feedback from the screen
  • Imaging: it escapes the 8-megapixel limitation of the previous four iPhones with its 4K-video-recording 12-megapixel True Tone flash camera

#5.

#5. iPhone 6S
Average Stars Awarded:
Description:

The 2015 edition of Apple's yearly September event introduced the iPhone 6S (alongside the 6S Plus), a slightly-thicker (7.1mm) 4.7-inch follow-up to the iPhone 6 that welcomes the 3D Touch pressure-sensing technology previously offered by other Apple products to the brand's smartphone lineup...

What We Noted:

  • Performance: The iPhone 6S claims an up-to-70% more efficient task-handling performance with its 64-bit A9 CPU (M9 coprocessor), as opposed to the iPhone 6 with its A8 chip
  • Design: it offers a Rose Gold color option this time, primarily so that users can match their purchase to an iWatch of the same color
  • Special: it introduces the 3D Touch pressure-sensitive display technology, which recognizes inputs based on how hard you press the screen
  • Imaging: it finally upgrades the iPhone's main camera resolution from 8 megapixels (sported by the previous three models) to 12, which incidentally boasts a 4K video capability

#6.

#6. Samsung Galaxy S6
