Top 7 Best Metro PCS Cell Phones 2018/2017



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.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is the successor of Samsung's premium Galaxy S6, joining other premium-specked smartphones with its 5.1-inch Quad HD always-on display, Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core 14nm CPU (4GB RAM), and 12-megapixel f/1.7-aperture camera with the Dual Pixel technology
