The Best Phones from Metro PCS 2015



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.

#1. The Samsung Galaxy S6

Average Stars Awarded:



Analysis:

Not having the dual-edged screen (+) might be a minor con against its Edge sibling, but the Samsung Galaxy S6 still comes with a premium-class array of pros and cons... (more)

What We Like:

  • Being able to function without NFC might make Samsung Pay better than Apple's version, if Samsung's word holds true
  • Corning's Gorilla Glass 4 anti-scratch technology debuts with this device
  • Its inbuilt wireless charging capability is the first of its kind
  • Its relatively small 14nm 64-bit CPU chip might translate to a smoother performance compared to previous Samsung flagships

Analysis:

Suffering from a VGA frontal camera (-) (yes, VGA cams apparently still exist) that sits above its 4.5-inch FWVGA display (-), the conventionally flat LG Leon falls a rank below its curved Magna and Spirit siblings... (more)

Analysis:

Attempting to tip the market scale more to Windows is this 5-inch Lumia model that brings the Windows Phone OS 10 (+) to Microsoft's smartphone family via a free after-purchase upgrade... (more)

What We Like:

  • The Cortana personal assistant is a selling point unique to Lumia smartphones
  • The Windows Phone OS 10 is a rather fresh spec for Microsoft's smartphone roster

Description:

Fifth generation Samsung flagship smartphone with a 16-megapixel camera, a special power-saving mode and a 2.5Ghz 4-core CPU.

What We Like:

  • The 16-megapixel camera (with apparently fast auto-focus) is nothing to spit at
  • The Ultra power-saving mode could be interesting

Average Stars Awarded:



Analysis:

The 4.5-inch LG F60 seems to be like most 2014 models from the L-series... (more)

What We Like:

    Taking photos with specific hand gestures sounds like an interesting way to snap shots

More:

#6. The Samsung Galaxy Avant

Average Stars Awarded:



Analysis:

The Samsung Galaxy Avant apparently does bring something fresh to the market, as its 4.5-inch qHD display fronts a 16GB internal memory and a 1.5GB RAM - both obviously higher compared to other mid-range models... (more)

What We Like:

  • The 16GB internal storage, while many comparable models stay below 8GB
  • The Easy Mode for users who want a simplified interface

More:

#7. The Samsung Galaxy Light

Average Stars Awarded:



Analysis:

Its quad core, 1.4 GHz CPU system and 4G LTE wireless technology put the Galaxy Light on the map, but it remains a lower-cost version of the ever-expanding Samsung Galaxy family of phones... (more)

What We Like:

  • It is a way to own a decently-equipped Galaxy family phone at a lower price
  • That it sports a quad core processor (for such an entry-level phone)

More:

#8. The ZTE ZMax

Average Stars Awarded:



Analysis:

With Gorilla Glass (v3.0) protection and Dolby (DM3+) sound enhancements leading its features, the ZTE ZMax might just have an edge over other middle class phablets... (more)

What We Like:

  • A 3400mAh battery capacity is quite high for a mid-budget phablet
  • Scratch-resistance via Corning Gorilla Glass is always nice to find in wide-screen smartphones

More:

#9. The LG 450

Average Stars Awarded:



Analysis:

Despite being a pretty limited basic flip phone, LG's 450 model comes with some perks that may be enjoyed by elder users or those practical buyers with slight problems in vision or hearing... (more)
