Top 6 Best Sprint Android phones 2017

Android phones are direct competitors of the iPhone, offering the same kind of experience with tons of apps and a large and multi-touch touch-screen. Contrary to the iPhone, however, Android smartphones rely on an open-source operating system and can be manufactured by various manufacturers and you'll see Motorola Android phones, Samsung and a lot of HTC Android smartphones, to name a few. This list computes the best Sprint Android phones based on multiple reviews.
