    Phone Died/What is the best cheap Android phone on Sprint?

    My phone died, and I leave the country on Saturday. What is the best cheap phone to get?

    I cannot stand iPhones.

    Which phone is a good tradeoff for speed/price/battery life?

    One of the recent motos that supports Sprint such as

    https://www.bestbuy.com/site/motorol...lack/5889300.p

    For that one you will need sim 416Q which is included in this sim kit:

    Note do not buy this phone from Amazon as their's are being rejected by Sprint in some cases (two cases on SlickDeals).

    Will the E4 run on a Sprint postpaid account?

    This version of E4 will. It is factory unlocked and supports all 4 carriers, including postpaid.

    People are putting them on the free one year deal which is postpaid.

    I had the Samsung S4 forever. I loved that phone and it did everything I needed: good processing power, removable battery, unlocked bootloader with great roms, sturdy design, and it had a separate CDMA and LTE chip so I could use the phone and data at same time. But then it wasn't compatible with the new LTE bands so my data speeds were starting to dip.

    Last year I bought a new Samsung S7 off eBay for $300 and it's nice. Big screen, brighter, a tad faster., wireless charging, faster LTE bands with carrier aggregation, and better camera. But no removable battery, no voice and data at same time (I'm not enabling that wifi calling junk), and a locked bootloader... no roms.

    That said.... Is the E4 the best option on Sprint if you want a newer phone with an unlocked bootloader, and a variety of custom roms?

    The Moto G4 Plus has an unlockable bootloader and good camera (laser autofocus) and supports all carriers.

    I've been using one for a while and am very satisfied with it.

    There are lots of custom ROMs but they all have slight bugs.

    I've found the stock ROM with ElementalX Kernel, Magisk, and Xposed to be the best customization solution.

    Yeah I'm starting to have second thoughts about this S7. I may just go with the E4. Maybe just a little less processing power, but I don't really run any power apps on this phone anyways. I just really miss the customisation that was possible, Samsung and Sprint have me in a phone options prison right now.

    If you have insurance and plan on claiming your phone if you switch your phone they will not honor the claim keep that in mind
