If you’re looking for a prepaid carrier in the United States, you have a ton of options. One of the best prepaid service providers out there is AT&T’s GoPhone service. There are a handful of solid GoPhone options out there, so we’re here to point you in the right direction if you’re looking for a list of the best AT&T prepaid phones out there.

You’ll notice that our list is a little short, as the Android phones offered by AT&T aren’t all that current or high-end. At the bottom of this post we’ll point you to a few other solid options that can still connect to AT&T’s network that aren’t offered through the carrier.

Editor’s note – We will be updating this list as more devices hit the market.
Update, October 2016: This month we removed the Motorola Moto E (2015) from our list to make room for a handful of great unlocked options.

Samsung Galaxy S6

While the Samsung Galaxy S6 might not be the latest and greatest from Samsung in 2016, it’s still a great handset that will provide a flagship level experience at a discount thanks to the arrival of its successor, the Galaxy S7. The Galaxy S6 brought with it a major overhaul to design and build quality – something that was definitely needed for the Samsung Galaxy S6 to better compete with the arguably more premium high-end smartphones on offer from the competition. A metal and glass unibody design allowed for the more elegant look and feel that is expected from a Samsung flagship, and worthy of the high price tag that the device commands, even if the changed build did result in previously staple features like expandable storage and replaceable batteries going by the wayside.

Despite the lack of microSD and removable battery, the Galaxy S6 is certainly not lacking in extras, with it retaining hardware features like a heart rate monitor and a fingerprint scanner, as well as a camera package that allows for one of the best smartphone camera experiences available even a year later. While replaceable batteries may no longer be available, Samsung also attempted to alleviate any battery life concerns you may have with the inclusion of fast charging and wireless charging capabilities.
