If you’re looking to move to a prepaid carrier in the United States, you have a ton of options. One of the best quality prepaid carriers out there is Boost Mobile, powered by Sprint. We’ve already taken a look at the best phones you can buy on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, and now it’s Boost Mobile’s turn. This prepaid carrier has a wide selection of premium devices, and to be honest, it can get a little confusing at times. So, we’re here to help you make that decision.

Many of the best options from Boost Mobile are pretty pricey when buying directly through the carrier. Keep in mind that these are all off-contract prices. You’ll likely be able to find them a bit cheaper on Amazon. Without any more hesitation, let’s get started!

Samsung Galaxy S7

Samsung did a killer job with their 2015 flagship smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Design-wise, many would say those two phones were close to perfect. The company forwent a plastic design and instead included glass front and back panels with an aluminum frame. They weren’t without their flaws, though. The S6 and S6 Edge didn’t offer expandable storage or removable batteries — two features Samsung has been known to include in all its smartphones for years.

Now the Galaxy S7  has made its way to the masses, and it fixes many of the problems the S6 line introduced last year. While it doesn’t offer a removable battery, Samsung included expandable storage on the handset in case the 32 GB of on-board storage isn’t enough. Samsung mostly stuck to the same design this time around, though they did shrink down the camera bump on the back and made the device a little thicker to make room for larger battery.

In terms of specs, this is a top-of-the-line smartphone. It comes with a Quad HD Super AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM, a great 12 MP rear-facing camera and it runs the latest version of Android. Seriously, this is an incredible smartphone. It’s a little pricey, but all in all, we think the high asking price is worth it.

Specs

  • 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 577 ppi
  • Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • 32 GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion up to 200 GB

LG X power

Looking for an Android smartphone under $100 that will last more than one day on a single charge? LG’s X power might be just the thing for you.

On the surface, the X power is just a standard mid-range device. It has a 5.3-inch 720p display, 2 GB of RAM, microSD expansion, an 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera. The biggest selling point here is the non-removable 4,100 mAh battery. That’s pretty big for a device that’s just 5.3 inches. For comparison, devices like the S7 Active or Mate 8 feature similar batteries in larger bodies.
