It sports a big 5.7-inch 720p display, a powerful Snapdragon 410 processor, 8 GB of on-board storage and microSD expansion for your music and videos. It also comes with a pretty sizable 3,000 mAh battery and an included stylus that gives the product its namesake.

LG X Power

If you’re looking for something a little smaller than the Stylo 2, the LG X Power is also a great budget-friendly option from Sprint.

This device sports a perfectly-sized 5.3-inch 720p display, and is powered by 2 GB of RAM and a 1.8 GHz MediaTek processor. It also comes with 16 GB of on-board storage and microSD expansion up to 256 GB, so you should have no problem storing all your photos and videos on this device. Plus, it has a big 4,100 mAh battery, which should be more than enough to get you through a full day of use on a single charge.

  • 1.8 GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6755M processor

Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge

Want a good phone that does all the basics? The Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge could be exactly what you’re looking for. A newer member to Sprint’s Prepaid lineup, the phone is being offered for just $84 — a promotional price that sees it down from its “marketed” price of $168.

Powering the J3 Emerge is a Snapdragon 425 with 1.5GB RAM, and while we’d like to have seen 2GB, this should be a more than good enough processing package for everyday use, include some light gaming.

 

Specs

  • 5-inch 720 x 1280 TFT display, 294ppi
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 425
  • 1.5 GB of RAM
