Boost Mobile Discounted Phones

Boost-Mobile-logo

Boost Mobile, a Sprint prepaid brand, is what I like to call the dinosaur in the room, as it has such strict rules on phones used on its network. For this reason, anytime Boost has a really good discount on a device, it’s noteworthy—after all, you have to use their devices right? So, if you’re looking for a great Boost device, then check out these sweet discounted phones.

As a note, there is never an expiration date on Boost’s phone discounts (many times it’s until supplies run out) so be aware that they may or may not be available for very long. However, at the time of writing, these were some of the better deals:

LG Tribute HD

$49.99 (reg. $79.99)

LG Tribute hD

This device is a good mid-range device with an 8MP camera, and Android Marshmellow. It’s not going to have the best camera, and may get a little sluggish over time, but for the price, it’s pretty decent.

LG X Power

$79.99 (reg. $129.99)

LG X Power

For the price, this device is a good choice. It has a decent processor, a slightly curved design, and a front camera designed for selfies. The battery is also a good size, which means you’ll have more time talking, texting, and playing on apps.

Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge

$79.99 (reg. $129.99)

This is a borderline entry-level device and, out of all of the phones on this list, is probably the least impressive. However, if you’re looking for a device that will last the full day, has a decent speed, and can do most basic things, then this device will definitely work better than others at a similar range.

Apple iPhone 6

$199.99 (reg. $299.99)

iphone 6

Although this is the 16 GB version, the iPhone 6 remains a very solid Apple device, and the price tag makes it excellent for anyone who is interested in trying an Apple without paying the hefty price tag. Also, if you decide you like it, this devices is still new enough to have a decent sell-back price.

Samsung Galaxy S5

$349.99 (reg. $499.99)

galaxy S5

As the most expensive device on our list, the Samsung Galaxy S5 might seem like a bad choice, but this flagship has quite a few features that most of the other devices here will lack. This premium phone is durable and offers cool features like the ability to track heart rate. It is an older version of Android than the others, but is still a good device for Samsung fans.

Prepaid Faceoff: Boost Mobile vs. Ring Plus

Boost-Mobile-logo

Vs.

ringplus-logo

With the massive number of prepaid MVNOs and carrier options, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of it all and even harder to compare and decide which company is the right one for you. So, every once in a while we’re going to go through and do a Face-off of two popular companies, comparing plans and services to help you better decide.

Today, we’ll look at Boost Mobile and Ring Plus. Both of the plans run on Sprint’s network, and it’s said that the companies have the best valued plans on Sprint’s network, so I thought we’d put them head to head.

Here’s how they compare:

Wednesday App Review: Choices

choices

When I was a kid I absolutely loved reading the “choose your own adventure” style books. Something about being able to control the character (and sometimes prevent them from doing something incredibly stupid) was kind of exciting to me. However, I’ve generally avoided apps that are similar as they usually seem to be aimed at pre-teen girls, and most look like in-app purchase hogs. But, this week, I decided to take the leap and try the app Choices by Pixelberry Studios. And I have to say that it wasn’t entirely what I expected.

Red Pocket Offers $10 Essential Plan on AT&T, Sprint

Red Pocket is one of the few MVNOs which offers plans from all four carriers, allowing its customers to have the most variety while still sticking with a company they are familiar with. While the company has always been a little uncompetitive when it comes to the higher-priced plans, I have to say that the most recent $10/month plan is actually pretty sweet.
