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 Boom Mobile, and Boost Mobile. Both companies run on Sprint’s network, although Boost is owned by Sprint. Boom, on the other hand, is a newer company which offers competitive pricing and multiple carrier options.

Sprint Debuts New Underwhelming Prepaid Plans

Well, it looks like the days of Sprint being a poor-value brand with some lackluster prepaid options are coming to a middle. Although the company looked like it might be phasing out its Sprint Prepaid brand last year, it looks lie the indecisive company has updated the prepaid portion of its website with new plans.

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)

galaxy j3 emerge

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.

Available through Sprint brands including Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile, the new Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge features some of the same and a little bit of upgrade on what looks like a pretty basic middle-of-the-road phone.

Boost Mobile Finally Expands BYOP

Boost-Mobile-logo

Although bringing your own device (BYOP) is something most prepaid users prefer, Sprint has never been as accommodating as other carriers. Sprint’s Virgin Mobile does not support BYOP at all (even with a Sprint device), while Boost Mobile allows a very random (and ever-changing) list of phones which can be activated, provided they are unlocked. This prepaid phone whitelist was recently expanded.

iPhone 7 Launching on Prepaid

As you probably know, the iPhone 7 was unveiled on September 7. There was a lot of hype, as this is Apple’s newest flagship phone, and so far I’d say the launch has been successful. Both T-Mobile and Sprint have reported record breaking sales for the pre-order and T-Mobile has already sold four times more iPhone 7 than it did iPhone 6. Sprint stated that its pre-order numbers were up 375% from last year.

Boost Mobile, a Sprint MVNO, seems to have had good luck with its Warp smartphone lineup. Serving as an upgraded version of the Warp Elite, the ZTE Warp 7 will exclusively hit Boost Mobile stores on September 5. When the ZTE Warp Elite was released, it was going for $179.99 and even though there aren’t a lot of differences between the Warp Elite and the Warp 7, the latter is creating quite a splash given that it will sell for $99.99.

Boost and Virgin to Carry iPhone 6s

Maybe it’s because I’m an Android fan, but it doesn’t seem like it could have been a year since the introduction of the larger sized iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. In fact, I still remember writing lots of articles about different companies carrying these devices for the prepaid sector and comparing prices. However, since a full year has passed, it can really only mean one thing: details on the next iPhone are out, and companies are already announcing that they’ll be carrying it soon.

Boost Offers Free Case with LG G Stylo Purchase

Phone cases are generally pretty expensive, especially if you want something that is both functional and looks nice. While I’m not a huge fan of the folio cases, which feature a flap that closes over the front of your smartphone, I have to say that the LG Quick Circle cases are pretty nice. And now, when you purchase a LG G Stylo from Boost Mobile, Boost will throw in a free case to go along with it!

ZTE Warp Elite Comes to Boost

In the prepaid market, phones that retail for less than $200 tend to be pretty much the same. No matter how many I write about, at the end of the day they are all designed specifcally for consumers who want a decent smartphone that can do basic things but doesn’t cost in the $500 range that flagships run. However, if you’re looking for a smartphone that can do just a little bit more, then the ZTE Warp Elite definitely is worth a look.

The main downside to monthly plans is that most of the larger companies don’t offer top-ups if you have a month of heavy use.

Boost Updates Eligible Phone List

Boost Mobile is owned by Sprint and thus is subject to Sprint’s ridiculous and complicated policies for activating devices on its network. The Sprint blacklist is constantly changing, and it looks like the most recent changes are mostly to remove WiMax devices from the lineup, with one surprising exception: the Samsung Galaxy SIII. I’m not sure what prompted Boost to remove this popular device from their list, as it’s not exclusively WiMax like many of the others.

Boost Allows Disable of Video Throttling

For those of you who didn’t actually read all of the Terms and Conditions for Sprint’s prepaid company Boost Mobile, it might be a bit of a shock to hear that Boost Mobile formerly included a notice that all video streaming, regardless of the amount of data used, was throttled to 3G speeds of around 600 Kbps. This little clause has been around for a while, but never really got all that much fanfare. And now, fortunately, it’s gone. Kind of.
