Default Hot Smartphones On The Market With Straighttalk

Hello,

What are some hot android smartphones out in the market to purchase from ebay or Craigslist and hook up on Straighttalk with no contract?

A friend of mine is interested and likes to have speed, fast browsing features, fast live webcam, and quality pictures at priority.

What is your guy's opinion?

Thanks in advance.

What is your budget? If there is none, then the Samsung Galaxy S III is one of the best on the market right now.

Hello,

My friend is the one looking for a phone. Their budget is $200. I love the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Jelly Bean and yes the s3 is amazing but out of their budget.

I wish I can unlock my Verizon 4GLTE Samsung Galaxy Nexus onto straighttalk and sell it to them. However, the sim cards will not work, since straighttalk is gsm.

Unfortunately you can't get super high end with $200, but I would take a look at phones such as the Inspire, Sensation, or Vibrant. They're pretty close to $200. The Galaxy Nexus is a great phone, but it will run you to about $400 with the taxes and shipping fees which is double your budget.

Hi,

Those phones are too old. It's best to just keep checking online for a used GNexus or HTC One x. Google is selling the Nexus for $349.

Don't complain that they're "too old". A $200 budget is going to get an older device anyway.

What xTye said is right $200 isn't much. The Galaxy Nexus is sold for $349 plus tax and shipping which brings it to about $400.

your friend is gonna have to settle for lukewarm phone or even a cold phone.

tell your friend to check ebay or craiglist to see if they can get a decent enough phone used.
