Hey, Papamalo, I have moved this thread into the Virgin Mobile forum, since those users will know best which phones to recommend.

Personally, I'd say to get the Evo V 4G. Since your profile says you are in San Francisco, you would likely have access to WiMax for faster data speeds. It comes preloaded with ICS, has a nice large and bright screen, and is just an all around nice phone.

the best phone is the evo v, but it is also the most expensive android phone ($300) and is the only 4G phone. if you want to go cheap go for the optimus elite. its not as good as the evo but for the price, it gets the job done. you also might want to check out the one v. its $200 larger screen then the optimus and comes with ics and a nice camera.

hope this helped!

The iPhone 4/4S is the most expensive virgin mobile phones set at $550 and $650, respectively. Not to mention they're 3G only.

The Optimus V is a very solid device the forum community is strong. May not be as powerful as the others but once you find the sweet spot it can hold its own.

I'm sorry, but no. I understand it has a strong modding community but it is hardly the "best android phone". First, it has little storage for apps -- even rooted I ran out of memory for apps. Then there is the tiny 3.2" screen. For what it is, as an older Android phone for beginners, it does fine. But now, especially if you are wanting a beginner phone, the Optimus Elite is a much better beginner phone (more memory, larger screen, supports Flash, etc.). I'm sure you'll bring up the point that the Elite does not yet have the modding community the V does, then again, beginners typically are not modders.

Which brings me back to the Evo V, which also has quite a few mods available as the mods for the Evo 3D only need minor changes to work on Evo V -- giving those modders a huge head start. Plus it has a large screen, lots of storage, etc.

That is all true but remember not every one will want to spend $300 on a phone.

Agreed, which is why I mentioned the Optimus Elite -- which is very close in price (about $25) to the Optimus V for a much better phone.

Remember that the OP was requesting a good phone on VM, not necessarily the "best", let's just give suggestions with pros/cons and try and stay as far from arguments as possible.

According to the thread title, the OP is looking for the Best android phone for VIRGIN MOBILE.

The Evo and the One are probably the best on VMUSA right now with the Elite being #3.

The Evo V is still what I feel is the best, particularly in an area that has WiMax. If someone didn't want the Evo, I'd suggest the One V over the Triumph; a better processor, nicer screen, more memory, better camera, and for a cheaper price.

Then again, I'm hoping you were being sarcastic. The Triumph, while it had the best specs of any VM phone prior to this Spring/Summer, also had (from what I've read) the most problems of any VM phone.

Do not even consider the Triumph. Price plays a key role here.

You want a solid device, somewhat outdated, but deffently solid all around for the money? Optimus V-$130

Willing to spend more for a better processor, better camera and has Ice Cream Sandwich? HTC One V-$200

You have WiMAX available in your area? Want the power of a dual core processor? Want the "best" android phone VM offers for the most money? HTC Evo V 4G-$300

Just gotta have that iPhone? Slap down $550 for the iPhone 4, $650 for the iPhone 4S.

Long story short, I'd jump for the Evo V 4G. It is the flagship of VM for now and is a proven workhorse. A 4.5 star review from almost 300 people on VM's website? A slew of accessories? And arguably the best prepaid phone for the price... It has a lot going for it. If you have the money, go get yourself one. I have had it since it launched, and I must say it is not only worth every penny, it is a phone that next year you won't hate yourself for owning.

I have to disagree a bit; while the Evo V 4G is the best phone for the price on VM, it is beat by the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for the best phone for the price on prepaid.

Touché... however, that is comparing apples to oranges. (CDMA vs. GSM, unlocked vs. locked, ect.)

(After this phone, I'm switching carriers, don't get me wrong, I love my Evo, but I'd rather be on T-Mobile for the price. Besides, even if their "4G" isn't LTE, it's still pretty damn good.) *Back on topic*

Needless to say if you are on VM, get the Evo. If you have the option to move to a different carrier (a la, T-Mobile) get the Galaxy Nexus.

if you want a Very Good phone that is on the Virgin Mobile Network i would suggest the HTC One V.One,because it's "NEW" and two it could possibly get Jellybean.Since there are rumor's suggesting that the HTC One line would get Jellybean.

To add one more point in favor of the Evo V, it appears that VM is not throttling the Evo V. Every Evo owner I know, when they go to Data Usage on the VM website, it does not give any usage number. Further, those that have used more than 2.5 GB of data are not reporting they are being throttled at all, on either 3G or 4G.

In my case, I had an Evo V for three weeks and saw the same (though I didn't use enough data to be throttled). When I returned my Evo and temporarily switched back to my Optimus V, I started getting data usage on my account, but only the usage I had done on my OV -- despite being three weeks into my plan it didn't show any data usage from when I had the Evo.

Now VM could change this tomorrow. And at some point I'm sure that usage will be tracked and 3G throttled, even though 4G usage is not likely to be throttled. But at this point it appears the Evo V users are not having their data usage tracked at all.

Just because they're not reporting any data usage does not have anything to do with having an Evo V, I think it is because there is a problem with their reporting system right now.

A year ago maybe, I suffered through underpowered Androids when the Intercept was the only Android available on prepay. Nowadays the phone is ridiculously slow for the money. I mean they're still selling Intercepts for petes sake. And the Triumph has an exceptionally strong dev community, doesn't mean that I would recommend it to anyone that I cared about. ;-)
As far as having the whole package, I definitely think that the Evo V with VM $35 plan still stacks up nicely against the Nexus.

Just because they're not reporting any data usage does not have anything to do with having an Evo V, I think it is because there is a problem with their reporting system right now.
The evidence I've seen indicates it is just the Evo. Further, the evidence suggests that VM is not throttling the Evo (even on 3G). If you have evidence that is different, I'd like to see it.

I've got the optimus elite, and I love it. We've got root going, should have clockwork mod soon, and its a great phone. With root tweaks, my battery life is incredible. For example, it says that its been running for 5 and a half hours on battery. I've been listening to music, wifi web browsing, and playing a Nintendo 64 emulator and the battery charge is still at 67%. I highly recommend it. The GPS is super accurate and fast too, plus phone service is really snappy.

Being able to flash AOSP roms further boosts up the Evo V atop this list.

If you live in a wimax area go with the EVO V 4G and if you live on a non wimax area go with the One V, to same money . I live in a area where I get only 1 bar of wimax but speeds are good 9Mbps Good to play BF3 on my PS3.
