We’ve listed some of the best Sprint phones to give a heads up regarding your potential options if you are inclined towards the carrier. The network operator’s stores seem to be flooded with Android handsets, but you do have a few other alternatives if you do not wish to go the Google way. So give our list a once-over and decide which one of these devices you’d pick up.
1 – Apple iPhone 4S:
The most amazing iPhone yet, the 4S is available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants. The 3G handset is powered by a dual core A5 chipset and runs iOS 5.
Siri, one of its exclusive highlights, has the ability to understand and respond to natural conversation almost instantly. This beast is also equipped with an 8MP camera and a front-mounted webcam in addition to a 3.5-inch multi-touch Retina display.
Price: $199.99 (16GB)
2 – Samsung Galaxy S3:
The Android ICS-based Samsung Galaxy S3 is, by all means, worthy of inclusion in our lineup. This handset ditches the quad core processor for a 4G LTE-enabled dual core chipset that can clock in at a maximum speed of 1.5GHz.
A 4.8-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen graces the front panel along with a 1.9MP camera, while an 8MP snapper sits on the rear side. It is currently available in 16GB and 32GB versions and lets you expand the memory by up to 64GB using a microSD card.
Price: $199.99 (16GB)
3 – HTC Evo 4G LTE:
Building on the success of the previously released Evo devices, the 4G LTE version should appeal to those of you looking for a decent Android mobile companion. Its internal operations are carried out under the supervision of a dual core chipset that ticks at 1.5GHz. And the intuitive interface of the Evo 4G LTE can be attributed to the Ice Cream Sandwich tweaked with the HTC Sense 4.0 UI.
It brings in a 4.7-inch Super LCD multi-touch display and an 8MP camera as well as a kickstand to prop the device up on a flat surface and enjoy movies or videos.
4 – Samsung Galaxy Nexus:
A successor to the likes of the Nexus One and the Nexus S, the Google device in question marked the debut of the Ice Cream Sandwich platform. This handset flaunts an eye-pleasing design and accommodates a 1080 x 720p touchscreen spanning 4.65 inches on its sleek form factor.
It is fueled by a 1.5GHz dual core processor and claims to cough up the juice for close to 7.5 hours on a single charge. As for the cameras, you get a 5MP primary snapper and a 1.3MP front-facing webcam.
5 – LG Optimus Elite:
Environment-conscious users will be glad to know that the carrier we’re talking about is doing its bit for the planet by introducing the eco-responsible LG Optimus Elite. This 3G-certified handset features on our compilation as it can deliver smooth performance through its stylish chassis constructed out of recycled plastic.
It binges on the Gingerbread OS, comes draped by a 3.5-inch touchscreen and is armed with a 5MP camera. The energy-efficient device should offer talk time of up to 7.3 hours.
6 – ZTE Fury:
If a budget-friendly handset complete with useful features headlines your wish list, then you’re on the right track. The ZTE Fury serves a slice of Gingerbread and projects visuals in 480 x 320p resolution through its 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen, powered by IPS technology.
A 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM make it capable of taking on multiple demanding tasks at once, and a 1500mAh battery powers the device for close to 8 hours between charges. It boasts of attributes like Family Locator and Mobile Controls, allowing parents to track their child’s handset usage.
7 – LG Viper 4G LTE:
As the name suggests, this contender on our array lets you enjoy 4G LTE network speeds for relatively fast internet access. The device runs the Gingerbread operating system and lets you multitask, thanks to its 1.2GHz dual core processor and 1GB RAM.
A 4-inch WVGA multi-touch display dominates the front panel of the handset, while a 5MP auto focus camera quietly rests on the flip side. You can even access the Google Play store and make use of Google Mobile services that come with this device.
8 – BlackBerry Curve 9350:
And if a business handset is what you wish to own, we suggest you have a look at the BlackBerry Curve 9350 which is compliant with the carrier’s 3G network speed. It is powered by BlackBerry 7 OS and comes loaded with most social features associated with RIM’s platform.
Sporting a full physical QWERTY keypad, the handset lets you capture still shots and videos through the 5MP camera with flash and provides talk time that lasts for about 5.5 hours owing to the 1040mAh battery.
These are just some of the best Sprint phones that you can consider when looking for a new mobile companion. But as is pretty evident from this list, those who prefer the Windows Phone OS over other operating systems may not want to go ahead and tie the knot with this service provider. And needless to say, all of the devices mentioned above require you to commit to a two-year contract as well as sign up for qualifying data plans. So are you willing to be associated with the carrier and all its friends?
