The Bottom Line The LG Thrive is a decent entry-level Android smartphone for the prepaid crowd, but its limited data plan encourages us to look elsewhere. The LG Phoenix is a very affordable option for those seeking an entry-level Android smartphone on AT&T Wireless. The Samsung Galaxy Appeal delivers basic Android 2.3 functionality with a slide-out keyboard and wallet-friendly price, but there are performance and design trade-offs. The Motorola Bravo is a midrange Android smartphone with solid multimedia features. If you can get past its steep price, the massive-screened Motorola Droid Maxx is currently Verizon’s best Android smartphone.
