The Bottom Line The Samsung Dart is a decent entry-level phone for T-Mobile, but there are better options out there. The T-Mobile Concord's midrange specs won't turn any heads, but it's a reliable, stylish, and inexpensive handset that doesn't require a contract. Get the T-Mobile Prism 2 if you want an inexpensive and dependable 3G phone, but skip it if you prioritize speedy performance. Nokia's Lumia 521 is one of the best bargain smartphones on any platform, but skip it if LTE is of paramount concern. Even if you're on a tight budget, you should skip Alcatel's One Touch Fierce in favor of a better prepaid phone.
