The Bottom Line As an entry-level prepaid handset, the AT&T Avail is reliable, reasonably priced, and easy to use. 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. Nokia's Lumia 521 is one of the best bargain smartphones on any platform, but skip it if LTE is of paramount concern. With its reasonable $100 price tag, AT&T's Galaxy Express' solid performance and respectable specs are a good deal -- but pass it up if you want a more powerful camera.
