The Bottom Line If you like a real keyboard on a no-contract, reasonably priced handset, the LG Optimus Slider is a good contender. Just remember its low specs and boxy build. Though you won't get blazing data or processing speeds on the Kyocera Event, as an affordable smartphone it's an excellent choice. If you're in need of a low-cost prepaid phone, the Awe will satisfy, but if you want a quick-moving phone, move on. The LG Optimus V is a great entry-level Android smartphone if you want to go the prepaid route. A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
