The Bottom Line Demanding Android fans won't like the HTC One V's slow performance but its premium design and low, no-contract price makes it a steal on Virgin Mobile. A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone. If you’re looking for a compact Android handset, the LG Optimus F3 will satisfy prepaid customers. As an on-contract phone, however, look to other free smartphones that are better. Sleek and fast, the HTC Desire is not only U.S. Cellular's best Android device but the carrier's best smartphone to date. Its laundry list of features require time and effort to truly master, but the Galaxy S4 is the top choice for anyone looking for a big-screen, do-everything smartphone.
