The Bottom Line While we're not huge fans of the design, the RIM BlackBerry Curve 8530 is a good choice for first-time smartphone buyers and offers more than its GSM counterpart. MetroPCS' LG Motion 4G is worth it for price-conscious customers who want a contract-free 4G LTE-enabled device, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a swift processor. The BlackBerry Curve 9310 is still the same ho-hum handset you can expect from RIM, but for a no-contract BlackBerry, it's reliable and makes texting a breeze. Though it's not quite enough to draw committed iPhone or Android owners, the BlackBerry Z10's modern design and features give BlackBerry fans what they've hungered for.
