The Bottom Line Though the Coolpad Quattro 4G is affordable and has excellent call quality, consider other inexpensive MetroPCS 4G LTE phones instead, like the LG Motion 4G. Samsung's middle-of-the-road Galaxy Attain 4G has a nice price and attractive design for MetroPCS customers; but those seeking true LTE speeds should choose a different carrier. There are plenty of trade-offs for those considering the Huawei Activa 4G, but if LTE is your priority, it'll get you there without busting the bank. Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X.
