Update – Since I wrote this post a few months back, there have been some pretty big developments over at Straight Talk. Primarily, we’ve seen some new Android phones added to the phone queue, and there are some quite impressive ones. The first one (and the highest end phone available to date) is the LG Optimus Black. This phone has been called “slim and bright” by reviewers because it is extremely slim and has a very bright touchscreen. This phone is pairs with Straight Talk’s unlimited plan and it’s a pretty sweet match up. Get LG Optimus Black at StraightTalk.com
Samsung Proclaim and ZTE Merit
The other two new phones are the Samsung Galaxy Proclaim and the ZTE Merit
. Proclaim runs on the Verizon 3G network in some parts of the country which is good for people in those areas. The phone is priced affordably and also runs the Unlimited Straight Talk plan. ZTE Merit is the latest phone
that’s been made available to be used with the same plan. This phone is even a few bucks cheaper than Proclaim, but it still packs a pretty nice punch. It’s a small phone and has a nice touchscreen. It does a lot for the baby price. Get this phone at the official site.
Straight Talk has released its second Android phone, the LG Optimus Q. The first Straight Talk Android was released earlier this year and has been a popular phone for people looking for a prepaid Android phone (a phenomenon that is becoming a lot more common). Straight Talk’s LG Optimus Q joins the Samsung Galaxy Precedent, giving the popular prepaid provider two Android options.
The LG Optimus Q runs on Android 2.3, while the Samsung Precedent runs on 2.2, so it is slightly more updated (but not too much). One of the biggest differences is that the phone has a slide-out keyboard, which is a big difference for people who prefer to have a full touchscreen phone. The Optimus Q has a touch screen, but for messaging, the pull out keypad is what you’re going to want to use. The Precedent has a 3.2 inch touchscreen (like the “Q”), the Q is also blessed with a slightly better camera (3 mps vs 2 mp).
Both phones run on the Straight Talk Unlimited plan, which costs $45 per month for unlimited talk, text, and web. It’s a solid plan and one that works very well with these two data-hungry Android devices. These phones are both currently available at good prices with no contracts since they run on prepaid plans. You can see more details for both of these phones at the official website by following the link below. You can also read a review on this site of the Samsung Precedent. The Samsung Precedent costs $129 for the phone and it runs on the $45 unlimited plan just like all of the Androids on Straight Talk. Tracfone owns ST and also its sister company, Net10, which also has some of the same smartphones. They also have a $50 unlimited plan, but it’s a little more expensive than the ST one.
