Sprint is one of the largest wireless network providers in the United States, serving more than 54 million subscribers. As you’d expect, it features quite the handset selection, including models with 5G support. But what about its prepaid brand, Tello?
Tello, as is the case with other MVNOs, has its own rate plans, customer service, and phone selection. Here, we’ll dig into the devices offered at Tello.
We’ve gathered up a handful of the best phones you can purchase at Tello today. Although we do select one as the best overall (Editors’ Choice), the list below offers phones that work for a variety of user types.
For what it’s worth, the handset selection at Tello is really limited light. Moreover, it’s fully comprised of refurbished models. We always suggest buying an unlocked phone for use with a carrier.
Google Pixel 4
Maybe one of the more controversial “best” phones we’ve seen in some time, the Pixel 4 is the newest from Google. And while it’s not the most powerful and robust device on the market, it does have its share of cool features.
First, of course, is the really great camera experience; it gets better with each generation. Also worth your attention is the baked-in Google Assistant and Android 10 experience.
The display is really awesome, too, and we’re big fans of the design change. If you can swing it, buy the larger storage option because 64GB is a little light in 2020. Go for the Pixel 4 XL and get a bigger display and higher capacity battery.
Samsung Galaxy A51
The Samsung Galaxy A51 gives users all of the great features found in the Galaxy S line and leaves out the unnecessary bleeding-edge stuff. It ticks the right boxes and leaves money in your wallet.
The phone comes with a big 6.5-inche Super AMOLED screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and packs a 48-MP (wide), 12-MP (ultrawide), 5-MP (wide) macro, and 5-MP depth sensor. Inside is a generous 6GB RAM with 128GB storage capacity for videos, music files, images, and documents.
Samsung Galaxy S8
It may be a few years old but that doesn’t mean it won’t handle your tasks. There’s plenty in here that can manage your tasks, play your games, and keep track of your social media.
Features include a 5.8-inch display, 12-megapixel camera, and 3,000mAh battery. An octa-core processor is paired with 4GB RAM while storage is listed at 64GB. Need more room for files? Throw in a microSD expansion card slot for external media.
