The Best T-Mobile Phones of 2016

...

Things have changed a lot for T-Mobile in the past few years. The once-anemic, fourth-largest US carrier has become the muscular, third-largest "uncarrier," with a fast nationwide LTE network and a slew of unique bonuses like unlimited video streaming, unlimited music streaming, and free Wendy's Frosties every Tuesday. It recently took home second place in our testing for the Fastest Mobile Networks.

The carrier also has a great selection of phones, thanks to its use of globally compatible GSM technology. As it's now entirely no-contract, so you can buy phones for their full, up-front price, or you can pay for them on a monthly installment plan. (If you're on the installment plan, you have to pay off the remainder of your phone if you want to quit T-Mobile's service.) Looking for the best phones on T-Mobile, we mixed locked and unlocked devices freely.

T-Mobile still appeals to cost-cutters, and we wanted to make sure to include some very low-cost devices in this list. If price is your overriding concern, take a look at the Blu Life One X and the ZTE Obsidian, which both provide good performance at an affordable price. The carrier's offerings scale all the way up the line, including the latest iPhones and flagship Android phones.
