A Boost Mobile phone can be a great deal when you think about it. Sure, when you usually start to think about cellular phone service you automatically think about the Big 4 smartphone carriers:
But there are other carriers to think about where you might even get a better deal on your smartphone plan and boost offers a few prepaid or pay as you go phone plans to consider:
Best Boost Mobile Smartphone Plans
Boost Mobile Plans are broken down to two different plans with multiple pricing options: The first is their monthly select plans that offer you service for a monthly fee.
Daily Boost Mobile Plans
Then there’s daily pay as you go plans from Boost where you get to pay by the day – this is great for callers who only need a phone once in a while. The price for the Boost Mobile Daily Plan is 2 dollars/day for feature phones and 3 dollars a day for smartphones – both plans offer unlimited talk, text and data.
Montly Boost Mobile Plans
When it comes to monthly plans their are 3 different pricing tiers to choose from:
- $40/month for unlimited talk and text with 500mb of data.
- $50/month for unlimited talk and text with 2.5GB of data
*$60/month for unlimited talk and text with 5GB of data
The Best Boost Mobile Phones
Now, we get to the phones: First you have to decide whether you want an Apple iPhone vs an Android Phone
Or if you just want a basic phone there’s that option to select too, but first let’s look at the best smartphones for Boost Mobile:
Best Apple iPhone for Boost Mobile
The Apple iPhone 5sis the best Apple iPhone for Boost Mobile. We’re still a few months away from an iPhone 6 release date and it’s uncertain if Boost Mobile will carry the Apple iPhone 6 at all 1 so for the time being, there’s the Apple iPhone 5s at the top of the heap for the best Apple Phone for Boost Mobile.
The Apple iPhone 5s features a fast A7 processor, touch ID, 8 megapixel camera and iOS7 with ultrafast wireless LTE
Best Android Phone for Boost Mobile
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the best phone currently for the Boost Mobile network. It has a much bigger screen than the Apple iPhone 5s, at 5.1 inches vs the 4 inch display on the Apple iPhone, runs Android 4.4.2 out of the box and offers a higher resolution camera at 13 megapixels.
There are other Android phones for Boost mobile too such as:
*Motorola Moto G
*Samsung Galaxy S3
*Kyocera Hydro Edge
These 3 phones are much cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S5 with contract free pricing starting at $49.99 and ranging to $299.99. This is much better pricing than the $599.99 the Samsung Galaxy S5 commands, but the Samsung Galaxy S5 is a much faster, feature rich phone than the other phone choices for boost as most others are mid tier phones vs flagship phones like the S5 and iPhone.
If you want to stay away from expensive contracts that tie you into a monthly payment you can’t get out of, buying a top tier phone like the Samsung or Apple can cost a lot out of pocket, but over time thanks to the cheaper monthly costs you can recoup some savings and after two years, even though you bought your phone outright at almost $600.00 at the end of the 2 years with Boost you would have saved considerably compared to the fees the major carriers charge for smartphone plans.
