Smartphones for people who value their commitment-free lifestyle.
Just because they aren't interested in signing a two-year contract with a major carrier doesn't mean this class of people wants to skimp out on their device. Prepaid carriers are offering top-tier devices now, including some of the best from Apple and Samsung. As long as you don't mind paying a bit more up front for the device, these people will save money thanks to the lower monthly costs that accompany prepaid services. (Do the math over two years; trust us.) These devices are capable smartphones that offer modern operating systems, decent cameras, and good all-around performance.
