Alcatel Tru is the newest super-cheap Android phone on MetroPCS
If you're in need of an extremely cheap Android smartphone, and don't mind buying it from MetroPCS, you should check out the Alcatel Tru. 

Available starting today from MetroPCS, this new Alcatel device costs only $29 off contract (after rebates), and should do a decent job at being a basic LTE-enabled smartphone.

The Alcatel Tru sports a 5-inch screen with 480 x 854 pixels, thus offering one of the least sharp displays currently on the market. The phone is powered by a not-so-powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 CPU clocked at 1.1 GHz, further offering 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2000 mAh battery for "all day use." There's a 2 MP camera on the front of the handset, and a 5 MP one on the back - with LED flash and "Polaroid filters" (we haven't tried these filters, so we can't say if they actually do anything to improve image quality).

The new Alcatel smartphone features a "soft noir faux leather back", and unfortunately runs Android Lollipop (this likely means that the device won't be updated to Nougat, and not even to Marshmallow).
