Best LTE smartphones under $300 (off-contract)

Best LTE smartphones under $300 (off-contract)
Having an LTE-capable smartphone isn’t a luxury anymore, as it used to be a few years back. In fact, you can now buy quite many handsets that offer LTE speeds for less than $300 (unlocked), and some of them are really good devices - although not all are from the latest generation.

Of course, LTE is now a standard feature on all high-end smartphones, and, in the near future, it will likely become a standard for mid-end handsets as well. Until then, though, if you're in search of the best LTE smartphone that doesn't cost more than $300 off-contract, you still have to consider some devices that have been around for a while. 

We made a list of the best sub-$300 LTE smartphones that are available now, and you can see it below. If you feel like we should've added other handsets, let us know in the comments.
