Straight Talk Review
Fun fact: Straight Talk is actually a subsidiary of a Mexican phone company, América Móvil, which is the biggest phone company in the country of Mexico. They own and operate Tracfone, which is the parent company of Straight Talk and a few other prepaid phone services. Why so many brands? Well it has to do with the type of customer that the brands cater to. Some are for people who are looking for basic phone service, no frills. Others are looking for the high end “smart phones” that are all the rage nowadays. The great thing about them, is that they operate on all the cell phone networks in America, such as Tmobile, Verizon, Sprint and AT&T. This gives them the designation of Mobile Virtual Network Operator or MVNO. So the service quality is as good as the big phone carriers.

The market for pre-paid cell phones in America is highly competitive. But Straight Talk continually comes out on top of user satisfaction surveys. This is due in part to the fact that they allow you to use discount codes for refilling your cell phone minutes. This translates to hundreds of dollars of savings over the course of a year, if you use the phone regularly. They are also good if you are visiting America and need a cell phone, but don’t want to sign up with one of the big cell carriers. The codes are wide and change often, so there is always a good selection of what you need to save money.
Top 10 Straight Talk Wireless Phones
There are a lot of phones that can be used on their network. We surveyed 1,000 users and found the top 10 phones that people buy. Survey respondents reported that the main reason they chose the particular phone that they did was due to cost and affordability. The next reason they chose was reliability of the network that the phone operates on, with Verizon compatible phones being the #1 choice of Straight Talk users.
- iPhone 6s 16GB
This is the Mercedes Benz of cellular telephones. The cream of the crop. The best of the best. Or so our survey respondents said. Why buy an iPhone 6s from an MVNO prepaid wireless carrier? Simple: There are people out there who realize that signing up for a subsidized cell phone and a 2 year contract through Verizon, AT&T or Sprint actually wind up paying way more than they would had they outright purchased the phone. By purchasing it for full price, you do not have to enter into a contract and instead can take advantage of the relative low savings of the $45/mo. unlimited plan they offer.
- Samsung S336C
Again, for the #2 most popular phone, the question begs, “why?”. Well, we have to consider the fact that Straight Talk Wireless came about due to a partnership between Tracfone and Walmart. If we look at the general demographic that shops at Walmart, we can see just why this phone is so popular. For those who don’t want, nor need a smart phone with hundreds of features and functions, the clamshell Samsung S336C phone is the choice du jour. Meaning it does what it says and it says what it does and not much more. The type of person that buys this phone does not care about staying connected to Facebook or Twitter or sending and receiving emails. They only care about making and receiving phone calls. It will also be compatible with the $30 All-You-Need-Plan. It is also the most popular phone for people who are visiting America from foreign countries. Just buy it and use it.
- Moto E (Reconditioned)
As the numbers in this survey get lower, the popularity of the items goes higher. It may seem like we’re taking a step back with the Moto E, but this is the #3 most popular phone amongst Straight Talk users. Why? It is not 4G…it is only a 3G device. The reason is due to the relative cheap cost and the relative reliability of the photo. The Motorola line of cell phones has proven itself to be very popular and reliable over the years. For $39 you can get a great phone that is heads and tails superior to any of the other 3G phones on this list. It also comes with Android 4.4.
- Samsung Galaxy S5
As the years went by, Samsung improved heavily upon their Galaxy brand. The biggest features and the reason why this one is ranked higher than the S3 is due to the technological improvements of the phone as well as the increased processor speeds and available onboard memory. Not to mention the S3 can only accept up to a certain level of the Android operating system. So if you’re looking for the latest and greatest, the S5 is superior to the S3.
- Samsung Galaxy S III
The famous and very popular Samsung Galaxy S 3 rounds up the #5 spot. The Galaxy line of phones from Samsung have been extremely popular over the years. Starting with the S2 and working all the way up to the current S6 model. 4G LTE/WiFi comes standard along with the reliability and style that is synonymous with the Galaxy line of phones.
- Alcatel onetouch® PIXI CHARM LTE
So this phone is higher on the list than the rest for several reason. It includes a free $45/mo. unlimited plan. It’s cheaper than the Galaxy E5 and if you aren’t interested in all the bells and whistles that most Samsung devices come with, this is the phone for you. It features 4G LTE and WiFi capabilities.
- Samsung Galaxy E5™
We’re now getting into the more powerful and faster phones on our top 10 list. The Samsung Galaxy brand has been hugely successful over the past 10 years with multiple variations of them on the market. It will only work on the $45/mo. unlimited plan, so we are now entering into the demographic who use their device as their daily work horse. It is capable of 4G LTE speeds as well as WiFi. You can now access over 1 million apps on the Google Play store.
- LG Optimus Fuel™ Reconditioned
Another cheap phone offering that is popular with senior citizens and people who really don’t use their device on a regular basis. This phone is also popular with people who visit America from foreign countries. Pay $10 and you instantly have a phone that works. It is slightly more powerful than the previous two phones, yet it still runs on the 3G/WiFi networks.
- ZTE Whirl™ Reconditioned
Another phone that operates solely at 3G or WiFi speeds. The main difference between this phone and the LG Optimus is the color (black vs. white) and small style differences. The main user of this phone was someone in their late 50’s to early 70’s. They rarely use their phone and have no need for all the bells and whistles that come with some of the more expensive cell phones on the market.
- LG Optimus Dynamic White (Reconditioned)
This phone was a strong contender and the main reason people chose it was due to a blowout sale that occurred in 2015. It makes the bottom of our list due to the fact that it’s free. As far as power and reliability, it leaves somethings to be desired. The phone does not operate on the 4GLTE network, as it’s only capable of 3g/Wifi speeds. We found that the main user of this phone was someone in their 60’s and 70’s who lives in a rural area in America that does not have a reliable 4G LTE network.
