This article states all the different types of smartphones that are really good and cost very little. Also, they don't have a contract which is a plus to many people.
I choose this article because a few years ago my parents got me a no contract phone for emergencies. It was a normal sliding phone, not a high-tech smartphone so this is interesting to read about.
