Boost Mobile is one of the best MVNO carriers that focus on value for the dollar. Formerly part of the Sprint network, new customers are moving over to T-Mobile’s far more robust network. The plans are super affordable, which is why Boost is so attractive. We’ve got our roundup of the best Boost Mobile phones you can buy to use on Boost’s network including the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, our top choice.
Best Overall: Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
At the end of 2020, Samsung released its best value phone of the year. There were better Samsung phones and cheaper Samsung phones, but the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE combined the best features for the best price. It became a new flagship killer on its own. Samsung scaled back a little on this phone, but in entirely forgivable places.
You’ve still got a gorgeous 6.5-inch, 120 Hz display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. You’ve got a three-camera setup with ultrawide, primary, and telephoto sensors. That includes “Space Zoom” of up to 30x hybrid zoom. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE was one of the best phones released last year. It got rave reviews from basically anyone who looked at it. You would be hard-pressed to find something wrong to say about it.

All the best compromises
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE is the best phone you can buy on Boost mobile. It is the best combination of features and prices you can find on any carrier.
Best Battery: Moto G Power
If you’re using Boost Mobile for your phone service, chances are you’re trying to save money. Boost does an excellent job of helping you save some cash on your monthly wireless bill, and that makes the Moto G Power a perfect fit as the best overall phone for the network.
Moto G phones have always been about giving you a quality experience at a reasonable price, and that’s exactly what the G Power does. Despite a super low price tag, the Moto G Power manages to deliver a tremendous Full HD+ display with slim bezels, reliable performance for most tasks, and a trio of cameras that are perfectly adequate for Twitter and Instagram. You even get a 3.5mm headphone jack, expandable storage, and a water-repellent coating.
All of that’s great, but what makes the Moto G Power up a notch is its battery life. With a 5,000 mAh capacity, you can get between two and three days of use on a single charge. We aren’t as psyched about the limited update support or the lack of NFC for Google Pay, but all-in-all, this is an excellent device for using the Boost service.
