T-Mobile puts HTC 10, Samsung Galaxy J7, and LG K10 up for grabs

By Adrian Diaconescu May 18, 2016, 11:13 am

Right on schedule, America’s leading “Uncarrier” has earlier today picked up three new Android phones, ranging in price from $165 to $680, and obviously, covering all the hardware bases with low to mid to high-end specifications.

Of course, by “right on schedule” we mean recently unveiled and leaked timelines, as at least two of these “new” handhelds are a little late to the T-Mobile availability party after earlier debuts on rival networks.

But hey, it could be worse. Magenta isn’t following AT&T’s suit in refusing to sell the HTC 10 directly, providing GSM users stateside with a vital interest-free financing choice. Not everyone can afford to splash $700 on an unlocked model, and so paying T-Mo a measly $28.34 a month for two years feels like a breath of fresh air, even if the resulting full retail price exceeds fees charged by Verizon or Sprint.

Galaxy J7 T-Mobile

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy J7 launched on Boost and Virgin Mobile last month, spreading to T-Mobile today, and also hitting MetroPCS on May 27. Costs will differ, from $240 split in 24 monthly payments of $10 to $180 with prepaid plans respectively.

Both deals sound relatively fair when you consider the 5.5-incher is no powerhouse, but it does offer octa-core 1.5 GHz processing punch, 2GB RAM, HD screen resolution, Android 6.0 Marshmallow software, up to 21-hour battery life in continuous talk time, and 13 and 5MP photography prowess.

LG K10 T-Mobile

Finally, the entry-level LG K10 makes its all-time debut on a US carrier, at $165 or $6.88 a month, with MetroPCS availability following next Friday, and the price cut to $100. You may not be expecting much as a consequence, though the 5.3-incher has plenty going for it, including a 720p display, Marshmallow goodies, 1.5GB RAM, and 5MP selfie shooter.
