If you're loyal to Boost Mobile's service and looking for a sub-$100 smartphone, there are worse phones than the LG Realm. Its decent 5-megapixel rear camera and helpful indicator light around the home button speak well of it. As long as you understand that you'll get slow 3G speeds, buying the Realm wouldn't be the biggest mistake of your cellular life.

Equally, it wouldn't be your crowning moment either. Pony up the $20 more ($100) and get the Motorola Moto G instead. The original, 2013 Moto G edition also tops out at 3G speeds, but has the better screen and processor. It's also blessed with more storage space and a higher-megapixel front-facing camera.

Offers decent performance for a rock-bottom price

from PC Magazine

The LG Realm is certainly not the best phone on Boost, but for $80, it's hard to complain too much. If you want a smartphone primarily for making calls, with the occasional apps and some Web browsing thrown in, the Realm will serve you well. But if you're willing to spend more, there are better options available.
