So, you’ve been considering switching to an MVNO (Mobile virtual network operator) for your wireless services, or maybe just need a second phone with a cheap plan? Well, Boost Mobile is a good choice. Boost uses T-Mobile’s network, so make sure there’s adequate coverage where you live, even though Boost promises 99% nationwide coverage.
Boost Mobile’s lineup of phones is quite diverse. From a $29 flip phone all the way to the $1,000 iPhone 11 Pro Max. With 29 devices on the list, the choice sounds plentiful. However, there are quite a few phones on there that should be straight-up ignored. But instead of listing those, we’ll give you the list of the best Boost Mobile phones you can get, depending on what you’re looking for.
Best Boost Mobile phones, a summarized list:
If you’re not set on Boost Mobile, you can also check our other MVNO selections:

So, if you’re in the Apple ecosystem and aren’t cash-restrained, the iPhone 11 is a great choice for your Boost phone.
Best overall value Android phone at Boost Mobile
Samsung Galaxy S10
Best 5G phone at Boost Mobile
Samsung Galaxy S20 5G
One of Samsung’s 2020 flagships is on our recommended list as well, but with one condition. Its biggest advantage, besides the faster chip and some other minor goodies, is the support for 5G. Boost Mobile uses T-Mobile’s network which has coverage for the mid-band 5G, which gives you faster speed without the limitations of mmWave.
Best budget iPhone at Boost Mobile
Apple iPhone SE 2020
Of course, there are some drawbacks that come with the reused design, such as the single camera and the small battery. But if you’re only looking to get this as a secondary phone or one for your kid or parent, then it will serve them just fine as is.
Best budget Android phone at Boost Mobile
Motorola Moto G Fast
When we talk about budget phones, a Moto G phone will inevitably show up. The line has been a reliable choice for value seekers for many years. The Moto G Fast is a worthy member of the Moto G family and as the name suggests offers a small bump in performance. Don’t expect anything that rivals high-end phones, though, after all, the Moto G Fast cost a few times less than most flagships.
The specs are humble but still good for the price. The 720p display coupled with the 4,000mAh battery make for great battery life and that’s quite important, especially if you’re looking for a backup device. The “almost stock” Android software Motorola puts on its Moto devices is another benefit when it comes to budget models. Overall, if you’re looking for a cheap Android phone on Boost Mobile, this is the one.
Best budget Samsung phone at Boost Mobile
Samsung Galaxy A21
People often have their brand preferences and while some are team Apple all the way, others prefer to stick to Samsung. And if you must have a Samsung phone, but can’t afford any of the pricier models, then the Galaxy A21 is the one to go for. It has a quad-camera setup but realistically, the main camera and the ultra-wide one are the ones you’ll be using.
Unfortunately, the biggest advantage of cheap Samsung phones, the OLED displays, isn’t on this model. Additionally, Samsung’s One UI can be a bit heavy and phones with slower chips can feel laggy, especially after some time. Still, if the brand is the deciding factor, then get the Galaxy A21 from Boost Mobile.
Best stylus phone at Boost Mobile
LG Stylo 6
Pen aside, the Stylo 6 is a somewhat unremarkable device. In 2020 it looks a bit dated with that notch in the middle and the specs are nothing to be impressed by. But it’s quite cheap as well, so it’s not like you’re expecting much from it, to begin with. If you’re using an app for work or a hobby that would benefit from the use of a stylus, it will do the job just fine.
