LG Optimus L90
In an attempt to follow in the successful footsteps of the Moto G, LG has a new smartphone called the L90. This smartphone is available from both T-Mobile and regional carriers like MetroPCS, and is a well-rounded device for the $179 price tag.
The screen is slightly larger than the Moto G coming in at 4.7-inches, but isn't quite as big as the Nexus 5 or the OnePlus. Sadly it isn't HD either and will only be 540 x 960 in resolution, so a few others may be a better visual experience. Screen aside, the $179 LG L90 delivers a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and a micro-SD for expansion, and a quality 5 megapixel camera.
The LG Optimus L90 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, has a large 2,540 mAh battery, and is probably your second best $200-range device on the list.
