    Hey guys,

    I am trying to buy a replacement phone for a family member who just cracked their screen.

    I am looking at the Moto G 2013 LTE edition for $200

    Is there any better off-contract option that can be had in the U.S. on the T-mobile network? any decent Chinese handsets for that much?

    Thanks?

    I think the first question you need to answer is how important Wi-Fi calling is. As far as I know, it will only work with an iPhone or android/windows phone sold by T-Mobile. That means the moto g won't work with it. I have the lg l90 and I hate it. Stay away.

    The upcoming lumia 640 looks good if windows is an option.

    Moto E (2015)? 3G is just $120 while 4G LTE is $150. Not sure what LTE bands T-Mobile uses but here are the supported bands:

    The new Moto E undercuts that by $50 and works on T-Mobile LTE.
