    Asus Goes Even Cheaper With the ZenFone 2E

    We’re big fans of the ZenFone 2, Asus’ low-cost phone that doesn’t fall too short of a flagship. The ZenFone 2E doesn’t pretend to be anywhere near a flagship, but at an even lower price, it’s looking like another great value.

    Republic Wireless Will Pay Customers for Unused Cellular Data

    Since 2011, Republic Wireless has been one of the cheapest ways to get wireless service.

    6 Dirt Cheap Smartphones that are Actually Quite Good

    Cheap smartphones, no contract. Pick one, right? Unsubsidized, off-contract phones come at a high price—high enough to make the confines of a two-year contract preferable by comparison, which is really saying something.

    Republic Wireless Moto X Review

    We first reviewed Republic Wireless back in 2013. The company made waves by being the first company to offer a crazy affordable unlimited talk, text, data plan for just $19.99 a month.

    Republic Wireless Review – The $19 Unlimited Cell Phone Plan

    Republic Wireless is one of the latest no-contract cellular companies to pop up. But Republic Wireless is hardly your standard prepaid wireless company.
