Samsung Galaxy S8
Whether you’re on a top-end postpaid plan or a super-cheap prepaid plan, you can have the same great phone experience with the Galaxy S8 or larger Galaxy S8+. You’ve surely heard about the Galaxy S8 by now, with its sleek and slim body, big bright display and top-notch internal specs. It has one of the best cameras available, and all of Samsung’s core features like waterproofing and wireless charging.
The Galaxy S8 can do just about anything you’d want right out of the box, which is exactly what most people are looking for. Just be willing to pay for it — the Galaxy S8 is $659 at Straight Talk, while the larger Galaxy S8+ is $759.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Sky Pro
It isn’t the sexy high-end Galaxy S8, but the Galaxy J series has always managed to bring a little bit of that Galaxy flair to a super-low price point. The Galaxy J7 Sky Pro is just a Straight Talk specific model of the more general Galaxy J7, and it is going to get the job done without breaking the bank.
You get a 5.5-inch HD display, an 8MP camera, 16GB of storage and a body that has the looks of many other Samsung phones at a fraction of the cost. A 3300mAh battery inside is actually bigger than the Galaxy S8, meaning it should offer great battery life considering its lower resolution display.
Bring your own device
Straight Talk may not offer a phone that fits your budget or feature desires, and if that’s the case you can consider bringing a phone to the carrier instead. Before ou do, you’ll have to confirm whether your device is compatible with Straight Talk — most GSM/LTE phones are compatible.
