What Are the Best Phones You Can Get With Straight Talk?


Straight Talk is known to be a carrier that offers budget phone plans, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it only works with budget phones.


You’ll be surprised to find that several top-shelf phones not only work with Straight Talk but can also be purchased through plans with the carrier.

So, what are the best Straight Talk phones you can buy? Let’s find out below.


The Best Straight Talk Phones

We’re going to start by diving straight into the best phones that Straight Talk has to offer. Once we’ve rounded out some of the best options, the end of the article will explain how to get the phones in your hands, including in-person and online shopping options.

The Moto G Stylus 5G

The Motorola Moto G series aren’t bank-breakers, but they’re capable units and a lot more than most people probably expect from Straight Talk phones. Through Straight Talk, you can get the Moto G with or without the stylus and with or without 5G.

The Moto G features a 6.8-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chip, and can manage just over 14 hours of battery life on one charge. The stylus is an added feature for people who like to do things like take notes, draw, or play games. Remember that your phone can handle 5G whether or not your area has 5G service yet.

The Samsung Galaxy Series

Two of Samsung’s high-end phones, the Galaxy S21 FE 5G and the Galaxy A13, are both available through Straight Talk. The S21 has a 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, a 10MP front camera, and two 12MP rear cameras, and a Qualcomm 888 chip, all powered on a 26-hour battery.

The Galaxy A13, on the other hand, has a 6.6-inch LCD screen and four cameras, including an ultra-wide camera and a depth camera. This one has a battery life of up to 54 hours.

The Apple iPhone and iPhone SE series

If you closely follow mobile phones, you may have caught on that most of these devices are one generation behind. They’re still great phones (in some cases, they might be better than the newest version in the series), but they aren’t the latest hardware.

Unless you want an iPhone—that’s right, the iPhone 14 and iPhone SE 3 are both available as Straight Talk phones.

The iPhone 14 houses a 6.1-inch OLED display, dual 12MP cameras, and an A15 Bionic chip that helps it deliver “all-day” battery life. The iPhone SE 3 features a 4.7-inch LCD screen and a 12MP main camera while packing the same efficient A15 Bionic chip.

Straight Talk also has previous generations of the iPhone and iPhone SE series, so you can save some money by going with an older model. All of the models covered in this article can also be paid in monthly installments with your bill.

Straight Talk phones at Walmart

You’ve probably seen Straight Talk phones at Walmart. However, that’s not the entire selection. Plus, the selection available can vary by location. You can also ask an associate at your local Walmart about what additional Straight Talk phones they may carry or be able to order for you.

If you’re worried about having a phone shipped to your house or post office box, you can also shop Straight Talk phones at Walmart’s website and have the device shipped to your store for pickup. To find Straight Talk phones at Walmart’s website, click the Departments button, select Electronics, and, under Cell Phones, select Straight Talk.

Buying Straight Talk Phones Online

For this article, we looked at the selection on Straight Talk’s website. If you want to switch to Straight Talk and bring the phone that you already have, there’s a brief questionnaire to check if your device is compatible with Straight Talk.

To find Straight Talk phones from their websites, select PHONES & DEVICES from the banner menu. Under PHONES, you’ll likely be interested in the top three options because that’s where you’ll find the iPhones and Android phones. Below that, you can find basic phones, home phones, and clearance deals, which are not destinations for high-end hardware.

Finding phones by brand on Straight Talk's website

Whatever category you choose, you can use the ALL FILTERS option near the top of your page to refine your search. Filters include whether or not the phone supports 5G, the brand of the phone, the price, and customer reviews.

Straight Talk Phones Aren’t Walmart Phones

If you counted out Straight Talk phones, you’re selling them short. Sure, if you insist on phones by Google or HTC, you’ll have a hard time.

However, most smartphone users can find what they need with this carrier—including 5G phones and the newest Apple iPhones.
