The T-Mobile Prism could've been a contender—if it was still the beginning of 2011, that is. Aside from a mediocre camera, there isn't anything terribly wrong with the Prism. It has pretty good call quality and a nice design that feels comfortable to hold. But its specs are better suited to an entry-level smartphone released well over a year ago. You can do much better than the Prism now, for not a lot more money. quote

If you're looking for your first 3G smartphone, the T-Mobile Prism will deliver basic calling, texting, and Web-browsing requirements all for $20. Just don't expect blazing speeds or great photos.

What the Prism lacks in looks and extravagant software powers, it makes up for with solid performance in the core features. The one real exception is the camera. In short, the Prism's camera stinks. If that's a vital feature for you, look elsewhere.

While power users and gamers will want to stay far, far away from the T-Mobile Prism, it's also a decent handset for teenagers to keep in touch with parents and friends – or even for less-discriminating users on a budget.
