Best Cellphones and Plans for Kids!

Best Cellphones and Plans for Kids!

Cellphones have become a must-have device for young people, and in today’s world, every preteen and teenager needs to have a reliable one. As parents, it is our responsibility to select the right cell phone and plan that best fits our kids’ needs – one that offers reliable coverage, a manageable cost, and appropriate features.

Factors to consider when shopping for a phone and phone plan for your child

When shopping for the right phone and plan for a child, one of the most important factors to consider is reliable coverage. If the phone doesn’t have good service, then it won’t be very useful, no matter how good it looks or how many great features it has. When shopping for a phone carrier, look for one that offers coverage that is reliable and consistent.

Another factor to consider when selecting a phone for a child is the cost. Plans for younger users are available from many cell phone companies, and it is important to do some research to find one that is affordable. Many of these plans come with discounted support and features that may be beneficial for a younger user.

In addition to coverage and cost, when shopping for the right phone for your child you need to consider its features. All phones today offer a selection of features, and it is important to select those that are age-appropriate and beneficial for your child. Some of these features include internet access, parental controls, and apps that can be used to further their learning. Other features that are important to pay attention to are long battery life, good audio quality, and durable construction.

Best phones for kids according to ZDNET

ZDNET is an independent research company that tests a variety of devices, including cell phones, and publishes its findings to help consumers make informed purchasing decisions. For 2023, ZDNET has stated that the following are the best cell phones for kids:

Best overall phone for kids: Apple iPhone SE (3rd generation)

Best starter phone for kids: Moto G Pure

Best kids’ phone for Samsung families: Samsung Galaxy A32 5G

Best secure phone for kids: Google Pixel 6A 5G

The cost of the phones listed here ranges from $429 (Apple iPhone SE) to $110 (Moto G Pure), and each offers a variety of features. One of the most important things to think about as you look into a cellphone for your child is how old they are. If they’re very young and likely to lose the phone, you might not want to plunk down $400 for one. But if they’re a bit older, are more mature, and if this isn’t their first phone (that tends to make a difference), the expense could very well be worth it. 

Best cell phone plans for kids

The easiest and most cost-effective cell phone plan for your child is simply to add a line to your current plan. This will get you the best deal on the purchase of a new phone from your wireless provider. It will also get you the best deal even if you don’t buy the phone from your provider. At PureTalk, we off mix and match plans families swear by. Each member of the family gets exactly what they want and need, and nothing they don’t. This means you’re not paying for anything extra. And that means you’re getting your money’s worth.

If you’re already with PureTalk, adding a line to accommodate your child and his or her new cell phone is fast and easy! And if you’re not, switching is a snap.
