Samsung Galaxy S7
Samsung really delivered with its flagship device for 2016 — the Galaxy S7. They brought back must-have features like expandable memory via microSD and a bigger battery, while improving on the sleek, one-piece design from the Galaxy S6, making the whole thing water and dust-resistant. It's a beautiful phone, featuring a stunning Quad HD Super AMOLED display, protected by Gorilla Glass on the front and back. The Galaxy S7 takes amazing photos, even in low-light conditions, and includes must-have features like Android Pay and wireless charging via NFC. Oh, and it's also VR-ready with the Samsung Gear VR.

Samsung Galaxy S6
If the Galaxy S7 is a bit out of your price range, you should be good to go with the Galaxy S6. Sure, it's missing the option for expandable memory and it isn't water or dust-resistant like its successor, but you still end up with a well-built phone with an amazing camera. Given this was Samsung's flagship in 2015, you also get great features, such as wireless charging capabilities and a one-touch fingerprint sensor. Straight Talk also throws in a free case, so you can keep your shiny, new phone protected.

If price is your top priority when considering your next phone, the Moto E provides the best bang for your buck via Straight Talk. This budget phone from Motorola features a fairly stock Android interface running on Lollipop (5.0.1) and includes a great battery, making it a decent option considering the price. The Moto E only comes with 4GB of internal memory, but does feature expandable memory up to 32GB via microSD.

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
Yes, we're aware which site this is. But considering the limited options provided by Straight Talk, it would be foolish not to include the latest and greatest devices from Apple. You really can't go wrong with the latest and greatest from Apple. Whether you're upgrading from an older iOS device or thinking about buying an iPhone for the first time, both the iPhone 6s and the larger 6s Plus are available through Straight Talk. Shoot and share 4K video with Apple's best camera yet, and take advantage of great features like 3D Touch, Touch ID and the hands-free functionality Siri.

Bring your own device
If you don't have the money to afford the Galaxy S7 or iPhone 6s, and also don't want to settle for the Moto E or other entry-level phones, you also have the option of bringing your own device to Straight Talk. But first you'll have to confirm whether your device is compatible with Straight Talk. So, depending on which devices you already own, that might actually end up being your best bet.
