Low Cost Phone For Chromecast

jeremykrzykwa 9 10 October 30, 2015 at 10:44 AM
I have had a chromecast for the last year and use it to watch all of my TV. However, I use my main phone for it and it tends to eat up more battery than I would like. I have been thinking that I want to buy a phone or tablet even that would be used strictly for Chromecasting purposes, nothing else. Any ideas of a decent quality low cost phone? I appreciate any response or pointers in the right direction.

Thanks

Zte zmax. Search in slickdeal for $45. Some price matching procedure required.
Super long lasting battery life.
International lte bands.

I use it both as phone and it also rendered my tablet to becoming a white elephant.

It is not fast. Screen is not full HD.
Web browser movies have dedicated chromecast icon.

Just a suggestion Smilie

The LG Optimus Exceed 2 at $15 isn't bad...it was even better when it was $10 a few weeks ago...1.8GB free storage to install apps on...it's really snappy and works well with the various Chromecast apps like Youtube, Pandora, Showbox, TV Portal and Movie HD...you cast the video to the chromecast so it doesn't use any processing power on the phone anyway.
