T-mobile pre-paid 4G LTE budget phone.

I need an Android phone for occasional GPS and mobile hotspot and music functionality. It seldom ever gets used as a phone

I once had an htc MyTouch 4G which was a great phone.

Unfortunately, I needed LTE speed, so I picked up an LG Optimus F6. It does get LTE speed and works acceptably as a hotspot, but it has been the slowest responsive phone I have ever owned and could not have custom firmware loaded onto it.

(I suspect the former is caused by the bloatware that could not be removed as the phones hardware specs seemed fine).

The F6 just stopped charging and I can't see putting time or effort into a phone I really do not care for.

So..


Help me find:

1. A budget Android phone
2. That can be used on the T-Mobile prepaid 4G LTE network
3. That has wifi and thus mobile hotspot functionality
4. That can be rooted and have custom firmware installed that makes it "snappy"
5. That is a slickdeal price-wise.

A quick search of Hot Deals didn't reveal anything, so suggestions for models that tend to go on sale would be helpful to keep my eyes open for,

Thanks in advance.
