If you’re on Verizon Wireless and due for an upgrade then you’re certainly spoiled for choice. In addition to carrying some of the best smartphones Motorola has to offer, alongside the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 5, there’s definitely a smartphone out there for you that’s better than your current device. So let’s take a look.
Best Verizon phone: Samsung Galaxy Nexus, HTC Rezound, iPhone 4S, Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX
Starting off with an obvious favorite, Verizon offers the iPhone 4S. An excellent camera, huge selection of high quality apps and one of the most simplest smartphones to use on the market, there’s no question as to why it’s so popular.
Moving on to Androids, you will find a huge selection. We’ve got the Samsung Galaxy Nexus which is the only pure Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone as well being the only one guaranteed to get the Android 5.0 Jellybean update. On the negative, it uses a Pentile screen and hs been known to showcase signal issues.
If you’re a fan of HTC, the HTC Rezound is another powerful device. However unlike the other Android smartphones on the list, it is a bit on the bulky side.
From Motorola, we have the RAZR MAXX which packs a 3,300mAh battery. If you’ve been put off by reports that Android smartphones have poor battery life then the DROID RAZR MAXX is your best bet. Expect to get over a day’s use on a single charge with moderate usage.
Upcoming Verizon phones: HTC DROID Incredible 4G, DROID RAZR HD, Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy Note
Now if you don’t mind waiting for a while, you can hang back for the HTC DROID Incredible 4G which comes with the latest Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor. Following closely is the Motorola Droid RAZR HD which is identical to the RAZR MAXX but has a larger 4.6-inch HD display and comes preloaded with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Other than the above to upcoming Verizon phones, there are three more which are rumored to land on Verizon but there is no solid evidence yet – the Samsung Galaxy Note, HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Pick your poison.
