Best Verizon SmartphonesBy Reviewed.com Staff
Verizon is one of the biggest wireless providers in the United States. Unlike T-Mobile and AT&T, Verizon's phones tend to be unique to the carrier, and you can't typically use any ol' unlocked phone on their CDMA network. That said, Verizon gets all the big flagship phones you'd want.
Whether you want a Samsung, an iPhone, or even an HTC or a Google Nexus, Verizon has most of the best devices around. These are the best smartphones we've tested that you can find on Big Red's expansive nationwide LTE network.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 offers top-notch design, industry-leading performance, and the best smartphone camera we've ever tested. Like any smartphone, it's not perfect, but it's successes are so numerous that the blemishes are easy to overlook. To put it bluntly, the Galaxy S8 might be the best Android phone we've ever tested.
Yes, it lacks a headphone jack, but the iPhone 7 Plus is also one of the best smartphones we've tested to date. Both its battery and its camera post some of the most impressive results we've ever seen, and it's even sealed up for water resistance. It won't come cheap, but if you're considering a premium, extra-large smartphone, the iPhone 7 Plus is in a class all its own.

At last, Samsung has competition for the best Android smartphone out there.

The HTC 10 is equipped with hardware that's quite literally top-of-the-line, and its performance absolutely reflects that. In fact, were it not for the camera's iffy image processing software, it might be giving the Samsung Galaxy S7 a real run for its money. That said, if you're not concerned with the HTC 10's slightly underwhelming camera performance, chances are you'll love this powerhouse of a phone.

If Apple and Samsung aren't your companies of choice, LG's G6 is a fantastic alternative. It may not be the fastest phone on the block, but its battery life, camera, and overall performance place it just below the top of its class. The addition of a wide-angle lens makes it a great choice for shutterbugs, too. It's not without its faults, but pound-for-pound, the G6 is a winning phone that won't let you down.
