Best Verizon Smartphones

By 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.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus

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.

Google Pixel

The Pixel has Google's fingerprints all over it; from the integration of Google Assistant to the architecture of the software, everything about this phone is confident and streamlined, like most of Google's efforts. The camera sits at the top of its class, its battery life is superb, and its quite possibly the fastest phone we've ever tested. At last, Samsung has competition for the best Android smartphone out there.

HTC 10

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.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 ditches a few fan-favorite features like a removable battery and expandable storage, but the trade-offs are well worth it. With a beautiful, functional design, one of the best cameras we've seen in a smartphone, and a giant 5.7-inch display, this is a flagship-level smartphone in every way. And with the updated S Pen, the Note 5 should appeal both to fans of the series and newcomers alike.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+

From edge to edge, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ wears its elegance on-screen. Not only is it a beautiful device, but it's also one of the most powerful phones money can buy. Its camera can't hang with the latest models, and it's not water-resistant like the S7, but it's a winner everywhere else that matters. If you're in the market for a top-tier Android phone, last year's model still has a lot to offer.
