top 5 Best Verizon Camera Phones as of 2016 (and 2017)

Best Verizon Camera Phones 2016 (and 2017)

The best camera phones from Verizon that we've chosen for 2016/2017 are those which feature high-resolution cameras (usually at least 8MP or higher) and additional camera functions like LED flash, powerful digital zoom, and built-in photo enhancement and editing tools.

A good model will set you back several hundred dollars because they tend to belong to the upper-mid and high-end price range of smartphones offered by different manufacturers. But if you consider taking good-quality pictures with your phone a necessity, you can take a look at the following list of Phonerated's current top picks.

#1. The G5, By LG

Average Stars Awarded:


This fifth edition of LG's flagship G-series tries to solve the dilemma between metal casings and replaceable batteries with its modular concept, which means that its removable base slides the battery tray out so you can replace its 2800mAh battery...

Key features:


#2. The V10, By LG

Average Stars Awarded:


Kicking off a flagship family outside of LG's G-series, the 5.7-inch QHD V10 introduces a few innovative technologies...

What We Like:

  • 2TB's worth of memory outstrips the capacity of most modern-day personal computers
  • Before the V10's dual-lens 5-megapixel selfie cam, we have only seen the dual camera setup on primary rear cameras
  • Having a small quick-access display on top of its premium 5.7-inch QHD IPS Quantum screen is quite a promising facet
  • The MIL-STD-810G-certified shock-proof Dura Guard frame is nice to have on a phone with its level of technology

Average Stars Awarded:


A true blue premium-specked Android, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 introduces the Moto ShatterShield architecture via its 5.4-inch (540ppi) AMOLED screen, with the signature water-repellent nano-coating and Moto Maker in place as well...

What We Like:

  • Having 5 microphones built in is quite impressive, even by premium standards
  • Its 21-megapixel 4K camera with CCT flash is one of the most capable shooters on the 2015 market
  • Its ShatterShield display architecture boldly claims to prevent any and all sorts of screen cracks
  • Motorola's Mobile Computing System, which includes addition processors on top of its CPU and GPU, remains to be a recurring selling point among the brand's front-liners


#4. The Galaxy Note5, By Samsung

Average Stars Awarded:


Taking after the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge's top-line profile, the Samsung Galaxy Note5 banks on an S-Pen-rigged 5.7-inch Quad HD screen (with Gorilla Glass 4 protection), an Exynos 2.1GHz + 1.5GHz eight-core processing system with 4GB of RAM, as well as 16- and 5-megapixel VDIS cameras...

What We Like:

  • It is one of the earliest smartphones to offer Bluetooth v4.2
  • Its 4GB RAM adds it to the rather short list of smartphones that share the spec
  • Mixing the eMMC and SSD memory types (Universal Flash Storage) is an innovative feature introduced by the S6 models
  • The Video Digital Imaging Stabilization feature fittingly matches its high-end 16-megapixel rear sensor


#5. The Galaxy S5, By Samsung

Average Stars Awarded:


The fifth generation of Samsung's flagship smartphone has a faster Quad-core processor (from 1.9 to 2.5Ghz) and a bigger camera (16 megapixels, compared to 13 for the S4)...

What We Like:

  • The 16-megapixel camera (with apparently fast auto-focus) is nothing to spit at
  • The Ultra power-saving mode could be interesting
