The Top 10 Phones from Verizon Wireless 2014



Giant mobile network Verizon almost always offers a lot of phone models from different manufacturers every year, but the top phones they have for 2014 so far are mostly full-feature smartphones that come with expensive price tags. You can choose from the latest iPhones, Android phones, to even some phones running on Windows Mobile. Some rugged phone brands (designed for outdoor use) have also made it to the list.

Although you might be tempted to go for a flagship phone for your contract-plan because it features the latest technology, you'd better read through this list first before making any decisions because in our experience, latest doesn't always mean the best when it comes to mobile phones.

  • The new home button certainly sounds innovative
  • We can only applaud to more low-light photography ability

* The similar iPhone 5c is also a possibility.

Description:

For little money, the Motorola Moto G offers reasonably attractive specs: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (quad core, 1.2GHz), the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (may be upgraded to Kitkat 4.4 in 2014), and a 4.5-inch high-resolution display (720p HD with a fineness of 329 ppi)...

What We Like:

  • The 1.2Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 400 almost makes our hearts race (considering the low price)
  • The promised upgrade to Android Kitkat 4.4 is sweet enough to put us on a sugar coma

#6. The G2, By LG

Packed with a slew of innovations here and there, the LG G2 starts with a 13-megapixel camera (with various functions, such as voice capture) and a video recorder capable of up to 60 frames per second...

What We Like:

  • 60 frames per second videos will be smooth -- but isn´t it just too much?
  • The 13-megapixel with its various add-on functions
  • The backside buttons actually seem to make one-handed operation easier

#7. The Enact, By LG

Description:

Along with a beefed-up 2460mAh battery and a rare slide-out QWERTY keyboard (most new smartphones are touch only), the LG Enact offers a Starter Mode interface which is designed to ease in smartphone neophytes (and a Standard Mode for power users)...

What We Like:

  • Smartphone QWERTY keyboards are getting rare and we like seeing one once in a while
  • The 2460mAh battery is rather large for a mid-range smartphone
  • The simpler interface option for users that still need hand-holding !]
