You might not be able to get hold of the LG Nexus 4 on Verizon this year, but they do have many other superb devices and here are three of the best currently on the market.
Best Verizon phones on the market: Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD, Samsung Galaxy S3 & Note 2
The Droid Razr Maxx HD is one device that stands out thanks to it having great battery life and a durable body and it has great looks.
The device comes with a battery of 3300mAh which is said to offer around 32 hours of usage. Even when using the LTE connection you really have to do a lot to drain the battery.
The Razr Maxx HD comes with a very light skinned Android version, which is not far from stock. Along with this is the Android 4.c complaint button set up on screen, which helps to offer one of the best experiences on Android. Motorola have also pulled up their socks when it comes to upgrades, thanks to being in the hands of Google now.
You can get the Maxx HD with Verizon on a contract of two years for $300.
The Galaxy S3 is of course well known as it comes with the superb display, great camera and performance that is second to none, all wrapped up in a shell that is smooth.
However some of the design does take away from the user experience, such as the button setup, which is awkward. However there is a lot of good to make up for this, after all the millions of owners cannot be wrong.
You can get the device with Verizon for $200 to $250 on a contract of two years.
For those who are stuck between getting a tablet and phone, the Note 2 may be ideal. This has the same design and hardware as the Galaxy S3, only improved, but it has been supersized. It comes with a display of 5.5 inches in the 5.9 inch by 3.2 inch device.
The Note 2 has a great stylus in the form of the S Pen and this is superb for artists and those who like to write on the screen.
Some of the design holds it back, just like the Galaxy S3, however it has so many other positive qualities about it that the device is compelling.
The Note 2 is available with Verizon on a contract of two years for $300.
Other handsets that are worth a mention include the Droid DNA, which is available for $200 with a two year contract and has a high resolution display and great camera.
The Droid Razr M also receives an honourable mention and it is available for $50 with a two year contract. The device is compact but it has a great build and performance that is solid and of course it comes with a great price.
