With so many smartphones to choose from, many customers find picking a suitable smartphone a daunting task and, therefore, we take a look at the top 5 high-end smartphones available on the carrier.
Apple has always attracted massive numbers of smartphone enthusiasts with the iPhone launch. The iPhone 5, launched in Sept. 2012, was no different and enticed huge number of iFans to buy the handset. For the first time Apple has increased the size of the handset to 4 inches and the handset runs on iOS 6. The handset is also the thinnest and the lightest in the iPhone line-up of smartphones. Verizon sells the handset for $199.99 on a two-year contract and for $649.99 outright.
Samsung Galaxy S4
Samsung recently launched the much-awaited Galaxy S4, which has received a big welcome in the smartphone industry. The credit to the much-created hype goes to the success of the Galaxy S3 which took over the hearts of millions of customers. The Galaxy S4 touts a 4.99-inch display and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
The handset has a price tag of $250 with a two-year contract on the carrier but you get $50 back after the mail-in rebate, bringing the price of the handset in par with iPhone 5. If you want to buy the handset outright then you end up paying the same amount as the iPhone 5.
