Verizon is home to the nation’s largest 4G LTE network, with more than 500 markets covered across the U.S.. The carrier offers a wide variety of smartphones to take advantage of its broad footprint, and with Edge, you can now get a new phone more frequently. To help you make the best choice, we’ve identified Verizon’s fastest, sleekest and longest-lasting smartphones.
Samsung's Galaxy S5 ($199 with a two-year contract, 24 monthly payments of $24.99 on Edge) is an improvement over its predecessor, the S4, in every way. Its larger 5.1-inch, 1080p display is one of the best we've ever seen, while its camera captures crisper, more colorful photos. A high-powered quad-core Snapdragon processor helps the S5 blow past the competition, and its 8.5 hours of battery life means you can leave your charger at home. With a water-resistant chassis, the S5 can also survive a quick dip in up to 1-meter of water. A slick fingerprint reader and a built-in heart rate monitor round out this powerful package.
