When it comes to smartphones, consumers have more choices than ever before. With countless companies jumping into the market producing a wide array of products,there is no shortage of choice. However, with so many options presenting themselves, it can be difficult to determine what network to sign with or what smartphones are worth purchasing.
Take for example Sprint. With a fast growing 4G LTE network operating in over 402 US cities, Sprint is definitely not a bad option, but what about the devices they carry. Sprint offers a number of devices from a variety of companies such as Samsung and Apple with a range of price points, but what are the top 5 smartphones available from this carrier?
HTC One M8
Coveted by many, including myself as one of the best Android smartphones on the market, the HTC One M8 is an excellent choice for the premium smartphone user. It features the typical but georgeous 1080p display and great internal specs, but the way the HTC One M8 differentiates itself from competitors is what elevates it to greatness. If there are two design features of this device that are a cut above the rest, it’s the speakers and form factor.
The device is sexy with it’s all-aluminium chasis. It feels more premium than other devices on the market. The same goes for the noise produced by the BoomSound front facing speakers. Avaliable for $0 upfront and $27.09 per month for 24 months, the HTC One M8 is a great choice.
Samsung Galaxy S5
Samsung have established a juggernaut in the industry with the Galaxy line of devices and the Samsung Galaxy S5 is no slouch. While it may not have been the leap people were expecting, the device was a leap from something that was already excellent. Packed to the brim with features, no user will find themselves bored with this smartphone. Wrapping that all up with a great 1080p display and powerful internals, the Galaxy S5 is a solid choice. The S5 is available for $0 upfront and $27.09 per month for 24 months.
Google Nexus 5
While the Nexus 5 is more of a budget choice, that in no way means it is a cheap smartphone. Quite the contrary in fact. While the blazing specs and georgeous screen are enough to justify this device, the software truly elevates the Nexus 5. For those who aren’t fans of TouchWiz or Sense, the Nexus 5 is the best choice. What users get with the Nexus 5 is the vanilla Android experience with updates straight away and no bloat ware in sight, and for $o upfront and only $16.67 per month, the Nexus 5 value proposition among other smartphones is damn near unrivaled.
Apple iPhone 5S
Regardless of one’s opinion on Apple, they make solid smartphones and the iPhone 5S is a clear example of this. While the device may be small for some, it still packs punch with the super fast A7 processor and the clean interface of iOS 7. With Apple’s trademark excellent build quality and a fingerprint scanner on top, the iPhone 5S is a good choice for Apple fans and general consumers alike.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the king of the phablet for good reason. With it’s excellent, massive display, powerful specs, great S Pen features and unrivaled battery life, the Note 3 is still one of the best phones on the market months after it’s release. For those with big hands, you’ll find it very difficult to pass up on this fantastic device.
It’s very clear that consumers have a number of options when it comes to smartphones. No matter what choice is made, all of these devices are great choices and no matter what phone you choose, you wont be disappointed.
