Best phones you can pick up from Verizon right now

    Want to purchase a smartphone from Verizon? Check out our list below

    We recently shared with you some of the best Android phones that are waiting for you at AT&T to pick them up. But if for some reason you don’t want to do business with the carrier, we suggest you take a look at its biggest competitor, Verizon. Big Red also has a pretty extensive portfolio of Android phones, ranging from premium to middle-range and really affordable options. There’s something for everyone, so don’t hesitate take a sneak peek and get informed before you make a purchase.

    Google Pixel and Pixel XL

    One reason why customers want to buy from Verizon is that Big Red is Google’s exclusive carrier partner when it comes to the Pixel phones. Google’s 2016 flagships are extraordinary phones with capable specs and a strong design (by HTC). Here at AndroidGuys we really love the phones and we consider them some of the best models of 2016. You can pick up the Pixel for $0 down (for qualified customers) and $27/month on a 24-month contract or for $649 outright. The Pixel XL is a bit more expensive. You can acquire it for $32/month with a 2-year contract or starting at $769.

    Check out their specs:

    Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge

    Until the Galaxy S8 arrives, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge remain Samsung’s current flagships. The phones are scheduled to receive the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update which is bound to make them even better. The devices are the best looking phones Samsung has produced to date and come with apt sets of specifications.

    Verizon offers the phones with a 2-year complementary plan, which means you’ll have to pay a bit more a month than you would at AT&T’s. The Galaxy S7 can be yours for $28/month for 24 months or for $672 outright, while the Galaxy S7 edge costs $33/month or $792 in full. This is what you can expect from handsets, spec-wise:

    LG G5

    The ill-fated LG G5 with its modular approach at smartphoning is available from Verizon. The device hasn’t impressed a lot of customers, even if it comes with a powerful set of specs. Yeah, the G5’s attempt at modularity has been considered a bit awkward, but if you’re willing to look at it as an experiment you might find the G5 isn’t so bad.

    Big Red sells it for $26/month with the customary 2-month plan or for $624 in full if you got the money. This is what you’ll be getting:

    LG G5

    LG G5 1

    • 5.3-inch IPS LCD display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, 554 ppi
    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor

    • 16MP+8MP dual camera/8MP selfie camera
    • 2,800 mAh battery (removable)
    • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow (upgradable to Android 7.0 Nougat)

    LG V20

    Here we have another of LG’s attempt to capture the hearts of phone lovers. Despite LG claiming the phone is selling very well, a new report revealed the now discontinued Galaxy Note7 is still more used than the LG V20. LG is hoping its next-gen G6 will be received better, but until the phone goes official, the V20 can be purchased off Verizon right now.

    We included the phone in our list of Galaxy Note7 alternatives because it features really cool specs. However, the secondary display might be considered a gimmick by most. The V20 is available from Verizon for $28/month for 24 months or for $672 in full. If you want the phone we suggest you get it from Verizon, because AT&T sells it for a whopping $829 outright.

    LG V20

    • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor

    • 16MP+8MP dual camera/5MP selfie camera
    • 3,200mAh battery (removable)
    • Android 7.0 Nougat

    Moto Z Force Droid and Moto Z Play Droid

    While customers didn’t really take to the LG G5, they did love the Moto Z family with its Moto Mods snap-on modules (like the 10x optical zoom camera module from Hasselblad).

    The two phones bring top-of-the-line specs and can be purchased solely from Verizon. The Moto Z Force Droid can be yours for $30/month for the next 24-months or for $720 outright. As for the Moto Z Play Droid you can get it for $408 or free of charge if you are a customer with a line in good standing. Here’s what the two phones can bring in your life.

    HTC 10

    We consider the HTC 10 one of the best Android smartphones of 2016, up there with the Google Pixel. And now you can pick it up from Verizon. Surely you might want to wait a bit, as HTC is rumored to launch a new flagship phone on January 12, maybe the elusive HTC Ocean Note that we’ve been hearing of. But if you want a phone right now, the HTC 10 could be exactly what you’re looking for.

    The device sells for $27/month for 24 months or for $648 outright. Here’s what you can expect from it.
