As we approach the end of 2013, smartphone shoppers, particularly those on Verizon, now have a pretty good idea about what devices will be on the shelves for the next few months at least. Companies have put forth their best efforts and are now starting to focus in on their offerings for next year. And while some people might think that things slowing down will make a decision on a new smartphone easier, we beg to differ.
This year has been very kind to smartphone shoppers. From the Samsung Galaxy S4 to the HTC One to the new iPhone 5s, 2013 has produced devices that are arguably the best smartphones in history. Of course, that also tends to make life harder for those that are looking for a new device as the shear amount of options can be overwhelming.
Right now, in particular, might be the absolute worst time for smartphone shoppers as companies have exhausted their 2013 pipelines. This means that carrier lineups are as full as they have been all year, especially at the largest service provider in the United States, Verizon Wireless.
Verizon, like the other major carriers in the United States, has deployed a great number of high-end smartphones throughout the year. This shouldn’t have come as a surprise to anyone as the nation’s largest 4G LTE service provider is always near the top when it comes to its selection. Problem is, the amount of choices can be overwhelming to those that don’t follow along all year.
Right now, the carrier has a wealth of options and we expect it to start promoting those options ahead of the biggest shopping day of the year, November 29th, Black Friday. Many shoppers have been waiting for these smartphone deals to arrive and have their sights set on a new Verizon smartphone. Many of those shoppers though, probably don’t know what to look at first.
Ahead of Black Friday, we wanted to help those still on the fence and present the devices we feel are the five best Verizon smartphones for the month of November.
Love Apple or hate it, there is no denying that it makes great hardware to pair with equally great software. The iPhone 5s continues this and it deserves to be at the top of any Verizon shoppers list during the month of November.
While it's not going to be as cheap as many of its competitors, buyers can purchase the iPhone 5s knowing they are not only going to get a solid smartphone from the start but also get a solid smartphone for three years. Apple tends to keep its devices upgraded for three years which means users can sign a contract and feel comfortable.
It also helps that it has one of the best cameras on the market, a solid display, and an industrial design that is both slim and lightweight. It's a smartphone that simply cannot be ignored.
