We’re getting close to the end of the year which means that we’re getting close to the start of the holiday shopping season. For many, it has already begun. Many shoppers are going to be in the hunt for a new smartphone, either for themselves or for a loved one, and in particular, many of those shoppers will be looking at AT&T’s current lineup.
As we approach November 29th and Black Friday, many shoppers are starting to key in on the things they will be picking up this holiday season. One of the items that many shoppers will likely be looking at are smartphones, and in particular, smartphones on the nation’s second largest 4G LTE service provider, AT&T. And for those that have waited this long, both good and bad times await.
Let’s start with the good. AT&T has made fantastic strides this year when it comes to 4G LTE connectivity. The network is right up there with Verizon’s network and it dwarfs the networks on Sprint and T-Mobile, making a solid choice for those looking for a new, high-speed smartphone. 4G LTE also makes it appealing to those that are looking for a new contract and carrier. AT&T is also appealing to current customers who own an unlimited data plan as the company will allow those users to keep it.
AT&T also has an extensive lineup of smartphones to choose from, ranging from low-end budget devices to the high-end of things. And while this is great, it’s also going to cause stress for those that may not have a handle on the smartphone industry or the specific smartphones on AT&T’s network.
Choosing a new smartphone for yourself or for a loved one can be a difficult task, particularly at the end of the year when companies have unleashed all of their options. Here, we try and make that decision for a little easier for consumers by offering up what we consider to be the five best AT&T smartphones for the month of November, 2013.
The iPhone 5s is one of the best smartphones on the market right now and it should be on the shopping list of anyone looking for a new device on AT&T's 4G LTE network.
With a speedy processor, fantastic camera, high quality display, industrial design, fingerprint reader for security and convenience and iOS 7, the iPhone 5s is a smartphone that is going to be the best smartphone conversation for the rest of 2013 as well as deep in 2014.
Apple does a fantastic job of getting its devices upgraded with the latest software and that means that buyers should feel comfortable buying the iPhone 5s, knowing that their phone won't get left behind in 18 months. This is a phone that will last three years or more should users want it to.
