While the smartphone market is set to explode in just a few weeks with the Galaxy S5 and HTC M8 launches, the month of February figures to be a relatively quiet month for carriers like T-Mobile as they attempt to attract customers with last year’s crop of smartphones.
Last year was a big year for T-Mobile. At the beginning of the year, the company abolished contracts and launched a 4G LTE network. Later in the year, the company released the iPhone for the first time in the iPhone 5. It also started carrying Apple’s iPad. Since then, the company has launched some attractive policies to pull in users from other carriers and it has also done a fantastic job of keeping up its smartphone lineup.
At the moment, T-Mobile features just about every big name smartphone on the market, something that helps to make it an attractive option over the likes of AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. And while the carrier should be launching some new, big name devices in the future, right now, the carrier’s crop of devices is made up primarily of last years big name devices.
Earlier this year, we saw T-Mobile announce, and release, the Sony Xperia Z1s but that has been the carriers only major smartphone release of the year. It has been a quiet 2014 thus far. And while that may not be ideal for those that are in the market for a smartphone during the month of February, consumers can take solace in the fact that last year’s smartphone crop was arguably the best yield ever.
T-Mobile has some amazing phones. And while that’s a good thing, it will also make wading through the devices a bit of an ordeal. We want to help make things easier.
Here, we take a look at the devices we consider to be the five best T-Mobile smartphones for the month of February, 2014.
Apple's iPhone 5s is, simply put, one of the best smartphones on the market. And anyone looking to go to T-Mobile would be wise to have it near the top of their shopping list.
The iPhone 5s combines a sleek industrial design with a great display, extremely solid camera, speedy A7 64-bit processor, iOS 7, and a fingerprint reader embedded inside the home button that provides enhanced security and convenience. In other words, it's the whole package.
It's also a device that is going to receive updates for several years to come, making it a device worth looking at during the month of February and beyond.
