Those who are thinking about picking up a new T-Mobile smartphone during the month of May will be able to choose between a number of excellent devices. And while choice is a good thing, it can also be overwhelming for those that don’t keep tabs on the smartphone world. Well, we want to help narrow things down and tell you about the devices we think are the five best T-Mobile smartphones for the month of May.
For the first three months of the year, T-Mobile’s smartphone lineup was dominated by devices from 2013. Fortunately, as we’ve moved deeper into the new year, manufacturers have made their moves. In late March, it was HTC that released the HTC One M8. In April, Samsung released the Galaxy S5, its Galaxy S4 successor. Both of those join an already stacked T-Mobile smartphone lineup.
As we head deeper into the year, we’re starting to hear more and more about the iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, LG G3, and Nexus 6. And while some consumers will be able to wait for these devices to arrive, others are going to be stuck looking at the current crop of T-Mobile smartphones.
T-Mobile’s lineup is full of big name devices including including Apple’s iPhone 5s, Motorola’s Moto X, Samsung’s Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3, the LG G2, and more. And that just scratches the surface.
The carrier’s options present a daunting task for those looking to buy a new smartphone this month. So, in an effort to assist those who might be in need of some help, we’ve broken down the devices we think are the five best T-Mobile smartphones for the month of May, 2014.
Our list may differ from yours but these are the devices that Gotta Be Mobile editors have selected for recognition in May. At this time, we feel like these devices deliver the best, all-around package to consumers.
The iPhone 5s remains one of the best smartphones for T-Mobile's 4G LTE network and will likely remain one of the carrier's best options until the iPhone 6 arrives on shelves. iPhone 6 rumors point to an arrival in the fall though specific timing remains elusive.
Apple's flagship delivers a fantastic all-around package. From its industrial design, to its Retina Display, to the 8MP iSight camera, 64-bit processor, and iOS 7 software, the iPhone 5s is a solid device from top to bottom and should be near the top of most shopping lists.
Those who aren't keen on its expensive price tag would be wise to be on the look out for deals. We're starting to see iPhone 5s deals emerge on a more frequent basis as we push deeper into the year.
