5 Best Verizon Phones [January, 2015]

If you’re in the market for a new Verizon phone this month, you are going to encounter a mind-boggling number of options. Verizon’s lineup is chock full of big name devices. With that in mind, we take a look at the Verizon phones we think you absolutely must take a look at before buying your next device. These are the devices we think represent the five best Verizon phones in the first month of the year.

Those of you looking for a new Verizon smartphone in the first month of the year will have to contend with the big names from last year. Companies like Apple, HTC and Samsung typically wait until later in the year to release their new flagships. 2015 is no different.

Fortunately for you, 2014’s crop of Verizon smartphones was excellent and it yielded some of the best phones to ever grace Big Red’s sprawling 4G LTE network. Choosing between them is not going to be easy for those of you that aren’t familiar with the landscape and that’s why we want to point out our top choices for this month.

Apple's new iPhone 6 replaced Verizon's iPhone 5s as the carrier's iPhone flagship. Unsurprisingly iPhone 6 is considered, by many, to be one of the best smartphones on the planet and a device that Verizon customers should look at before settling on a device in the early goings of 2015.

Apple's iPhone 6 comes with an assortment of top notch features including a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, a speedy A8 processor, a fantastic rear camera, a metal design, Touch ID fingerprint technology, tons of storage space, and the company's brand new iOS 8 operating system.

Verizon's iPhone 6 isn't cheap, it starts at $199.99, but those that buy into the new iPhone will be getting one of the best phones on the market and one that should last three years or more thanks to new iOS software updates. Apple tends to keep iPhones updated for three years before cutting off support.
