HTC One/Samsung Galaxy S4
The last spot is a dead heat, a tie. The Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One are both solid phones but they are both getting replaced soon. The Galaxy S4 will be replaced by the Galaxy S5, the HTC One by the all new HTC One. These are tough phones to recommend but we still think they're good enough to warrant a spot on this list.
There are three things to key in on here. One, hardware. Both of these phones still sport hardware that performs. Two, software. Both devices will get software updates for the foreseeable future. And three, price. Both of these phones are much cheaper than they were back when they first arrived.
We like them a lot and Verizon customers should definitely have them on their list.
