|Bottom line|| |
The iPhone 4S isn't the king of cell phones, but it's part of the royal family nonetheless. Even without 4G and a giant screen, this phone's smart(ass) voice assistant, Siri, the benefits of iOS 5, and its spectacular camera make it a top choice for anyone ready to upgrade.
Its laundry list of features require time and effort to truly master, but the Galaxy S4 is the top choice for anyone looking for a big-screen, do-everything smartphone.
The iPhone 5C is a great $99 phone that basically replicates the well-reviewed iPhone 5 in a more colorful case.
If you can get past its steep price, the massive-screened Motorola Droid Maxx is currently Verizon’s best Android smartphone.
The iPhone 5S is not a required upgrade, but it's easily the fastest and most advanced Apple smartphone to date.
