|Bottom line|| |
The Samsung Ativ Odyssey provides an affordable but not thrilling Windows Phone 8 experience.
Windows Phone fans on Verizon should buy the $100 Nokia Lumia 928 for its strong feature set, but watch out for slower-than-usual data speeds.
Its reliable specs and availability on four carriers make the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini an easy-to-find midtier buy, but you should also compare the S4 Mini with its substantial competition.
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.
First-time smartphone buyers get a lot for a little with Samsung's year-old Galaxy S3 Mini, but keep in mind that this is no high-end performer.
