|Bottom line|| |
The Samsung Ativ Odyssey provides an affordable but not thrilling Windows Phone 8 experience.
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.
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.
Though it has a few minor flaws, the reliable performance and rock-bottom price of Verizon's Lucid 2 will satisfy first-time smartphone users on a budget.
