Rather, our list aims to speak to specific users.Samsung Galaxy Note 20 UltraBiggest and BestIf you’re looking for the biggest and most powerful all-around device from Verizon, this is it. With a screen size (6.9-inches) that rivals early tablets, it packs an upgraded S Pen stylus and cutting-edge hardware. Oh, and then there’s a first-of-its-kind 108-megapixel camera, too.Powered by Android 10 with Samsung’s custom UI, the handset has generous battery, tons of (expandable) storage, and support for Verizon’s Ultra Wideband 5G network.

But if you’re not careful, you could end up spending more money on a phone than necessary. The “Galaxy A” series is a great way to get many of the better features found in more prominent models.Here you’ll get a sizable (6.5-inch) screen, plenty of memory and storage, and a triple-camera setup on the back. Powered by Android 10, it also supports Verizon’s 5G network. The best part? It leaves a few hundred bucks in your pocket.Shop Samsung Galaxy A51 at VerizonGoogle Pixel 4aHard to Beat Value PropositionSure, there are plenty of other devices with considerably more robust hardware at Verizon. Do you want, or need to spend hundreds for that luxury? Nope. This phone is a mid-range phone that punches above its weight. The stock Android experience stays as current as anything you’ll find and it only get better with each, timely update. Toss in a camera that wows anyone and everyone, a solid battery, and a surprising $350 price tag and you’ll just why we like it so much.Shop Google Pixel 4a at Verizon Google Pixel 52020 FlagshipGoogle’s latest smartphone, the Pixel 5, builds on its predecessors in all the right ways, including price. Slightly less expensive than the previous generation, it’s a well-rounded phone that dances between mid-range and high-end hardware.It runs the newest and most powerful version of Android yet and features another excellent camera experience. Standout details include water-resistant coating, wireless charging, and support for Verizon’s Ultra-Wideband 5G network.Shop Google Pixel 5 at VerizonMotorola Moto G PowerEntry-level AttractionWhen you care more about messaging, social media, and tasks than gaming, you don’t need to worry about high-end hardware. But that doesn’t mean you have to skimp on the important stuff.This phone runs a lean and mean Android 10 and features a sizable 6.2-inch FHD+ screen. The inner workings are sufficient enough to get the job done for many users and the 5,000mAh battery ensures it goes all day.Shop Motorola Moto G Power at VerizonMotorola RazrBest Folding PhoneThe selection of folding phones isn’t all that vast, but we do have a favorite. Indeed, we’re fond of the Motorola Razr and it’s not just for its familiar branding.Instead of two phone screens unfolding to form a giant tablet-like display, the Razr is a throwback to clam shell phones. Once opened you’ve got a generous 6.2-inch screen with the same ultra-wide dimensions used by the film industry.It doesn’t hurt that there’s a solid processor and plenty of storage tucked away. The camera experience is also cooler and more practical than you’d imagine, too.Shop Motorola Razr at Verizon
