U.S. Cellular's Kyocera DuraPro has both the brawn and the reliable call performance that make it a good choice for users looking for a rugged feature phone.
Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X.
With its low-end specs and mediocre camera, the Envoy II isn't worth buying -- especially since the Samsung Chrono 2 comes in at a cheaper contract price.
Though the Coolpad Quattro 4G is affordable and has excellent call quality, consider other inexpensive MetroPCS 4G LTE phones instead, like the LG Motion 4G.
If texting is your game, you'll find a speedy keyboard in the Pantech Verse; however, the phone will disappoint those looking for faster data options.
The Samsung Freeform 4 makes solid calls and is great if you're looking for a simple, entry-level handset with a keyboard.
Though its design and feature set are from another decade, the Samsung Chrono 2 succeeds at what a phone should do.
A slower processor, older Android OS, and uneven camera keep the Samsung Galaxy Metrix 4G and its very good slide-out keyboard from reaching their highest potential.
