Apple iPhone 6 Plus ( 16GB, space gray)

The iPhone 6 Plus is an outstanding choice for those with big budgets and big pockets, but power users seeking even more flexibility should audition the Galaxy Note 4 as well.

REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 ( charcoal black)

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will thrill anyone who loves a fast phone with a large screen, but it's best for compulsive scribblers willing to pay a lot for its winning stylus.

Google Nexus 6 ( 32GB)

Although the Nexus 6 trails the slimmer Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in processor performance and native productivity features, it's still the most powerful pure Android handset available and the largest Nexus yet.

Huawei Honor 6 Plus
REVIEW

Huawei Honor 6 Plus

With its good screen, strong processor and solid camera, the Honor 6 Plus is well-equipped for most all the social-networking fun you could want and doesn't ask for much cash in return. It's a shame about its clunky, outdated software, though, which does somewhat take the shine off.

REVIEW

Motorola Droid Turbo ( 64GB, black ballistic nylon)

Even with its hefty design, the Motorola Droid Turbo's robust battery, powerful processor and vivid display put it on the short list for Verizon customers.

ZTE ZMax

Though the ZTE ZMax has some design flaws, they're minor enough to overlook if you want an incredibly inexpensive phablet off-contract.

HTC Desire 510
REVIEW

HTC Desire 510 ( black)

The HTC Desire 510 doesn't have the specs to excite committed tech fans, but it handles the basics well, has 4G LTE for superfast data speeds, and it doesn't cost the earth.

LG Watch Urbane
REVIEW

LG Watch Urbane

The LG Watch Urbane is the best-looking Android Wear smartwatch and adds Wi-Fi-to-phone connectivity, but it doesn't offer all that much more than previous Android Wear watch models.

BlackBerry Classic
REVIEW

BlackBerry Classic

If you're willing to trade screen size for a superior physical keyboard, the BlackBerry Classic is a fantastic productivity phone for old-school QWERTY junkies.

REVIEW

LG L90

Though it doesn't have LTE and takes unimpressive photos, the LG Optimus L90 remains a worthy midrange contender that you should look at if you're on a budget.

Sony's variant on the Xperia Z3 is nearly the same excellent overall phone on Verizon, albeit with a slightly dated external design.

REVIEW

Samsung Galaxy S 5 Active ( AT&T, Ruby Red)

Though it's only marginally more durable than the original Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 Active's physical buttons and high-end features keep it in Samsung's hit parade.
