Best 4G Smartphones

Culture
Your next smartphone will be a 4G phone, but the question is which one? A slew of them come out almost every week, except for the iPhone which doens�t do 4G yet. Well, I�m hear to help, I�m B.C. with the Top 5 4G smartphones right now according to CNET�s Editor�s Review ratings. #5 LG Spectrum (8.3) The formula: LTE 4G, dual core processor, 4.5� display and HD video in & out. You can just about take that menu for granted with all the phones in this list. And the Spectrum has it. Part of what makes it bottom run on this ladder is the somewhat inconsistent quality of calls and photos and we found the way LG skinned Android, um, �interesting�. #4 HTC Rezound (8.3) Aside from the usual superphone features, here we�ve got an 8 megapixel camera and built-in Beats audio technology along with an included pair of Beats earbuds. On the other hand, this phone is a chunky piece of work and call quality isn�t it�s best quality. Still, it�s a strong phone for Verizon subs and those who want to hear music even more than people calling them! #3 Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket (8.7) The 4.5� screen the Skyrocket is Super AMOLED Plus -- that�s code for incredible -- and its one of the very few phones that has an NFC -- Near Field Communications -- chip so its ready for the coming swipe-to-pay services everyone thinks will be the rage. This being an AT&T phone we�re a little concerned about the pace of that network�s 4G rollout -- check it in your area first because nothing will make you feel stupider than a 4G phone with 3G service. #2 Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon(9.0) This phone almost needs no introduction: It�s the first in the U.S. to run the red hot Android 4.0 -- Ice Cream Sandiwch -- and doing so on Verizon�s well-regarded network. That�s a serious 1- 2 combo. Other phones will get 4.0, maybe even by the time you see this, and we�re a little puzzled by the lack of Google Wallet wireless payment support in a phone so tied to Google. #1 Droid Razr Maxx (9.0). You�ll wanna make friends with the Brawny guy if you buy this phone because it takes hands that big to grip this CNET EC, unique in the industry for its emphasis on battery life.: We got right around 20 hours of call time or an equal amount of non-stop video playback. That�s coast to coast 3 time without a charge! Call quality was so good some people we called didn�t believe we were on a cell phone...or could tell much difference when we switched to its speakerphone. No-worry battery life and great call quality, two things you gave up on years ago.
