Our top choice for smartphones is the Galaxy S10+, and you can get that at Verizon for a great price. It boasts a great 4k resolution, booming speakers, and other great features if you're choosing to watch shows or movies on your device. We found that the iPhone 11 Pro was a great alternative, and the top choice if you're partial to Apple products. It has a great screen and fantastic sound quality. Plus, if you choose to venture outside, you can take great photos with its three rear-facing lenses and Night sight mode, which means that you can still take great photos in low light conditions. Both are available at Verizon, with many more options at your finger tips. - and there's even a live deal on the latest iPhone.  

Buy the latest iPhone, get iPhone 11 free + Waived activation fee, online only.
