5 Best Verizon Prepaid Phone
Who doesn’t know about the iPhone X? Well, it is one of the most popular phones of our time and it comes with features to rival any modern day smartphone. You’ll be surprised to know that even this premium smartphone is offered on prepaid so you don’t have to get it on a monthly contract system. This is ideal for those who don’t consume a lot of data or minutes, but still require the flagship experience. It will end up being the same price as the contract models, but prepaid gives you more leeway with the money that you’re spending, and sometimes it’s pretty limited in its approach, as you can run out of credit pretty quickly without you even realizing.
Well, in terms of hardware features, the iPhone X is pretty well covered. It comes with a 5.8-inch 2436 x 1125 OLED display, which is a first for an iPhone. The phone also comes with the hexa-core Apple A11 Bionic processor, 3GB of RAM, 64/256GB of non-expandable storage, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, a 7-megapixel front camera, iOS 11.3, and a 2716 mAh battery under the hood. Going by the hardware features it’s packing, the iPhone X is tough to beat right now. But even then, the smartphone sometimes pales in comparison to a few Android offerings, as we’ll find out towards the end of this article.
You will have to shell out $999 for the 64GB version of the iPhone X on Verizon Prepaid, so you’re spending the same amount of money as you would on an unlocked or off contract model. The 256GB version will cost $1149 on Verizon Prepaid. The carrier is offering free next day shipping with this product.
Made by LG, the Pixel 2 XL is an upgrade on all fronts compared to the original Pixel XL (made by HTC). The Pixel 2 XL comes with a massive display, flagship level hardware and a pretty reasonable price tag, making it one of the better flagships in the market right now. The Pixel 2 XL is a fantastic offering in terms of hardware, and if often considered the benchmark among high end Android smartphones right now.
So let’s have a look at the phone’s hardware and see why it’s impressive. The handset comes with a 6-inch 2880 x 1440 resolution P-OLED display, accompanied by the octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64/128GB of non-expandable storage, a stellar 12.2-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, Android 8.0 Oreo and a 3,520 mAh battery.
Verizon is offering the smartphone in Just Black and Black & White, which aren’t all that different to be honest. You will shell out $849.99 for the 64GB version of the Pixel 2 XL while the 128GB variant will cost you $949.99. This is pretty reasonable in comparison to other flagships available in the market, particularly the iPhone X. Verizon has waived the activation fee with this product, and will offer free next day shipping with the device.
The Galaxy S9+ is the hottest flagship in town right now. It comes with a pretty attractive hardware specs sheet, as you would expect, and an appealing design, which make it the smartphone to own right now. This is the bigger version of the standard Galaxy S9, although some of the hardware underneath is pretty much the same.
The first major difference between the two flagships is the display size. The Galaxy S9+ hosts a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2960 x 1440. The company calls this the Infinity Display, similar to the predecessor. Protecting the device is Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back. The frame is made of aluminum, to provide additional strength to the core of the device.
Other hardware specs include the octa-core Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, an 8-megapixel front camera, a 3,500 mAh battery, and Android 8.0 Oreo. The phone also comes with an always-on display, along with IP68 certification for water/dust resistance.
The Galaxy S9+ is available in Coral Blue, Lilac Purple, and Midnight Black. The sole 64GB variant of the Galaxy S9+ on Verizon will cost you $929.99 right now.
This is LG’s answer to the Galaxy Note8, and we’re not disappointed. LG has launched a flagship mid-year since the LG V10, but has been wise enough to ditch the ticker display on the third iteration, instead sticking to a robust hardware and design. There are minimal bezels here, which is currently the norm in the mobile industry. Further, the 6-inch P-OLED display (2880 x 1440) is also somewhat new for the company. P-OLED is also used on the Pixel 2 XL (a phone which LG makes for Google), so it’s not all that new for the Korean manufacturer.
Further, the V30 is packing the octa-core Snapdragon 835 SoC, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, a 5-megapixel front camera, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, Android 8.0 Oreo, and a 3,300 mAh battery. The phone, much like the Galaxy S9+, comes with a rear mounted fingerprint scanner for authentication. However, the Galaxy S9+ offers a wider range of functions with the fingerprint reader compared to the LG V30.
The LG V30 on Verizon Prepaid is currently available in Silver, and will set you back by $840, making it a great deal cheaper than the Galaxy S9 lineup.
It’s no surprise that Samsung dominates this list as it makes two of the best Android flagships of the year. This is the second flagship to come out of the company in 2017. Coming off the back of the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, the company had a massive point to prove with this particular handset, and needless to say, the market was fairly impressed with the Galaxy Note8. It comes with the company’s dual-camera setup (12-megapixel sensors) as well as an 8-megapixel front camera.
The display is 6.3-inches in size (Super AMOLED) and features a resolution of 2960 x 1440. The rest of the hardware includes the octa-core Snapdragon 835 SoC, 64GB of expandable storage, 6GB of RAM, Android 7.1 Nougat (upgradable to Oreo), and a 3,300 mAh battery. The phone is still pretty fresh despite coming out a few months ago. Taking these factors into account, we think it’s a pretty good deal for $960 on Verizon Prepaid. The handset is available in Orchid Gray and Midnight Black right now.
