Verizon on the Horizon


Verizon is considered the best mobile carrier in the world. At least by it’s supporters. To really get a feel for what the carrier has to offer the only way to do so without diving into the deep end of the contract pool is to get a look at the different phones Verizon supports. So far, the phones have been amazing and it is far from over. This year is shaping up to be one heck of a ride for Verizon fanatics, with all the cool new smartphones out now and the ones that are yet to be almost up for sale. The lineup for LG, Apple, and Motorola is looking great and is going to make for one heck of a great year.


LG is preparing for this year with a powerful phone they think will dominate the market. The LG Optimus G Pro is their pick for the year, and it looks to be a strong one. A recent leak has the rumors speaking of a 5 inch screen with a 1,920 x 1,080 display. This will be paired with the Snapdragon S4 Pro processor which is available with 2 GBs of Ram and 32 GBs of memory. The package is rounded out with a 13 megapixel camera, which is up to the standards of most laptops of today. A very strong contender that has a good chance of living up to the prospects stated by LG.

Motorola has a powerful history with the Droid phones and Verizon, a history that just might be even more glorified with the Motorola X. The device has been in developement for some time, With Google working on it in partnership with Motorola. Both Google and Motorola have big plans for this phone. For now, the scope extends to a lot of special features that you will not be able to find on a Samsung or other competitor phone. It is shaping up to be one heck of a phone this coming year. So now I ask you to consider Motorola’s track record and ask yourself what will this iteration bring to the table?



Nokia also seems to have something on the way if the special patent rumors turn out to be true. Nokia has been plain in their intent on wanting to produce a new phone for this fiscal year to keep up, and it seems that they will be reinventing the wheel instead of churning out a new Lumia or an Asha. It is shaping up to have an aluminum casing and be a midrange between the Lumia and the Asha. Sadly that is all the info available right now, but a new midrange option will be welcome into the ranks of the Verizon phones. We may even get some information about this new phone come the press conference that Nokia has planned during MWC 2013, which is geared up and ready to roll come March.

The Apple iPhone 5 also does a solid job of catering to Verizon’s customers in it’s simple yet effective way. It is definitely one of the more robust smartphone that Verizon fans have available. The interface is clean, simple, and effective. Not to mention Apple set the benchmark price of smartphones at $199. It has everything you could ever want in a smartphone. Finally, the details regarding the iPhone 5S (because we both know it is too soon for Apple to surprise us with a new generation.) are intriguing indeed. Nothing really new, but interesting to see what they plan it implement to hold our interest.


This year is going to be an amazing year for Verizon, that I am sure we all can see. So many top of the line phones already carry a lot of clout in the market and the flow of great tech doesn’t seem to be stopping. These phones go may just change the game and reach a new tier not seen before with Verizon. The best part? It only gets better from here.
