Sprint’s best-rated smartphones: Samsung Galaxy Note II, LG Optimus G, Galaxy S III. iPhone 5 isn’t it top 5
We recently told you about the best rated smartphones available at Verizon Wireless. Now it’s time to take a look at what Sprint is offering.
As it turned out, the Samsung Galaxy Note II is the most appreciated handset in Verizon’s portfolio, being rated higher than devices like Motorola’s Droid Razr HD Maxx, HTC’s Droid DNA, and Apple’s iPhone 5.
Surprisingly or not, Sprint’s best-rated smartphone is also the Galaxy Note II (4.7 out of 5.0). Like Verizon, Sprint is selling the Note II for $299.99 on contract – so the handset isn’t one that all customers can afford. Those who can, though, certainly appreciate it, proving once more that Samsung has made a product that truly shines quality-wise.
Second on the list of best-rated Sprint smartphones is the LG Optimus G (4.4). Although LG has already introduced the new Optimus G Pro (which has a Full HD screen, not an HD one like the older model), the G is still a pretty nice handset – worldwide, it’s been sold in more than 1 million units as of mid-January. Sprint is offering the Optimus G for $199.99 on contract.
Next we have another smartphone manufactured by Samsung: the Galaxy S III, which is rated 4.2, and can be bought for the same price as LG’s handset ($199.99 on contract).
iPhone 4S is on the fourth position (4.1), while the fifth place is shared by HTC Evo 4G LTE and iPhone 4 (rated 4.0).
In case you’re wondering, iPhone 5 is on the 9th position, sharing that with Google’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus (both handsets are rated 3.8). Ahead of them we can find the venerable BlackBerry Bold 9930, and the Samsung Galaxy S II.
On March 22, Sprint should introduced a new device that might make it in top five best-rated smartphones: the HTC One (aka M7), which will come with Android Jelly Bean, a 4.7 inch 1080p display and a quad-core processor, seemingly costing $199.99 on contract (16GB version). The HTC One should make its debut on AT&T and T-Mobile on the same day, too.
The third largest US mobile carrier is also getting ready to introduce its first two Windows Phone 8 handsets. These will be manufactured by Samsung and HTC – and that’s all we know about them.
