Verizon phones, plans and news

Verizon
Founded in 2000, Verizon Wireless is one of the largest mobile carriers in the US, providing service to more than 150 million customers. Verizon provides 4G LTE coverage to 98% of the US population. As of 2020, Verizon is the second-largest carrier in the US.



Verizon’s current lineup of phones is unsurprisingly dominated by devices from Samsung and Apple. Samsung’s three Galaxy S20 models are the company’s top offers with the Galaxy S20 Ultra being Verizon’s most expensive phone, beating even the foldable Motorola Razr. Meanwhile, Apple’s iPhone 11 family is complemented by the recently-released iPhone SE. Of course, Verizon also offers older models from both Samsung and Apple, as well as some Galaxy A-series Samsung phones, which help cover lower price segments.

If you’re not a fan of either brand, a new addition to Verizon’s smartphones is the OnePlus 8, a great alternative if you’re looking for a high-end Android phone. Motorola is also making an appearance in the premium segment with its brand-new Edge+.

Overall, Verizon offers enough diversity in devices to satisfy pretty much any customer at any budget.

Like the other two carriers, Verizon’s main efforts right now are focused on expanding its 5G network. The carrier is constantly adding new cities and improving the coverage in those that already had some. To make use of the fastest speeds 5G can offer, Verizon is also releasing exclusive versions of smartphones that support its mmWave network, such as the OnePlus 8 UW and the Galaxy S20 5G UW.

On the social front, Verizon is running various programs meant to help businesses and other organizations deal with the coronavirus pandemic. In the meantime, of course, it’s not forgetting its individual customers and constantly has great offers and promotions for them. Speaking of...


Verizon’s discounts and special offers on smartphones can pop up at any time, holiday or not. Getting a couple of hundred dollars off a popular phone is a common occurrence and sometimes even brand-new phones come with a buy one, get one free deal. Of course, the conditions for those are usually that you need to activate a new line with Verizon and you’ll receive the amount in credit over the length of the contract. Even then, on some occasions, you might save $1,000 or more. So, if you want to bring a relative or family member over to Verizon and your contract is close to expiring, check for upcoming releases of phones you’re interested in and you might strike big!
