Verizon supports the majority of the best Android phones if you want to buy unlocked. If you want to buy your phone from Verizon, you can pay full price to get the phone from the carrier, or can opt for monthly payments on your bill. The latter is required for some discounts, so it can be worth it. However, with 36-month payment plans being the only option, you may find yourself paying the device off early if you like to upgrade frequently.

The Google Pixel 6 is priced like a mid-range phone, but it stands toe-to-toe with the best phones on the market. Google's Tensor CPU delivers plenty of performance, and the camera hardware works with the software to provide rich photos and realistic colors.

The Galaxy Z Flip 4 is the latest iteration of Samsung's compact foldable design. Unlike folding phones that open up like a tablet, this phone folds vertically to easily fit in a pocket or bag.

Or, if you're a Samsung fan who prefers a classic phone design, you can also get any of the latest Galaxy S22 phones on the carrier.
