The Bottom Line The Samsung Gem's decent specs and enviable budget price make this reliable entry-level Android phone a fantastic value. Sleek and powerful, the Samsung Fascinate is another strong addition to Verizon's Android lineup. Its user interface won't appeal to everyone, particularly seasoned Android users, but it's a good smartphone for the masses. The lack of 4G will be a turnoff for some, but the Motorola Droid X2's fast performance and good battery life make it one of Verizon's most solid Android phones. The LG Enlighten is a great beginner smartphone for Verizon Wireless customers who want a physical keyboard.
