The Bottom Line Pumped with high-performing hardware and creative software features, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is an excellent, top-end phone that's neck and neck with the HTC One X. If you can get past its steep price, the massive-screened Motorola Droid Maxx is currently Verizon’s best Android smartphone. A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone. As the first U.S. phone with Ice Cream Sandwich, Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Nexus takes a coveted, solitary step forward. However, once other premium handsets receive the updated Android OS, the Galaxy Nexus will lose some of its competitive edge.
