The Bottom Line Verizon customers looking for a simple phone will appreciate the Samsung Gusto 2's emphasis on call quality and comfort, despite a few minor flaws. Although it has a competitively low price, Verizon carries better-performing feature phones than the Revere 2 at just a few dollars more. Though its clamshell design isn't pretty, the Kyocera DuraXT is tough as nails, with great call quality, and a respectable camera to boot. With its generously sized screen and smooth performance, the LG Exalt is a top contender in Verizon's line of basic phones. If you can get past its steep price, the massive-screened Motorola Droid Maxx is currently Verizon’s best Android smartphone.
