Best Smartphones from AT&T this Spring

by Reads (8,983)

AT&T built its smartphone reputation on the Apple iPhone, but that’s far from the only device this carrier offers. It has a number of very good devices running the rival Android OS and Windows Phone.

Some might find deciding between all these options isn’t easy, so Brighthand has prepared a list of the very best smartphones offered by AT&T. This should help out anyone shopping for a new model from this carrier. 

Apple iPhone 4S – The latest iPhone runs iOS 5.1 on a 1GHz dual-core processor. It sports a 3.5-inch, 960 x 640 (Retina) touchscreen. The device comes with either 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of internal storage and an 8 megapixel camera. 

It is currently the only smartphone with the ‘Siri’ voice-control system which has proved to be quite popular. Its high-res camera can almost replace a basic point-and-shoot one, and the hundreds of thousands of apps available extend its capabilities tremendously.
