  • While the 4G LTE networks of Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint are all in various stages of rollout, all share one thing in common: they are (or, in the case of Sprint's own network, will be)  fast. But for the sensible consumers,  speed isn't enough unless its backed up by equally speedy and attractive hardware. So in the spirit of informed consumerism, here are some of the best 4G LTE devices that are either available now or will be in stores within the next few months.

  • It's hard not to cheer for the Lumia 900. Both a representative of the Icarian Nokia and Microsoft's impressive-but-struggling Windows Phone OS, the Lumia 900 is an solid, wonderfully designed phone that deserves all the accolades it's been getting.  

    Notable features: Attractive, unique design, 8-megapixel camera, Windows Phone OS

  • Just my take

    I think Sprint has one of the weakest offerings. Hopefully that will change as more devices are added. The only one I see worth getting on Sprint right now is the Nexus. I was glad to see that the Note offered LTE. Now if only Sprint would carry it, I would love to have one. I hope some of the other carriers pick up the Lumina or a design similar to it. I have seen it in action and it really is a nice phone. The biggest loser in this selection IMHO is the HTC Evo LTE. By making this phone without a replaceable battery, I believe that HTC really took a step backwards.
