The 10 best 4G LTE devices on Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon

Summary: The fledging 4G LTE networks of Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T are nothing without decent hardware to back them up. Here are some of the better smartphones and tablets that the carriers offer so far.

  • Released late last year, one of the bigger problems with the 8.2- and- 10.1-inch Xyboard tablets was that their prices made them pretty tough to recommend. Unfortunately, its a few months later and that hasn't changed. Still, if price isn't really an object or you are really intent on buying into Verizon's 4G LTE network, Motorola's Xyboards are pretty solid devices, price considerations very much aside.

    Notable features: Attractive, durable design

  • The latest Sprint 4G LTE Phone to be announced, the EVO 4G LTE is a big deal for both Sprint and HTC. Possibly beating out Sprint's version of the Nexus S 4G, the EVO 4G LTE is a solid, attractive device that comes equipped with a swath of features that HTC hopes will differentiate it from its competitors. 

    Notable features: Fast, camera, dedicated camera button, kickstand, Beats Audio, HD voice

  • Have you heard of the iPad?

    Apple's latest tablet made quite a splash when it appeared earlier this year with a 4G LTE radio stuffed inside it. Verizon and AT&T were, in a word, enthused. 

    Notable features: Brilliant design, Apple ecosystem, etc

  • 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.
