Best Verizon prepaid phones:

Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of the best Verizon prepaid phones regularly as new devices launch.


1. Samsung Galaxy S10 series

The Galaxy S10 series was a big deal when it launched, with the OEM trying to generate some hype around its flagship line to celebrate a decade of phones. This range includes the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e, and S10 Plus. While the phones range in size, they all offer top-of-the-range specs and premium designs. Standout features include massive screens, a bevy of cameras, and in-display fingerprint sensors.

Of course, the high-end nature comes with a high-end price tag. But if you’re happy to splash the cash, these are still some of the best phones money can buy.

2. Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and 10 Plus

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Verizon prepaid

The Galaxy Note range has always been aimed at the power-user. It’s been dubbed the “Swiss army knife” of phones, thanks to its huge range of different features and pull-out-all-the-stops specs. This latest generation of handsets doesn’t quite have this same feel (especially the “watered down” Note 10), but it still offers a ton of functionality in a very attractive package. Samsung seems to be going for a slightly wider market this time around, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. And it’s still the only phone you can get with a stylus among the Verizon prepaid phones.


Samsung Galaxy Note 10 specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: SD 855 or Exynos 9825
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Cameras: 16, 12, and 12MP
  • Front camera: 10MP
  • Battery: 3,500mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus specs:

  • Display: 6.8-inch, QHD+
  • Chipset: SD 855 or Exynos 9825
  • RAM: 12GB
  • Storage: 256/512GB
  • Cameras: 16, 12, and 12MP + ToF
  • Front camera: 10MP
  • Battery: 4,300mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

3. iPhone 11 series

These are the latest flagship iOS-based handsets from Apple and come in three different models. All three phones come with Apple’s latest and fastest processor, the A13 Bionic.  The standard iPhone 11 is the most affordable of the three models, with a price starting at $699.99. It has a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina Display, two 12MP rear cameras, a 12MP front-facing camera, and a battery that is supposed to last one hour more than the one in last year’s iPhone XR. It comes in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage versions.

The iPhone 11 Pro’s biggest feature is a triple rear camera setup, with standard, telephoto, and wide-angle lenses, all of which are 12MP sensors. It also has a 5.8-inch display and a battery that should last up to four hours longer than the one of last year’s iPhone XS. The iPhone 11 Pro Max is basically the bigger 6.5-inch version of the iPhone 11 Pro, with a battery that should last up to five hours longer than last year’s iPhone XS Max.

  • Display: 6.1-inch, 1,792 x 828

4. Google Pixel 4 XL

The Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL are the latest high-end flagships among the Verizon prepaid phones from the company that developed Android. While they sport the Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, and up to 128GB of storage, their best feature is the camera hardware and software. The dual 12.2MP and 16MP rear sensors allow owners to take images that are very impressive. The Night Sight feature lets you take the best low-light camera images from any smartphone. If you’re into photography, you can’t go wrong with either one of the latest Pixel phones.

The Pixel range could be considered the Android iPhones, but what’s wrong with that?


Google Pixel 4 specs:

  • Display: 5.7-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 12.2MP and 16MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 2,800mAh
  • Software: Android 10

Google Pixel 4 XL specs:

  • Display: 6.3-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 855
  • RAM: 6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 12.2MP and 16MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 3,700mAh
  • Software: Android 10

5. Motorola Moto Z4

The Moto Z4 offers a middling set of specs and a fairly mixed bag in terms of features. It leans into this Frankenstein’s Monster feeling by adding the series hallmark of optional mods. So while the camera is so-so (despite those megapixels!) and performance can vary, it still offers something you won’t find anywhere else among the Verizon prepaid phones. It also has a fair bit going for it, as we found in our review.


Motorola Moto Z4 specs:

  • Display: 6.39-inch, Full HD+
  • Chipset: Snapdragon 675
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Cameras: 48MP
  • Front camera: 25MP
  • Battery: 3,600mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

6. Samsung Galaxy A50

The Galaxy A50 is a great alternative on the Verizon prepaid phones list for those not looking to splash out on a flagship like the Galaxy S10. The A50 comes with a multi-lens camera array that definitely impresses, a large AMOLED display, and a strong design. It’s middling in the performance department, however, and low-light photography is lacking. Hey, you can’t have it all!


Samsung Galaxy A50 specs:

  • Display: 6.4-inch, Full HD+
  • Chipset: Exynos 9610
  • RAM: 4/6GB
  • Storage: 64/128GB
  • Cameras: 25, 5, and 8MP
  • Front camera: 25MP
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

7. Motorola Moto G7 Power

If you want to get a solid phone that doesn’t cost a ton, the Moto G7 Power may be for you. It offers a big 6.2-inch display, the Snapdragon 632 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage that can be expanded with an SD card — up to 512GB. You also get a 12MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. Finally, this phone has a massive 5,000mAh battery, which should last you up to two days on a single charge.


Motorola Moto G7 Power specs:

  • Display: 6.2-inch, HD+
  • Chipset: Snapdragon 632
  • RAM: 3GB
  • Storage: 32GB
  • Cameras: 12MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

8. Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL

Google Pixel 3a Purple-ish Rear Ground

The Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL are not as powerful as the regular Pixel 3 series. However, both still pack what counts: the Google camera. The camera in Pixel devices is frequently cited as one of the best you can get in any smartphone, and with the Pixel 3a series, you’re getting that camera for very little money.

Additionally, you’re going to get frequent Android security patches directly from Google and be one of the first to experience new versions of Android, as they always land on Pixel devices first.

That all being said, you’re going to sacrifice some processing power in exchange for spending less cash. While the Snapdragon 670 isn’t terrible by any means, it’s certainly no Snapdragon 845 as we saw in the Pixel 3, and definitely no Snapdragon 855 as we saw on most of the other flagships on this list.

If you don’t know how to pick between the 3a or the 3a XL, it’s pretty simple: the 3a XL is larger and has a slightly larger battery. Other than that, the devices are essentially the same. They are certainly two of the best Verizon prepaid phones you can get.


Pixel 3a specs:

  • Display: 5.6-inch, Full HD+
  • Chipset: Snapdragon 670
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64GB
  • Cameras: 12.2MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 3,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

Pixel 3a XL specs:

  • Display: 6.0-inch, Full HD+
  • Chipset: Snapdragon 670
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 64GB
  • Cameras: 12.2MP
  • Front camera: 8MP
  • Battery: 3,700mAh
  • Software: Android 10

These are our picks for the best Verizon prepaid phones you can get, although there are a lot of other great options available as well. We’ll be sure to update this post once new models hit the carrier.
