What smart phone should I buy?

Episode 1030 (51:46)

Denny from Pasadena, CA

Denny is thinking about getting the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but isn't quite convinced that it's a good idea. Leo says that the Note 3 does a great job reading handwriting, if he writes large enough. Another option Leo really likes is the Motorola Moto X. It has some nice features such as text notifications if he gets a phone call while he drives. It also has a great sleep feature for if he's in meetings or doesn't want his phone to ring. He can talk to it by just saying "OK, Google".

Other options include the Google Nexus 5, HTC One, and Samsung Galaxy S4. The S4 tends to have a lot of unnecessary stuff on it, though. To limit it down, though, Leo says it's really between the Google Nexus 5 and the Motorola Moto X.

Leo says that Danny should make sure to pick the carrier that works best in his area. Can he get a prepaid plan? Leo says he can, if he buys the phone separately. It will need to be a GSM based phone, which means it could work on T-Mobile and AT&T. T-Mobile has a great variety of affordable plans, too.
