How we choose the best smartphone for browsing ?

All the ReviewGist picks for the best smartphones for browsing come with a screen size of at least 5 inches. A bigger screen with better technology implemented on it always better for a greater readability while browsing the web. The best Samsung smartphones have AMOLED screens and are highly recommended for better outdoor reading as compared to the aging LCD technology. LG devices on the other hand also support low power consuming screens, like the IPS LCD, but they do so at the cost of display quality.

The ReviewGist picks for the best cellphones for internet for 2016 have been acclaimed by experts to support some of the best displays available in the market. The iPhones are also a very good option for surfing which even though do not have the biggest displays, but the screen quality and usability more than makes up to give users an unmatched internet experience.

Our picks for the best cellphones for internet usage also support the latest high speed connectivity features including Wi-Fi (n) and 4G LTE.
