  • With its generously sized screen and smooth performance, the LG Exalt is a top contender in Verizon's line of basic phones.


  • Durable and water resistant, the Kyocera DuraXV is one of the most capable feature phones available.


  • The Sonim XP6 is as rugged as smartphones come, complete with a comprehensive warranty against damage, but the Android experience suffers on its tiny display.


  • The fun-looking Kyocera Verve delivers the bare-bone basics of a feature phone well, and its ability to easily transfer its photos will satisfy casual shutterbugs.


  • Though the Cosmos 3 is free with contract, you're better off paying more for a comparable handset, like the Samsung Intensity III.
