Transcript:5 Phones With Best Wi-Fi
Hi, I'm Shane Murphy, your technology guru for About.com. Today, we'll review some of the best Wi-Fi capable phones on the market.
Wi-Fi Phones: LG Optimus V
The LG Optimus V is a powerful mobile device with the Wi-Fi capabilities to satisfy all of your smartphone needs. The Android operating system takes great advantage of hotspots with its snappy internet browsing, painless video uploading, and on-the-go blogging with its built in, specialized apps. Even better, this phone is free after your mail in rebate.
Wi-Fi Phones: Apple iPhone 4
Apple's iPhone 4 is an excellent choice to satisfy your Wi-Fi needs if you're not very fond of the Android OS and are drawn to their sleek design paradigms. Even better, your iPhone can function as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, giving internet access to other devices such as your laptop.
Wi-Fi Phones: Motorola Photon 4G
The Motorola Photon 4G is an outstanding choice for your Wi-Fi capable phone if you leave the country often, thanks to its internationally enabled SIM card and enterprise security features. Despite its $200 price tag with a plan, this phone can actually appeal to individuals on a budget, since using Wifi instead of your normal roaming data network can save you a ton of money when traveling abroad.
Wi-Fi Phones: Nokia E5
If you're looking for a Wi-Fi enabled smartphone in the style of a BlackBerry with a QWERTY keyboard for fast messaging, look no further than the Nokia E5. For no cost when you sign up for a plan you can surf the internet using its trackpad for hours, thanks to this phone's stingy energy use. Similar to a hotspot, you can connect the E5 to a laptop via USB cable and surf the web on your PC.
Wi-Fi Phones: Samsung Infuse
Take full advantage of your Wi-Fi connectivity with the Samsung Infuse's massive 4.5 inch screen and kickstand case, the ideal scenario for watching streaming movies. The huge number of streaming media playback options on this phone makes you a walking entertainment center anytime you're close to a hotspot.
