Apple iPhone 5s (Verizon)
One of the features that’s been lacking when it comes to teen phones (which arguably should be one of the most important) is security. Teens tend to lose things and since smartphones now contain a large part of someone’s life, ensuring a mobile device can be properly locked down is very important. The iPhone 5s was Apples flagship smartphone last year and was notable because of its effective fingerprint scanner security feature.
Like most Apple devices, it’s solidly built, though drops onto concrete may damage the glass on the back of the phone as well as the 4 inch screen. A single charge on the phone will last the average user about a day, but teenage users will probably have to charge more often. The 5s comes equipped with a choice of either 16, or 32 GB of storage, LTE cellular data networking, and an 8 megapixel camera that’s won rave accolades from amateur and professional photographers alike for its crisp image quality.
