Samsung Galaxy S6 Active



For those that need something a bit more durable, AT&T has the exclusive on the Galaxy S6 Active. Which is almost the same as the Galaxy S6 but a much larger 3500mAh battery inside, as well as physical buttons for the home, back and recents. There's also a nice lip around the edge which protects it from any drops that might happen. And we know they are going to happen. It's available in two different camo's as well as just plain black.

The LG G4 is a great smartphone. And it has an amazing camera that is a 16-megapixel shooter, but has an aperture of f/1.8 making for some really great shots.

HTC has always made great looking smartphones, and they did it again here with the HTC One M9. Here we're looking at an aluminum unibody with front-facing Boomsound speakers. As well as a 5-inch 1080p display, powered by Qualcomm's octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There's also a 21MP camera around back this time, and a 5MP front-facing shooter for great selfies.

LG Escape2

LG Escape 2 AT&T

For those that are looking for something a bit cheaper, AT&T and LG have the Escape2. It features a 4.7-inch 720p display, while it's not aluminum it does look a bit like it is. It also has great cameras on the front and back with the 8MP sensor. However there is no laser-autofocus on the Escape2. But you do at least get a flash which is great. LG has also kept the power button and volume rocker on the back for this model.

Google Nexus 6P

While the Nexus 6P isn't sold by AT&T, it does work on their network. Just pop in your SIM card and you're good to go. Huawei has built the Nexus 6P which has a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 resolution display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM with the option of 32GB, 64GB or 128GB of storage. There is no microSD card slot. There's also a 3450mAh battery inside. However the real selling point is that it's a Nexus. So it ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and it will get updates before any other smartphone.

The LG V10 was announced not too long ago and it's a pretty interesting device. It has a secondary display at the top which acts as sort of an app launcher. The LG V10 does have a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 resolution display, again powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 808 processor and 3GB of RAM. The LG V10 is also pretty rugged, and went through plenty of drop testing by LG before it was announced.
