by Jacqueline Bailey on July 31, 2013

It's that time of year again!...time for back-to-school shopping, that is. While you're busy gearing up for a dorm room or new apartment, don't forget about your technology needs. Here is a list of the best smartphones Wirefly offers that you need before going back to school.


The HTC One is sleek in design and a great Android smartphone for back-to-school. BlinkFeed saves you time by giving you one visually stimulating place to review current events and posts from all your social media feeds. HTC also has awesome built-in dual-stereo BoomSound speakers, so you can enjoy playing your favorite tunes the way they're meant to be heard. It has the best all-around camera that snaps great photos whether you're at a football game, tailgate, or your in your new dorm room!

Samsung Galaxy S 4

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 is an Android-powered smartphone with a large 5-inch HD display, great camera, and lots of unique features. The cameras allow you to take photos quickly and in succession, so spontaneous moments don't get away from you. The Samsung Galaxy S 4 is very high-tech with motion and eye commands, allowing you to pause a video with the turn of your head. Show it off in front of your friends!

Nokia Lumia 928 & 925

The Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon Wireless and the Nokia Lumia 925 for T-Mobile are both Windows Phone 8 smartphones, and are perfect for editing and saving Microsoft files. They give you instant information from live tiles, so that you get the information you want right on time. Text messages, news headlines, social media updates, whatever you want, will come through the live tiles as soon as your smartphone receives them. Information travels fast these days, so stay ahead before you get back to school!

Liquipel-treated Samsung Galaxy S III

Wirefly recently started offering the WaterSafe Samsung Galaxy S III, a great quality smartphone with fast, Android software. The best part about this smartphone is obviously the WaterSafe guarantee. On a rainy day, your past phones may have become water-damaged on your walk to class or to the bus stop. With the Liquipel-treated Galaxy S III, you will no longer have to worry about losing a smartphone to water. Check out the video testing the WaterSafe Samsung Galaxy S III!

Sony Xperia Z

The Sony Xperia Z for T-Mobile is the perfect Android smartphone for someone who wants to be a little different. It has similar capabilities to the most popular smartphones like the ones listed above, but it's got an upside; it's water proof! And that doesn't take away from its great look and feel, which make it a sleek and high-tech smartphone.
