    It is of note to see that on the Verizon 11 best sellers list the most expensive phones from Apple and Samsung aren’t showing up. And its nice to see what the other options are. The Samsung Galaxy S7 is at $480. and noted as a high end model. That same phone is even less on Amazon. Considering I will need to make this decision soon, its good to have this information up front.

      I think a lot of people don’t know that Verizon keeps a best seller list. I called their support line to ask how often they collect the data and the support person didn’t even know about this public feature. After some research, support confirmed that bestsellers are updated monthly. And yes, it takes away a lot of pressure to know that not everyone is buying the most expensive phones.
