Some of the big enterprises in today’s cell phone market include Apple, HTC and LG, each of which make their own unique type of phone.

Whether it be the iPhone, the Droid, or the LG Thrill, students want the newest most up-to-date phone.

Here are some of the newest phones that are out right now in order of the brands used most by students.
