If you’re in the U.S. and frequently travel overseas for business or pleasure, a smartphone with world-roaming capabilities is a good thing to have in your travel kit. The smartphone part of the device gives you access to all the productivity tools you need to get work done on the road, and the world roaming lets you touch base with your colleagues, friends, and family back in the States.

Here are six of the latest world phones we’ve tested recently, but there are plenty more to choose from.

Just be sure to look for quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) support in GSM phones and dual-mode functionality in CDMA models for true world roaming. Check out our quick guide to world phones for more information.
