A Google search for this set of terms:
"best cell" 3g "cellular networks" -"best cell phone" -"best cell phones"
yielded the unadorned phrase "best cell" (no quotes) as most common.
I also saw "`best' cell". I suspect that the people in the cell
phone business, if they are your audience, know exactly what a best
cell is without the need for calling attention to it. For a general
audience I would define the term, in italics, in an opening
paragraph, and then use it unadorned henceforth.

I like that word, "inderit." That's what happens to my odious
brother-in-law if I leave him all my credit-card debts in my will,
