How iPhone 5 compares to the competition

How iPhone 5 compares to the competition

On the heels of our recent “Can Apple wow us again with the iPhone 5?” article, I decided to prepare a little chart (or that’s infographics?) to compare the iPhone 5 with its major competitors in the U.S. The competing devices (as far as I’m concerned) include Samsung Galaxy S II, HTC Evo 3D and Motorola DROID Bionic. I’ve used the rumored specs of the iPhone 5 and will definitely update the image (or create a new one) as soon as Apple officially unveils its latest smartphone. In the meantime, as you’re about to see – the Cupertino guys are facing a tough competition.

I do realize specs are only one piece of the puzzle and that Apple’s key strengths are its coolness and an awesome out-of-box experience. However, those are hard to quantify and will have to leave them for some other graphics.

    You need to get your facts straight. The bionic spects you have are from CES and in thews months since then that phone has been replaced with an upgraded model.

    LOL, this is so wrong on so many ways … How can you put up a info graphic based on speculation.

      Funny comment. Check out this sentence again:
      “…compare the iPhone 5 with its major competitors in the U.S.”

        Oki doke, my bad!

        I have to say, this is still a none valid post as far as I see it, why even bother with this, Wait just a bit longer and than you will find out that Apple didn’t do anything new there, just like every other iPhone ;-)

          I dig what you’re saying and you can even see that from the chart. But people still love reading about the iPhone… and we’re hear to please our readers. :)

            If you are here to please your readers, why on Earth are you listing a phone that Motorola scrapped in the Bionic Etna XT865?  You should have used the Bionic Targa XT875 which is the phone coming out next month.  The specs are out, the user manual is out and I have over 40 pics of this phone.  A lot of that content was retrieved from the FCC site so I would say that is pretty official.

            Since you are speculating on the iPhone specs, how come you didn’t mention the HTC Vigor which some have labeled as the iPhone 5 killer with its rumored specs caught on a speed test which is due out on Verizon in October supposedly.

            I get the fact that people want to read about the iPhone 5 as I’m sure it will outsell the other phones mentioned here.

          “why even bother with this”

          Because it’s fun and gives a little more context with what’s out there, and what’s coming.

            Wow, if you know what’s coming you should write a post about the new Iphone.. ohh.. you probably don’t know whats coming though..

            (If you don’t know whats coming, there is no context)
