The first thing you want to know when you’re buying a new smartphone is if it’s worth the price tag. First you have to think objectively. What is the best deal in terms of specifications, design, operating system and battery life? Then you can decide based on emotional response– that I just can’t explain it– factor.
With Apple’s new iPhone 5 snagging all the media attention and Apple’s die hard fans clamoring for the latest and greatest iPhone, it’s easy to get caught up. But remember, think objectively first. We’ve made this handy little table for you so that you can compare spec by spec the top smartphones on the market to the new iPhone 5.
Perhaps the first thing you’ll notice is that many of the specs are the same from smartphone to smartphone, but the slight differences make or break a phone. When it comes to screen size, half an inch really matters to some people. So take a look and ask yourself, do I want an iPhone 5 because it’s trendy or because that’s the phone for me?
