3 Best iPhone 5 Alternatives
It’s hard to argue the fact that the iPhone 5 is one of the best smart phones on the market, and although Apple has had a few issues, their devices are always cutting edge and immensely popular. If, for whatever reason, you’re not looking to buy an iPhone 5, there are plenty of worthy alternatives. Many brands are releasing solid competition for Apple, and with the widespread popularity of mobile operating systems like Android, consumers are finding reliable alternatives that they prefer over Apple. Here are the top three best smart phone alternatives for the iPhone 5
Samsung Galaxy S3: Easily Samsung’s most popular (and fastest selling) device to date, the Galaxy S3 has been the iPhone’s strongest competitor. It’s ultra vibrant and crisp Super AMOLED display, measuring in at a surprising 4.8 inches (almost a full inch larger than the iPhone 5) and it’s incredible Quad-core 1.4 GHz processor, makes it one of the most powerful phones on the market today. On top of that, users can also enjoy expandable memory (up to an additional 64GB), an NFC chip, stereo FM radio, and even Java support, none of which can be found on the iPhone 5.
HTC One X+: The anxiously anticipated sequel to the popular One X model will be worth the wait. Boasting a powerful Quad-core 1.7 GHz NVIDIA Tegra processor, and running with the latest user interface from HTC: v4, you can expect seamless multi-tasking, browsing, navigating, gaming and more. One X plus will also offer an NFC chip, Beats Audio enhancement and plenty of talk time with a Li-Ion 2100 mAh battery.
Nokia Lumia 920: If you’d prefer the Windows mobile operating system, no brand does it better than Nokia’s Lumia series. The 920 will be running Windows Phone 8, which will be faster, smoother, and more customizable than ever. Expected to be released in November, you’ll enjoy a generous 4.5 inch IPS TFT display, lightening fast 4G support, and a Dual-core 1.5 GHz processor. The Lumia 920 will also come with an NFC chip, which means secure mobile payments, something even the iPhone 5 doesn’t offer.
