The most influential ratings and review magazine Consumer Reports has reviewed Apple’s new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models, praising them for better processor and camera than previous generation but calling the 4-inch Retina display and 8-10 hour battery life “NO MATCH” for latest flagship Androids. According to Consumer Reports
“The iPhone 5s tops the already great iPhone 5 with a surprisingly reliable fingerprint reader, a faster processor, and better-than-ever camera. And the affordable iPhone 5c is a compelling offering for budget-minded buyers. Consumer Reports testers found both phones delivered better performances than the iPhones they succeed—they even have longer talk times (a tad less than 7 hours). Both phones benefit from the latest operating system upgrade (iOS 7), available to existing iPhone models, which gives the Siri voice-activated assistant access to more apps than before, and allows you to access a new Control Center with a swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
Yet, battery life was still notably shorter than on other phones in our tests, including three of the latest Droids from Motorola, which ran for as long as 24 hours. Also, their small screens, while sharp and bright, can’t beat the larger, sharper displays that adorn flagship models from Samsung, LG, and HTC.”
Apple has overhauled its UI with latest release of iOS7. Now, it seems, Apple will have to take another lesson from Android and abandon its more compact displays in favor of larger displays . According to some rumors Apple has reportedly been testing Next Gen iPhones with larger displays. Bigger may not always be better, but its in demand.
