Over at PCMag.com earlier today, a list of numbers and figures were published showing just how well the iPhone 5 performs against its competition and against older iPhones. In almost every category and test, the iPhone smokes its competition. Just goes to show, you don’t need to boast about specs to have a great device. The most recent benchmark to make the headlines earlier this week was the Sunspider result. The sixth gen iPhone became the first ever phone to break the 1000ms milestone.
As I’m sure you’ve picked up on, the Galaxy SIII does beat the iPhone in one or two categories, but, not overall by any stretch. Perhaps indicating why Samsung is running its childish smear campaign, and attempting to ban the iPhone 5 before they know what’s in it. Is the Korean company intimidated by Apple’s new device? You decide.
What this means to the end user/general consumer is that performance on the iPhone 5 should see it placed as one of the top smartphones for the next year at least. It’ll be interesting to see comparisons once the Lumia 920 and the next Nexus phone are released. Stay tuned.
