|Bottom line|| |
The iPhone 5 completely rebuilds the iPhone on a framework of new features and design, addressing its major previous shortcomings. It's absolutely the best iPhone to date, and it easily secures its place in the top tier of the smartphone universe.
The iPhone 5S is not a required upgrade, but it's easily the fastest and most advanced Apple smartphone to date.
Its laundry list of features require time and effort to truly master, but the Galaxy S4 is the top choice for anyone looking for a big-screen, do-everything smartphone.
A few quibbles notwithstanding, the powerhouse HTC One is a beautifully crafted, near-ideal smartphone.
The iPhone 5C is a great $99 phone that basically replicates the well-reviewed iPhone 5 in a more colorful case.
