We compared the iPhone 5 with its direct competition

Since Phil Schiller took the stage of the Yerba Buena Center for two days to present the new iPhone 5, this has generated a lot of opinions. There is love and whom some believe that Apple should have made a more radical change. Still, all analysts agree that the new smartphone from Apple will be a sales success, surpassing all previous models. Today I want to teach those who are going to be rivals of the new iPhone 5, the only ones who can do that sales of Apple's new terminal will suffer.

Samsung Galaxy S III

We have already commented on several occasions that the Samsung Galaxy S III is still a best seller in most of the world, however it is the best selling phone of 2012. Admittedly technically impressive: 4.8 HD SuperAMOLED screen pulgdas and resolution 1280 × 720 pixels, quad-core Exynos processor at 1.4 GHz per core, 1 GB of RAM, microSD slot, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and camera 8-megapixel camera with video recording with 1080p resolution.

Besides the hardware, the Samsung Galaxy S III is governed by a version of Android Ice Cream Sandwich (although I already updated Jelly Bean) amended by Samsung with its familiar interface TouchWiz UX Nature, which give such interesting features as Music Hub, PopupPlay, All Share, Direct Call, S and S Bean Voice.

The features introduced by Samsung at very much reminiscent software features that Apple introduced in iOS does nothing. Thus, S Voice is a copy of Siri and All Share is a blatant copy of Air Play. On the other hand, the design of the Galaxy S III, in my opinion, leaves much to be desired, as does the use of plastics for manufacturing. Similarly, it is still a good smartphone, but do not think I can stand up to the iPhone 5.

Nokia Lumia 920

Perhaps it is the strongest rival to Windows Phone 8 to be the iPhone 5. Among its technical features have a curved screen of 4.5 inch IPS 1280 × 768 resolution, dual-core processor at 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, 1 GB of RAM, 8.7 megapixel camera and battery technology PureView 2000mAh with wireless charging.

To move all this hardware the Nokia Lumia 920 has the new Windows Phone 8, which will bring new screen resolutions, NFC support, revamped home screen and Speech Platform, another copy of Siri. In short, a good hardware with a very good operating system and visual.

What is the problem with Windows Phone smartphone? The app store. The involvement of the developers on this platform is not at all comparable with iOS or Android. This is what is really holding back the possibility of increasing Windows Mobile Phone, the lack of applications. If this changes, the Nokia with Windows Phone could be rivals for the iPhone 5. Meanwhile, Apple might not need to worry.


When Android started his journey in the market, HTC was one of the major brands of smartphones in the market. In recent times, have been completely overshadowed by Samsung and Apple. HTC needed a revamp and get it introduced the HTC One X.

One of the thinnest smartphones on the market, as only 8.9 mm. It has a 4.7-inch screen with 1280 × 720 resolution, with a brightness control and contrast to rival the iPhone retina display. The box features the complete processor nVidia Tegra 3 to 1.5 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, support for NFC and a 8 megapixel camera with a much improved optics.

As for software, the HTC One X comes with Android operating system but enhanced by HTC Sense 4.0 with his mask. In HTC have given much importance to the chamber of the new One X, and also to improve the optics, are optimized to maximize the software that controls the camera, which can control the type of trigger, the shutter and frame seconds.

Even with all this, the HTC One X terminal is not better than the Samsung Galaxy S III. And of course, neither is better than the iPhone 5, so we see no reason why this could take smartphone sales Apple iPhone.

We conclude this article by saying that the main rival to the iPhone 5 is still the Samsung Galaxy S III, although as is the issue of patents could be forbidden to sell the same in many countries, which would lead to Apple. The HTC One X is a good choice if you want an Android, but we do not change your mind to buyers of the iPhone. And as for the Nokia Lumia 920, either currently believe may be rival to the iPhone. But beware, if developers begin to trust the system of Microsoft, this can change very quickly, as the Lumia 920 has a good hardware and a dedicated operating system and original.
