Consumer Reports rated Apple’s latest flagship devices, the iPhone 5s and 5c, and they received great reviews, which should be expected. However, CR did point out that the pair of iPhones weren’t always top-notch in some key areas, like the screen or battery life. Compared to Motorola’s latest Droid line, the both iPhones have much shorter battery life than the near-24 hours they got out of some of Verizon’s Droid family. When it came to the screens of the 5s and 5c, they both fell short against the extremely high-end (and large) offerings from Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 and the HTC One.
Does this mean any of these devices are poor options for consumers? Not at all. It’s just very interesting that many of the features that the iPhone used to tout as “top of the line” like battery life and screen quality (Retina display marketing, anyone?) are being bested by other Android manufacturers.
