Which New Phones Rival The iPhone?

The iPhone is one of the standard bearers as far as modern consumer technology goes but it has many competitors on the Android market that deserve equal mention. Phones like the Samsung Galaxy range have acted as stern competition for iPhone and this competition has raised the technological bar exponentially for a number of years now. In the space of less than a decade, a phone has gone from being a mere communication device to an all-round multi media centre/personal computer.

The iPhone 5 is set to raise the bar further but Android continues to provide worthy rivals for the mobile crown. If we are choosing our handset using the value versus performance equation then phones like the HTC One X and the Sony Xperia T can both dip in at under the £32 a month mark.

If we go on pure aesthetics not many phones can rival the Android Ice Cream Sandwich based HTC One X. At only 8.9mm thick the One X is a feat of modern engineering. Its super bright 4.7 inch HD screen emanates from the wafer thin chassis in a manner that would have been mind-blowing to mobile users just a decade ago. Beneath the aesthetics lies a monster of a Quad Core Tegra 3 processor.

The Sony Xperia T has a similar aesthetic vitality about it, mimicking older designs like the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S with its use of the arc type curves and sleek lines. It has a 4.6 inch Bravia enhanced display and a huge processor – a genuine rival to the iPhone that’ll be available for around £26 a month.

The aforementioned Samsung Galaxy S3 is currently the iPhone’s major rival with the media baiting the technological war between the two giants. Like all the other monthly paid contract phones that rival apple’s latest release, it has a much larger screen than the iPhone 5. The S3 is a powerful and stylish smartphone with all of the advancements and innovations you’d expect from a market leader and it’s also the critic’s choice judging by the awards it has won already.
