Flagship Android, iOS & Windows Phone Smartphones: Specs Comparison

Advertisement

With each passing year, the number of smartphones that hit the market keeps rising, even as the brutal tech market forces certain manufacturers to throw in the towel. While the head honchos of the market dish it out, constantly trying to one-up each other in the hardware specifications race, the consumers find themselves spoiled for choice. Low-end and mid-range devices might satisfy the regular user, but a technology enthusiast will seldom settle for anything but the best an OEM or developer has to offer. The list of choices for the latter is only relatively short, the key word here being ‘relatively’. One would still have to skim through a lot of specs sheets and device reviews to make an informed decision. To make the first part easier for you, we’re going to be compiling and comparing the specifications of current flagship Android, iOS and Windows Phone smartphones from major manufacturers and developers right here.

    I love my Galaxy S4 despite all of the groaning about Touchwiz. Think about it, it’s an Android phone, so it’s customizable. Just use another launcher and everything will be golden.

    • That’s exactly how I feel about my Note 3.

    With increasing power and bigger brighter screens, a removable/replaceable battery is a must.

    The others might be nice when new, but after a year or so when the battery is tired from 300+ recharges you’re going to struggle to get one day out of it.

    Samsung wins by default.
