Apple iPhone 5 vs. Samsung Galaxy SIII vs. Droid RAXR Maxx HD

// September 13th, 2012 // Mobile


Let the battle lines be drawn.  Below are comparisons of the new iPhone 5 vs. the top Android competition this year (the Samsung Galaxy SIII and the Motorola Droid RAXR Maxx HD).  The race is fairly even in most areas but Android’s open platform widens the gap with its inclusion of new technologies such as WiFi 802.11 a, wireless charging, expandable storage, USB, and HDMI connectivity (and the ability to do simultaneous voice and data).  In the OS realm, the iPhone 5 introduces features such as Passbook, turn by turn navigation, Facebook integration, snap pic while shooting video, and pull-down notifications that Android users have had for years now.  Sorry Apple geeks, we’re giving this one to Android but kudos to Apple for tightening up the race.
