Did you hear? The “s” in the name of Apple’s new iPhone 5s smartphone stands for “same” as in more of the same limitations and drawbacks we saw on the iPhone 5 and all of its predecessors. Sure, the new phone has a faster processor, support for speedy 64-bit applications and a built-in fingerprint reader, but none of those new features bring it close to offering the power and flexibility you get with Android. Here are 7 reasons Android beats the iPhone 5s just as badly as it beat last year’s model.
2011 called and it wants its screen back. Today, you can’t launch a flagship phone that’s any smaller than 4.7 inches or that offers any less than full HD resolution and expect to be taken seriously . . . unless you’re Apple. Leading Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One provide 1920 x 1080 resolution -- the same size as a Hollywood movie -- on 5-inch and 4.7-inch screens while the iPhone 5s offers a measly 4-inch display with a less-than-HD 1136 x 640 resolution. That’s great specs for two years ago.
