Spec showdown: Apple iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s versus the Android competition


Apple has unveiled the iPhone 5s (the successor to the iPhone 5) and the new iPhone 5c, the colored version of last year’s flagship device. Apple has announced a slew of new features with the iPhone 5s, including a new A7 chip for improved performance, a better camera sensor with larger pixels, a True Tone dual-LED flash intended to match the color tone of your subject better and a fingerprint scanner built into the phone’s home button.

Since covering Apple’s products is not something we typically do, we thought we’d simply give you the highlights and compare the specs of the Apple iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c with those of the latest devices running Android. We’ve also included a second chart that stacks up the two phones against the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4 and other Android devices from earlier this year.

How do you think Apple’s new iPhones compare to the latest Android phones?
