Consumer Reports has ranked the Samsung Galaxy S III, LG Optimus G, Motorola Droid Razr HD, and Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD as better smartphones than the iPhone 5.

BusinessInsider posts a photo of Consumer Reports' top smartphone rankings list which appears in the February issue.

On AT&T and Sprint, the iPhone 5 is rated behind:
● The LG Optimus G (Android)
● The Samsung Galaxy S III (Android)

On Verizon the iPhone 5 doesn't even make the list of the top three smartphones. It fall behind:
● The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx (Android)
● The Motorola Droid Razr HD
● The Samsung Galaxy S III (Android)

This is definitely not a report Apple will be happy with.

You iPhone lovers (as I used to be) should give this a read.

In my humble opinion there just isn't any new features either Apple or Android has put out to make me as an average consumer to want to purchase either phones on that basis. They both do the job fine. These bells and whistles do not get used very often unless you want a phone that has exhausted its battery in 2-3 hours. Most of my apps are on the iPhone and I do not see the point in switching and having to repurchase some of the apps I use on an android phone. I purchased the iPhone 5 due to its style, size and support. I like the comfort in knowing I can go to a retail location and know someone with the proper tech experience will assist me if needed. Android and Apple can throw in as many new features as it wants but are they really functional improvements or just something that will not be used. The tech battle ground is no longer the phone, its the tablet.
