After a year of fierce smartphone competition, is Apple still leader of the smartphone pack?

 

We’ve put the new Apple iPhone 5 through it’s paces, and the results are in. After a year in which we’ve seen some fierce competition from the likes of the Samsung Galxy S3, the HTC One X and the Nokia Lumia 920, is Apple still top dog in the smartphone stakes?

To get the full low down, read our review on the iPhone 5 here.

However as the reviews of the device roll out, opinions are more mixed than they have been in the past. Though still overwhelmingly positive, we haven’t seen the comprehensive wave of 5 star reviews previous models have got. Check out our roundup here.

A common sentiment is that while it’s the best iPhone, it’s no longer necessarily the best phone in general.

To get all the gory details, read our in-depth review.
