The iPhone 5 Falls Behind Android on All US Carriers According to Consumer Reports
It looks like Andy is making a tasty snack out of Apple, and a major shift has finally occurred. Consumer Reports shared their latest compile data, and the iPhone 5 has fallen behind Android on all US carriers in rankings. As you can see in the snapshot of their recent report pictured below, for AT&T, the iPhone 5 comes in third after the LG Optimus G and the SGS3. The exact same result is true for Sprint as well. On Verizon, the iPhone 5 doesn't even rank in the top 3, and it doesn't rank at all on T-Mobile since they don't sell it yet.
It's interesting (but not surprising) that on Verizon the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD and Droid RAZR HD ranked first and second respectively. Overall, the iPhone 5 has sold very well, but it appears that consumers are now starting to become more enamored with the Android tech than Apple's latest offering. It's probably not too surprising since the iPhone 5's hardware and software specs were still a little bit behind it's older Android competition even on the day it launched.
Even though most of us already knew this, it has now become "official" (at least according to mass consumers) that the iPhone is no longer the top-of-the-line smartphone product in the mobile world.
