Consumer Reports down plays the iPhone in every way it can, getting many facts wrong. First there is a full feature phone write up which doesn't include the iphone. The iPhone is in the Compact High Performers section. And the writeup basically says: The iPhone 5S is smaller and fits in a pocket or purse. It has an excellent camera, 64 Bit, and Touch ID. The 5C comes in colors but is somewhat heavier and thicker than the iphone 5. iPhones are the only 4G phones which can't use voice and data simultaneously on Verizon and Sprint. The smart phone features covered and compated are: Camera, Large Quality Display, Long Battery Life, Voice Recognition, Fingerprint unlock, Infrared Remote, Wireless Sharing, Multiple Windows, Wireless Charging, Guesture and Motion Detection. Out of those the iphone gets mentions in Camera, Voice Recognition, Fingerprint Unlock, and Wireless Sharing. Then when it comes down to it the iphone is downplayed or marginalized in all of them except fingerprint recognition. For Camera they said iphone used to be best but now the S4 is just as good. The High Scoring Android and Windows phones have lots of controls for editing pictures. For Voice Recognition they treat Google Now and Siri the same. For Wireless Sharing they say Samsung can send videos and stills to other phones using technologies such as NFC and WiFi. For iPhone they say they can play music to specially designed airplay speakers and share content with AirDrop. Finally in the ratings they give the iPhone lower marks in Messaging and Phoning. Whatever that all means. They don't explain what they are considering. I think it was all written in a biased manner.
