Top 5 Phones to Consider Before Buying the iPhone 5s [August, 2014]



The iPhone 5s is still Apple’s flagship and still one of the best smartphones on the market. However, before buying the iPhone 5s this month, we highly recommend taking a look at these five top iPhone 5s competitors.

Back in September, Apple took the stage and announced the gigantic elephant in the room, an elephant known as the iPhone 5s. Apple’s iPhone 5s had been rumored for months on end before it arrived on stage in early September. The device, as expected, featured the same design and screen as the iPhone 5 but came with some significant upgrades that propelled it to the top of the smartphone charts.

The iPhone 5s comes with a gorgeous display and design and it also features Touch ID fingerprint technology for added security, an A7 64-bit processor with an M7 co-processor, a fantastic camera, tons of storage, and iOS 7. Thanks to those features, a declining price tag, and an upcoming iOS 8 update, the iPhone 5s is still one of the best smartphones that money can buy. That said, there are some devices that we think consumers need to take a look at before committing to the iPhone 5s this month.

We are constantly bombarded with questions about which phones to buy. In particular, we’re constantly asked about the phones consumers should weigh against the iPhone 5s before buying it. There are a number of different devices that we could recommend, the smartphone market is full of solid choices, but we want to narrow things down a bit and take a look at what we consider to be the top five.

These phones represent the devices that we’d recommend to friends and family. And while our list may differ from yours, these are the devices that Gotta Be Mobile editors have selected for recognition this month. We feel like the devices listed here deliver the best, all-around package for this month and this month alone.

That said, here are the top five smartphones to consider before buying the iPhone 5s in August.



The LG G3 is finally here in the United States and it has quickly become one of our favorite smartphone options and a device that is certainly on par with Apple's flagship iPhone 5s.

LG's brand new flagship replaces the LG G2, a former iPhone 5s competitor, and it does so with some key ingredients including a beautiful QHD display, solid camera with Optical Image Stabilization, good battery life, fast processor, and a whole lot more. We like this phone and think it's one of the best Android phones ever made.

And because we consider it one of the top smartphone options on the market, we think it's worthy of your consideration during the month of August as you search for your new phone.
