After months of waiting the world has finally been shown the Apple iPhone 5 and the response has been broadly positive. Support for 4G, a bigger screen and an improved processor are all seen a notable upgrades from Apple.
However, the same old design, a lack of near-field communication and a fairly hefty £529 price tag could put some off, especially as many other devices already on the market, and a few set to be released later this year, that could well prove more enticing.
With so much to choose from - the market has never been more competitive - V3 has put together a handy list of some of the main competitors to the iPhone 5 to help guide you through the plethora of manufacturers competing for your attention.
Honourable mention: Apple's own iPod Touch
A strange first option, perhaps, but as many commentators have noted, with the availability of so many apps that offer the ability to make calls and texts over Wi-Fi, the new iPod Touch unveiled by Apple could be a bit of a rival to the iPhone 5.
Simply download services like Skype and Whatsapp and you're good to go for voice and video calls and text messages, although admittedly without a Wi-Fi signal this plan somewhat collapses.
Still, you've got plenty of games to occupy your time and costing around $199 means it's far less of an investment than the iPhone 5 itself, which is over £500.
