There are so many great phones hitting the market it can be hard to know where to invest your hard earned cash, especially as once you make a decision you’re tied in for up to two years. As such, getting it right is vital.
This is no doubt why our head-to-head video reviews always prove popular, with the latest, the iPhone 5 v Sony Xperia Z the most read, well watched, story of last week. You’ll have to watch it to see which devices ran out the winner.
Clearly the pressure is building on Apple, though, as analyst reports showed that sales of the iPhone are slowing as demand for Android devices – like the Xperia Z – rise and Windows Phone also grows its market share, albeit slowly.
Another interesting story was that of Rackspace hitting out at Parallel Iron, accusing it of being a patent troll. The story generated some strong responses in the comments sections from readers disagreeing over who’s in the right in the case.
Security warnings saw reports of malware hitting firms every three minutes of interest, and no doubt concern, to readers, while the risk of fraudulent apps on the Google Play store unveiled by Symantec also proved of interest.
The celebration of the mobile phone’s fortieth birthday also generated some interesting coverage and news editor Dan Worth’s claims the device as we know it will be obsolete within the next 40 years was well-read too.
