In Pictures: Forget iPhone 5 - 10 top alternatives to Apple

You may have heard: Apple just unveiled a shiny new iPhone, the iPhone 5. But there's so much more to the smartphone world than just iPhones. Here's a list of 10 of the best currently available or coming-soon smartphones to make you forget all about Apple.

Samsung ATIV S

Samsung's super-slim Windows Phone 8 device, the ATIV S, is a looker thanks to its chic design and metallic bezel. Its 4.8", Super AMOLED display is meant to view HD media in all its glory. A 1.5GHz dual-core processor provides the power you need to seamlessly perform work and personal tasks. Unfortunately, the ATIV S doesn't support LTE.

Availability: No release date is available, but the ATIV S's lack of LTE suggests T-Mobile may be the only U.S. carrier to offer the device unless an LTE version is released.

Notable Features iPhone 5 Lacks: New Windows Phone 8 OS; expandable storage via microSD card; and NFC.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
