In Pictures: 10 best alternatives to the iPhone 5S

Just in case you were underwhelmed by the new Apple smartphones.

Samsung ATIV S Neo The Neo is a 2013 update, only on Sprint, for last year’s ATIV S. To be honest, it’s not a real iPhone 5 competitor, but it’s the most recent Samsung Windows Phone. Samsung improved the processor, now a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 at 1.4 GHz, with a 4.8-inch 1280 x 720 resolution TFT LDC display, and 2,000 mAh battery. The main camera is 8.0 megapixels.

AVAILABILITY: now on Sprint; with a two-year contract, the price is listed as $49.99, but that assumes 1) “instant savings” of $250, 2) “bring your own number savings” of $100 and 3) a mail-in rebate via “Reward Card” of $50.

WHY IT’S BETTER: removable battery, expandable memory

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.

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.
