Consumer Reports finished its testing of the new iPhone 5, and unlike some of its more controversial Apple gadget reviews, it seems to approve of the new smartphone wholeheartedly.Even with all the criticism of Apple Maps, Consumer Reports says the app performs adequately enough.
Here’s the gist of what Consumer Reports thinks of the iPhone 5:
The Apple iPhone 5 is among the best smart phones in our Ratings and the best iPhone yet, our completed tests confirm. They also conclude that despite the widespread criticism it has received, Apple’s new Maps app, available on the iPhone 5 and other iPhones, is competent enough, even if it falls short of what’s available for free on many other phones.
However the Consumer Reports doesn’t say the iPhone 5 isn’t the best smartphone you can buy, but it is among the best.
