“iPhones are ‘No Match’ for Motorola’s DROID Lineup” Says Consumer Reports, Is This Good News for Motorola?

October 16, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Consumer Reports has put out an article about the Motorola DROID lineup on Verizon and the iPhone lineup that’s on every carrier. The site have been very impressed with Apple’s newest iPhone offerings (guess they have bad taste then…). However, surprisingly, Consumer Reports has said that they are still ‘no match’ for Motorola’s offerings. Motorola has four phones on Verizon right now, while only three of them are actual “DROIDs”. Their lineup includes the DROID Maxx, DROID Mini and DROID Ultra. Alongside the Moto X. Now I’ve already reviewed the Moto X and Droid Ultra, and just got the Droid Maxx in today, so that review is coming soon. I’ve been very impressed with Motorola’s 2013 devices. The only downside I’ve seen with the Moto X is the exclusive for Moto Maker, which is the only thing that keeps me from recommending the device to those on T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon.

According to Consumer Reports’ findings, Google Now and Motorola’s Always listening feature was a serious killer feature of the iPhones. Not to mention the Active Display technology Motorola is using on their devices this year. All of this means that Consumer Reports is ranking the Droid Mini, Maxx and Ultra above the iPhone 5S and 5C. Which is kind of sad, since the iPhone’s have always been at the top of the list. Surprisingly, this year I’ve heard a lot of Apple evangelists complaining about the iPhone 5S and how it’s actually slower than the iPhone 5. So it’s looking like the start of something bad for Apple. I’m hoping they don’t fall of the face of the earth like Blackberry, because we need competition. We may all hate Apple, but they are a competitor and even the mighty Android needs a competitor.

Now we might be a bit biased, well our name is ‘Android Headlines’, but we’d also recommend the Droid Ultra, Mini, Maxx or the Moto X over the iPhone 5S and 5C too. How many of you have picked up one of Motorola’s new phones?
