Where Is iPhone 5?! 4S Sales Dip Below DROID RAZR MAXX (Report)

By  | 

Yesterday we saw a report on DroidLife with some interesting figures gathered by a network analyst, comparing sales in Q2 2012 of the Motorola RAZR MAXX and the Apple iPhone 4S on the number one carrier in the US, Verizon Wireless.

Where is the iPhone 5 already?

Apparently, in an unexpected turn of events, Motorola has been outselling iPhone significantly, and DroidLife puts this down partly to the strong marketing of the 4G LTE network by Verizon, which the RAZR MAXX can use, along with the actual specs of the device which are impressive. The specs include an excellent battery which sits at 3,300 mAh and can provide around 21.5 hours of talk time as opposed to the iPhone 4S which can provide around 14 hours of talk time and only 3G capable.

With WWDC 2012 coming and going with no iPhone 5 announcement, things don’t look too well for Apple whose star product is terms of sales is the iPhone. And with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 expected to hit US carriers by the end of the month, also boasting a significantly larger battery than the iPhone 4S and LTE, the only direction the Apple phone has to go is down.

If rumors serve true, we may only see the iPhone 5 sometime in the fall. Until then the iPhone 4S will have to continue fending off heavyweight Androids like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and rumored Motorola DROID RAZR HD which is expected to launch at the end of this summer.
