iPhone 5 owners, Motorola Dinara and Android temptation

While we can clearly see that a lot of you are patiently waiting for Apple to announce their iPhone 5 device this Fall, we can also see that now has never been a better time to switch over to Android if you are yet to sample Google’s mobile OS.

Why do we ask this you wonder? Well, for the first time since we can remember, there are a number of upcoming handsets which seriously have the power to do damage to Apple and their iPhone 5. We all thought the Samsung Galaxy S and Nexus S smartphones were going to directly compete with the iPhone, but it didn’t happen.

Now enter the new contenders to take Apple’s mantle away, as we think Google can really do some damage with the likes of the upcoming Motorola Photon 4G on Sprint, the Google Nexus 4G and also the recently leaked Motorola Dinara, which we want to focus on specifically.

If you didn’t read our previous report which listed potential specs for this superphone, here they are again. The Dinara is touted to include hardware specs such as a 4.5-inch HD display screen, a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor at a minimum, 16GB of internal memory, Google Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 as the OS of choice, 1GB of RAM and possible 4G LTE connectivity which would easily make it one of the fastest smartphones on the market.

We’ve left one notable spec out which you may have heard about, and for good reason. The Dinara is meant to be equipped with a staggering 13 megapixel camera, and although the megapixel count doesn’t also reflect picture quality as seen on the 5 megapixel iPhone 4, it will surely appeal to a lot of consumers who will buy their next smartphone solely based on what quality of images it produces.

With this in mind, we have a feeling that the Motorola Dinara will be a prime reason in a lot of consumers shifting from the iPhone 4 to the Dinara on Android Ice Cream. Obviously, many of you will disagree with us here, but when you put the specs of the Dinara on paper, it makes it a formidable competitor not just against the iPhone 5, but any smartphone on the market period. Of course, Apple are yet to disclose official specs of their fifth-generation iPhone to the public, so we may still be in for a surprise yet.

If you are an iPhone 4 owner and currently on the fence as to whether to pick up the iPhone 5 or switch to Android, give us your thoughts on this. Is the Dinara a handset that you would consider buying ahead or the iPhone 5 or not?

If this Dinara does not have a qwerty keyboard I’m buying a prepaid phone and saving a fortune. Joansie!

While the Dinari specs are very impressive hardware specs are not the only consideration in whether or not I, and likely many others, switch to Android.  I’ve actually spent the money to look at both platforms and make a longer term decision on platform.  I understand “geeks” like to have bragging rights on hardware specs but it takes a little more to impress me than a 13 Megapixel camera.  To butcher a popular phrase, “its the usability stupid”. Yes, Android has done a spectacular job of copying the iOS UI and adding on enhancements.  Any good company always improves what… Read more »

Seriously, just waking up from a long nap? The Android phone specs, and the Android OS have been superior to iOS and iPhone for over a year now. I gave mine up for an HTC EVO 4G, and it makes my old iPhone look like a toy in comparison. Real GPS with turn by turn instructions, a logical notifications system, home screens with widgets with live data, system level integration of voice to text, and system level integration of apps, 8 mega pixel camera, larger screens,to name just a few.
