Consumer Reports tests revealed that the latest iPhone is among the best on the market despite its map issues.

The iPhone 5 is ranked as “among the best smart phones in our Ratings and the best iPhone yet” by the magazine.

“A larger, 4-inch display; a thinner and lighter profile; 4G LTE access; and a host of innovative features all helped the iPhone 5 move up in the ranks, surpassing not only the previous iPhone 4S but also a number of other new Android-based smart phones,” Consumer Reports spokesperson Mike Gikas explained.

CR also concluded that Apple’s new Maps app is actually not so flawed, calling it “competent enough.”

“Despite the widespread criticism it has received, Apple’s new Maps app… is competent enough, even if it falls short of what’s available for free on many other phones,” Gikas wrote on the website on Friday.

“As Apple has recently apologized and promised to fix these and other map glitches, we expect the Map app to improve in time,” he added.

Despite complaints about the lens flare problem, Consumer Reports says that the device’s camera is very good.

They note that only the camera on Nokia PureView 808 is better than that of the iPhone 5 and that pictures taken in low light conditions are not different in quality than those made with the iPhone 4S.

“The iPhone 5 also improved on areas that the iPhone 4S did well, boosting the range of functions controlled by its Siri voice assistant, and making the already top-notch iPhone camera even better. Excluding the phenomenal 41-megapixel camera we tested on the Nokia 808, the iPhone 5′s 8-megapixel camera is the best we’ve seen on a smart phone,”

 Gikas writes.
